WHAT’S MORE IMPORTANT: VALENTINE’S DAY OR BLACK HISTORY MONTH?

IMG_1873-001

OK SO I’M TOTALLY CONFUSED. SO THE MEDIA HAS DEFINITELY BEEN UP-SELLING VALENTINE’S DAY AND ALL ITS GLORY. I RARELY HEAR ANY MENTIONS OF WHAT OUR GREATS HAVE DONE TO CHANGE OUR CULTURE AND THE AFFECTS IT HAS HAD ON US THEREAFTER .

My husband and I do NOT celebrate ” VALENTINE’S DAY”. Don’t get me wrong, I did fall for the romantic ideas and gestures at a younger age. But life does teach you your greatest lessons. I remember our first valentine together, of course I was expecting a gift or some big grand gesture. Then my hubby says, “babe if I’m  not showing you my love everyday, then something is wrong”. That’s when I got it, and Valentine’s day became irrelevant for me. There’s not a day that goes by that he doesn’t tell me or shows me how much he loves me. That’s a work in progress, that requires all 365 days of each year to accomplish. Not just one mere day. Marriage is simply learning to love and be with someone for the rest of your life. It takes work, time and effort….not a mere day.

Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her- Ephesians 5:25

The love of God is infinite, so why should man limit when to express our love to each other. Show me a bouquet of rose/flowers that lasts an entire year without watering it and I’ll be a believer again. Love requires nurturing and care.

Let’s focus on the Greats that gave every bit of love they had to make a change in our life, through their entire lives:

  1. I have noticed, especially in media, a much less emphasis on Black History Month. I recall a time (not long ago), when there was a plethora of offerings of movies, documentaries, and more. Unless I have just missed them, they are few and far between. Like anything else, if we don’t speak up, the trend will continue. Overall I am just sick of all of the outrageous commercialism that precedes every holiday. Like now, the stores are pushing Easter and before the day comes and goes the push will be on for the next holiday. Overall this country is all about materialism. I say let’s get back to the basics and focus on what and who is really important. I enjoyed this post. Btw, thanks for visiting and liking my post. Enjoy your day! ;)

    • Completely agree! Every holiday is built on gaining money..the true value and significance of holidays and cultural practices have been watered down period. Thanks for stopping by also and you are very welcome!
