I am a very lucky man, I now have spent 10 years with my beautiful wife and i am not affected by the hole commercial side of Valentin day.
First of all what is Valentine day & why do we celebrate this day ? let look at the story :
The Story of St. Valentine:The Roman Emperor Claudius II was fightingmany wars. He wanted astrong army, but many men did not wantto be soldiers. Claudius thoughtthe men wanted to stay home to bewith their wives and children insteadof leaving to fight wars.Claudius thought of an awful solutionto his problem. He decided to cancelall marriages! No one in all of Rome could get married. Claudius thoughtthat if the men couldn’t get married, the men would ignore the womenand want to be soldiers.Valentine, who was a priest, believedthat people needed to get married.He thought that if they were not married, they would be tempted to sin byliving together without being married.So he secretly and illegally marriedcouples anyway! He performed the weddings in secret places, so theRoman soldiers would not find out.But they did find out. Valentine was arrested and brought before theEmperor. The Emperor thought Valentine was a well spoken and wiseyoung man, and encouraged him to stop being a Christian and become aloyal Roman. Valentine would not denyhis beliefs, and he refused. He wassent to prison until he could be executed. While he was in prison, he sentout letters to his friends and asked to be prayed for by writingRememberyour Valentine.Valentine was killed on the 14th or the24th of February in the year 269 or270. We celebrate Valentine’s Day on February 14thin honor of St.Valentine.
So should we celebrate Valentine days or morn it? Morn the lost of a man who devoted his life to love and should we not dedicate every other day to his life by loving our significant other on a daily base…
Stop using today as a redemption day for fixing your relationship by buying expensive material thing or go on a vacation or what ever and use today to care for each other like you would every other day of the years.
Today a man died for love, so we could give love not buy love
I AM LOVE
