With Valentine’s Day on its way, can you think of someone who needs your love? It is easy to love those who are lovable. What about those who have brought pain to your life?
Perhaps in addition to sending a valentine to your loving wife, mother and sibling, consider writing a note of reconciliation; maybe a note to help mend a broken friendship or kinship. Sometimes the correspondence takes the form of an apology regardless of who is to blame. It may be rebuffed or no reply returned. However, sometimes stony hearts are miraculously melted under the power of God.
In the tragedy our family has experienced the past two years, for me time is too precious to hold grudges, withhold affection and ignore heart prompts for reconciliation. Hebrews 12:14 says it best.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
