I am probably one of the few women that are not overly moved by the hoopla of Valentine’s Day. Valentine’s Day has been for centuries the one day set aside to show love to those in your life by the way of flowers, candy, and cards.
We find people dining out, and enjoying one another’s company all while adding to the economy’s pocket by way of billions of dollars. But what happens tomorrow? Will we still show the overwhelming signs of love in our relationships that we show today? Another great key to marriage is realizing that you can do and say all the right things today, but what you do tomorrow will be remembered the most.
Tomorrow comes every day! This means we have another opportunity to walk out God’s commandment to love one another as He has loved us. (1 John 4:11)
Today I encourage you to make a commitment to making every day Valentine’s Day in your marriage. My greatest joy today is knowing that even when tomorrow comes I will still be finding my favorite treats hidden for me to discover by surprise.
Showing your spouse this daily type of affection sets a message for your children that your love is real and appreciated. Last month my three year old daughter said, “Mommy, I’m going to get me a husband.” When I asked why she wanted to get married her response was, “So I can get some treats too!” Later on that day she told me that her husband’s name was going to be “Honey.” 🙂 This sent chills all over me knowing that at this young age that my 3 year old recognized the signs of being and feeling loved and that she wanted that too! I was overjoyed! This was what I felt was an awesome testimony to my husband that our daughter could see that he was indeed fulfilling his role in “loving me as Christ loved the church.”
Let us all show lasting love beyond today……
Remember what you do tomorrow will be what is remembered the most!
