Candy Hearts, Roses, and Teddy Bears...

Today is a very interesting day! Today is St. Valentines Day! A day to celebrate love or at least expressions of love. I must say that for a long time I really dreaded this day because as a teen it meant getting together enough money to take the girl you might be dating for the week out to dinner and if she is really special you might even through in some flowers. I am proud to say that has all changed for me. I enjoy valentine's day. I have the love of my life to celebrate the day with! That makes me so thrilled to celebrate this day. Let me explain why: I am not be any stretch of the imagination a romantic. I don't naturally think of romance and to be honest I still struggle with the concept of how to be romantic! Don't get me wrong! I love my wife, I have no problem telling my wife just how much I really love her. In fact I make it a point to make sure that I express that daily. I also have no problem showing affection or telling her just how beautiful she is to me. Yet I still feel like I struggle to be romantic. So this day is a good day for me. It helps the romantically challenged people like myself to get up and do something romantic. I am learning everyday what it means to be romantic. Guys and girls have such different ideas about what is romantic and it is up to us to try to figure on what they view as romantic. Ruth and I have been married almost 4 years now and I can honestly say that I fall more in love with her every single day. I know her in so many different ways now and I love everything! It love it all, the good days, the bad days and everything in between. God's design of marriage is such an awesome thing!

Now here is my Top ten reasons that I am hopelessly in love with my wife:

10. The Sound of her voice!
9. Her calm sweet nature.
8. Her beautiful smile.
7. Her amazing servant spirit.
6. Her amazing compassion for all people.
5. Her physical beauty really does reflect her inner beauty. I love her heart!
4. Her blue eyes!
3. The way she laughs out loud at most of my cheesy humor.
2. Her never ending encouragement and support of my ministry.
1. Her undeniable love for her Lord Jesus Christ!

I hope you all have an great valentines day! Also guys calls you mom's on this day! It should be a rule for life!

Mike, you're such a stud muffin. :)

Now everyone can see what a blessed woman I am! I'm so grateful that I can look forward to sharing the rest of my life with such an amazing man. I love you, and thank you for a wonderful Valentine's Day!
