We hope your Valentine’s Day has been filled with love and laughter. Ours has had all the perfect ingredients, starting with a bright, sunny day.
We drove an hour south to Dothan, Alabama, to attend a Unity service. (Like the Religious Science path that we follow, Unity is based on New Thought.) As we’ve experienced elsewhere, the community welcomed us with love and friendship. The congregants warmly responded to our sharing that we’re from Denver and our spiritual home is Mile Hi Church. Several people told us about their great experiences either living in or traveling through Colorado. Two had started their New Thought journey at Mile Hi Church. And the minister, Rev. Glenda Davis, was about to catch her flight to Denver for the United Centers for Spiritual Living Gathering at the Colorado Convention Center this week. Talk about a small world!
The first Valentine gift we received was a red rose for each of us — one that will last forever! (i.e. made of synthetic material)– from the Unity service. We treated ourselves to a giant, milk chocolate Hershey’s bar while stocking up with pantry supplies. And we used the rest of a Barnes & Noble gift card to buy The Book of Love, author Kathleen McGowan‘s sequel to her highly evocative novel, The Expected One.
Roses, chocolate, The Book of Love — they made for a truly happy Valentine’s Day!
