My dear friend Camille gave me a great idea for a Valentine’s post; actually she said, “Write this story in your blog.”
Because I love her and because it’s Valentine’s Day, I took her advice. She was visiting her sister in the hospital yesterday. While in the elevator a man looked at her a bit embarrassed because he was holding a cheap brand of chocolates in his hands.
“You want one?” the man said, jokingly.
“No thanks!” she replied, laughing.
“I know it’s kinda cheap,” he said in a downtrodden tone.
As they both headed out of the elevator, Camille’s wisdom shined. “You know, the best thing is not the cost of the candy, it’s being there.”
For Valentine’s Day or any other day, the gift IS in the giver. In the unconditional sense, it is the purest, most priceless, precious gift beyond compare, a kiss of faith that imprints us with a promise of tomorrow.
Stay tuned!…until next time…walk by faith not by sight!
