    Just exactly who was St. Valentine?

    Why is 2/14 considered to be St. Valentine's Day?

    Is there any connection between this St. Valentine and the varied expressions of love that we exchange at this period of the year?

    I don't think any harm is done by someone sending his/her spouse or boyfriend/girlfriend a Valentine's Day card. I'm giving my wife a necklace for Valentine's Day this year. [​IMG]

    Ken,
    Suit yourself. I'm not a Nicolaitan, the brther was asking for some info. What you or anyone else does with it is none of my business, that's between you and God.
    God be lifted,
    David

    Neither am I as I am a Christian. [​IMG]

    It's just that I hate to see Christians acting silly by opposing things like celebrating Valentine's Day, Christmas Day, Easter Sunday, etc.

    But I understand that there are Christians that are very legalistic and apparently have a sour attitude toward anyone having any fun in their lives. I guess they don't have any fun in their lives and want everyone else to be as miserable in their walk with God as they are.

    Since I don't know you, Glory2God, I am not directing the above paragraph toward
    you. [​IMG]
