Happy Valentines day
I came across this blog and instead of writing the whole story in my words I copied it as it really made me feel that there is more to Valentines then me getting my darling husband to treat me.
So here goes:
It is Valentine's Day. Ok, I will own it.
I almost forgot, except that the kind couple that I live with gave me a card and a heart mug and tea. To me tea = love. I felt loved.
I came to work thinking about the Peanuts Valentine's Day show with Charlie Brown and homemade valentines. I shared my ginger lemon Valentine's tea with the fellow sicklings at work. That shared the love, but I thought I needed to do more.
Then I talked to this guy who has to be the most discouraged person I know. I work with a lot of discouraged people because it is temporary work and people are looking for jobs. I wondered if he had ever gotten a valentine's card. Then God gave me the idea to write him one myself. I tore off a piece of notepad paper. I drew a big heart. I said:
God wants you to know that He loves you and has a plan for your life. Don't give up! You are a kind and thoughtful person. You are wonderful and valuable!
One the front I wrote: "Happy Valentine's Day :)" and I left it on his desk when he went to the bathroom.
I knew this was the right thing, but then fear set in. 'What if he gets mad? What if I should not have written God? What if I get accused of trying to convert people at work?' Then he came back from the bathroom. He read my note. I did not sign it, but he knew it was from me. He approached my desk. He said, "I'm assuming this was from you." I nodded. Then he said with a smile and enthusiasm, "Thanks a lot!"
Hooray! Mission encouragement accomplished!
What a wonderful thing to do when others need encouragement more then you might. Today lets spread the love.
Be happy and be blessed
