That First Day

Caught off guard by surprise,
A gentle stare blew shyness away,
Fragrance of kindness yield to the heart,
A lovely greeting so melancholy

Threw self love off the feet,
Spread of roses beaming its way,
Radiance of cool waters lies beneath,
A dream so childlike and pure

Reality speaks even harsher,
Swooning at the fingers of romance,
Thinking of what will be will be,
A thought to be held like kisses

Daydreams of air wishes of love,
Enchanted by the smile of innocence,
Creations of poise with imperfections,
A world with no worries within

Highest statures of cravings,
Passionate beauty of the dainty mind,
No one so fair and true to be found,
A stage where all wins an Oscar

Every day is an expression,
Set free from a dying gesture of love,
Where words and eyes collide,
A storming of heaven to set its spark

Patience shall win with glory,
Triumphant envies dancing in echoes,
The beginning of a celebration,
A reminder of that first day

Happy Valentine's Day

Many people around the world today are celebrating Valentine's Day but many of us are alone and single. Some of us are widowed; some of us are broken-hearted; some of us just got dumped or some of us are just secretly in love with our best friend who only think of us as friends.Whatever the reasons are, many of us are looking at Valentine's Day with a bitter and resentful heart.

However, Valentine's Day is not just about romance and passionate love between Romeo and Juliet. It is definitely about love. Look around you. How many of us are blessed with friends, siblings, parents that love us to the core? I know of friends who spent hours caring for another sick friend. I know of children giving up careers to tend to their sick parents. All these are love.

You might say that you are alone and have none of the above. You are probably homeless with no friends or family. Perhaps you are an orphan who are living on the streets. You must be contemplating Valentine with knives and swords piercing your heart because love never exists.

I am telling you that Love does exist and I want you to know that there is one person who loves you very much. He loves you so much that He laid down His life for you. This person is Jesus Christ. You probably know this already but I want to remind you that God loves you so much. He cares about every single details in your life that He knows the very numbers of hair on your head.

If you feel alone today and there is no living being around you to celebrate Valentine's Day with you, then come to Jesus. He is your greatest LOVER. He is passionately in love with you and He is waiting for you to yield to Him and embrace His Love.

Don't ever feel that you are alone because you are not. You might not see it but Jesus is with you all the time and He has His angels watch over you everywhere you go.

I may never have met you and probably never will but I love you because God loves you and you are precious to Him.

Happy Valentine's Day!

John 15:3 "Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends".
