"Love is the difficult realization that something other than oneself is real." -Iris Murdoch
There remain only a few short weeks before that mid-winter celebration called Saint Valentine's Day. A day, February 14, celebrating love and affection. People express their love for each other by presenting flowers, offering sweets or candies, and sending greeting cards.
Valentine's Day is a day dedicated to love and all that love is. No surprise to my regular readers, I have a book out called Love Is, which explores the greatest love story ever told. But do you know how we came to celebrate love on this day?
Watch the video below from "The History Channel" to find out some of the mystery behind that question. This short video gives you the background into the day known as Saint Valentine's Day. After you learn about the celebration of love, why not order my book Love Is and find out what "love is".
This important holiday is coming quickly. Plan now to make it a special time to show your love. It doesn't have to be a grand gesture. Many times the simple things are the grandest of all. And while Valentine's Day may have a varied history, the story of what Love Is will go on forever. Love will remain a powerful force in your life.
Stay inspired my friends.
