Today, card-makers and other commercial industries – bless them – have broadened the holiday even further to make it about love of all kinds, not just romantic. There are red Valentine toys for kids and cards addressed to sons, daughters, friends and neighbors.
The holiday also seems to be marked by sweet things to eat. Maybe you got a box of chocolates today. If you did, enjoy! If not, the recipe below is a great way to celebrate the day. I hope you enjoy it.
As we celebrate this day, may we remember the greatest – in fact the only – source of love we have. God our creator, revealed in Jesus Christ, offering us the blessing of indescribable love on this and every day.
