Today is Valentine’s day. The day we honor love. The day we give cards and flowers and chocolates and jewelry to the ones we love as an outward expression of our love for them. Pink and red and hearts abound.♡
I celebrated last night with dinner and dancing.
I had a fabulous time rocking out on the dance floor to Roxanne. I needed to after all the truffles and chocolate covered strawberries I’d eaten! 🙂
I don’t know if I enjoyed myself more participating in the evening or observing the others there that were. You see, I’m a people watcher. 🙂 I love to watch people. All kinds. I find it fascinating how unique we each are yet how similar. Especially dressed up. And dancing.
My favorites last night were a pair of older couples who rarely left the dance floor and could have been possible “Dancing With The Stars” candidates and a man in a kilt sitting at another table across from us.
Did you know the kilt originated in the 16th century in the Scottish Highlands as a piece of clothing worn in battle? A man in a skirt sounds like a fight could be in order to me! But not last night. It was a Valentine’s day celebration. He was a lover not a fighter. I believe last night he was wearing it more as a ceremonial piece for the holiday celebration. A fine looking piece I might add. He rocked it with his long hair and sporran (man purse) on front.
Last night was all about loved ones getting together and enjoying each other’s company. Each in their own way yet each having the same innate desire to love and be loved. That’s how we’re made. That’s how God made us.
God is in the love business.
How about each of us make it our business to love as God commands us? Not just today, but every day! The world would by far be a better place!
Here’s God’s take on love in case any of you need a reminder what love really is all about. The ultimate definition of love.
I love you all dearly and wish you each a day of renewed love for one another. Today may you feel love, give love and eat a lot of chocolate! ♡
4Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
1 Corinthians 13:4-7
Love and laughter,
