We had our Valentine celebration last night – mainly because the heart-shaped mini meat loaves I usually make for the day take longer than is feasible for a Sunday dinner after church. So we had a nice dinner at home, heart-shaped cupcakes, and cards. Jason and Mittu brought me flowers, and Jim gave me a card and a box of Lindt Lindor truffles – my favorite. 🙂
I’ve written in the past about things I love in connection with Valentine’s Day, silly and serious, from favorite poems and love songs to quotes and videos. But this year some people are on my heart who are alone, and I came across this the other day and wanted to post it. Or post it again – I shared it a few years ago. It’s true for all of us, whether we have a special Valentine or not:
A Valentine may play a love song for you, but God sings you the sweetest love song in the universe.
The Lord your God…will rejoice over you with gladness, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing. ~Zephaniah 3:17
A Valentine may give you flowers, but God sent you the most beautiful rose of all, Jesus.
I am the rose of Sharon, and the lily of the valleys. ~Song of Solomon 2:1
A Valentine may take you out to dinner,but God has invited you to the most amazing feast ever given.
Blessed are those who are called to the marriage supper of the Lamb! ~Revelation 19:9
A Valentine may bring you chocolate, but God provides you with something even sweeter, His Word.
How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth! ~Psalm 119:103
A Valentine may be far away, but God is always with you.
I am with you always. ~Matthew 28:20
A Valentine may give you something, but God has given you everything.
God…..gives us richly all things to enjoy. ~1 Timothy 6:17
A Valentine may love you for a lifetime, but God loved you before you were born and will love you for all eternity!
Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love…with lovingkindness I have drawn you. ~Jeremiah 31:3
Happy Valentine’s Day!
