So Valentines Day has come and gone. I would imagine the “lovebirds” were ever so mushy while others were heartbroken, disappointed or lonely. Valentines Day has always been known as a day for love ❤️ but why should love only be celebrated for one day⁉️ What about the other 364 days of the year⁉️ Are we not supposed to celebrate love the other days⁉️ Is this just a “Commercialized” holiday⁉️🤔 Retailers make some serious money 💵 on Valentines Day. Flower shops, greeting card companies, candy 🍭, perfume makers and other high dollar gift 🎁 makers profit tremendously from this holiday. But is it really necessary⁉️ So many women would argue that yes it’s necessary and that they better get a good gift 💝 or else….. Men are like “dang is it that time again”, made to feel guilty if they don’t do something for their girlfriend or wife.
I used to be like that. My feelings would get hurt 😔 if I didn’t get that special gift. I would be highly upset if the man I was with didn’t show me he loved me on that “special” day. I no longer feel like that and here’s why. Love should be shown everyday not just one day a year. My husband and I have been married for almost 18 years and I came to the realization that we show each other love all year long by the little things we do for each other. Whether it’s by him making sure I’m ok emotionally, mentally and physically or me letting him know how much I appreciate him. We let each other know daily that we love each other by not only telling each other but by our actions. Our love isn’t defined by what we can buy for each other, it’s about being there for each other during the good times AND the rough times. We celebrate our love daily‼️
Love 💕 isn’t a one day thing. Whether you have that special someone in your life or not love is a vital part of our life. We were created to love it’s in our DNA. The one commandment that is more important than any other is Love God with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind, and all your strength. The second is equally important: Love your neighbor as yourself. Mark 12:30-31. So you see, love isn’t to be shown one day but everyday whether with your significant other, a friend, family members or people in general. There are so many hurting people in this world that need to feel that love. Love is an essential need in everyone’s life.
So as I conclude this post, I will pose this question to you. How can you show love everyday⁉️ Who’s life can you change by showing an act of kindness, something so selfless that it can change the world⁉️ Some people just need someone to listen to them, others may need a shoulder to cry on, or some may need groceries or a financial blessing while others may just need a compliment or a simple smile 😀. Now THAT is what love is about‼️
Be blessed and remember to be a blessing to someone else,
