Happy Valentines day.

It is the worlds love day and it is important that with every wind that blows and every breath we take, we are consciously aware of what today signifies but first, here are few of what the bible says about love;

“Above everything, love one another earnestly, because love covers over many sins.” 1Peter 4:8 (GNT)

“And now I give you a new commandment: love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.” John 13:34 (GNT)

“Meanwhile these three remain: faith, hope, and love; and the greatest of these is love.” – 1 Corinthians 13:13 (GNT)

“If we say we love God, but hate others, we are liars. For we cannot love God, whom we have not seen, if we do not love others, whom we have seen.” – 1 John 4:20 (GNT)

“My commandment is this: love one another, just as I love you. The greatest love you can have for your friends is to give your life for them.” John 15:12-13 (GNT)

“For God loved the world so much that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not die but have eternal life.” – John 3:16 (GNT)

It is important we all love one another and today being a day marked out to celebrate love, it should not be a day you go about your regular routine of just treating your soul mate to a nice time but a day to join forces with your soulmate, family and/ or friends to put smiles on peoples faces.

Today should be a day of surprises. It is the little things in life that matters.

Give a little love, a little smile and a little kindness on it to someone who least expect it.

Give food to the homeless, help that old woman get on the bus, give a smile to that unhappy/ troubled face down the street, help that kid get what he wants from the upper shelf, give a helping hand, a kind word or just a smile to someone today.

It is okay to add a little bit of drama to it, after all we all know that today is the world loves day and it is the only day set aside when the whole world come together to celebrate love.

Be a blessing, be a friend. Put a smile on someone’s face today.

I love you all.
