Every year we get to celebrate a day dedicated to love! It is a magnificent feeling we cannot own; we do not create or sustain it. The action of love is surprising, it wells up in us unexpectedly. Without love being alive would be flat and lifeless. Love is the one thing all humans aspire to, it fills us with joy and purpose. So open your heart to celebrating every day a Valentine’s Day! Find someone to love, at the very least look around and ask who is out there loving right now.
From John 4:7-10. Dear friends: let us love one another, for love comes from God.
Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God.
The other day while driving through the streets of San Miguel Allende, Mexico, I was feeling blue thinking the world is a mess. I continued with my interior grumbling till I woke up to what I was looking at. I smiled.
There was a man on a bike carrying his dog, a woman hanging out her laundry on a windy roof, her sheets were giving her a real challenge. I saw a boy walking with a cake, behind him two little girls about 8 years old were running to catch up, one had lost a shoe! I turned down the street and there was a bus parked sideways in the road while the traffic was waiting patiently. I looked around to see a guy with his pig. He was walking it like a dog; I wondered how that was going to end for the pig?
All this to say, Look around, life is not a mess it is happening with a billion individual trying to live in the world. We have all been born to live, so live well like Every Day a Valentine’s Day! Whoever you are and whatever you are doing, be generous with your love and notice the lives being lived around you are amazing.
