Valentine's Day is almost over. It's a day to demonstrate love to our special someone. But my heart goes out to the people who don't have a spouse or a special person in their life.
Our culture makes a big deal out of Valentine's Day. I know that selling cards, candy, jewelry and flowers is a business. However, many people who never receive those gifts can feel ...let down and unloved.
On Saturday morning, I had a coffee for a few of my neighbors and this very topic came up in our conversation. One of my friends is a widow who greatly misses her husband.
I mentioned that Mother's Day can still be a bit difficult for me as I was unable to have children and my own mom died five years ago. Of course, life goes on and ...I'm able to be happy for others.
But there can be a hurt in our hearts and in reality no earthly relationship can fully satisfy that piece of our heart.
Sara Dawn, my friend and blogging buddy of Splashin' Glory shared a beautiful message the other day. I added my comment to her post and she wrote back to me such words of blessing and kindness.
May you feel loved perfectly as only your Heavenly Father can love you.
Blessings and love,
