Love is in the air. Love is in the mall, on TV, it’s on the calendar, today is Valentine’s Day. There is no escaping it. Unless…unless cupid’s arrow just soared right past you.
Love is amazing! It is inspiring, intoxicating, wonderfully ruining! With any great thing there is…well, not having that great thing. There is hurt.
There are those that want to skip right past February 14. Single, lonely people that fear they will never find someone to share their life with. Or even worse, those that are sharing their life with someone that they wish was different or just not there. There are sons longing for acceptance from their fathers and receive rejection instead. There are teenage girls giving everything away searching to be loved.
How is there any comfort?
This Valentines, those that share a good marriage celebrate. Wonderful! Children in loving homes celebrate. Great! Those blessed with friends celebrate. As they should!
But all of this is nothing. Nothing in comparison. What?! Friends fail us. Spouses screw up. Parents fall short.
But there is a love that is perfect. A love that never leaves. One that gave it all to be with us. Someone that knows us intimately.
And that is the best reason of all to celebrate!
HAPPY VALENTINES DAY!
