Loving God, Loving Me & Loving Life

18 Feb

Hey y’all, Trust we all had a beautiful valentine’s day.


I know some people for reasons best known to them, have mixed feelings about celebrating Valentine’s Day (Or, down-right, do not like it). I guess it’s a bit understanding because like most things with human (societal) factors, it has been interpreted and reinterpreted so much so that its original significance has waned. As a result, it has become just another day with too much material interpretation…

Ultimately, I think the original idea of Valentine’s Day is so beautiful; a special day that is just all about Love (And I love Love). That special day (Just like thanksgiving, birthdays and Christmas), when we reflect upon the love of God in our lives and how this love has translated into other special things. It is that special day when we, as humans, are reminded that we are in fact love-beings (created and fashioned in Love) to show forth love:

 Love for God (Who has given us life)

Love for our family and friends (Who add beauty and colour to our lives)

Love for Life (Even though it comes with its challenges, it also comes with hope and helps us remember that we have a lot to be grateful for and to always keep it real)

Love for yourself (Because there is no one else like you and you are beautiful in your own way)

Love for people (That we are all first and foremost, individuals and everyone needs to be reminded every now and then that they are special, especially kids).

Love for that very special someone in your life (Because they love you enough to see beyond your vices and put up with your sometimes frustrating {otherwise known as unique} personality).


So yes, Valentine’s Day is a very special day because it is all about Love. Not to say we shouldn’t show love every other day, but just that, if you haven’t been showing or saying it enough, it is a day to make up for it.

Even though the day is past, I am still in the love zone;

Loving God for his abundant love and mercies towards me.

Loving life because it accords me the opportunity to live, hope and love.

Loving me because like I said, I am unique (beautiful and frustrating in my own way).

Finally, if you don’t like Valentine’s Day that much, I suggest you re-evaluate the idea.

And if you didn’t celebrate it, I suggest you do. Any day could be your Valentine’s Day.

I love y’all JOCM followers and readers. Thank you for being a part of my world and taking the time to read my lengthy posts.

Hugs & Kisses

    First of all, how are you going to pay me for this title though? Secondly, I view Valentine as a day where we puposefully show love to others especially those who usually don’t get it. Although they shouldn’t be neglected on that day, I don’t think it should be about selfish love for one’s spouse or partner and all that balderdash.

    Imagine paying a stranger’s transport fare, picking up the beggar on the street and giving him a makeover + nice lunc, buying coffe for someone or going to that old woman who’s never had a break. You know? Such random acts of kindness that would help people understand God’s love and the true meaning of Valentine.

    I try to always make Valentine happen for the next person around me and not focus on my lover. I mean, we have 365 days to love our partners, families and friends! Just my 2 cents. Please T, show me Valentine and buy me that sexy red bag, thank you *wink*

      @ Ormainy, hahaha. I guess I do owe u for d title. It just kind of stuck in my head *winks*.

      I do agree with u to a reasonable extent. It is a day to show forth God’s love. Afterall, some of the fruits of righteous are love, kindness and goodness. It not only reaffirms our faith, it also makes us better people.

      However, I dont think it has to be one or d other. Why not all? Why not people (strangers), family, friends and yes, that special someone in ur life. There can never be enough expression when u truly love someone, can there????

      About that bag (not sure which one we are talking about), we will have a side bar *smiles*
