Today is Valentine’s Day and I don’t have a valentine. And I am perfectly okay with this. For some reason, I always imagined my first Valentine’s Day out on a date, and receiving flowers… a very special day!
But I don’t need to be on a date and getting flowers for it to be a special day. It is already a special day! For starters, it is Thursday and I’m already sacrificing this day out of love for my Savior. This day is set aside for my one True Love who is the Only One who can satisfy this longing!
And who needs flowers when I receive unending gifts of mercy and grace! Who needs a special “date” when I get quality time with my Lord and Savior! My first Valentine’s Day celebration and I am with the Greatest Valentine of all!
“Lord this is my love story. You play the main part.
My Hero, my Lover, from the moment you stole my heart.
I knew you as my Loving Father, my Redeemer and my Friend.
But now I know that You complete me, You’ll stand with me still the end.”
