Bad Day Valentine’s Day

So after a busy week and feeling up and down, I am off to breathe and stretch at my exercise class. Perspective is a good thing. Breathe, slow down and reflect. Yesterday’s difficulties probably don’t mean that your entire life is falling apart. Just that you had a bad day. Happy Valentine’s Day!

Be mine…

Be mine….I married my man close to two decades ago. Yes we were young and in ‘love’. How much more do we understand what love is now. Love in action, in crisis, in fear and hope and all its promise. And oh how the idea of marriage seems clearer, better, purposeful and real as you live it out. Love, marriage and that covenant promise I made to my man is reflected in the Gospel….it was all His idea. What glorious hope therefore when my heart is in His and not some valentine. But I know He has given me my man to be mine…..

Today is not Valentine’s Day….

But each day we should share love with each other… something fun and tell those we cherish, 
we do indeed cherish them.
The quote from this blog is great.
“Are you in love with your husband? Not, Do you love him? I know you do. He has been around a long time, and you’re used to him. He is the father of your children. But are you in love with him? How long has it been since your heart really squeezed when you looked at him?…Why is it you have forgotten the things that attracted you to him at first?…Your husband needs to be told that you love him, that he is attractive to you. By the grace of God, I want you to start changing your thought pattern. Tomorrow morning, get your eyes off the toaster or the baby bottles long enough to LOOK at him. Don’t you see the way his coat fits his shoulders? Look at his hands. Do you remember when just to look at his strong hands made your heart lift? Well, LOOK at him and remember. Then loose your tongue and tell him you love him. Will you ask the Lord to give you a sentimental, romantic, physical, in-love kind of love for your husband? He will do this.”~Shirley Rice
