Your Divine Valentine

Dear Caregiver, do you ever feel the sorrow of things lost? Do you ever miss the way things were in the past with your loved for whom you are caring? Does the approach of holidays such as Valentine’s Day make you feel melancholy and sad?

During those moments of sadness remember that the Lord loves you with an infinite love. He in effect is your Divine Valentine. He is sufficient. He alone can give you all that you need. Below is a poem that I found and published last year at this time.  I hope you will find it a blessing again this year. It is called Your Divine Valentine:

Your Divine Valentine

A Valentine may play a love song for you, but God sings you the sweetest love song in the universe.
The Lord your God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.” (Zephaniah 3:17)

A Valentine may give you flowers, but God sent you the most beautiful rose of all. Jesus.
I am a rose of Sharon, a lily of the valleys.  (Song of Songs 2:1)

A Valentine may bring you chocolate, but God provides you with something even sweeter, His Word.
How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth!”
(Psalm 119:103)

A Valentine may love you for a lifetime, but God loved you before you were born and will love you for all eternity.
I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with loving-kindness.
(Jeremiah 31:3)

Praying you're blessed by the wonderful love of God this Valentine's Day, dear caregiver, and always!
