I should have posted this yesterday, but I was so caught up with work.
My valentine word for this year: We love because He loved us first.
This also happens to be our watch word for the month. This days, we get so hurt so much so that we forget the reason for love; we forget what love is. The world, alongside our hurting hearts helps to define love, taint it with so much darkness and unfairness that we essentially forget that love is beautiful.
Love isn’t self-centered, it does not seek it’s own. Love is not vengeful or bitter or envious. Love is not a feeling, it is a nature, a lifestyle. Most importantly, to love is a choice.
And we love because God is love and God is our father and so love is our configuration.
