Do you celebrate Valentine’s Day?
Posted February 12, 2013on:
I’ve thought and thought and thought… until I felt like The Grinch, pondering until my ponderer wore out…
What is Valentine’s Day?
A day to share our hearts with our loved ones? Oh, wait, can’t give you a hug today, hun, gotta wait until Valentine’s Day…?
St. Valentine was a MAN, of that we are sure…ish. He was a Catholic priest, martyred in Rome in ‘maybe?’ the third century. (This is the one generally considered to be St. Valentine.) However… there were two others, (According to this Catholic Encyclopaedia). Not much is known of one (served in Africa) and the other wasn’t a priest IN Rome.
But that is NOT what I want to bloggle ya with.
I want to ask you, “Do you celebrate Valentine’s Day?” Do you celebrate it ON February fourteenth, or, do you wait until a convenient evening/day around the fourteenth? (Ie: This year it is on Thursday, will you wait until Friday or Saturday?)
Do you include your children? Your parents? Your friends? Your pets? Your extended family?
Do you try and do something romantic with your significant other?
Is it a day of romance? Happy memories?
Or of love? Your pet; your friends; your…?
Or of painful reminders? Bitter disappointments?
Will you spend money you’ve scraped and saved?
Or will you whip out that nearly paid off credit card?
(Or will you be all corny and romantic and present a handmade craft?)
Will you go traditional, flowers, candy, dinner, wine? Or something off the wall; heli-picnic; trip to Paris; base-jumping hand-in-hand?
It’s strange that we have just left a season of time filled with (supposed) joy, happiness and love and now we enter a day reserved again, just for that purpose. And not even recognised as a stat-holiday, either!
We’ve already been given the greatest love gift of all. EVERY single one of us. We just have to have faith, take hold and unwrap it.
The ultimate gift. The ultimate love. Don’t let it sit in the box on the shelf; open it, enjoy it, SHARE IT!
PS: I don’t have the flu… I am testing cold-remedy products… so far they all make me feel like I’ve got the flu… *see you in a week or 7-days; can’t hurry these things ya know…*
PPS: Being stuck inside all day has left me stir-crazy… IF I did it correctly, the above photo SHOULD take you to BibleGateWay.com… Just don’t want you to panic if I’ve done everything horribly wrong and it warns you your computer is being taken over by mind-numbing zombies or something…
PPPS: I went ‘insert-delirious’… now to see what it looks like after posting… (I’m tryin’ Live Writer again… don’t want to spread my germs too far afield… )
