"mom, what is valentine's day all about anyway?"
i don't know, i answer my daughter honestly. and we shrug in unison because maybe we really do know that this holiday isn't about anything, really.
later that night, i repeat the conversation to my forever valentine and we wonder aloud what valentine's day is all about.
"i know!" says our confident 5-year-old. my husband and i exchange a look. we know this is going to be interesting. we're all ears.
"valentimes day is about love. and God."
i beam. my husband smiles, and corrects him, "valen-tine's day isn't really about God."
"yes. it. is." persistent little guy.
"valentimes day is about love, and God is love."

We know how much God loves us, and we have put our trust in his love.
God is love, and all who live in love live in God, and God lives in them.
