In as much as I don’t really agree that a day should be set aside to celebrate love, its also good to accept the fact that a day out of 365 days is set aside to celebrate love.
I believe couples should be the ones demonstrating their love more.
Couples should make the singles jealous.
They should express their pure undiluted love so much that singles will long for marriage.
But what do we see, most times the singles have taken over the demonstration of love and have perverted it.
Couples, let’s celebrate love not necessarily, Valentine.
We should celebrate love not only on Valentine’s day but always.
We should pick our own day to celebrate love.
Let’s celebrate the love we have towards each other.
Love is like roses.
But roses have thorns.
Don’t let us concentrate on the thorns in our marriage.
If we do, we won’t enjoy the fragrance of the rose.
Let watch out for the thorns but take our gaze and focus on the beauty of the rose.
Celebrate the roses, despite the thorns.
You cannot celebrate what you do not concentrate upon.
Lets celebrate love as couples.
There are some hindrances to celebrating love.
Don’t ignore your spouse. You notice anything, be the first to ask what’s wrong.
Don’t let any issue linger unto strife.
Be the first to express your love without feeling like ‘is it only you’
Do your best to always be there for yourselves.
Give, give and give.
Pray, pray and pray.
Discuss your issues amicably.
Enjoy your own life and I tell you that joy will flow to others.
Be a happy and pleasant person.
Have what Joyce Meyer calls a calm delight.
Smile always especially with your spouse.
Rejoice always because our joy matters to God and how we receive from him.
When we celebrate love we are actually celebrating ourselves.
Confession Of The Day
I celebrate my spouse.
Prayer For The Day
Lord, open my eyes of understanding to rejoicing always.
See every opportunity as one to rejoice
Thoughts of the day
Rejoice always and again I say to you rejoice (php 4:4)
