A Religious Legend

From Wikipedia:

"Saint Valentine or Saint Valentinus refers to one of at least three martyred saints of ancient Rome. The feast of Saint Valentine was formerly celebrated on February 14 by the Roman Catholic Church until the revised calendar 1969.
The feast of St. Valentine was first decreed in 496 by Pope Gelasius I, who included Valentine— and Saint George— among those "...whose names are justly reverenced among men, but whose acts are known only to God."
The creation of the feast for such dimly conceived figures may have been an attempt to supersede the pagan holiday of Lupercalia that was still being celebrated in 5th century Rome, on February 15.
According to the Catholic Encyclopedia, the saint whose feast was celebrated on the day now known as St. Valentine's Day was possibly one of the three martyred men who lived in the late 3rd century during the reign of Emperor Claudius II (died 270):"
My wish for you, beloved, on this and every day is that His love will burn in your heart and fill you with the comfort and joy that only He can give.

I like those thoughts for Valentine's Day. Without the Father's love for us, we have nothing else. That is where true love begins. Agape love.

All love grows from God's love for us and it is only in Him we understand what love is. In His love for us in sending His Son to live among us and to die for us solely out of love.

And it will be with Him, again, we will be raised up to live and love forever more.

There's nothing like the love of God is there? May it be especially good for you today.
