On this Valentine's Day, here's hoping you proclaim the truth that you are someone's eternal Beloved.

"Aren't you, like me hoping that some person, thing or event will come along to give you that final feeling of inner well-being you desire? Don't you often hope: 'May this book, idea, course, trip, job, country or relationship fulfill my deepest desire.' But as long as you are waiting for that mysterious moment you will go on running, never fully satisfied. This is the way to spiritual exhaustion and burn-out. This is the way to spiritual death. Well, you and I don't have to kill ourselves.

We are the Beloved. We are intimately loved long before parents, teachers, spouses, children and friends loved or wounded us. That's the truth I want you to claim for yourself. That's the truth spoken by the voice that says, 'You are my Beloved. You belong to me….wherever you are I will be. Nothing will ever separate us.'" – Henri J. M. Nouwen
