Romantic Greetings

From all the times you shared your love
and covered me with care,
you made grow within my heart,
a smile, that's still there.

I know love would not be love
if it weren't hard to sustain.
 
That makes love extra special...
that makes love worth the pain.

You are the better part of me,
...the flower amongst the weeds.
 
You are the smile inside of me,
...the answer to my needs.

I'd love to hold you in my arms
and kiss you so tenderly.
To just be with you for a while,
Alone, just you and me.
 
I want you to be by my side
and see your lovely smile.
And just be in your presence
for even a short while.
 
I Love You.

Oh I wish that you can see
all the love you have filled into me,
cause if you could, I know you would see
An aroma of pure tranquility,
of all the time we fell more in love.

Thinking of you puts a smile on my face,
and makes all my sorrow erase.
 
Thinking of you raises my spirits high,
and makes my teardrops all dry.
 
Thinking of you gives me pleasures unseen,
and makes my heart fully clean.

Inspirational Quotes

Love is a beautiful feeling
that is hard to describe.
Love feels so special when received
but is most important
and all together different,
when given.
 
-- Dr Blue

Only those who seek true love
will find it,
but once found
you can make it last for eternity
and the sharpest swords would never
be able to split it apart.
 
-- Dr. Blue

Happiness comes of the capacity
to feel deeply,
to enjoy simply,
to think freely,
to risk life,
to be needed.
 
-- Storm Jameson

Manifest plainness,
Embrace simplicity,
Reduce selfishness,
Have few desires.
 
-- Lao-tzu

Do all the good you can,
By all the means you can,
In all the ways you can,
In all the places you can,
At all the time you can.
 
-- Anon.


A Short History of the Valentine's Day Card

By Kristen Burgess

Ancient Romans looked forward to the yearly festival of the Lupercalia. The festival took its name from Lucercus an ancient god sometimes identified with the Roman god Faunus, who was thought to be similar to the Greek god Pan. He was, in all of his incarnations, a wild, rugged man or half man who was very popular with the ladies. It's possible that the Valentine's Day card started with this wild man.

The festival sprang up in his honor and is said to be the time when young Romans looked for their mates. Some histories report that during this time women would write love letters and drop them into earthen urns. They'd then be pulled out by young men who would take the lady to be his own for the year. Other histories report that young men would write long love letters and send them to the lovely ladies of the court.

Other legends attribute the Valentine's Day card to Saint Valentine - or one of them. There were several. The one who got the distinction of the card, however, was a Valentine imprisoned for performing weddings. Apparently the Emperor of the day didn't want men to marry because he thought it would discourage them from joining the military service. When Valentine's crimes were discovered he was thrown into prison where he fell in love with the prison keeper's daughter. His love letters to her, always signed "from your Valentine" are said to be a possible origin of the custom.

Christian tradition and the Valentine's legend spread, and along with them went the Valentine's Day card. It's said that the Duke of Orleans, imprisoned in the Tower of London, send love letters and a Valentine's Day card to his wife.

There have been various attempts throughout history to stamp out the tradition of sending Valentine's cards. St. Francis de Sales made an unsuccessful attempt in the sixth century. His attempts around Geneva, and those of other men of the church and monarchs, were a failure. The Valentine's card always came back, even more popular than before.

At some point the babyish Cupid became a common image on Valentine's cards. His arrows, dipped in love potions, are supposed to strike true love (or perhaps a passing fancy) into whomever they hit. Cupid perhaps made his way into Valentine's traditions because his mother, Venus, was considered the goddess of love and beauty.

Creating elaborate handmade Valentine's cards occupied the hours for many young ladies by the seventeenth century. Store-bought cards were available at this point, but they were smaller and more costly. Enterprising publishers had already begun to use Valentine's Day for their profit - some produced books of verses for young men who couldn't think of their own romantic lines!

By the eighteenth century printed Valentines had become even more common and less costly, and the tradition of mailing Valentines was firmly built. It's thought that this is when more "racey" Valentines verses began to appear - for the first time the Valentine's greetings could be sent anonymously!

Valentine's cards have remained popular as time has moved forward. Cards nowadays range from the traditional hearts and lace to cards featuring cartoon characters and silly sayings. In our modern times gifts are often exchanged along with cards, and many schoolchildren carry Valentine's greetings to their classmates just to say "thank you" for their friendship.
