love never fails happiness

Today is Valentines Day.

I do not participate in the ‘hallmark’ quality of this holiday, I think the excessive gift giving and over abundance of stuff to show our love is not my style.

I do however love the purpose of this holiday. The obvious reminder to openly show our love to the special people in our lives. To show to our parents, our children, our partners and our friends how much they mean to us. I love that on February 14th, we are reminded to live our life full of love and happiness. I love that we are pushed to show our loved ones our deepest feelings for them. It feels so nice to be reminded of one of the most uplifting feelings in the world, love.

Today I am thinking about my wedding day. Seems like a pretty normal thing to think about on valentines day, but I am thing about it for more reasons then one. I am thinking about how I was full of love for Courtney, and how I was excited to be marrying a man who is my best friend. I remember feeling full of love towards my family and friends who helped us out tremendously to get the wedding planned in three months. I also remember being so happy and brimming with excitement and love for the anticipation of my twins, for our new family. That day was full of love, anticipation and excitement for the new life that was coming to be.

Today I am feeling the same way. By reminiscing in these feelings, I am feeling the love all over again.

Love is patient
Love is kind
Love does not envy
it does not boast
It is not rude
it is not self seeking
it is not easily angered
and it keeps no records of wrong.
Love does not delight in evil 
but rejoices in the truth.
It always protects, 
always trusts, 
always hopes,
always preserves. 
Love never fails.

Corinthians 13 1-13

Have a day full of live and laughter!

Much love,
