Valentines Day Everyday?

Last week we celebrated Valentines Day.  The day when we exchange cards, sweets, flowers and messages of love and devotion.  Wouldn’t it be interesting to celebrate the attribute of love everyday? 

Isn’t this what we are called to do? 

It goes beyond the romantic love we read about in novels and greeting cards.  There is the love of family, the love of friends and so many other channels of love.

Christianity calls us to love our neighbors as we love ourselves.  Now, there’s a challenge. 

How would the world change if we behaved with this Golden Rule in mind? 

I am still working on my resolutions for 2012 and they are going well however I am going to add one, celebrate love every day.  It surrounds us if we will simply look for it.  It can be found in the smile from a family member or the kind gesture from a friend.  If you look at life through the eyes of love the world becomes a warmer and beautiful place.  Sounds like an oasis, doesn’t it?  It can be our reality with a change of perspective.

I am grateful for the gift of LOVE!

Happy Valentines Day.


Post Hearts Day

It’s never too late to thank your sweetie… doesn’t have to be a grand gesture. Actually the small things may be highly underestimated and appreciated.
For instance, I love the fact that my husband takes out the trash, washes the cars and always makes sure they have gas in them. These are the most loving gestures that I TRULY appreciate and for the most part are much more meaningful than flowers which wither in days. Don’t get me wrong I like the flowers but its important to notice the everyday loving gestures all around us.

They are there…..we may just have to look a little harder.
Take a moment – thank your sweetie on days beyond Valentines Day..
I think you will be amazed at the response.

Smile and the world smiles with you!
