Today is Valentine's Day and the world is talking about romance, but it's a romance that is all about gifts like flowers, chocolate and jewelry. Now I'm a big fan of all those things (especially chocolate!) but the greatest romance of all is the one between us and God. He loved us so much that he gave everything for us. To me, that is real romance and love. Giving of yourself and all that you have to the ones you love.
Dave and I just celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary in October and I've been so fortunate that my Dave knows what real love and romance is. If you look at a description of commitment and love, you'd see Dave's picture. :) He shows his love in a myriad of ways: doing the laundry when I'm on deadline and running out to get dinner, handing me the remote without complaint when Downton Abbey is on, sneaking out to get me a special card when I have no idea he's doing it, fixing my coffee in the morning when he doesn't even drink coffee. It's all the small things he does every day to show me he loves and treasures me.
So how about you? What are some of the ways the person you love most in the world shows you how much they care? It could be your spouse, your mother or father, a sibling, your best friend or anyone else in your life. What are ways YOU can show that person how special they are to you?
