Love Is In The Air

So how did Betty and I start off our Valentines Day?  Having an argument?

It wasn't a big one or a serious one, but it was an argument nonetheless.

Later that day she brought me a Valentines Day card.  When she left for work, we kissed.  My daughter saw it and said, "Oh stop it."  Of course, for all of you parents that have teenagers, that's all the reason you need to keep on kissing.  :)

Betty and I have been married nearly 34 years.
We've been friends for nearly 37 years.
We have worked together, side by side for nearly 29 years.
Sometimes love is the only thing that kept us from killing each other.

We've gone through our ups and downs.  Year three wasn't fun at all.  Years 5 and 6 was tough on us personally.  Years 7 through 13 tested our resolve. Years 15 through 17 were a serious transition. Years 18 and 19 was a significant loss in our lives. Year 20 was an incredible year of rejoicing. Year 27 broke our hearts.

Ephesians 4:2-3: “With all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace."

Every day I realize I love, Betty.  She is the most industrious and creative person that I know.
Every day I realize that I don't deserve her or her love.
Every day I realize that she is a gift from God to Anneka and me.
Every day I realize that she loves me, and I don't understand why, but I am a better man for it.

What did you do for your Valentine today?

PRAY:  Dear Jesus, let me understand love the way You do.  Let me love someone the way You would.  AMEN
