February 14 is the feast day of St. Cyril and St. Methodius. These two great men were missionaries who translated the Bible into the slavonic language. They also invented the Cyrilic alphabet. What greater love can be shared with anyone than the love of the Saviour? These two men definitely did that.
Valetine's Day was really nice. The day before, Bob gave me flowers (carnations, my favorite. Roses make me think of funerals, carnations make me think of corsages. Macabre, I know..), a balloon that plays "I Got You Babe", and a card. On "the day" he took me to see "He's Not That Into You", which made me glad I was to stupid to know how to play the game in the first place when Bob and I were dating. I'll tell you the story some time when we all could use a good laugh. Then, we went to Denny's for dinner. Very romantic, considering when we were dating, we always went to Denny's after the show so we could just laugh and talk until really late. Didn't hang out at his place with him until we were engaged. Well, thinking about gettin engaged, anyway...Yes, we just hung out. My badness was never in that way. I'll tell you what way another time.
So, next year, instead of sending Valentines, I may send out Cyrils and Methodiui. Does that mean I have to learn a slavonic language?
BTW In case you missed it on my St. of the Day button, today is the feast day of St. Onesimus. You know the one. From the book of Philemon in the Bible. If you missed it, it is a short book with only one chapter. The lesson on hope and forgiveness in this story is absolutely beyond my words...
