perspective: february 14th....


Soo, Valentine's Day is coming up and three words pop into my mind: Ew, blech, and ugh.
I honestly have to say that holiday just.... It irks me! But don't get me wrong, I am absolutely, 100% sure that that'll all change when I have my hubby by my side, but right now, it's kind of, really, freakishly x1000 annoying. 

This year, I do want that to change, though. I want to see Valentine's Day in a new, prettier perspective... A perspective that's not just "This is the holiday I can't celebrate because I'm single. This sucks." A perspective like.... Like this:
(My goals for 2011 Valentine's Day)
+Wanting to fully lean on the love of God and learn more about what His love is. 
+Truly understanding God has a solid plan for my life and that I am absolutely fearfully and wonderfully created (you catch that? [: ) in His image.
+I want to cherish my relationships with my family & friends and center my attention on all the pretty little things God has bless me with. 
+I want to capture a greater understanding of how God see's His people and begin to renew my sight on how I see them, too. 

Oh, I also want to wear pink and eat chocolate. And lots of it. 

I might be coming across as sketchy, since the first part of my article %100-ly contradicts the second half, but I truly do want to celebrate Valentine's Day in a new, unique, different perspective. 

These will be the verses I'm going to do a little soul-soaking into within the next weeks:
13:1If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing.
"4 Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
Love never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10 but when the perfect comes, the partial will pass away. 11 When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I gave up childish ways. 12 For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known.
13 So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love."
                                                                                    ---1 Corinthians 13 1-13


I really do hope you all have a wonderful Valentine's Day! God bless you guys :) Have a great week!
