SO IN LOVE WITH MY VALENTINE By Tammy Glover

“Love is patient. Love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices in the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.” 1 Corinthians 13: 4-8 NIV

Forget about flowers this Valentine’s Day. My Valentine grows fields of flowers just for me. Forget about jewelry. My Valentine lives in a kingdom where the streets are made of gold and the gates are encrusted with pearls and precious gems. Forget about a fancy dinner. My Valentine makes food rain down from heaven.

Hands down, I have the best Valentine in the world. He’s not just wonderful on February 14th; he’s like this all year round. He provides for my every need. Anything I ask of him, he gives it freely. He’s always there when I need him. I never have to worry or fear when I step out the door because he has employed an entourage of angels to protect me.

Chivalry is not dead with him, it’s an art form. Instead of placing his jacket on top of a puddle for me to walk across, he parts seas. He opens and closes doors for me as needed. My honor is always safe with him. There isn’t a battle that he won’t fight on my behalf. If there is something in my way, all I need to say is, “move, “in his name and it will move, even mountains.

I trust him completely. He never lies and he keeps all his promises. I am deeply in love with him and he is deeply in love with me. There is no place that I can go that he does not take pleasure in going with me. He never forgets a birthday or an anniversary. He even knows the number of hairs on my head. He knows my every thought and he knows my heart. If this was an ordinary man, this would creep me out and I would feel suffocated. Thankfully, he’s no ordinary man. Even though he is mighty, his intentions are always pure and good.

I am beautiful and wonderful in his sight even without make-up or my hair done. He is kind and patient. He loves me unconditionally. When I make mistakes, he doesn’t laugh or mock me. He builds me up and cleans up my messes. He easily forgives me when I’m wrong.

The best thing of all, he laid down his life for me. That’s right; he died and rose from the dead just so that my soul would be saved. If you still don’t know who I’m talking about, his name is Jesus. There’s no need to be jealous ladies, because he can be your Valentine too. He has more than enough love to share with the whole world.

“For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his love for those who fear him.” Psalm 103:11 NIV
