For so many, Valentine’s Day can be sweet, romantic, and full of warm remembrances of years of marriage or a meaningful relationship!! Valentine’s Day can be a celebration of a marriage or a relationship that has weathered obstacles and stood the test of time. These things are certainly “celebration worthy!”
However, there are those who walk into a very romantic holiday alone either by singleness, divorce, sickness, or loss! I can only imagine the loneliness that is experienced by those facing these particular situations. Valentine’s Day can, frankly, be a sad and lonely day! 😦
I am sensitive to the seasons of life that others may be in. I don’t have all the answers….solutions…or wise words. BUT I do know that in the midst of sadness or loss during a very Hallmark Holiday: I would wish all those feeling lonely or sad the HUGE knowledge that they have a Saviour who loves and adores them!! That they are fearfully and wonderfully made; they matter!! This is my heart today.
Appreciate and be thankful for what you have; be mindful and sensitive to those who are challeged~~reach out, include, invite! 🙂
