The title above sounds like a sports event score (maybe American Football). At least it does to me because my favorite soccer team in Brazil is named Corinthians.
But actually what was going through my mind was the meaning of each of those:
February 14th is Valentine’s Day, which is kind of cool, when children and adults express love and affection through many different ways. From cards covered with little hearts, to expensive engagement rings (did you know the average engagement ring costs over US$ 5,000.00?).
As I said before, I am kind of a romantic, so I enjoy the extra motivation to do something special. Today I started the day giving Liz a nice massage, now she is preparing a special breakfast, and later we will go to a restaurant for dinner.
I can’t fail to mention the cheese side of Valentine’s as well. A couple days ago I saw a guy dressed with a huge, golden, fluffy heart in front of a store at the airport in Charlotte, passing out candies.
Either way: Happy Valentine’s Day!
On the other side of our score board is the most famous passage in the Bible about love: I Corinthians 13.
Particularly verses 4 through 8 make you think about what it means to express real love (even if you have read it a hundred times, take another look at these words – very slowly):
” Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no records of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails.”
Isn’t that something? It is like a recipe for real love.
Happy Valentine’s Day.
