Nobody Loves Me…

Nobody Loves Me… Please notice me!…

That’s the way a majority of the world feels today. Not everyone will be getting a bouquet of roses, a box of candy or even a valentine. The “Commercial Holidays” as my hubby puts it, makes many singles, widows, widowers, orphans, feel sad, so let’s notice them tomorrow!

There’s familiar (a neighbor, a clerk where you often shop or get service of some kind)

unfamiliar, (saw a fellow pushing a bicycle through the slush today),

 

A small gift card or a little gift useful to male or female can bring joy by lifting some hearts that they were noticed. If you have time, they may even want to chat with you.

 

Be prepared to answer why you are giving them a gift –

I am so cared for and want you to know God cares for you too

27 days to Spring – Sunshine is on the way!

A little gift from the one who created hearts

In memory or honor of a loved one (often share my Daddy’s love for people  or how Mom loved surprises and ice cream!)

 

 

How easy can it be with a day of hearts!

 

Grab some baggies

Insert some color (heart or flower cut outs or cardinal pictures – or a drawing your kids made)

Insert a little message – a verse, a proverb, a song, a random picture of a flower or something that evokes hope,

Insert a treat – something individually wrapped and decadent like a Ferrero Rocher Hazelnut Chocolate Candy, or something useful like hand lotion, a pair of dollar store mittens, or a small gift card to get a hamburger, sandwich or coffee, ice cream cone, some quarters for laundry/parking meters, rummage sales, etc..

 

How many smiles will you get tomorrow giving out your baggies that say You Are Noticed?

Phil. 2:1 If therefore there is any encouragement in Christ, if there is any consolation of love, if there is any fellowship of the Spirit, if any affection and compassion,

Phil. 2:2 make my joy complete by being of the same mind, maintaining the same love, united in spirit, intent on one purpose.

Phil. 2:3 Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind let each of you regard one another as more important than himself;

Phil. 2:4 do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others.

Phil. 2:5 Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus

 

Happy Valentine’s Day!

 

One Comment on “Nobody Loves Me…

  1. I love the idea. I was talking last week to a friend who was recently widowed friend. She mentioned how special her husband made Valentine’s Day (or I NEVER would have thought of it), so I sent a Valentine’s card, saying I know it would never make up for what her husband did, but it would tell her we loved her and were praying for her. I just hope I can remember to do something every Valentine’s for someone and not make it a one-off only because I heard her loneliness last week.

    Thanks.
