On this Valentine’s Day I’m grateful for:
The love of God. The creator of the universe loves me. That’s pretty awesome.
The love of my wife. She takes care of me and our house with a loving hand and a quick wit.
The love of my daughters. Ava and Zoey - your hugs and laughter brighten my day. You girls are amazing gifts.
The love of my parents. With almost 40 years together, my mom and dad are wonderful role models and great people.
The love of my brother. Despite my treatment of you growing up (or maybe because of it?) we’ve grown into a great relationship and I’m grateful to count you as my friend.
The love of my friends. Those closest to me have helped me through the tough times and been there with me during the great times. Life without friends like you would be lonely.
It’s not just about chocolate and cards. Valentine’s Day can be a time to reflect on the kind of love learned about in 1 Corinthians chapter 13. Happy Valentine’s Day everyone.
