Overcoming the Fear of Flying

Raoul’s 2 Cents

Valentine’s Day

Did you wake up with the permeating smell of roses in the air? Do you see people adorned with red and accents of red? Do you see sweethearts holding hands, kissing and hugging and whispering sweet nothings? Then it must be Valentine’s Day. If you’re a guy, did you prepare a present for Juliet? And if you’re a gal, are you expecting to be swept off your feet by your charming Romeo? Oh, the pressures for us guys and the lofty expectations for you gals.

I started to write a song for my wife and hoped to surprise her today but with the onslaught of activities with a new client, I ran out of time. It’s not a good way for me to start this special day. For this TGIF edition, I wish I could write something beautiful and profound about Valentines Day but my mind’s wasted from today’s activities so the only thing I can think of sharing with you is the apostle Paul’s letter to the people in Corinth. He explained the true meaning of the word “love.” He said:

“Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends.” — 1 Corinthians 13: 4-8

I hope my wife likes my simple gift of roses. It’s all this very tired Romeo can give her this morning. I hope I can still sweep her off her feet by tonight. As for you, I hope someone will touch your heart in a profound way this Valentine’s day.

(BTW, if you have Netflix and want to watch a tearjerk romantic movie, watch “Love, Rosie.” Warning: It’s not for kids.)

TGIF people!
