Yes, it's Valentine's Day.  
I can remember many Valentine's Day's that I just hoped someone, ANYONE, would acknowledge me. I rarely had a boyfriend on Valentine's Day.  There were times I was tempted to go down the card aisle with a blow torch in hand, but I figured jail time probably wasn't wise for a church gal. 
Yes, it's Valentine's Day.
The very words bring both fluttering stomachs and eye rolling depending on who you ask.

 Some believe that Valentine's Day is merely a marketing conspiracy to profit off this crazy little thing we call love. 
No matter what side of the fence you find yourself on...I just have 1 thing to say okay maybe more than 1 thing.
Please, pretty please...
...share a good laugh with someone you love on Valentine's Day.

 Tell your kids you love them.
Don't take the day so seriously.  It's just 1 day...there's 364 more each year. 

 Think about what you do have in life, not what you don't.  
Don't get crazy over the fact that Wal-Mart is covered from head to toe in red and pink. 

And most importantly don't forget that God loves you even when you feel alone, even if you are alone. God's love never changes.

Romans 8:38-39 NIV

38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
