dragoste - love, in Romanian.


Valentine's Day. A day to celebrate a love that you share with someone. Someone special & dear to your heart. There is nothing wrong with that, in fact, that is a beautiful thing! Yes, some may say it is a hallmark holiday, but who cares! Another day to feel special, & make someone else feel special too. I encourage it. So, dear friends, if you have a special someone, remind them that they are special to your heart. You don't need money, you don't need gifts, just your time & attention. So give it.

I do not have a significant other to share this day with, but I am okay with that. It warms my heart to see my friends status updates & tweets, pictures & posts about what they are doing today & who they are sharing it with. I thought today would be a bitter day for me, but it is not. I am single, lovin' Jesus, & observing that love is truly in the air.
If you are single, or miserable on this day, know that the God of this universe, loved you before you even knew what love was. His love is unconditional & never ending. Now that, that is something to rejoice in!

So blog readers, I leave you with one of my favorite Bright Eyes song, & hope it will bring joy to your heart & remind you of how special you are

Be blessed today.

This is the first day of my life
I swear I was born right in the doorway
I went out in the rain suddenly everything changed
They're spreading blankets on the beach

Yours is the first face that I saw
I think I was blind before I met you
Now I don’t know where I am
I don’t know where I’ve been
But I know where I want to go

And so I thought I’d let you know
That these things take forever
I especially am slow
But I realize that I need you
And I wondered if I could come home

Remember the time you drove all night
Just to meet me in the morning
And I thought it was strange you said everything changed
You felt as if you'd just woke up
And you said “this is the first day of my life
I’m glad I didn’t die before I met you
But now I don’t care I could go anywhere with you
And I’d probably be happy”

So if you want to be with me
With these things there’s no telling
We just have to wait and see
But I’d rather be working for a paycheck
Than waiting to win the lottery
Besides maybe this time is different
I mean I really think you like me
