Valentines Day - Our Lover's Day

Hey Covenant Groupies,

Last night is a total blur to me ya'll. During the middle of the day, I came down with a bad headache. That's not the norm for me so, I just shut everything down and relaxed. Kevin came in early and ordered some amazing Japanese food. We ate and enjoyed each other's company

Today was another relaxing day for us. It's been a while since we've just had one of these. We spent the day talking about what we'd like to do this summer and how exactly we wanted to prepare now; getting back into the gym, traveling, work related items etc. It's been a truly fulfilling day. It's great to have something to look forward to and work towards.

As far as tomorrow goes, we don't celebrate Valentines Day. Several years ago, we, check this out, took it upon ourselves to change February 14th to "Lover's Day." The nerve of us right? This day, for us, is about not only our love for God and one another, but other's as well.

Collectively, it was difficult for us to take this one day and try to compete with millions of other people and display secular love to one another; a love that was arranged by cupid. Nahhhhh. Can't do that. More importantly, we wanted to really display God's love prominently on this day. Don't get me wrong, we're not saying that other's don't, but we wanted to truly make a day that just expanded on what we feel daily without making it about flowers, candy, teddy bears and all of that "stuff."

So, since I don't blog on Sunday's, I'll tell you that tomorrow is going to be a truly fun day.

Stayed tuned!!!!!
