Valentine's Day is just around the corner. If you have someone special to love--and be loved by--count your blessings. Be thankful. Treat him or her special every day, not just on the Love Holiday.
If you're on the other end of the love spectrum--getting over a breakup, then here's some hope.
Last week I was interviewed on the radio about my breakup book, "When Love Ends and the Ice Cream Carton Is Empty" (Moody Publishing) on WBCL - Fort Wayne, Ind. Our host talke with me and guest David Hawkins, a Christian author and counselor about how to deal with the myriad emtions of getting dumped--and how to move forward.
Need hope? Here's a link to the interview. Click on it, scroll down and click LISTEN NOW. Or, share the link with a friend in need.
Take a listen. Find hope. And know that on Valentine's Day and every day you are loved. God not only loves you, he likes you. He provides, protects and (I love this one) he accepts us. Unconditionally. Just the way we are.
Now that's a love that will certainly last a lifetime--and beyond.
