Valentine’s Day Is Everyday

All of the hoopla over Valentine’s Day reminds me of why I don’t really like it.  Don’t get me wrong though, I would not turn down flowers, candy, or a gift   A friend told me just a few days ago that I love too hard, well maybe I do, because I think that when you love someone Valentine’s Day should be every day.  Valentine’s Day is on Monday when I ask you how I can help you during the week with tasks or honey-dos.  Valentine’s Day is Tuesday when I leave a love note in your briefcase or lunch tote.  It is on Wednesday when I cook you a big weekend style breakfast before you head off to work.  Valentine’s Day is Thursday when I have the shower running hot and your favorite 100% cotton T and bottoms laid out for you on the bed.  Valentine’s Day is on Friday when I massage your shoulders after a hard day of work.  Valentine’s Day is on Saturday when we go our separate ways to run errands and visit with friends but make plans for a romantic Saturday evening together.  Valentine’s Day is on Sunday when we serve the Lord in worship service together. 

There is nothing wrong with celebrating Valentine’s Day, hopefully you make some wonderful memories. One day a year is not good enough to express an everyday kind of love.  And, sometimes it is not the stuff, but rather the things are done from day to day that says, I support you, I am here, I love you….
