Day 45, February 14

Today is Valentine's Day.  However, I am not going to write about romantic love.  We have sufficient reminders of that every time we walk into a store.

I'm going to talk about a different kind of love, the love that Christ has for each of us.  Recently I had an occasion to read a scholarly article about the scriptural story of the man at the pools of Bethesda.  This man was afflicted with a disease that left him crippled.   He longed to partake of the healing powers of the pool but couldn't lower himself into it.  Each time he tried, someone got there before him.

When Christ appeared, the man explained his predicament.  With infinite love, the kind only the Savior and the Father possess, Christ healed the man.

Joy for today:  remembering the healing powers of the Savior.
