Gratefulness

Giving thanks the day after Valentine's Day for the love we share as husband and wife.

Today is the day after Valentine’s Day. You may be basking in the glow of an amazing night with your spouse. You may be disappointed in the lack of love expressed to you yesterday, or you may be indifferent to it all. At any rate, you are still married and your love matters as much today as it did on the day you said “I do”.

Valentine’s Day is just one day of 365 in the year.

It isn’t any more special, unless this is the only day you express your love. We pray this isn’t the case. Marriage is worthy of celebrating all year long. This is why we have written a book that offers 365 Marriage Tips to help you stay focused on the one relationship that matters everyday of the year.

Pause today and thank God for one thing you love most about your spouse. And then when you have a chance express your thankfulness to your spouse. Even if you have said it a thousand times before…say it again!

But exhort one another every day, as long as it is called “today,” that none of you may be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin.” – Hebrews 3:13 ESV

  1. I have to say I’m grateful
    not only for my wife,
    but also for the fateful
    role cancer has in life.
    I once walked a different road
    as a man whose aspiration
    blinded him to what he owed
    the Lord for this privileged station.
    Now, at last, it’s plain to see
    my life was never mine,
    but something always meant to be
    treasured of the Divine.
    It’s a blessing that the demons of agony and fear
    have brought me to realize, I’m what He holds most dear.
