It’s Valentine’s Day!
Happy Valentine’s Day from all your family here at Wellsboro Home Page! Valentine’s Day – also known as the Feast of Saint Valentine – and it’s traditions are observed on February 14 in many countries around the world. Back in 1913, Hallmark offered their very first Valentine’s Day cards. Today, the U.S. Greeting Card Association estimates that approximately 145 million valentines are sent each year in the U.S. Half of these valentines are given to family members other than spouses, usually to children – especially dads doting on their daughters. Valentine’s Day has become a day to express our love.
What is love? Webster’s dictionary defines it as a feeling of strong or constant affection for a person. The Bible defines love, in action, this way in 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 (from the New International Version – NIV): “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. Love never fails.”
Verse 8 is such a great encouragement and gives God’s hope to all of us. Love never fails.
Together, let’s make this year’s Valentines Day count. Remember, when you let special people in your life know that you love them, it doesn’t have to be expensive. It just needs to come from your heart. What comes from the heart touches a heart.
“Some of my most valued treasures I have tucked away for safe keeping are cards that my children made for me. Sit down and write a letter to your wife or daughter. Send a special card to your son letting him know how much you love him. Mom & Dad, you know what to do. What’s most important is that you remember. And then say it. And then show it. Happy Valentines Day!”
