happy valentine's day! i love valentine's day...i've loved it my whole life. i love the cheesiness and goofiness and i love the opportunity to take a day to let someone know just how much you love them. one of my favorite things about valentine's day in elementary school was making and giving valentines to everyone in your class (even the kids you might not have liked) because on that day, you included everyone...everyone got some candy and a card in their little decorated shoebox on the corner of their desk (do you remember making a valentine "mailbox"?). as i've gotten older, i have to admit that i still love valentine's day just as much as i did when i was a kid.
-i love how his hair literally stands on end in the mornings and his hair isn't very long but i love it. it's really cute.
-i love how he is so understanding and calm when i have a tendancy to freak out :).
-i love his heart for people and for ministry...i love that right now, he so faithfully serves in the Preschool Ministry, even though the Lord has called him to teach adults. his heart and passion for the Lord challenges me and inspires me to
-i love how he is a little OCD about making the bed...i just stand back and "help" because i am not as great at putting sheets on the bed as he is.
-i love that he actually likes for me to pick out his outfits or clothes in the mornings for him.
-i love that he likes spending time with my family and playing with my nephews and niece...they adore him and that makes my heart so happy!
-i love that before i leave the house in the mornings, he takes time to make sure to tell me i look great. (even though, some mornings, i'm sure he's just being sweet...it means a lot to me. ;)
-i love that he made my Christmas present this year...it is absolutely beautiful and i will treasure it always.
(my Christmas present)
-i love, above all, that he is a man who is passionately seeking the face of God and His direction for our family... i love that i know without a doubt that i can follow him without hesitation because he is spending time seeking God's plan and will for us.
