I had it prepared, my rant on anti-Valentine's, anti-commercialism, anti-establishment. How it's not important. How love should be shared all year. The romance should never stop. Blah blah.
Then the husband knocked my socks of Sunday morning. About a week ago he asked me what my perfect morning would be. I said that I wouldn't have to take Dillan out, something tasty for breakfast, coffee. Pretty simple.
Saturday night, Nathan tucked me in and said he was going out for a bit.
Nathan: Just out.
Me: To do what?
Nathan: Some things.
Me: it's 1 a.m. what are you going to do.
Me: But where?
Me: I've figured you out.
Me: you're gonna make me breakfast.
Little did I know that he would do a bit more than that.
When I got up there was a special note written on the bathroom mirror. No! it's private :).
Then downstairs Nathan had set up a new tablecloth on our dining table with candles, chocolate, potted daffodils, and pictures of us. Turning around I noticed the oven light on, and saw a quiche he'd made kept warm in the oven. And it was made with bacon, and Yarlsburg, oh gosh Yarlsburg cheese. Set up ready to go was our french press, full of grounds. Not to mention the bagels and strawberry spread in the fridge.
So, he kind of blew me away. We're not super romantic people, and I've learned that no marriage can survive as long as one has unrealistic romantic expectations.
But, husband you made me feel loved and special. You are the best, and I'm so blessed by you and honored by you every day.
I hope you all have a great Valentine's day. If you don't have a significant other, know that you can find love in Jesus, who is the perfect husband. Who laid down his life for you and wants to spend eternity with you. Who will never forget you, and always make you feel special and loved. Who redeems all your faults and sees you as perfect and pure.
For your Maker is your husband, the LORD of hosts is his name; and the
Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer, the God of the whole earth he is
called. Isaiah 54:5
