It’s Valentines Day. Duh. I guess you’re aware of that. But I thought I would write a little blog today on falling in love. Three years ago today, I broke up with Oklahoma City and moved to Tulsa. I fell in love with the city. I fell in love with my church. I fell in love with 20 Park. I fell in love with my friends. I fell in love with this whole thing.
I have ups and downs, but the reason I have stayed is because I was swept into something special here in Tulsa. I have no idea what the next twenty five years hold, but I am truly thankful for the last three years.
One of my friends asked one of my mentors, “How do you know when you’ve found the one.”
My mentor thought on it for a second and said, “You just…kind of…know. I’m sorry, I can’t tell you more.”
“What do you mean, you just kind of know.”
“Well, it’s like this. When you start showing up at all the same places, and you want to be with that person all the time, that’s how you know.”
I thought that sounded nice.
Well, it’s my three year anniversary with this city. What will I do? I will enjoy this day here. And I will live today to it’s fullest. I will live freely, and enjoy the love of God. I will allow myself to enjoy the passion that God has given me, and I will be filled with joy and led forth in peace.
If you’ve found that special someone, then may your heart be filled with love. If you’re still looking, relax (Valentine’s Day can be a bad day to start dating) and get back on the hunt tomorrow! If you’re heart is broken, may the peace of God that transcends understanding fill your heart with peace today.
Happy Valentines Day or to Tulsa from my heart, Happy Anniversary.
