I love Valentine’s Day. I used to hate it. But now I love Valentine’s Day for a reason that you might not expect. I love the colors.
The red-pink-white combo is delicious to me. I want to eat it and decorate with it and wear it and make things with it.
And yes, I know how “girly” this post is, and how completely unnecessary it is for me to discuss Valentine’s Day colors, but look how pretty…
And no, I haven’t gone all hog wild and decorated my whole house in red, pink, and white hearts and flowers.
I’m too exhausted from the gratuitous Christmas decorating I do every year that takes me a week to put up, and 3 days to take down. By the time Valentine’s Day rolls around, I barely get a heart-shaped wreath on my front door.
I think that the colors of Valentine’s Day remind me of warmer, sunnier, more colorful days – and remind me of hope.
The hope we have in warmer, sunnier days coming in Spring and the hope of the Lord -who will show us again this Spring that He has overcome death – and brings an eternal love for all of us – when we celebrate Easter.
It’s a pretty good holiday when you think of it that way.
