I thought the world was celebrating my marriage when I walked into the grocery store today. There were red heart balloons floating around, fresh beautiful flowers and love in the air! Then I remembered it's Valentines Day. After spending way too much money on a wedding, J and I are going to keep Valentines Day quiet this year and keep the honeymoon vibe alive.
I did run across these CUTE printables yesterday. If you haven't thought of anything for Valentines Day try some of the below items!
St. Valentines Day for kids
I had to throw in a little Catholic activity for kids! A Valentines Day countdown chain. Or if you are blessed with many children, make this for Valentines day and have each kid tear off and read a bible verse.
'The Icing on your Catholic cake'
Visit my 'Be My Valentine' pinterest board for some other ideas.
Ya know, I thought I missed the valentines cards and candies from school days, however my office has been handing out roses and candy all morning!
But let us all remember what this day is really about....
As Pope St. Gregory the Great said:
The proof of love is in the works.
Where love exists, it works great things.
But when it ceases to act, it ceases to exist.
Do you love as much every day as you do on St. Valentines Day? Do you love your neighbor as yourself today or is it just about your family and friends today? Remember, GOD is love.
