Happy Valentine’s Day

February 14, 2012 — 1 Comment

Today is the day commercialism and society determine we have to spend money on our significant others… or so says my friend Chris.

Here’s my take:
I just want to celebrate my awesome wife.

Why?
Is it because society tells me I should?
No. It’s because she’s awesome.

She is a woman of God who supports me in my every effort.
She is a great “Supporter” (RightPath Profile) and I’m a “Driver.”
I’m told that every Driver needs a Supporter and there’s just something between us that works.
I call it divine intervention.

There’s no doubt in my mind that she is the woman God intended for me from before we were born.
There’s lots of theories on all that stuff, but in my case, I believe she, specifically, was intended for me and I for her.

So, on this Valentine’s Day. We’re going on a date. And I’m going to show her I love her.

Who are you celebrating today?

A couple of weeks ago we decided to go on a double date into “the city,” San Francisco.
We left the kids behind, with some trusted friends, and took off down the 101.
We parked under Union Square and waited for a table at the Cheesecake Factory for over two hours.
Regardless of the wait, it was fun to get out and have some fun with some friends.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
This time of year causes a lot of stress on people and it’s important to slow down.
You’ve got to take some time for yourself and breathe.
There will be enough worries and stressors to come with the new year ringing in.
The economy may tank further, more people may occupy things and difficult times are most likely ahead…
Not uplifting to you?

This should be:

11 “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

– Jeremiah 29:11 NIV

And if that’s not enough, just take a look at the people you love who are around you and be thankful as we celebrate the birth of Jesus this month… be thankful for everything God has given to you, including freedom in Christ.
