This year we were intentional about how we celebrated Valentine’s Day as a family. My husband and I went out of our way to make sure everyone felt special. We enjoyed a deliciously beautiful dinner, dessert and conversation. The excitement was high among all three children as we dined by beautiful candle light.
As a wife and mother my cup was full. It was a true blessing to see how much joy I could bring to my entire family. It was simple. I simply agreed, in my heart, to serve my gifts to my family, FIRST.
The gift of love through service is amazing. It has the power to heal and to fill.
Ask yourself this question: Where am I serving my gifts FIRST?
All my Love,
February is known as the month of Love. On February 14th, many consumers will go all out to show their love, on this ‘one’ day. In the Kingdom of God, however, we declare every day as a day of love. This year, for the month of February, I decided to embark upon an intentional journey of Love. I am calling it, “21 Days of Intentional Acts of Love”. What does this mean, you might be asking? I will explain. I plan to be intentional for the next 21 days, demonstrating acts of love and kindness towards my husband, Dewayne. We have been married for 23 years. We are friends, partners, lovers and have a beautiful family together. BUT… Here comes the BUT… But, sometimes in life we get really busy being about the business of life. In that business we can take our loved ones for granted. So this February instead of celebrating ‘one’ day, February 14th, Valentine’s Day. I will do something a little different.
I will intentionally, (plan on purpose to), demonstrate Acts of Love to my husband, through…
- Special cards and love notes
- Words of ‘Positive” affirmation
- Acts of kindness
- Loving and gentle touches
- Unexpected gifts
- Random text messages (for not reason other than to say…”your super, thinking about you…”)
- Taking him to lunch or dinner
- Preparing his favorite meal.
- And whatever else I can think of…
At the end of these 21 days I hope he will see that my love for him has not grown old and tired. Instead, my love for him and what we have built together is stronger now than ever before. I hope he will know I am excited and ready to take on this year together doing more amazing things.
So will you join me? Is there someone in your life who you value? Someone who could benefit from 21 days of intentional Love? It does not have to be a spouse. We all need Love.
Making a cup of coffee; writing a love note and slipping it into their bag; sending a text message in the middle of the day to say, ‘I love you’; making their favorite meal; taking the time to pause and look into their eyes; telling them how wonderful they are… These are just a few of the intentional things that we can do to show our loved ones that we care. I hope you’ll join me! If you are married this is wonderful opportunity to spice up the romance. I guarantee you that at the end of these 21 days your marriage will look and feel new.
So join me and let’s journey together!
All my Love,
