Happy Saturday to you!
Valentine’s Day is only hours away. Many of you are preparing to celebrate the special persons in your life. Some of you are awaiting this weekend (and the pressure that comes with) to pass by. No matter what your relationship status is: love is for everyone. None of us can live our entire lives alone. Life is most meaningful when shared with others. Just as we need air to breathe and water for sustenance, love is also essential to our survival.
This weekend, take time to think of the persons who love you. Consider those who give their last to make sure your needs are met. Consider the people who care for you and support you through your highs and lows. Celebrate the people in your life who love you without conditions or stipulations. Celebrate them. Learn from them. If you are reading this post and you cannot think of a single person who loves you, know that there is one.
God loves you. When you're at your best and when you're at your worst, God’s love for you is steadfast. If you have no one to celebrate, know that you can celebrate God. God rejoices at your existence. He is filled with joy when you are doing well. He is filled with pain when you are hurt. He is uneasy when you are in dangerous situations. God is ready and willing to deliver you out of harm’s way and position you in a safe place.
This weekend, you have a reason to rejoice in love. You don’t need a bouquet of flowers, cards, or candy. You can simply bask in the fact that you are loved. Make sure you show love to someone who needs it. Love is not a physical touch. Love is not a material gift. Love is supernatural. Love is transformative. Love is accessible to each of us. That is something worthy of celebration.
