Happy Valentine’s Day!
In one of my devotional books, I published a passage entitled “Love’s Secret Language”. It basically illustrates how many anticipate Valentine’s Day because they look forward to being showered with gifts by their significant others. But many are still disappointed and end up having a void that has not been filled with true love.
Many couples do not know their partner’s love language. This causes a lot of couples to experience a lack of fulfillment in their relationships.
Dr. Emerson Eggerichs describes it this way, “The love she most desires…the respect he desperately needs” (Love & Respect, 2004).
If you are ‘romanced’ with flowers, candy and food today, then great! Enjoy every bit of it. But remember that if you want an emotionally healthy relationship, it will take more than these tangible things. It will take experiencing, actively displaying genuine love.
Remember that: “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails” (1 Corinthian 13:4-8a).
