Before you all misunderstand my title, I do not mean what some of you may have jumped straight to in your human thought process.
For goodness sake, it’s 3:30 in the afternoon where I am, and my girls are watching Shrek a few feet away. Also, I don’t promote that here, for anyone who came merely off the title.
What I mean is a love not guided in clothes and jewelry and a beautifully made face. Not defined by a teddy bear the size of Texas, and a box of chocolate.
I believe in God’s original design, Adam and Eve were naked because what we wear holds no value. And I believe there were no mirrors because what we looked like was not important. With sin, came vanity. If all mirrors disappeared today, could you love YOURSELF and others tomorrow? Take time to evaluate what really matters when it comes to love. Anything can be used for a lesson in good. So no, I am not against clothes or beauty. I just want you to know you can be very effective in giving and receiving love without putting those things on a pedestal.
To give love to someone in spite of their lack makes you full, and to reap a harvest of that in your own life is inevitable, in due time.
Seek to add value, and to show a love uncovered, vulnerable, transparent, and attainable. And I don’t mean just for others. Do it for yourself too. You are worth the love you give.
Tomorrow, if you are without a Valentine, you are still WITH love, and don’t let people around you be without it because it is not connected to a title. Sisters, brothers, parents, children, friends and colleagues all deserve the love you have to offer. And real love doesn’t care what day it is. 💕
