Valentine's Day

While for the most part I believe Valentines' Day is just a another day where businesses try to make extra money by exploiting certain things. I believe stuff is overpriced and that we should treat everyday like Valentine's Day. Do I? No, but I should. But while I do not necessarily agree with it I can use the "holiday" to put my husband first and make sure he knows how much he is loved.

You do not have to spend a ton of money on stuffed animals , overpriced candy, or chemical laden food. You can plan out a time for you and your spouse without spending tons of money. I cannot mention yet what I have planned because my sweetie reads this but I hope he ends up feeling very special.

Most importantly I want to remember the ultimate Valentine gift and that was Jesus Christ. John 3:16 says , For God so loved the world He gave his one and only son!!! Wow! Oh how much He must love us! What a precious gift of love! That is what I want to remember this Valentine's Day. That is what I want to teach my children. And that is what I want to give others. God is soooo very good and I just want to put my focus on him.

While many will not celebrate Valentine's Day at all I see no problem in showing your spouse just how much you love them. WE should be doing that anyway. I see no problem in a holiday that reminds us of that. So, what are you planning this Valentine's Day?

It's my MOST FAVORITE holiday...and for that very same reason (John 3:16)! I strive to make it feel like Valentine's every day, in my heart...& hope it over flows outwardly in my life & into the lives of those I love & care about. <3

I have been trying to come up with something creative. :) I am blessed to have been married for almost 35 years to a wonderful man. I love to find creative ways to show him how much I love him. I am so blessed.

As always...love it! Thank you for sharing! I think all the material Valentine's stuff is over rated. I much rather have something homemade and from the heart.
