The Countdown to A Love Supreme Day

So, here we are about 14 days away from Valentine’s Day. Many people are going into overdrive trying to lockdown their dates for Feb. 14th. Others could care less because they see Valentine’s Day as just another day to make money off of a bunch of lovesick suckers. As for me, I’m cool as a cucumber because I have figured out how I will spend the 14 days leading up to Valentine’s Day, the big day, and the days thereafter.

As you’ll see in the title of this post, I’ve taken the liberty of renaming Valentine’s Day “A Love Supreme Day”. Yeah, I know, that’s the name of a John Coltrane album. He wasn’t so much my inspiration for the rename. Instead, God is the inspiration for the rename because, after all, He is “a love supreme”. And as such I wanted to make this race to the finish for Valentine’s Day all about Him by doing a countdown of some of my favorite love songs to Him. It’s like a mix tape for the lover of my soul.

So join me on this countdown to A Love Supreme Day where we will take our eyes off of the earthly expectations of Valentine’s Day; the flowers, the candy, the dinner by candlelight and instead focus on the heavenly expectation and reality of being extravagantly, luxuriously, opulently, decadently, beautifully, completely and unconditionally loved by God. Speaking of love, here is #14 on the countdown to a Love Supreme Day:

  1. This is a great idea! Have you ever heard Chrisette Michele’s sing Golden? Even though it is not a gospel song, I sometimes sing it as a song of worship, and with a few word changes it is like my very own love song to God.
