Next week is when we turn our hearts toward love. Valentine’s Day has been around since 496 A.D. The most common expression of love is the Valentine card, but candy, and flowers are also common gifts. My friend Chris Fabry has established a tradition that I like. He stretches Valentine’s Day into Valentine’s Week.
He gives his wife a gift each day for a week, ending with Valentine’s Day. Just like the 12 days of Christmas. He celebrates 7 days of love. For all the husbands who are listening, there’s an idea that could spark new life in your marriage. Start today with a candy kiss, tomorrow give her a small snicker’s bar, then a rose. By the middle of the week she’ll be asking, “What’s going on?” Your answer? “It’s all about love.”
