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:

RAINBOW—-WHAT IT MEANS TO ME!!!!

Scientifically:

A rainbow is an optical and meteorological phenomenon that causes a spectrum of light to appear in the sky when the Sun shines on to droplets of moisture in the Earth’s atmosphere. It takes the form of a multicolored arc. Rainbows caused by sunlight always appear in the section of sky directly opposite the sun.

TO THE WORLD:

Rainbow tends to be used as a sign of a new era, of hope, or of social change. Recently in the 1970′s a rainbow flag was used to represent pride flag, LGBT pride flag or gay pride flag,  a symbol of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT. It originated in California, but is now used worldwide

The six-colour version of the pride flag is the most commonly used version. The original version from 1978 had two additional stripes — pink and turquoise — which were removed due to manufacturing requirements.

 

TO ME:

It’s simply just a reminder first and foremost of God’s beautiful “GRACE”. Of his love and mercy. OF HIS RETURN!!!! The rainbow is God’s sign that out of His mercy, He is withholding His just judgment. The day will come when the Lord Jesus Christ will return to judge a sinful and fallen world such has the one we are now living in. It’s a reminder that he will not consume this world again with a flood, but with fire. It reminds me of the Grace God as given us through Christ Jesus to accept him has our Lord and Savior before this faithful day come to pass

THE WORD TELLS US:

“And God said, This is the token of the covenant which I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations: I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth.” (Genesis 9:12-13)

The rainbow symbolized God‘s mercy and The Covenant He made with Noah (representing mankind) not to destroy the world in such a way again. (WITH FLOOD)

CONCLUSION: Regardless of your sexuality, your religion, your choices in life, this is from the very word of God, His Holy Bible. Has Christians we don’t own what God gave to us…we are just sitting back and letting everything be taken from us. The rainbow represents God in all his glory for me. Not someone’s sexual preference. I will not teach my child about the rainbow from the world’s perspective, but rather from God’s promises. This is not a gay bashing post. I do not “hate” gay people, I DO HOWEVER HATE THE SIN. Again just going by the word of God, just so happens my conviction is greater than my own opinion.

I STAND FOR CHRIST AND HIS PROMISE IN HIS BEAUTIFUL RAINBOW-

IF I DON’T STAND FOR HIM, I’LL FALL WITH THE WORLD ….
