Valentine Central

Poor St. Valentine.  The dude was beheaded in 296 by the Roman emperor Claudius, and 200 years later Pope Gelasius declared him a saint.  Since then, Feb. 14th has had something vaguely to do with love.  Valentine was the patron saint of lovers, although he may be a wee bit chagrined at how the 21st century materializes his day.

Another famous dude, Paul, wrote a famous, timeless letter to the Corinthians, and a part of it is quoted all over the world.  1 Corinthians 13: Love Quotes shares the beautiful words from the letter, and gives a little more meaning to love on the 14th.

In the mean time if you aren't able to give your love a kiss and a hug or a hand written card, or bring her/him coffee or tea and a treat in bed, maybe you'd like to be material and purchase some love gift.  Nothing wrong with that.  Here are some ideas for her:
  1. Savon de Marseille with Crushed Local Flowers 300g-Lavender (French lavender soup)
  2. Valentine Raspberry Hearts Box - 25 pieces (Intentional chocolate)
  3. Sterling Silver Pendant Cubic Zirconia CZ Heart Journey Pendant Necklace - For Valentines Day Gift 
and here are some gift ideas for him:
An added note about love, loving oneself is not selfish.  To believe that you are a part of something bigger, and that you are so much greater than what happens to you, that is a great maturity beyond material loving.
So, love yourself this Valentine's Day.
