My Funny Valentine

Valentine's dinner menu was planned some time ago...lobster, shrimp, broccoli, garlic toast and brownies & ice cream to eat at our new table. I wanted to do something special for him. God planned ahead knowing this would be also a time for healing and renewal.

So....we set up dinner and got dressed for our date. He could not understand why we were dressing up but took great pride in picking out his own outfit. Collectively we looked for a lighter, deciding to add candles...when he got full he played his violin for me in his suit while I finished his plate.
Afterwards, he decided he would take my hand so we could swing arms & sing Happy Valentines Day to us (who does that lol), that turned into two dances. We danced last to India Arie "Ready for Love". He enjoying the time cracking up at our twists, turns, & bends unaware God was preparing him...for life for love for wife. We ate desert in front of the fireplace, and as our love was rekindled we watched the movie of his choice. The night ended with a prayer yet my prayers were already being answered.
I am thanking God even know for just simply time...our love language. Court your children and watch unconditional love blossom. God is preparing us even in that moment to love our spouse and attend to their needs. God's love & peace to you. ~Beautiful Thought
