God Bless ME

Well, we made it through Valentine’s Day.  The flowers have probably begun dropping their leaves and may have been tossed, and the candy boxes are empty.

Valentine’s Day is a wonderful and heart-opening day for those of us in a relationship.  But what if you are not?  What if you are carrying some old hurt about a relationship that didn’t work out as you expected?

This “holiday” is often focused on someone else, but are we willing and able to be our own Valentine?

Last Sunday, I spoke about Jack and Cornelia Addington’s book, How To Love and Be Loved:  Drawing the Larger Circle.  The circle includes the people we love and nurture in our hearts.  Do we leave ourselves out of the circle, because of regret, shame or a belief in limitation?  Click on the link to listen to my talk.
