It's Valentine's Day. A day to eat heart-shaped eggs for breakfast and cupcakes for lunch.
We are having a great day. More relaxed than a regular school days, but way more creative. I do love this day. I'm wearing pink. And pearls.
Just thought I'd pop in and suggest a couple old blog posts to inspire your romantic day! Because I've noticed a little apathy about today from my sisters-in-Christ and on Facebook. Here's my nicest, sweetest, dripping with honey and served with tea and scones scolding to all of you, women and men, who have nothing planned today.
The first blog post is This Feeling of Love In The Air. A little reminder that today is about giving, not just receiving. And hopefully it'll be inspiring you to go spread a little love around.
The second blog post is In Honor of Valentine's Day. Here's a teaser: The prophet Hosea showed us that God doesn’t just care about His people (like I care about the neighbors, the homeless man on the corner, my mother, my friends, or my favorite show on television), but that God is actually aroused by His people.
Go read both posts. And if you haven't gotten your romance on today, go dip some strawberries in some chocolate, make your husband's favorite meal, or read some sonnets at the top of your lungs. Sometimes you have to stir it up a little. (You knew that, didn't you? You didn't expect every feeling and action to function in and of itself, did you?) Romance sometimes is an act of the will.
