Valentines Day History

Today is Friday the 13th but tomorrow will be Valentines' Day... hmmm...

Where do Valentines day came from?



For so many Valentines' day has passed in my life, it was only today that I researched from the Internet and make a post out of it (this is for my record and nothing more.)
I have read five different websites which I won't include the URL in this post since I'm not going to copy-paste each and every word I have read. . .
Anyway, the first and second site had the same thought they stated that; the original details was not clear but it was based on the priest named Valentine way back in the reign of Roman emperor Claudius II aka “Claudius the Cruel” in 270 AD when the Christianity was on severe persecution because men those days wouldn't want to go to a war as they do not want to leave their wives and engaged girlfriends, to solve this issue Claudius II decided to put an annulment in all marriages/engagements and no more weddings are to be performed.

But the priest Valentine disobey the emperor's command as he believes that “the sanctity of marriage” is part of God's plan for mankind, so he secretly continued the wedding ceremonies for Christian couples. When the emperor Claudius II discovered; he ordered to arrest Valentine and killed him, it was a coincidence Valentines' death was on February 14, 270 AD.

Christians wanted to remember the priest good deeds that every February 14th of the year Valentines' Day was celebrated.

I also read that one of the traditions in Valentines' day celebration was putting female names on one jar and another jar for male names then they would draw one name on each jar at the same time for partnership in Valentines' evening feast.
Another site I read was the Roman traditions' where a young boy and girl were to be partnered for the entire festival/or whole year and in return they would fall in love and marry.

Nevertheless, whatever or wherever the Valentines' Day started it is never the only time of the year where we can express our loving feelings to our special someone, like other holidays i.e. Christmas we have to love our neighbors in every day of the year.

(^_^) ai thank you bow! (^_^)

Eden Nature Park

Eden Nature Park... The entire place have spectacular view, I'm thankful how God created everything, the beautiful creatures and plants. Now going to Eden Nature Park it only takes around more or less than 35mins (from Toril, Davao City) to reach the reception area of Eden Nature Park. The entire place measures 80hectares but the fully develope is only 66hectares (tourist spot is 60Hectares another)...

God let Ayala manage the entire area, not the Zobel de Ayala but the old Ayala family as the tour guide stated.

Anyway the tour guide also said the name "Eden" Nature Park didn't came from the Bible and that was the reason there were no Adam and Eve statues but they more emphasizing the native tribes of Mindanao.

Here are the picture upon entering the Eden Nature Park:





We spent 420 pesos per head for Day Tour accommodation that includes buffet eat all you can lunch. The food are delicious specially the hmmm I'm not sure what's its called but it look like the "rice balls" (all rice in the ouside with ground pork in its core). And of course the fresh vegetable salad are yummy (^_^).

After lunch we went to the rest room I was very surprise to feel the "ice cold" water in their faucet oh well its my first time to experience washing my hands in extremely cold water.

Then we explored the entire reception area. Here are the pictures:

If you look into my eyes
will you see my love for you?
If you look at my lips
will you know it's meant for you?

Everything happens for reasons...
Every moment has its own seasons...

The right time will come,
we will be together for eternity,
The right moment will come
our bond shall be filled with God's Blessings and Security.
