All of the sound bites for Valentine’s Day talk about “Love,” sharing love through candy, cards, jewelry and so on. Since when are chocolate diamonds more expensive that clear ones? My how times have changed since I bought my wife her diamond almost 17 years ago. Anyway in the very marketplace where those sound bite originate, there is no concept of what love really is. God is the author of love. His love for us is unconditional and it covers any circumstances in life that we may face. The late Whitney Houston asked: “How will I know.” Once you know and experienced the love of God, no other love will do!
