“Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers a multitude of sins.” 1Peter 4:8
I love Valentine’s Day; it is my favorite holiday. The reason I love this day so much is because I am encouraged to be the mushy gushy person I am! Valentine’s Day is not a day for people who are in-love, it is a day to share how much you love those in your life.
1 Peter 4 goes on to say that you must “use whatever gift you have received to serve others.” My love language is gifts. I have been known to send cards or handmade gifts to all my loved ones to remind them how much they mean to me.
To me, Valentine’s Day is a time to stop the rush of life and take time to make people feel loved and special. Having the ability to tell someone that you love them is truly a gift; which I am reminded each year. In 2011, my father passed away the day before Valentine’s Day. I am not bitter about this, but I never want to have another person leave my life without knowing how deeply I love and care about them. Take the time to call someone today and tell them what it is that you love about them!
This year I am able to work for Vi Bella – a company that lives out this idea of Valentine’s Day. Through the work that God had provided for me, I am able to love and care for my sisters-in-Christ every day. Giving the gift of Vi Bella: Beautiful Life for Valentine’s Day (or any other day for that matter) shows that you thought of the person receiving the gift, and it spreads the love to the Artisans who made the special piece.
So this Valentine’s Day, spread the love friends.
