My Thoughts on Valentine's Day ; February 18, 2007

I've had a good week. Wednesday was Valentine's Day. On Tuesday I was a grumpy Scrooge (as my mom put it) about Valentine's Day. Bah humbug.

I just don't like how Valentine's Day is so commercialized, how it requires you to buy candy and cards and all that. It should be a more honest holiday—we should be able to tell people we love them without giving them things. But then, why don't we be honest and tell people we love them every day of the year?

So, I guess the Ghosts of Valentine's Day Past, Present, and Future came to me, and showed me to appreciate the holiday. It's true that the specific day is a good place to begin, to get you to tell your peeps that you love them. Then hopefully you continue it throughout the year—keep caring, keep encouraging, keep laughing together, keep strengthening friendships.

I'm not a Scrooge about it any more. Yes, I did give some cards to my family and friends. :)

Here's a Bible verse, one of the many things that Jesus said about love: "A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another." John 13:34-35

So, what do you think about Valentine's Day? :)
