Tomorrow is Valentine's Day. For some this may be the first time you have thought about it. Others, you’ve been planning something special for weeks. Either way it is an opportunity to celebrate love however it shows up in your life. The Salt Project’s post today is titled “A Brief Theology of Valentine’s Day”. I found the end to be particularly moving:

This Valentine’s Day, think of all the love in your life - the love you feel and the love you witness; even the love among the birds of the air! - as a glimpse of God’s care for all creation.  And if you’re especially perceptive (or especially mischievous), you can glimpse divine love in places likely and unlikely, common and uncommon. Even in a sweet little greeting card, an arrangement of flowers, or a “flavor map” embossed on a heart-shaped lid.

For if we have eyes to see and ears to hear, the truth about God’s love is that it’s all around    us, the Song of all songs, the Symphony of all symphonies, echoing everywhere.
