Happy Valentine’s Day!! It feels like New Years was just yesterday but here we are, celebrating yet another holiday! We all know Valentine’s Day is generally about showing your affection towards another person. Great! Nothing wrong with that! But, sometimes (not only on Valentine’s Day) we forget to show compassion and love toward ourselves! V-Day isn’t just for couples or little kids with tiny paper cards; to me, it’s a reminder that life is full of love, kindness, and a lot of yummy chocolates.
As I spend quite a bit of time studying the Bible, highlighting and noting my favorite verses, and really try to connect with scripture, I run into some of my favorite verses that fill me to the brim with empowerment! Women of the Bible were amazing! They were strong, courageous, God-fearing, and smart beyond their years. It is a total misconception that women in the Bible were slaves to men; c’mon now, God made us all for different purposes, but incredibly equal and deserving of love all the same.
