Valentines Day used to be a big event when I was in grade school. Each child prepared a specially decorated box (shoe box) with a slit in it to receive cards from all our friends in our classroom. Some of our classmates made a “popularity contest” out of it. (The person getting the most cards was the “most popular”--according to the “rules”)I was never the most ”popular”: But it was a fun day filled with laughter and goodies. We all enjoyed seeing our teacher open her cards--knowing that she would be most pleased with “mine”.
In later years Valentine’s Day was more serious.
I looked forward to a card, a box of candy or flowers from that special person. Maybe it would even be signed with “Love”.
Our Father sent His Love to all who would receive His Gift--No popularity contest;no fancy rules or regulations--just simple faith in the Gift of His Son. And it was signed “I Love You”, Written in Blood
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him,should not perish but have everlasting life.”
John 3:16 KJV
