{Love} Day

Leave a comment

Set me as a seal upon your heart,
as a seal upon your arm,
for love is strong as death,
jealousy is fierce as the grave.
Its flashes are flashes of fire,
the very flame of the LORD.
Many waters cannot quench love,
neither can floods drown it.

Song of Solomon 8

It doesn’t take a lot of money to show love to your husband. In fact, it doesn’t have to cost anything at all. Sure, it’s an over-rated commercial holiday… but what a perfect excuse to put on some real clothes and a little lip gloss, feed the kids an early dinner, and serve your hubby a private, candlelit meal while the kids are otherwise entertained (Toy Story, anyone?).

Stare into each other’s eyes and talk about anything or nothing.  Put the kids to bed a little early, make some coffee and snuggle up for a favorite movie. Make out like you’re seventeen again.  Take a bubble bath together.  Have dessert on the porch and look for stars. Read Song of Solomon out loud together and giggle immaturely.

Rekindle the romance. (You won’t regret it.)
