Uplifting thoughts fill our hearts
Looking toward St. Valentine's Day
Hoping, praying we feel a part
Of all the love that holiday.
This special day year to year
Is shown by giving candy sweet
Fragrant flowers, verses light
Giving, receiving both a treat.
But underneath these touching gifts
May opportunity be found
To share with others deep felt thoughts
That bind us all the world around.
Peace for all, harmony, love
Underlie St. Valentine's Day
This deeper message, a fervent wish
To carry forward in every way.
Giving love makes every heart
Feel special more than on this day
It makes love last the whole year long
Makes every day St. Valentine's Day!
Once again we have the opportunity to share with one another our dearest thoughts of love and care in a way so sweet. I think the message of St. Valentine's Day serves us well when carried past the day into the whole of the year, the great circle of life.
To begin your St. Valentine's meditation sit in a quiet place. If you have a meditation altar, in honor of the day, place some blooming flowers on it and whatever objects you find uplifting; perhaps little angels or cupids with their bow and arrows to dart a lucky recipient with enduring love.
Use your meditation time to reflect on the prayer above and how you can show love and care in your life, today and everyday. It is this effort one to one that must spread till the goal of peace and harmony on earth prevail. Let's make that our Valentine's Day wish.
