Best love story of 2012

With Valentine’s Day coming up I know if you are a couple then you’re making plans about what to do or where to eat or whether to celebrate on a different date to avoid the crowds (okay, so maybe I’m the only one who thinks of that). If you are single then you are making plans because you either want to be going out or at least busy doing something on this infamous day. At least that’s what I used to do for the many years that I had no valentine to celebrate with. I could have a lengthy post about the idea of Valentine’s Day itself and its worthiness or unworthiness as a holiday…but that is for another post.

Since everyone has love on their mind to at least a some degree this week, I want to share a real love story that I think should grab people’s attention and help us believe that love is real.

No, I’m not talking about the new movie, “The Vow” that retells how “a car accident puts Paige (McAdams) in a coma, and when she wakes up with severe memory loss, her husband Leo (Tatum) works to win her heart again.” For sure my wife will want to see this, but this isn’t the love story I’m talking about.

I’m talking about a real story that highlights as aspect of true love in its simplest form. It involves a girl, her older brother and a stuffed penguin.

Hands down this story is going to compete with the best of them all year.  Enjoy.

Do you know of another great love story that you could share with others this Valentine’s Day?

  1. It was good hearing you preach this evening at Bel Air. I am working over at Silverlake Presbyterian these days doing a lot of what you were talking about. It’s an exciting time to be in Los Angeles. 🙂

  2. Thanks for pointing to the Wallis’ story. That was BEAUTIFUL! Also enjoyed your sermon at BAPC. We’ll looking forward to visiting your church.
