A renewed promise of undying commitment born of the kind of love that will weather every circumstance that the journey of life will throw at it.
“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.”
I Corinthians 13:4 – NIV
“If I think love as only tender, I errantly weaken it. But if I see it as the single force capable of changing that which by any other means could never be changed it remains tender beyond comprehension, but it is at the same time powerful beyond imagination.”
I would like to believe that what you need right now is to be loved. And it is my core sense that it would be entirely insufficient to simply be told you’re loved or to be inundated with a flurry of sweet notions that stir you but for the moment.
Rather, it is to say that your life is wholly deserving of the unflinching commitment of another life that is dedicated to partnering with you in both the joyous celebration of your victories, as well as walking with you through the deep disappointment of your most disheartening defeats. And it is on this most special day that I want to make it abundantly clear that I stand ready to be that person for you not just for this day, but for every day.
Happy Valentine’s Day
