Valentine’s Day

Information on the origin of Valentine’s Day is quite sketchy and a bit contradictory.  It can be a giddy day for new and old sweethearts.  Or, it can be a day of obligatory gift giving serving mainly to spike the price of roses.  It can be painful, too, for people who don’t have sweethearts or have lost them.  Schoolchildren have even been known to use Valentine’s Day as a popularity contest – where the Charlie Browns among us were always left out.

Steve Marboli’s idea (see below) that embracing our humanity is one of the highest expressions of our spirituality suggests that Valentine’s Day might be a great day for random acts of spirituality.

So, why not spread the love?  Today, let a smile be your Valentine  – and give one to every single person you see.
