I spent a Saturday morning at the end of January with a great group of ladies learning about a sweet Valentines tradition. I don't know if it has an official name... maybe "Fourteen Days of Blessing Your Husband."
The idea is to do a little something each day for all the days of February leading up to Valentines Day, expressing your love and respect for him.
Some give little clues along the way leading up to the "big" gift on Valentines Day. Others have publicly declared their love with yard-sale type songs all along their husband's route to work saying "Trish loves Jerry." How cute is that!?
The picture above is from a surprise visit we paid to Dan at work this week. Another day he found found chocolates in his car, and he has had employees deliver little gifts to him at his various office locations. Who knows what will happen next!
And if your marriage could use a little refresher or you want to learn more about what it means to respect your hubby, check out Created to be His Helpmeet by Debi Pearl. Click here to order it. It's not easy to read, but it will bless your marriage as you pray your way through it. If you haven't read the Pearls before, be forewarned... for most of us, parts of it are like reading about a different culture. But I think this is their best book yet, and I know it blessed our marriage immensely.
Happy Valentines Day!
