Valentine's Day Blahs

Sunday, February 14, 2010

Today, Valentine's Day is always a difficult day for me. I haven't even been on a date in 17 years, or received a Valentine in as long!

This year, while nothing has changed in that department, I will have the victory of knowing I love myself enough to be my own valentine by not overeating today.

I WILL stick to my new eating habits. I WILL NOT feel sorry for myself.

While I do not have a man that loves me here on earth, there is One Who loves me so much that He was willing to die for me. Jesus, the Lover of my soul. My best friend. As far as men goes, He is a pretty hard act to follow!

Until I love myself, how can the Lord trust me with someone else to love? I WILL become the woman of God that I was intended to be.

    I'm also celebrating Valentine's Day without a man in my life. I treated myself to a beautiful bouquet of coral colored roses - not fattening lol. Yes we must learn to love ourselves and be grateful for the love we have in our lives. So today I think of all the people who love me. I also went to church and know that God loves me. Later today, a couple in our church will be getting married and I will be going to the wedding. I bought them a bottle of pink champagne to celebrate. I trust that my circumstances will change when the time is right, and that the right person will come along then. In the meantime, I am grateful for the love I do have - two wonderful daughters, my siblings, my fellow church members and my friends. So I am blessed. I feel if we look at our lives outside the context of romance and within the context of those who love us, we can find a lot to celebrate on Valentines Day. I hope that I don't sound preachy, but know that you are loved and there are many on this website who are rooting for you, including me. Happy Valentines Day. emoticon
