A man was seated at one of the tables. He had a tablet, papers, and a card sprawled out in front of him. The card was a Valentines card. He'd mostly filled the white space with handwriting.
I walked to another table and pulled out my laptop to work. The man played a video, I couldn't hear the words but a child was speaking.
He could have been swimming, working out, goofing off with co-workers or friends, or any of a hundred other things, but he thought of her and bought a card, took the time to write a long message, and probably dropped it in the mail later that day.
One day Mary came to Jesus. They were at a wedding in Canan. She'd heard the wine would soon run out and became concerned for the bride and groom. Knowing He could solve the problem, she asked Jesus for help.
Jesus said it wasn't His time yet. Still, He looked into the eyes of the woman who was His earthly mother and thought of her. He not only thought of her but He also thought of us by His example. He chose to supply the need by turning water into the best wine ever served.
In both of these cases, the person did more than was required to meet a desire--not a need--to demonstrate a pure thoughtfulness we call love.
Here were two unique examples of thoughtfulness.

I'll go first. Before we were engaged, my hubby was stationed in the air force overseas. I hadn't heard from him in some time. I sat in my living room doing college homework and heard a knock on the door. Yes, you've guessed it. He found a way to come home for few days. He wanted to know if I still loved him. I know we see these same kind of reunions on TV, but it is so incredibly special when it happens to you.
Now, your turn….
Happy Valentines Day!
