What is it?

What is the real reason we celebrate today, Valentine's Day? Chocolate? Candy? Quaint little cards with pencils attached? Flowers from secret (or not-so-secret) admirers? Or is it...
Appreciating the ones we love. And thanking God for His love and His only Son so we might spend eternity with Him. Jesus didn't have to rise from the dead. He didn't have to die. He didn't have to influence so many people's lives by His works of love. He didn't have to be born of a virgin. He didn't have to live on this earth.
But, He did anyway. He did it because He loves us so much. He wants to spend eternity with each of us personally. He wants to have a relationship with you today.
For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting live. ~John 3:16
