For my late husband and I Valentine’s Day was a huge deal. He proposed to be on Valentines Day in 1998 and it was a beautiful occasion. From that moment on we celebrated big time. Now we showed each other love all the time but on that day, we increased it big time! We had an amazing love story, filled with ups and downs, joy and laughter, some hard times some wonderfully blissful times. I thank God I was able to experience that love with my husband as he was an extraordinary man! I know he loved me and I loved him. We have so many wonderful memories together and I cherish them all. I’m sure I don’t have to say it but yes I miss him. A lot.
What’s amazing is that there is someone who loves me even more than my husband did. We have to remember that even before we were “coupled” there was someone who loved us and still does. Who is that you say? GOD! He has loved us from the very beginning. He loves us with an everlasting love. So although your spouse is no longer with you, remind yourself on the days when you feel alone, on the days that no one gets it, on holidays like this one, that God always loves you and He’s there with you. He promised that He will never leave you or forsake you. As a matter of fact GOD is love -I John 4:8.
One more thing. Think about the people in your life who love you, the ones who show you they care, the ones that haven’t forgotten about you. You know who they are- love on them! Don’t forget to show them love not just on Valentines Day but every day.
