When I was growing up, Valentines Day was celebrated like a regular holiday…not just an occasion. We would wake up to the smell of my mama’s cinnamon heart biscuits wafting through the air. It didn’t matter what day of the week it fell on, school or weekend, she would make her famous biscuits. As children we called them “love” biscuits because she did. Valentines was a big deal in our house. Our plates had our little valentines with a gift. It was wonderful. We would sit and giggle at what our conversation heart candy and laugh over how the little red hearts melted on the biscuits into funny faces.
My mother carried that tradition on through the years to her grand-children’s children. My mother would say, “the love of the Lord is sometimes like a hot buttered biscuit…it warms you from the inside out.” She was something else!
Today, I pray that the Love of our Lord has warmed you from the inside out! Let it light the fire that might have grown dim, rekindling the outpouring of the Holy Spirit in your life. Open your heart to receive His valentine to you…Jesus. The greatest Love the world will ever know!
We can love because He first loved. I John 4:19
