Happy Valentine's Day

Or is it?

Four years ago on this day, I was very single.  I was still living at my parents' house, and was not particularily excited about the holiday.  However, one of my (girl) friends had given me a nice mug and some hot chocolate mix the day before, so I decided make a warm cup of coco that morning.  To my surprise, I found an open letter on the kitchen table.  It was not addressed to anyone in particular. 

Later, I inquired who put the letter on the table.  Although my mom was familiar with the note, she did not remember leaving it out.  To this day, I am not sure why the letter was sitting there on Valentine's Day Morning, but I am glad it was!  I thought I would post the text on my blog tonight, in hopes that it will encourage you as it encouraged me.

Everyone longs to give themselves completely to someone, to have a deep soul relationship with another, to be loved thoroughly and exclusively. 

But God says, “No, not until you are satisfied, fulfilled, and content with living, loved by Me alone, with giving yourself wholly and completely to Me, with having an intensely personal and unique relationship with Me alone.
When you discover that only in Me is your satisfaction to be found you will be capable of the perfect human relationship that I have planned for you.
You will never be united to another until you are united with me exclusive of anyone or anything else, exclusive of any other desires or longings.
I want you to stop planning, stop wishing, and allow Me to give you the most thrilling plan existing…one you cannot even imagine.
I want you to have the best!  Please allow me to bring it to you.
You just keep watching Me, expecting the greatest things.  Keep experiencing the satisfaction knowing that I AM.  Keep listening to the things I tell you.
Just wait, that’s all.
Don’t be anxious.  Don’t worry.  Don’t look around at the things you think you want.  Just keep looking off and away, up to Me, or you’ll miss what I have to show you.
And then, when you are ready, I’ll surprise you with a love far more wonderful than you would ever dream.
You see I am working even at this moment to have both of you ready at the same time.  Until you are both satisfied exclusively with Me you won’t be able to experience the love that exemplifies your relationship with Me, and this is perfect love.
Dear one, I want you to have this most wonderful love.  I want you to see in the flesh a picture of your relationship with Me, and to enjoy materially and concretely the everlasting union of beauty, perfection and love that I offer you with Myself.
Know that I love you completely, for I AM GOD.
Believe and be satisfied.”
