The Great Valentine’s Day Myth

Dear readers,

Here we go again. Another Valentine’s Day or as I call it a day for SUCKERS. Valentine’s Day is a day for some women to hold men hostage for “A RING”. A few women will receive roses, that will dry up and die just like the relationship they are in. The majority of women who get excited on Valentine’s Day, do so because this is the only day out of an entire  year when their partner will express love towards them.

My hope for women on this Valentine’s Day is for them to know their own worth, and stop measuring how someone else sees their value. Women of all ages must understand the value of self-love rather than waiting for someone to show love to them. You are more precious than any DIAMOND RING. You have a beauty that Surpasses the life of any ROSE. Don’t buy into the myth that Valentine’s Day is that one special day to show your loved. The Bible says that” Love is patient, Love is kind, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hope, always perverse. ( 1 Corn 13:4-7) NIV. LOVE DOESN’T LAST JUST FOR ONE DAY. 

What Say You?

    I prefer it as a cute elementary kids’ holiday… other than that, just another excuse for date night. 🙂 Before that? Years agooo…. Eh… give me some popcorn and a good book. And I was just fine.

    I won’t deny I’m one of those Valentine’s Day suckers. I started receiving them when I was a little girl and still likes them. I can imagine what it is like for a husband to show affection once a year. Mine’s kissed me on the way out every morning and when he returned every evening. Told me every day how precious and pretty I was. We were married for a long time. So there are some marriages where a couple really love each other and shows it to their spouse every day.

      You are fortunate to have a partner that understand that expressing love day to day is meaningful. It sad for the couples who only chose certain occasions to express love. Happy V-Day

        Getting married so young (18) I didn’t realize there were couples who didn’t express affection to each other daily. I saw it with my own parents. I didn’t realize how blessed I was until after he pass away. But with the scenery most of the dates I have been since he passed. No thank you in what they have to offer. But I let a guy know up front if he intend to take up my time. He has better step up to the plate and better remember Valentine’s Day where I’m concerned or he don’t see me again.

    I was just having this discussion with some young friends of ours. It’s nice to have a night to go out but we don’t confine ourselves to expressing our love for each other to special days. To me, love is a choice and once I chose, I accepted that it was going to take hard work to keep the fires burning. 🙂 I don’t regret my choice. 22 years (almost 23) and neither of us are giving up.

      I agree. I enjoy going out on V-Day. My partner and I pick a place that is all decked out. We enjoy a meal that we night other wise can’t afford because most restaurants have a special menu and deal for V-day. We don’t do gifts. We just enjoy.
