Personally, I never liked Valentine's Day. People who don't have a "significant other" often feel lonely and left out. People who do have significant others often feel cheated out of something that they think should bring them joy, but doesn't. Sometimes our expectations exceed the reality. For a lot of people, Valentine's Day spells disappointment. That's why I never liked it.
Also, I don't believe that one should wait for one special day out of the year to show our love to those close to us. We should do that daily!
There is One who never disappoints, who loves us unconditionally, who never lets us down. He may not bring us flowers and candy, but He promises never to leave us or forsake us. His love never ends, and it doesn't depend on our performance. Jesus wants to love on you today. If you're disappointed with unmet expectations from your loved one, or if you're lonely, wishing you had that special someone, take heart (oh, excuse the pun). Jesus loves you. It sounds trite, because we've heard it so many times, but it's true! And there is no greater love.
My beloved is mine and I am his
(Song of Solomon 2:16)
Happy Valentine's Day
