Love is in The Air...

February is just an amazing month to carry over the themed holidays of the fall and winter. Halloween, we celebrate fun and sweet pleasures by dressing up and having lots of chocolate. Then with Thanksgiving, we have an opportunity to view the blessings and rewards of the year past and to be appreciative of our friends and family that God has blessed us with. We even have the possibilities of praying for our enemies and even to put aside stressed relationships for a month following as we fulfill the Christmas treasures in December. Then New Year’s is a time to put away the old things of our life and seek hope for the coming year that we can be better people and open our hearts and minds to new adventures and possibilities. With each of these holidays, love is demonstrated.

I thought about this…the love that flows evenly throughout the year. God showed His love for us in each and everyone. He gave us the ability to create costumes and celebrate fun, then to offer our best and gathering with others to be thankful and share His gift of love through the gift of giving and receiving. Finally, we have the love of the New Year and promising to demonstrate this love throughout the next year. I am afraid I am repeating myself only to lead up to this month.

Love is indeed in the air. Through intimate love I was created and born during this month. God gave us Valentine’s Day, although the profits of card companies increases in this month more than any other, we can share one day with the one we love to say, of course “I love you,” but also to focus on that one person that makes our hearts soar.

So with this, I submit a challenge…create something with your hands for this Valentine’s Day. It doesn’t need to be fancy, but showing your love with something you made with your own hands demonstrates the time, effort, joy, and creativity of your love for another person. You don’t have a partner, spouse or significant other? Great, adopt a grandparent at a local nursing home or a neighbor or a veteran. The possibilities are endless because love has no boundaries.

Happy Love Month,
Love, blessings, and {{{Hugs}}}
