Valentines Day sparkles with shining moments –
times when I moved into His Steps
days when I’ve done the unusual, the unexpected
moments when my heart has practically burst with joy
when I’ve seen that special light in another eyes.
Valentines Day can be a difficult day
for those who have recently lost a loved one
or for those who do not know that they are deeply loved by the King.
On many a Valentines Day I’d stand for what seemed like hours
at the card counter
looking for just the right cards
for some very special women.
I’d write a short note,
and place it in the mail with a prayer that God would use it to bless another.
Valentines Day would come
and I’d be so happy knowing that I had done what I could.
My heart would want to write it in the sky
that God Loves YOU.
That He’s the One Who not only created you but also knows everything about you
and loves you still.
Oh, the wonder of it all!
His Love sent Jesus to pay the debt of our sin
and He lives today.
In a world that celebrates love
passing on His Love to another is greater still.
So many today hunger for significance.
In a busy, complex world that races from activity to activity
they feel lost
What better way to celebrate the day
than to let another know
that they are loved
and very important.
It takes so little
to make a big difference.
Dare to do something different this year.
Let this Valentines Day sparkle with brightness
that reaches out
Reach into the highways and byways.
Step into those places that few dare to go
with that glorious
and ever fresh truth.
You are loved!
