We say we do…
...but who are we kidding?
We do it anyway though. Even though we think it is a money-making racket, and we don’t like being told what to do. Why?
Because Valentine’s day isn’t important to us… but the cause it celebrates is. The person we choose to spend it with, is.
A lot like choosing to celebrate Christmas or Easter, even though the world makes it about presents and sweets. Because the reason behind it is still important to us. And just because we celebrate Jesus every day, doesn’t mean we can’t make an extra effort to remind ourselves what He did for us on those special days.
So I hope you are celebrating V-Day today, even if only a little bit.
Because sometimes we need to celebrate what is important to us, regardless of who’s idea it is.
P.S. Dori and I are doing well, and will be spending our first Valentine’s Day together tonight. Otherwise this post might have been 129.7% more cynical than it was.
