February 14

I'm no expert on love, but I do know how great it feels to be loved. Today is a day that has been dedicated to showing love in an extraordinary way. Many people make dinner arrangements, order flowers and candy, and go beyond the norm in their expressions. Love is so special to God that it's even a biblical commandment! There is a segment of society that is angry all the time; my theory is that they feel no love therefore they give no love. If you dare, try to be kind to them and show you care. There was a woman who worked at the deli counter at my local grocery store who always had a sour look on her face. I never wanted her to wait on me. I decided to reach out to her and strike up a conversation. I watched as her angry face perked up into a smile and now she's as friendly to me as can be. It's not that hard to show loving kindness; remember to do that today and every day.

"Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?" And he said to him, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. Matthew 22:36-39
