With Valentine’s Day fast approaching I’d like to send a shout out all the single ladies. I was single for a long time before I met Eric. I dated but I usually was no longer interested by the third or fourth date. I was super picky and I didn’t want to waste my time on anyone that I knew wouldn’t work out in the end (In fact, I broke up with my husband a couple months after we first started dating because I didn’t think he was going to make the cut. Thankfully he hung in there, wooed me back, and proved me wrong LOL). As much of a little man-hater as I was back in the day, I still remember being at work on many Valentine’s Days and wishing someone had sent me flowers. I know a lot of women can get a little down on Valentine’s Day because it makes them feel alone and lonely. Well, let me start by saying, you are fabulous! Don’t give a silly holiday that kind of power over you!
First off, don’t look for a man to complete you. A man is to compliment you; only God can complete you. If you think having a man will fix all of your problems you are setting yourself and your future beau up for failure before you ever even meet him. You need to find what your lacking from God. You need realize how He sees you and intends for you to be. If you don’t know how precious and valuable your are, how are you to know how you should really be treated. Ladies, Harvard doesn’t let just ANYBODY into their school. They know they are a highly desired school that adds tremendous value to anyone they allow to attend. They are very selective who they let in because they know their worth and value as a school. They have strict requirements and standards for those who wish to attend. You are a daughter of The King of Kings! Wait for your Prince and don’t waste your time on anyone else. Okay, I’ll get off my soap box now.
Next, you need to treat yo self! If you don’t have someone to spend Valentine’s Day with, don’t mope around… Have a date with yourself. I have a date with myself every time my husband goes out of town. I get a movie from Red box, I grab my favorite take out from Panera, I put my son to bed early and I paint my toes, eat my dinner and watch my movie. It is glorious! But girls this is Valentine’s Day so that simply won’t do! You need to buy yourself some beautiful flowers, get yourself a nice treat, run yourself a bubble bath, and pamper yourself like the jewel you are! Better yet, find another lady that is feeling down and have yourselves a nice lady date. Oooooh I love me a lady date!!! Get your girl and do something fun! Go to dinner and a movie, a painting class, reflexology massage, go shopping, or get your nails done together. Patricia and I went to one of those murder mystery dinners one night on a lady date it was so much fun. The show was a little lame but I had a blast with her. If you have kids and no sitter you can still have a lady date at your house. Some of my favorite days are with my girl Nicole at her house. I go over to her place and we let the kids play while we put on face masks, drink coffee, eat some food, and talk or watch a movie.
Just because you don’t have a Valentine doesn’t mean Valentine’s Day has to be loveless. Be Yours! Love who you are, on your path, in this moment. Your are a beautiful treasure, and the maker of the heavens feels you are worth dying for! Spend some time with Him this Valentine’s in his Word and you’ll get something much more meaningful than gifts and flowers out of it. Happy Valentine’s Day beauties!
Don’t Forget To Treat Yo Self!
Lots of Love,
