There’s a lot of hype before Valentine’s Day.
“Will he pop the question?”
“Does she like me as much as I like her?”
“Where should I take my significant other for a romantic date?”
“I wonder which she’d like better … chocolate-covered strawberries or red velvet cupcakes?”
Will you embarrass yourself and do the big-time Valentine Day fail, scaring her away by presenting a giant stuffed green frog with a fuzzy pink “Be Mine!” heart sewn to its chest?
Perhaps you’ve done a Valentine no-no like I did one year when I wrote on my husband’s truck window with white shoe polish: “Wild Thing … You Make My Heart Sing!” (My husband has a fantastic sense of humor, but it just didn’t kick in the way I thought it would that time!)
Let me ask you, though … what happens after Valentine’s Day?
What if we keep loving every day, not just on Valentine’s Day?
What would the world look like? What would it look like for the people in your sphere of influence? What if we commit to do loving things, say loving things, write loving things, buy loving things on a consistent, daily basis … more than once a year?
I don’t think we can overdo it in the love department, do you? Love is what the world needs now … and everyone in our world needs love more than ever.
So, this isn’t a belated “Happy Valentine’s Day!” post. It’s Valentine’s Day every day.
Love, grace and peace,
