I realize today is a tough day for a lot of people…
It’s the lovers holiday,
Single’s Awareness Day,
Market-to-saps Day, or whatever you happen to deem it.
I’ve heard it called just about every name in the book in the past several hours. There are very few people really DO feel loved. Maybe you’re one of them. For people that don’t have anyone, THIS IS the pain of life… a day devoted to dredging up and throwing in one’s face the fact that love doesn’t exist for them… that there’s no one out there who would defend them or die for them like that of a passionate Romeo-and-Juliet romance.

I truly believe that this blog post is very appropriate for the upcoming holiday, Valentine’s Day. I definitely understand Valentine’s Day is tough for people who feel that nobody loves them enough or cares about them in the least. This is when they start to think that Valentine’s Day should revolve around them and their lives because they are feeling a spark of self-pity that says, “Woe is me for nobody loves me.” However, just like you, I feel that God has blessed me with a loving family and an affectionate group of friends that I cannot imagine myself being despised or rejected by anybody. But even if nobody loved me or treated me with the respect that I deserved, then I would always remember that there is one person who always love us, unconditionally. This person is Jesus Christ, and if he didn’t love me, then he wouldn’t die or pay the penalty for my sins. Though many people may think that Valentine’s Day is all about romance, heart candies, and what-nots, I earnestly hope to take the time and reflect on his Christ’ love and and compassion for me. Clearly, I want to focus on the times when he has loved me enough that he created an immaculate heart, soul, and spirit in me.
Red is also one of my favorite colors because to me, this color is a symbol of Jesus’ love for all. This is why I love to wear red hearts on my hair on Valentine’s Day. 🙂
