1 John 4:7

 Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God.

Today, February 14th, is Valentine’s Day. If you have not yet purchased that card, a romantic gift, or whatever, you had better get busy! There is very little time left to get that special something which will demonstrate in a meaningful way the feelings of love for that special someone in your life.

Unfortunately, there is phony (or fictitious) love present in our world that is often the result of selfish and greedy emotions.  People often want things for themselves and use love as a tool to obtain what they think will satisfy their demands.

If my precious wife, Joyce, was still alive we would be celebrating 66 years of marriage this July.  I can honestly say that my love for her is far deeper even though she has gone to be with our Lord. There is an important reason for our successful life of love and growth together — we kept the Lord at the center of our marriage.

Perhaps the greatest gift you can give your loved one this Valentine’s Day is to share together the precious love of God; commit yourself to allow His love to be expressed through you in your actions as well as in your words.

Blessings dear hearts. Draw near to God today, trust Him completely and be a blessing!
