I love the scripture John 3:16 ~ God gave so we could have everlasting life. If we could just stop there for a minute and think about the love that God gives. A way out of sin and mess ups of life. Looking into a mirror and knowing real love has just happen after we give our hearts to God. We must care about others, but not everyone thinks that is love. Let's read about love in the Bible.
1 Corinthians 13 New International Version (NIV)
If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. 3 If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.
4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues,they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10 but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears. 11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. 12 For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.
13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
I hope that you can turn your thoughts to God for his love and to prayer to connect with others. We don't always see things God's way or his timing. I have the timing of God to be perfect in my life and watched it in others lives too. I hope your Valentine's day is filled with love. I pray right now for the desires of your own heart to be met. God is working things out behind the scenes of our lives daily and I totally believe that. I also know that this day can bring so much sadness to lives and I'm sad for that. I do care and I hope this day is a good one for you.
