My honey is not a romantic and doesn’t believe in waiting for a holiday to express his love. I might get a message or treat for no apparent reason during the week or if he really wants to butter me up, a note on the chalkboard near the door to say he loves me. These are priceless gifts to me and don’t cost a penny. I love to leave him notes and wish I could spend an outrageous amount of money on a card to express my love on holidays BUT he doesn’t like cards or the “waste” of money to purchase them.
So my challenge to you is this – is God at the center of your relationship or meeting the expectations of the world? Don’t get me wrong. I’m not putting down those who celebrate and whoop it up on the holidays. If the Lord has blessed you with extras to buy or receive a dozen roses, this is wonderful BUT if you have to put them on your credit card – is it truly a necessity? Some people want to be spoiled and doted on; especially on Valentine’s Day by their honey but me…I would love a new hand mixer.
