Valentine's Day

Now normally this is a day most dreaded for me. If your a Marine Corps wife, you can understand. I think I have shared maybe 3 Valentine's Days with my husband since we have been married. Otherwise, my man packs up and flies out in January only to return 7 months later. So today is a unique day. I get to see my husband and share with him in this momentous occasion. So for today, I will put up my black sweater that I normally would wear on this day and wear the red one. I am so blessed to have a husband who is 100 % dedicated to me and his family and most importantly to Christ. After almost 10 years of marriage and I still find myself falling in love with him more with each passing day. I know this sounds cliche, but it is true. It is through this life we share together that we grow in each others love. I cherish him as my friend, husband, and children's father. It is through him that I find myself. I believe the marriage we have built can only be found through the love of Christ that we have put in the center of our family and each others lives. For we know that Christ is the ultimate source of love and that he paid the ultimate sacrifice so that we can embrace him and all there is to offer in this life.

John 3:16 For God so loved the world he gave his only begotten son so that he who believes in him may have everlasting life.

So today, I am going to embrace this gift that has been given to me from my heavenly Father. I will take mental snapshots of the time and moments spent with my husband and children on this day, so that next year, when my husband is gone for another Valentine's day, I will have these to reflect upon. I will keep these memories as a reminder that I am not only loved on this day, but all throughout the year!
