This is not a moaning and groaning Valentine’s post. I’m not hating it or renaming it Single’s Awareness Day or wishing that I had a man. I’m perfectly content and happy.
I also am not pretending that I do not want to be married someday. That I would not be happy if next Valentine’s day sees me with a special someone.
This Valentine’s day, all that seems trivial.
This Valentine’s day, I am just happy that we are all together. That we are all here together as a family. So much could have happened and by God’s grace, we are all here together as a family. And what does it matter what happens or what we do, as long as we’re together?
This Valentine’s day, I am reminded more than anything else of God’s eternal love. The knowledge that we are always held “in the palm of His hand” and that he he will always “raise us up on eagle’s wings“. That his grace and peace are always there when we need it. That He is always, always there for us.
“For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” – Romans 8:39-39
