Valentine's Day

I want to post about love. Love is a beautiful thing. Something that we don't see. However, we must see it worked out in actions. Today is that day everyone who has that special person in their lives gets them lots of material gifts. Woohoo. I mean, it's the thought that counts, right? But the thing is, if we put such an emphasis of getting flowers, chocolate, and maybe some diamonds for that special woman of yours, are we doing it the rest of the year through your other actions? I think love's more about all the small moments. How you treat your wife when things are going wrong. How do you respond when dinner tastes smoked. How about when the house has been through several minor tornadoes? Or the dishes have become a mini Everest? I think these are the times that tell what your love really is in a fundamental sense.

Sincerely,
A Lonely Person :-(

"Therefore if there is any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any affection and mercy, fulfill my joy by being like-minded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind."
--Philippians 2:1-2

Good stuff, Daniel.
I'm going to post a good deal more about this on my blog, but suffice it to say that I think brotherly love is really a non-factor in most American churches and homes. Sadly, I think we've relegated love to marriage.

Don't worry, man. In about 5+ years you prob won't feel so lonely... ;)
