Celebrating Your Love

In case you still need some ideas for Valentine’s Day, here are Twenty-six more good ideas.

Amorous words are not outdated. Write your husband a poem, sing him a song, buy him a romantic card.

Bake his favorite dessert and serve it by candlelight after the children are in bed.

Compliment him – on his looks, his dedication to the Lord, his way with your children.

Drive the next time the two of you go somewhere, and let him relax and enjoy the scenery.

Enumerate his fine qualities, using this modified line of Elizabeth Barrett Browning’s” “Why do I love thee? Let me count the whys.” Tape the list to the mirror.

Fish, golf, hunt with him – or at least read up on his hobby.

Give him the gift of time: do a job usually his.

Hide encouraging Scripture verses or personal notes in his coat pocket, his wallet, his sock drawer, or on the steering wheel.

Indulge him with the luxury of breakfast in bed-served on a decorated tray.

Join him for a day at his work – in his office, classroom, or just for lunch.

Kiss him goodbye when he leaves for work. It’s easy to get out of the habit in the rush of life.

Learn more about him. Do you know his favorite childhood memory? The best Christmas present he ever received? His favorite record? The time he was the most afraid?

Meet him for lunch. Use fast-food coupons. or pack a sack lunch to share.

New photos of the two of you can make the ordinary a day to remember. So get out the camera and frame the results.

Old, cherished wedding pictures can help you remember when your love was new.

Prepare his favorite meal.

Quips and cartoons can lighten his day. Cut them out and give them to him on a day he needs a lift.

Read a book together. Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “It is a tie between men to have read the same book.”

Smile when you see him.

Thank him for the routine things you tend to expect him to do.

Uphold him in prayer.

Valentines aren’t just for February. Give him a little gift – a pen, a magazine he likes, a favorite candy bar – along with a love note.

Wash and wax the car for him.

Xercise to keep yourself looking good.

Yes, let’s do it!” Make that your answer when he suggests things to do – a walk, watching the sunset, taking a day to go somewhere, whatever.

Zzzzzzzzzzzz. Let him take a long undisturbed nap while you entertain the children elsewhere.

One great way to celebrate your love is going to church to worship together. I pray you’re making plans to be there this Sunday! See you there!

With love,
