I never promised you a rose garden. but a bed of rose petals would be nice.
I am working myself up to be ready for Valentines day. For me it is not so much that I need to get flowers or a box of chocolates for my wife. It is a remembrance of the past that comes to my heart. Two years apart, both my father and mother died on Valentines day. So as the red day approaches, I am trying this year to look forward to it as a day to give love rather than to pine over my past.
Live in the here and now, unwrap it, savor it. That’s why it’s called the “present”. en theos ††† jim
