February = Love

It is February!  The second month of the calendar year.  It is the shortest month and the only month to have a length of less than 30 days.  This year is a common year with 28 days.  Leap year is every four years to help synchronize the calendar year with the solar year, or the length of time it takes the earth to complete its orbit about the sun.

February is normally overcast, chilly, dark and cold.  It is one of the best months to snow ski because the mountains are packed with snow.

It is also a month, which is all about hearts, flowers, candy and romance.  It is a time when people express the words, "I Love You".

1 Corinthians 13:4-7 says "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 with the truth.  It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres."

These verses remind me that God's love is directed toward others and not toward ourselves.  To give love and not to expect anything in return.  As we celebrate Valentine's Day, let's remember these verses and that we need to think about them not every once in a while, but everyday.

Love is available to everyone.  Take the time to let your family and friends know that you love them. Life is short and we don't have the the guarantee that we will have each other for ever.

"I Love You!"
