A day for Love



A day of stress for many a man ~ how to prove his love for his beloved on such a high pressure day.  Well, not in our house.  Some Valentine's Days have meant dinner out.  Most have meant quiet evenings at home, with the great excuse to declare some love.  We should never need an excuse or feel pressure to show our beloved how much they mean to us.  BUT seeing as we live in a society that bombards us with chocolate, flowers, candy and cupids, then we can hardly miss this day.

So today we will be making a lovely steak supper and desert for our main man ~ my love, the girls Daddy.  My girls are great at setting a beautiful candlelit dinner and they will be a part of it.  Yes, I have 3 girls who love to spoil their Daddy on this day.  If I had boys, I don't think it would be much different.  After all, they are spouses in training aren't they?  I want my girls to spoil their husbands on many an occasion.

We also take any opportunity to spread some love around to those around us.  Why not use these commercialized holidays to our benefit?  Maybe you can make someone's day.

We will prepare a yummy steak supper and while eating by candlelight, we will declare our love for one and another and also the love our Heavenly Father has for us.

What are you doing today? Enjoy it!

I love your attitude and perspective. Beautiful.

Valentine's is much the same at our house. Tonight I'm making Neil a scrumptious dinner, and the girls are giving him little gifts they've made with their own hands. It saddens me that the world seems to teach that love should be expensive...it's so much sweeter this way.
