Valentines 2012

To me, Valentines day is just a day of hogwash.  This day is so commercialized and so into the materialistics of buying superficial items such as flowers, candy, jewelry, and other stuff to apease the one you love.  I hate the idea that for some people out there, this is the only day that they express their love to their signifigant other. 

Valentines day should not be the only day a person shows love towards their loved ones,
it should be anyday and everyday! The thing is, is that I feel so bad for the kids, the youth of today.  They feel so much pressure to show off, buy stuff, and maybe this day they will ask someone to be their special someone. 

Now, don't get me wrong, I would love to have a special someone in my life treat me to goodies on this day but don't let this day be the only day he does it! I would love to receive treats and/or flowers just because it was Tuesday or just because.

As far as love goes, WE do not even know what it truly means to love if we do not understand
the love of God.

"For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life."  John 3:16. 
This is love, God's love.  
"This is real love-not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his son as a sacrifice to take away our sins. Dear friends, since God loved us that much, we surely ought to love each other."
1 John 4:10-11

This is love, God's love. 

It was such a treat yesterday to be with so many special friends.  God is so loving that He is Soverign, We GET to be a part of his work.  

Since we love God, are we loving others, not on this day of love, but all day and everyday as He loves us?
