“Forget love, I’d rather fall in chocolate.” — Sandra J. Dykes
According to my calendar of unusual holidays, yesterday was Singleness Awareness Day, which kinda made me giggle. No, not because I laugh at single people, but don’t you think its sorta MEAN to create such a Holiday? The day after Valentine’s Day no less? I am pretty sure singles are AWARE of their singleness without having a National holiday named for them, but whatever.
Actually, “Singles Awareness Day” (SAD) is a humorous holiday, created by Trevor Mcwanda that can be celebrated on February 13, 14 or 15. (some prefer the 13th or the 15th to get away from the commercialism associated with the 14th) It serves as an alternative to Valentine’s Day for people who are single.
So, to all my single friends reading this, Happy Belated Singleness Awareness Day!
Enjoy this poem, I think it ROCKS!!!!!!
Saved & Single

What makes you think that just because I am
an Attractive woman of Godly intelligence
That I’m incomplete without a mate?
Who told you that
Without a man, something’s missing from my life?
And if so, what would that be?
I love myself…
And more importantly I love the Lord
He told me that when I delight in Him,
He will give me the desires of my heart.
I have everything I need according to His riches in glory.
Now, how’s a man going to get to know me
When he doesn’t even know who he is in the Lord?
See my Father told me I’m above a ruby’s worth,
And a gem does not seek…..
It is sought.
I’m single and that’s all right with me.
See, it’s not that I oppose relationships…..
It’s that I detest co-dependency.
As a woman,
I know it is not my role
To chase after any man
Esther 2:14 reads That I am to wait on my king and when he’s
delighted in me……
He will call me by my name.
My Lord does not intend for me to be needy or desperate.
I am to be Cherished, Relished, Valued, and Honored,
It’s not my job to convince him
Or Convict him of that.
My mate will already know it
And consistently show it
And he will stay on his knees daily.
Not just to adore me,
But to praise the Lord for
The virtuous woman he has found
So, when you see me by myself…..
I’m not alone,
I know what I have coming to me.
I’m single and saved, and right now, that’s all I need to be!
I love that poem. Thanks for sharing that.
