Well……What about our Husbands. I am sure they like to hear and feel how much we love them and think about them also. Think about it. Men have feelings. They may not show it outwardly as much as women do. They may not let on about it. But they still have feelings. If we want our husbands to show us how much we mean to them, then maybe we should show them what they mean to us.
One Valentines I was thinking about a way to let my husband know how much he was on my mind during the year. So I got a stack of construction paper and got busy cutting out hearts. I can’t remember the exact number of hearts I cut out. I do remember my hands were tired from cutting out so many.
After I cut those hearts I wrote on the biggest one “I love you because”. Then on the rest of them I wrote one word, two words and even small phrases. As I was writing those words…like… (your eyes, your smile, how you get me coffee, and so on); I found I needed more hearts.
I wasn’t running out of things to say. My heart was opening up and pouring out the love my husband showed me every day. I was beginning to think I was going to be there all day cutting more hearts and writing my feelings on them. When I sat down to write how much I loved my husband on those hearts, I realized more and more how much he meant to me. I stuck those hearts all over the bathroom mirror for him to find. I wanted him to see how special he was to me.
They say when you write something down it helps you to see things clearly. I know that day, I saw clearly how much my husband meant to me. What started out as something to surprise my husband helped me also. I already knew I loved him! I already knew he meant the world to me. What I had forgotten was so many of the little things he does that add up. We tend to look for the big things. It can sometimes be the small things that make us smile the most. It is often the small things that help our days to go smoother. Do we ever stop to thank them? Do we take for granted that they know we even notice?
We need to pray for our husbands. Pray fervently every day. Not just on Valentines or special occasions. Not just when they seem to be having a bad day. We need to pray for them every day!
Thank God for giving your husband to you; and choosing the perfect Valentine for you!
Try to find a way to let your husband know you are thinking about him this Valentine’s Day. Let him know you are his Valentine as much as he is yours!
