Here’s a Valentine’s Day thought from a daily devotion book called Touchstones.  For all who are frustrated with the gridlock in Washington or their inability to change the world, it looks at reality from a non-political perspective.

The less able I am to believe in our epoch and the more arid and depraved seems in my eyes, the less I look to revolution as the remedy and the more I believe in the magic of love.  Herman Hesse

Men have been more likely to look outward than inward for solutions to problems. . . .As we come to terms with ourselves, as we learn to be in relationships with friends and family, the same picture that looked so dismal in past years may look full of possibilities and even rich in the present.

I am thankful for love which gives meaning and hope to life.
