"Pastor’s Comment - “Happy Valentine’s Day!”
No sooner were Christmas and NewYear’s over, and the stores had stocked their shelves with Valentine’s Day stuff. And, I mean a bunch of stuff– red hearts, pink and red roses, balloons, cards, boxes of candy, even lounging pajamas with hearts. The list goes on and on.... Valentine’s Day is a special day set aside to remind us to tell and show the ones we love, that we really love them. (Did you know that more roses are sold on that day then any other day of the year?) But, as we all know, it is so important to let our loved ones know how special they are to us, all the year through. Just those little acts of kindness or hugs and pecks on the cheek can really brighten one’s day. As the Lenten Season is just around the corner, we are reminded of God’s love for us. He loved us so very much that He sent His Son to be born into this world, as an infant, only to be crucified on the cross for all our sins, that we may have eternal life with Him in heaven. He promises to never leave or forsake us, to answer us when we call day or night. You see, flowers will die, candy gets eaten, balloons will pop, and cards may get tossed away, but God’s love for us will never pass away. “Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed,” says the Lord, who has compassion on you. (Isaiah 54:10)."
