The Focus: Celebrating Valentine’s Day


It’s time to celebrate Valentine’s Day! This annual celebration has been set aside to remind us to express our adoration to the ones we love the dearest.

I was at the Hallmark store this week and the store was bustling with folks selecting cards and plucking up boxes of chocolates & sweets! All of this is an attempt to say “I LOVE YOU” to someone special. Hallmark was absolutely dripping in the color red!!

And yet, I read in a Christian magazine how many folks dread Valentine’s Day … as it only underscores that they do not have a significant person in which to share or express their love and heartfelt emotion. No cards, no flowers, no candy. Valentine’s Day is a lonely and depressing day for them.

Regardless of your situation – whether you have a special someone or if you’re alone – may I remind you that ALL OF US have received a Valentine note. The ultimate love note for us was written in red by the blood of Jesus Christ and sent to us over 2000 years ago.

For God so loVed the world,

That He gAve

His onLy



That whoever

Believes In Him

Should Not perish,

But have Everlasting life.

Without a doubt, you have someone who loves you incredibly!

Don’t wait … go ahead and open up and read your love letter from Him!!
