If you don’t know already let me clue you in, February 14th is my most favorite of all holidays! (smile ) This is a day when I can offer gifts of love freely and of my choosing just because of love! I love that day, not because the world has chosen it as a Hallmark Day, but because it reminds me of why I love God and why He loves me! Further, it is on that day we use word pictures to reveal our love for another.  For example; King David begins I love you, Lord! But why? Better yet, why do you and I love God?

He writes: I love you Lord because you are my source of strength when I am in the pit.  I love you Lord because I can trust you to be my strength when my human strength is failing. I love you Lord because when I call unto you I am delivered emotionally, spiritually and sometimes, yes physically. When life is just too hard to bear I can know that you, God, are there. You are there in the chaos and you are there in the calm. I love you Lord because you may be in heaven but I am here on earth, therefore, may my words be few but offer a sweet aroma of my love to You. You are my rescuer, my vindicator, my deliverer and for that I am thankful.

Just sayin’ ahead of time…Valentine’s Day is my favorite, so now my question to you is this: If King David could join us this day he might say, so what would your early Valentine message say?
