Real love—what is it and where do we find it?

EVERYONE WANTS TO FEEL IMPORTANT and valuable, especially to that "special someone." And for many people, Valentine's Day is the day when they count on someone making them feel loved. But why limit feeling loved to one holiday? You can feel unconditional love every day when you discover that the love you are looking for does not, in fact, come primarily from a person. Real love, permanent love, comes from the source of all love—God.

But understanding this fact, and accepting a more spiritual expression of love than only that which comes in human relationships, doesn't mean having to give up the traditions of flowers, candy, and a wonderful romantic night. This is so because God never witholds any good from any of us. He always showers His/Her goodness on us in an infinite number of tangible, practical ways.
