Here it is – another dreaded V-Day. Valentine’s Day that is. Singles Awareness Day for all you single ladies – including me.
Don’t get me wrong, very pleased single person here, but few enough people hang around on the weekends and Valentine’s Day seems to leave the campus even more sparsely populated.
I’m going to say it again. More of you should stick around campus on the weekends, please? I promise we’re not too boring. Actually, we’re quite fun to hang out with. Plus you don’t have any of the pesky distractions that you have at home when you’re studying and doing your homework, right?
So this year, my single friends and I are fighting back! Ladies’ movie night!
We’re going out to the movies in Tuscaloosa tonight and it’s going to be a blast. I love getting the chance to hang out with my friends and I love going to the movies even more. Well, maybe not even more, but at least just as much.
Another good thing about Valentines’ Day, flowers. There’s always someone nearby who got some flowers from the holiday, and I love to snatch them for a bit for photos. My favorite part for sure.
Also, I want to remind everyone that the Art Club has a movie night every Wednesday at 8 o’clock. We try to watch movies that you may not have seen before, all Judson appropriate of course. It’s a great chance to familiarize yourself with movies and videos that you may not have heard of or seen. Sometimes we even have a Youtube night, where everyone can submit their favorite Youtube videos to watch. Be there or be square! – or something like that.
And finally, in the spirit of Valentine’s here’s a fitting Bible verse:
1 Corinthians 13:1-8a and 13
If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing.
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails....And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. (NIV)
