Would you be my valentine?  Have you ever wondered how this holiday came to be?  Yes,  there’s a religious meaning to Valentines Day. 

According to Wikipedia.com Saint Valentine’s history is quite interesting https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valentine%27s_Day.

Saint Valentine of Rome which indicated he was imprisoned for performing weddings for soldiers who were forbidden to marry and for ministering to Christians, who were persecuted under the Roman Empire.[3] According to legend, during his imprisonment, Saint Valentine healed the daughter of his jailer, Asterius,[4] and before his execution, he wrote her a letter signed “Your Valentine” as a farewell.[5]

In trouble with the authorities for spreading love to the world.  How injust, how unfair was that?  With all the moaning I read about and see in the news about ( me, myself and I ),  it’s a relief to read about an actual person who was making a change in the world.

From my point of view it’s wrong to imprisoned someone for spreading love to others.

When you’re grabbing those flowers, cards, taking her (or his) hands into yours; remember one man made it possible for you to continue to spread the message of love and hope.  Jesus Christ is the ultimate sign of unconditional love.    To be nailed to a cross, left to die when  he could have stopped the torture by calling down all the angels from heaven proving to non believers that he was in fact the Messiah would have been the easiest thing to do.   Yet Jesus choose to endure the pain and suffering so we (mortal men) could obtain forgiveness from the Heavenly Father and show unconditional love to others.
