A reader wrote to ask if we: “had any bright ideas for all of us single girls on Valentine’s Day. I am trying to avoid sitting at home (or at a friends) and watching ‘chick flicks’ all night.” Good thinking!
Actually, another reader, Emily, wrote in with an idea. She and some friends, “had a Valentine’s dinner party where all the guests came wearing pink, the table was beautifully decorated with rose petals and individual boxes of chocolates, and we enjoyed a lovely meal together. It was such an encouragement for us to have fun and celebrate doing life with each other! It certainly showed us that Valentine’s Day isn’t just for couples. So I’d challenge single girls to plan something exciting as well.”
Also, we recommend you take a peek at Solo Femininity before Tuesday. Carolyn McCulley has survival tips for “National Singles Awareness Day” but more importantly, several of her recent posts provide God-centered thoughts for singles. She writes:
“My dear single friends, as much as we do wear this label about our marital status, this is not our true definition. In view of eternity, our current singleness is not very important. What is priceless is that we’ve been found by perfect love. Having been captured by perfect love, our hearts are His to keep and His to define. That’s why we can joyfully accept this gift of grace in being single today.”
