A day to think about romance and love.
This morning, even though we will have been married 46 years in June, Marilyn delighted me with a lovely romantic card. It made me feel great. Yes ladies I also had a card and gift for her.
I have often wondered where the idea of Valentine’s Day came from (Yes I know I should know these things but I didn’t) so I looked at Wikipedia where it tells me that Saint Valentine’s Day, commonly shortened to Valentine’s Day, is a holiday observed on February the 14th honoring one or more early Christian martyrs named Saint Valentine. It is traditionally a day on which lovers express their love for each other by presenting flowers, offering confectionery, and sending greeting cards .
How interesting so it is actually a day with a Christian background. A day remembering martyrs. But what has that got to do with love?
Well according to the bible Jesus demonstrated His love for each of us through His death on the cross. There can be no greater demonstration of genuine love than a willingness to die for the one you love.
Do something romantic
I am not suggesting that you die for someone today but do something romantic! What are some romantic ideas for today? Card, chocolate, going out for a meal, a small and personal gift. The list could go on but how about this for a suggestion.
I realise that most of my readers are saying something along the lines of “If only we could afford to do that”. Well we can help you with the cost.
