Love Encourages

It’s valentine’s day as I am writing this. Some call it the day of love. Others call it the day for single’s awareness.

It’s like anything else in life. Either you enjoy it or not. I heard on the radio the other morning the hosts were talking about valentines day. They were wondering what were some of the stories people had about valentine’s day. The good and the bad.

One of my social media friends ask the same question to talk about valentine’s day on her radio show.

It’s like asking what are our favorite moments in life or what were our worst moments in life that we remember. Some moments in life cherish and there are some moments in life we try desperately to forget.

Someone posted an obituary that a daughter had submitted to the local newspaper about her father. To say it bruising would be an understatement. I think the funeral home removed it rom their website. As you know, what is posted on the internet quickly spreads around the world in a matter of minutes if not seconds.

We all have those memories. Whether it’s good or bad.

The important thing to take from the bad moments in life is to find something positive in the lesson that can passed on. The lesson that the daughter wrote about her father was that she wished her life growing up would have been much better than it was. The truth; however, was that she didn’t have any good moments that she could positivity share about her childhood or her friends about her father.

That’s the sad part about life. We don’t have the choice on who our parents are or who our children. We can only hope that they instill values that teaches us to value each second of the day to make a positive difference in the lives of the people around us that we’ve loved and taught love through hope and grace.

Life isn’t easy. However, remember your circumstances do not define your future. It’s never to late unless you’re no longer breathing to change your direction.

So, go encourage someone today, tomorrow, and the day after tomorrow. Hope and love does exists through Christ who showed how far he was willing to go to show his love for you and me.
