Valentine's day, is just a cute holiday. It can be deep but it really doesn't have to be. What's so bad about sending cards and candy to people you care about?

As someone who has more often been single on V-days than in a relationship, I think we need to be careful not to exclude our single brothers and sisters - especially the sisters! Valentine's Day can be a very lonely holiday for many people, and while it is nice to send gifts & flowers to people you care about, it can be really hard feeling like the only person in the office who isn't in a relationship, especially since Valentine's flowers tend to be the biggest and most impressive of the year! So don't forget your single friends, and if it doesn't bother you not to get an enormous bouquet of flowers on V-day, ask your man to send them to you on your birthday or another day instead :)

i haven't ever had a valentine who sent me stuff but that hasn't stopped me from enjoying the love God gives. I spend valentines reconnecting to Christ because HE is love. He reminds me of how deeply he cares for me, I am romance by the creator each time. The romantic in me has embraced this month to always claim Jesus as my valentine. I remind myself of his great love for me in God sending his son to die for me. ( 1john 4:10 and psalms 103.)I meditate on his unfailing love his love that endures forever!

He loves you the creator of the universe loves you! How carefully he creates u (psalms 139) he knows u completely. He keeps us safe and cares for us (psalms 23) it's overwhelming if you just sit and think about all the ways God loves on us.

I pray this month eph. 3:16-19 "I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your heart through faith. And I pray that you being rooted and established in love may have power... To grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ. And to know this love that surpasses knowledge- so that you may be filled to the fullness of God. "

:) He loves You so deeply! I encourage you to bask in His everlasting love because its amazing! It can get lonely i know (single girl right here!) but hello we have an awesome God who loves us.

So valentines day I think we should celebrate love. Starting with the greatest commandments Love the Lord your God with all your heart soul and mind.. and the second love your neighbor (whether that be your significant other, family, or stranger) ... I say encourage everyone in love everyday.
