It was only a few short years ago that I approached Valentine's Day with great dread in my heart... you see, I'd never had a Valentine (the lovey, dovey kind), EVER. I can hear the sighs and ooohhh, you poor thing...believe me, that pretty much sums up how I felt about February 14, years 198?-2008.
I would do the, "heck no", I am not going to dwell on what I don't have. Then I'd just try to ignore the
stupid day!! Or the next year, I'd go for the "who needs a man??" I had single friends and we'd all go to dinner and a movie. But let me just be honest. For some years, many years.. I just let myself cry, wallow in the sadness of not having found love and the loneliness that no one can understand unless they have spent MANY years as a single person.
I have to brag on my amazing parents, though... They knew how hard it was for me to want someone in my life for so long and how I "loved" love and wanted that. My sweet Mom and Dad would always send me flowers or buy me some sweet gift. They always reminded me of their love for me and never let me be alone.
Then of course.. after many years of waiting..many years of waiting and praying...
My sweet Dan came along. He was the ONE that I had prayed for and he is now and forever will be
It was love at first sight..
Love For A Lifetime
So if you're out there and you are alone.. keep praying for that special person that will change your life. If you've already found that someone and the dream hasn't been all that you hoped for..Ask God to remind you of what drew you to your spouse and made you fall in love with then. Remember that there is a True Love that comes from God. He gave His own Son for us.
John 3:16 “This is how much God loved the world: He gave his Son, his one and only Son. And this is why: so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life.
Happy Valentine's Day!!!
