Spread the love

“May the sun bring you new energy by day… excerpt from an Apache Blessing
“May the moon softly restore you by night…
“May the rain wash away your worries…
“May the breeze blow new strength into your being…
“May you walk gently through the world and…
“May your heart know its beauty all the days of your life…”

Love is an every day affair. It takes love to keep our universe thriving; love gets us out of bed, keeps our hearts ticking, heals our tears, hurts and wounds, connects us to others on a deeper level, and when events in the world makes us feel vulnerable, we turn to the love of our family and trusted friends; our loved ones. Love is an every day affair. On this Valentine’s Day, I wish you all the good and loving experiences you desire. I send you love, hope, faith, abundance, divine grace, and decadent chocolates. I invite you to share a song; any of the all time greatest love songs. Why only on Valentine’s Day? The last time I checked, Cupid was out and about sending arrows of love to all that crossed his path… May we all be touched by the arrow of unconditional love. Happy Valentine’s Day!✿♡✿Happy Valentine’s Day!✿♡✿

A Valentine’s Day Prayer via Jeremiah ~ 31:3
I have loved you with an everlasting love,
with unfailing love I have drawn you to myself
May the unfailing love of God encompass you
and may this Valentine’s Day be filled with love,
understanding and contentment as you journey
through life with those you hold dear!
Happy Valentine’s Day!

Whenever we think of Valentine’s Day, the thought of loved ones, chocolates, flowers and kisses dance around our heads and we are filled with memories of magical or miserable moments. Valentine’s Day can also be a trigger for memories of unrequited love, shattered dreams and long gone lovers… Do you remember your first Valentine? Your memorable Valentine? Your saddest one? A Valentine’s from 10 years ago? They all count for something and add to our cache of life stories that we carry with us; sometimes as scars, other times as sacred events. This thing called love can be exhilarating and enervating, it can heat us up and leave us cold… We take the experiences, bundle them up, tie them with a glorious bow, and offer them to the Gods; asking for a compassionate lover, a lasting companion, gratitude for loved ones, grace for future loves, and above all, blessings for Divine Love. Happy Valentine’s Day!✿♡✿Happy Valentine’s Day!✿♡✿ More below. 😉

Whitney Houston – Greatest Love Of All

“Here is the deepest secret nobody knows. by E. E. Cummings
Here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
And the sky of the sky of a tree called life;
Which grows higher than soul can hope or mind can hide.
And this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart.
I carry your heart.
I carry it in my heart.”

Today, when you open your cards, smell your roses, and eat your Valentine’s Day chocolates, send a heartfelt wish of love to those who won’t be able to celebrate in the same way. Carry a goodwill thought in your heart and trust that your kindness will reverberate and come back to you enriched and fired in the kiln of unconditional, far reaching love… ✿♡✿Happy Valentine’s Day!✿♡✿

Positive Motivation Tip: Like sparkling stars in the sky, send love kisses out into the universe trusting that all will be touched and emboldened by them.

    What a wonderful post. One of my fave quotes on love is “Love isn’t a state of perfect caring. It is an active noun like struggle. To love someone is to strive to accept that person exactly the way he or she is, right here and now.” Fred Rogers.
