That's right I asked what is love? With Valentine's day approaching next week I think a lot of us are focusing on what we should get on this special day.
But I ask you is it what your wonderful husband does on this day that says he does or does not love you?
Love is in the everyday, the here and now. It is not some day marked on the calendar. Does your husband surprise you with your favorite take-out-meal or dessert? Does he fill up your car with gas so you don't have to? Does he help with the children just to help you?
We have only one car so my wonderful husband always fills the gas tank. He often will tell me to feed the kids but wait for him to get home to eat myself. Only to surprise me with my favorite Gyro from our favorite restaurant. Sometimes he even gets the kids a pizza just to give me the night off. He often sneaks me some of my favorite types of chocolate which vary with my mood. My wonderful husband can follow my moods and knows just when I need these little things. He will often help me with the kids just because. I am not saying he is perfect I am just saying that he tells me he loves me in these everyday things.
So even if your husband misses Valentine's Day, is he telling you everyday in the here and now that he loves you? As my dear friend Courtney from Women Living Well says why not focus on giving this year instead of receiving? The bible does say it is better to give than receive. So, head over and read her post then tell me what special things you can think of to do for your husband this Valentine's Day.
Remember you are a blessing!
