On The Bright Side

Mary Howell


Tomorrow, February 14, 2013 will be celebrated as Valentine’s Day which inspires us to show our love to family and friends.  Valentine’s Day may be celebrated with a candlelight dinner or a simple card or note and let someone know that they are loved.


The Bible tells us that God is love and reminds us of God’s perfect valentine to the world which may be found in the verse, John 3:16. “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son so that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life”.


Many songs have been written about love.  Gospel songs tell about God’s love for us.  Popular songs are written to show affection to those we love.  When we sing love songs like Love Me Tender, Love Makes The World Go Round, I’ll Never Stop Loving You, I can’t Help Falling In Love With you, our hearts are warmed and filled with happy thoughts and precious memories of moments shared with a beloved companion.


On Valentine’s Day, more flowers are sent to friends than any other day of the year. Stuffed animals and chocolate morsels bring joy to a loved one  Beautiful cards of red and white brighten the day for those we love. 


Valentine’s Day is a good day to remember our physical hearts.  Heart disease affects millions of people every year.  We cannot afford to neglect the care of our hearts.


We need to have regular physical exams, eat healthy food and take time to exercise every day. 


Let us take the time to remember those we love on Valentine’s Day.


A single rose, a box of candy or a cheery phone call can convey the words, “I love you” and give those we love a day on the bright side.
