I want to be a sweetheart. You know, the kind of person that people are always saying, “isn’t she just the sweetest thing?” You’ve already had a name pop in your head. I want to be known for my sweetness. People are attracted to sweetness. I don’t want to wait until I’m a little ole’ lady & have people say it about me.I want it now! Is it learned? Or is something you’re born with & comes naturally? Seriously, don’t laugh. I really want to know. Can it be taught? Should it be? I use to be a very angry girl. I suppose you could say I was rough around the edges. I was mad about a lot of things. I can still be tempted to react to people this way, but oh how the Lord has sanded off some of those prickly spots! It’s been a little painful, but worth it. So maybe He’s uncovering a sweetness inside that’ll start showing soon? I know He’s still got a lot of sanding & molding to do….I sure hope there’s some sweetness inside!
I’m not a real big Valentine’s Day celebrator. Maybe it’s because I don’t like that there’s only one day a year when we’re suppose to declare our love for one another. When we’re suppose to purchase an expensive card that may or may not end up in the keepsake box. Give gifts or flowers. Don’t get me wrong, I like flowers, gifts & heart shaped pancakes, but I don’t want them if you feel like you have to…I want them to be a surprise or just out of the blue. You can tell my love language isn’t receiving gifts, can’t you? My love languages are (in this order) words of affirmation, quality time & touch. So, the cards do mean something to me, but if they’re your words…they mean a whole lot more!
So, how am I tying the first paragraph & the second paragraph together? Well, it’s because Valentine’s Day is just a few days away & everybody turns into “Sweethearts.” I could be included in this too. I don’t want to be sweet just a few holidays out of the year. I want to be sweet everyday!
