Am I the only one who has a hard time with the fact that roses go from $10 a dozen to $50 (or more!) around Valentine’s Day? My husband doesn’t bring me flowers on Valentine’s Day after 20 years of marriage because he knows that I will be ticked off if he spends that kind of money–but I’ll definitely accept a bouquet of tulips or a HomeGoods gift card!
It’s easy for me to say that Valentine’s Day isn’t a big deal because I have a hot date for that night (hot date means that we’ll fall asleep by 9:00pm together since we’re as wild and crazy as it gets). It often means a bit more to those who either haven’t found that person yet, or have found them and lost them.
But the love that we really should be remarking on and celebrating is the love that was shown to us by Jesus, because that’s the love that never fails, never disappoints, and never ends.
“This is my commandment, that ye love one another, as I have loved you.” John 15:12
Have a lovely Sunday, and thanks for stopping by.
PS No, I didn’t forget that the SuperBowl is tonight; check out this sausage dip recipe if you’re looking for a yummy football food.
Love this Christy!! And so true.
I agree re: the cost of roses! I think it’s so unfair that florists and stores increase the prices. Some grocery stores in this area set up tents in the parking lots to sell more. Restaurants change their menus and charge extra. I don’t have a “Mr” but if so, I’d prefer tulips or daisies any day! I’m not a candy person so that’s out too. 🙂
I like to focus on others and share baked goods, little bunches of flowers or a small homemade item. I kinda think that’s what Jesus would want us to do!
Love the heart with the cross!
P.S. I’ve noticed some changes on the blog…very nice! I do miss the black & white at the top. 🙂
