"V for Ventriloquist"

It's Valentine's day. Remember what it stands for? Love, love...sweet, warm, whispering, stirring, fingertip, timeless, magical love. Yes folks, as dorky as "magical" sounds, what else can change the worst possible day into the best possible day just by taking your hand and walking with you? What carries us, holds us, sustains us, fills us... not boyfriends, not husbands, not girlfriends or wives--Love.
I'm sort of irked by these things that people say about disliking Valentine's because they're alone, or because it's a slap in the face to people who "don't have love" or "don't have anything to celebrate." It seriously makes me wonder what missionary group they're in. If you're in the Family, you've got love--whoever you are, however "alone" you feel. Heck, even I probably love you! And if a silly little kid like me can love you, how much more love do you have in Jesus, who is definitely the boyfriend that deserves a little recognition on Valentine's day.
And even if all the rest of this stampeded out of your life, if there was no Family backdrop and no props like friends and family, and you were alone on an empty stage...you'd still have the only love that's really worth celebrating. And even though being alone with Jesus usually is more tears and unworthiness than "celebratory" feelings, celebrate while you cry and celebrate while you grovel at His feet, because you have Jesus in your life, and you have Love, authentic and pure. Who needs carbon copies when you've got the Original.
Happy Valentine's Day. Jesus and I love you.
