Happy Heart Day! When I was a little girl, I remember growing up always wishing that my birthday was on Valentine’s Day. I love the hearts, flowers, candy, and all the things that Valentine’s Day brings. I’d think to myself: “How cool would that be?! To have your Birthday associated with all that fun stuff?! I do not wish my birthday was on Valentine’s Day anymore, but, now I’m just thankful that I get a day to emphasize my LOVE for the men in my life. V-day is also the day before Hoku and I went on our first date. (You could say it is our dating anniversary). I get two back-to-back days of all that sweet-heart filled Mushy stuff!
We read it in scripture, we hear it in sermons, but I never could fully grasp the concept of how God could love and love us so unconditionally! He loves us NO MATTER WHAT! Once I became a mom, I have a better sense of the weight of His perfect love. We are His beloved! Even our love for our own children falls short in comparison to how much God loves you and I! It’s so crazy to fathom! I will always thank my boys for helping me to better understand God’s love! They teach me things everyday.
Whether your worldly expectations are met on Valentine’s Day or not, just remember how much you are valued and treasured by the One who has paid the ultimate sacrifice for us all! Happy Valentine’s Day. You are so loved!
And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love.
