Will you be my Sweet Valentine?

Article by Adrienna Turner

Since I was a child, we would say to our classmates jokingly, “Will you be my Valentines?” We would bring sweets to eat to share with our entire class, and even give small kid-size cards. How fun it was to get all the candy you can eat and cards from your best friends was a treat!

Once I got in high school, it wasn’t any treats unless you stopped at the candy store on the way to school, and boyfriends that I dated didn’t take the holiday seriously at all. In college, wasn’t any different, still no date worth talking about and no treats unless I bought them. But I still didn’t give up on romance, a chance on love, and being my mate’s treat. I even heard once on the bus ride to school that Valentines were for the ladies and Sweetest Day was for the men; however, it was always the woman waiting for their treats and gifts on both holidays.

Now as a grown woman, for the past few years, I keep wondering if I will meet my sweet Valentine. Every year, was the same thing, where me, my sister, and mom would hope to meet our mate and have a fantasized date. Another special holiday alone, no one to call my own, and this may be you too…believing and seeking for that special loved one. However, in 2014, this year there’s a different twist for me. I am seeking after Christ, and learning more about His love…how much He truly loves me.

Psalm 52:8  says, “But I am like an olive tree flourishing in the house of God; I trust in God’s unfailing love forever and ever.”


Romans 5:5 tells us, “And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.”


2 Thessalonians 3:5  reads, “May the Lord direct your hearts into God’s love and Christ’s perseverance.”


1 John 4:7 [God’s Love and Ours] Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God.


Therefore, His love is forever, eternal, and everlasting. He gave His greatest gift to demonstrate His love for us, His creation–that is Jesus the Christ. Jesus then tells us that His two greatest commandments are to love our God and to love others. This love comes from God, and all of us who know God, will return love to others. I know someday I will have my Valentine to love and cherish and to hold, but until then, I will continually love on the Lord.
