Sometimes it seems as if we’re constantly fighting the clock. From work to volunteering to making sure our kids get to practice on time, life is busier than ever, and many of us find ourselves scrambling from one thing to the next. That’s just the world we live in.
But that’s why I love Valentine’s Day. Despite the chaos of our daily lives, this is one day dedicated to pausing and expressing love and appreciation to the important people in our lives.
For many men, women, and children around the world, one of those important people is YOU! So, today on Valentine’s Day, a few of them want to take a moment to say thank you.
Thank you for the tremendous amount of love and generosity you have shown to people in need. It’s not a stretch to say that you have helped save the lives of men, women, and children and spread the love of Jesus worldwide!
Because of you, children around the globe have received an education. Young women have escaped sexual abuse and found hope for a better future. Persecuted Christians have received God’s Word for the first time. Churches have been planted in some of the world’s most remote communities. And families affected by natural disasters have received emergency supplies that have literally helped keep them alive.
That’s something to be proud of! I hope you truly see the incredible impact you’re making.
Thank you for seeing a need and for being part of the solution.
Refugees … starving children … hurricane victims … girls trapped in bondage … Christians suffering for their faith.
Through your commitment, these people now have the physical help and the spiritual resources they need. You reached down, offered a helping hand, and demonstrated Christ’s love to people around the globe.
Although today is the official day that we celebrate love, you have shown love to the least of these all year-round. So, one more time, I’d like to echo the voices you heard in the video and offer you a great big THANK YOU.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
