Legend has it that– “on the evening before Valentine was to be executed, he would have written the first ‘valentine’ card himself, addressed to the daughter of his jailer Asterius, who was no longer blind, signing as ‘Your Valentine.’ The expression ‘From your Valentine’ was later adopted by modern Valentine letters. And in order “to remind these men of their vows and God’s love, Saint Valentine is said to have cut hearts from parchment”, giving them to these soldiers and persecuted Christians.”– (wiki)
Everyday can be valentine’s day. You don’t have to wait all year round for that one day to “fill your paper with the breathings of your heart.”
In fact, you should have your #assumptionjournals brevi manu just in case you get a glimpse of that 5-second spark or experience a minute long tingle up your spine, which would inspire you to paint the colors of the rainbow and scribble while you nibble on those yummy Madeline’s.
Romance can be more than a relationship between two individuals. Often times we’ve heard of America’s love affair with baseball. Romance could probably refer to one person’s relationship with the whole world. It embodies our ability to experience God’s grace and live all our days in constant love and gratitude.
