A Valentine blessing for you!
I said a Valentine prayer for you
and asked the Lord above
to fill your heart and bless your soul
With the precious gift of love.
I asked Him for sincere love
The kind that’s meant to stay
Just like the generous love
You give to those you touch each day.
I prayed for love from family
And from every cherished friend
Then I asked the Lord to give you
His love that knows no end.
This month is Valentine’s Month and the name Valentine goes back to 269 AD when two Christians Valentine from Terni and Rome were martyred. February 14th was the day chosen to honor them. But it wasn’t until the 14th century when a few poets from England wrote about love and a bird’s time for finding a mate in England that this holiday really began to take form.
Happy St. Valentine’s Month from England!
