I’ve liked you with an eternal love Jeremiah 31:3
Valentines Day, as celebrated in lots of Western international locations, is meant to be a day full of presents (often sweet and flowers), lovingly worded greeting playing cards, and particular acts of kindness. But for a lot of peopleyoung and oldit is a day marked by an aching coronary heart. The one mom weighed down by burdens of obligations nearly too heavy to bear. A widowed man sitting quietly in his rocker with solely tears of reminiscence as his companion. The younger single lady wonders why she alone, amongst so lots of her buddies, is and not using a fiance or husband. The married couple who merely co-exist and not using a spark of ardour. The sweet is consumed, the flowers fade and most of the particular acts are sadly changed with much less loving gestures.
What occurs on February 15th? Is there a love that helps us bear our burdens, wipes our tears, satisfies our longings? Madeleine L Engle writes:
Certainly one of our kids when he was two or three years previous used to hurry at me when he had been naughty, and beat towards me, and what he wished by this monstrous habits was an affirmation of affection. And I might put my arms round him and maintain him very tight till the dragon was gone and the loving small boy had returned. So God does with me. I strike out at Him in ache and concern and He holds me beneath the shadow of His wings. Typically He seems to me to be so unreasonable that I feel I can not reside with Him, however I do know that I can not reside with out Him.
Thanks, Father, that your love doesnt depend upon my price or my reactions, that you simply liked me from earlier than the start of time, that your love can fill all of the empty areas of my coronary heart.
