So there is this holiday today called Valentine’s Day. This is one I sit out due to not being married and not having a girlfriend. However, I do wish all of my readers a Happy Valentine’s Day. A few fun interactions with friends from other countries coming your way in this post.
My friends Diego and Camila from Brazil come to my Sunday morning group. Valentine’s Day in Brazil is June 12th. Sunday morning I asked Camila if she wanted to celebrate V-Day on Feb, 14th or June 12th. Camila answered- BOTH.
My friends Gregory and Bogdana from Ukraine are happy because Gregory got his first job in America. When they shared that with me Saturday morning, I encouraged Gregory with, “now that you are working, she can go shopping more.”
On a serious note, romantic love celebrated on Valentine’s Day is temporary. The love that is eternal is God’s love for us. God’s love for us is unconditional as Romans 5:8 says:
But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
And as Romans 8:38-39 tells us:
For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Nothing can take God’s love from us.
So whatever situation we are in, married, single, divorced, widowed, there is a love that is eternal that we can celebrate every day- God’s love.
Thank you for reading. God Bless.
