Belated Valentine Day


Apricot Rose is an Original Painting on Canvas.

It is nice to have a rose for Valentine’s Day, however we are a bit late for that but never the less we can celebrate with our love one’s each and every day of the year, not just once a year.

How lovely it used to be when we were teenagers (years ago for me I know) but each Valentine’s Day we would wonder who would want us to be their Valentine.  We would wait for a card to arrive by mail or from a friend who would hand it to us if our so called Valentine was too shy to give it to us.

Yes we did get disappointed when it did not come from the one we had hoped for and would look around to see who they had favored instead of ourselves.

Then of course there we those who sent them as a joke (that would be very upsetting) but to receive one anyway was something special all those years ago.   No one put their name on the card – so it was nearly always a guessing game.

I hope you have a lovely caring Valentine to call your own,

if so show them that you love them too.


Here is a recipe you may like to cook for them:

A Bible Verse that asks us to walk in love:

2 John: Chapter 1 verse 6.  And this is love;

that we walk in obedience to His commands.

As you have heard from the beginning,

His command is that you walk in love.


I hope you have a lovely day with your beloved Valentine or with your friends and family.
