Why my heart goes pitter patter for Valentines...

In my eyes Valentines is not just some Hallmark day but a day to recognize everyone you love (Spouse, Friends & Family). Even though this should be expressed more often than not, what harm is it to make someone feel special? Anything that is for a positive outcome, I'm for it. To show gratitude does not require $ for chocolates, bears or jewelry. All it takes is a personal touch as a handmade card or spending some quality time with them. Here's a little biblical Valentines poem I love and thought I could share.

1 Corinthians 13
Valentine's Day is a day of love,
For showing that we care,
And if we read the Bible,
God describes love there:
If we speak like celestial angels
From heaven up above,
All our words mean nothing
If we don't have Christian love.
Love is patient, love is kind;
It doesn't brag or boast;
Love conquers pride and envy;
It is never self-engrossed.
Love is not rude or angry;
Forgiveness counters wrong;
Love stays away from evil
It sings a truthful song.
Love is full of trust and hope;
It always perseveres;
Love never fails; It's faithful;
To the Bible it adheres.
And if you give this kind of love
To your special Valentine,
You'll be loving right in harmony
With God's own sweet design.
