The day after Valentine’s Day
Yesterday was full of chocolates, teddy bears, flowers, cards, I love you’s and sweet words, or an extreme awareness of the lack thereof.
Valentine’s Day is a great day to show others how much you love and care for them. Much of our society has interpreted that idea into making grand romantic gestures with pretentious and materialistic gifts, which makes the percentage of the population that do not have significant others, feel insignificant and crummy when they don’t receive a life-size teddy bear on this special day. But thankfully, that’s not how everyone is.
Many use Valentine’s Day to remind their loved ones of how much they love them with meaningful actions; some reach out to others they may not typically express their love to on a regular day; some remind others that this holiday shouldn’t be about romantic love, but all types of love. It’s the perfect day to love on someone without coming off totally creepy. But what about the day after Valentine’s Day?
Sometimes we need a wakeup call. A weekend retreat, summer camp, a vacation, a seminar: something to catch our attention and remind us of how we want to be living our lives. While Feb. 14th is a great opportunity to being super lovey-dovey, those loving actions shouldn’t end at midnight. The things you learn about love on V-day (how much people appreciate being thought of, how little gestures can go a long way, how love makes life sweeter) should carry over to February 15th, 16th, 17th, and on and on and on. 
God, who is love, created us to love. Love, the word itself, and variations of the word, is used over 500 times in The Bible. Jesus is all about love, which means we should be, too. (1 John 4:8, 1 Corinthians 13:1-13, Matthew 5:43-48, 1 John 4:16, Romans 12:9-10, 1 John 3:16-18, 1 Peter 4:8)
Every day should be a celebration of love, not just February 14th.
