Hubby and I have always chosen a family dinner and gathering for Valentine's Day as we all celebrate the love we have for each other. During our blessing tonight, Hubby read my mind as he prayed that God would help us to love others as He is the ultimate example of what that love should be. This day is much more than a card holiday, although the cards and flowers are certainly nice. It is a day that reminds us of how we should feel and act every day, in a spirit of love toward those special people in our lives. We should never take for granted the opportunity to say "I love you," for we never know what the future holds. I was also reminded today that we are supposed to love even those people in our lives that are difficult to love. That's a tough one, but, "we love because God first loved us."
