It’s time for Valentine’s Day and the stores are filled with heart-shaped boxes of candy, roses, heart jewelry. It’s time for romantic dinners and even the littlest children exchange cards at school. I love Valentine’s Day!
But should we only show our love for one another on one special day a year? Yes it’s great to set aside a day, but shouldn’t we always express our love – just because?
From the day we were married, my husband Bill always gave me gifts – just because. He’d come home from the office with my favorite candy, or roses, and send me cards in which he would write love notes. In later years, he added emails. He would call everyday from work just to say I love you, miss you, or to let me know he was thinking of me. Just because…….
Just because. I think more these days about the elderly, the sick, the poor or lonely ones. Shouldn’t we show them kindness and love in some way – just because? I think that we all fall short at times. All of us are so busy. We love in such a fast-paced world. I am blessed to have several friends that go out of their way to show kindness. Sometimes I look back at my own life and think, WOW! How many days could I have taken some time – how many times was I just to busy? Just because…..
Why show love? Just because……we have the love of Jesus within us. Just because.. Jesus loved us enough to give us His all. Just because… we are His hands and feet. Just because… we are His light. Just because……of love.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
