Isn’t it interesting that we will rush out February 14th, buy flowers, candy and/or presents for our beloved and then do nothing the other 364 days of the year. Does that make sense?
It doesn’t. Love is not a feeling. Feelings ebb and flow. They come and go. Love, especially in marriage, is a choice. It’s a conscious choice every single day to love your beloved, to make the other your highest priority, especially when you don’t feel like it!
Here are a few tips to make sure love is chosen every day throughout the year. Make sure you regularly choose to say, “I love you”:
Do it first thing in the morning. Then right before you go to sleep. Just lean over to your beloved and whisper in his/her ear: “I love you.”
Try to communicate one time apart each day that you love your beloved! Use a text, instagram, tweet, phone call or just write a note and leave it on the kitchen table!
Have a date night every week. When out, make sure you tell your beloved you love him/her.
Take some regular times away alone, throughout the year. Allow these special moments to afford times to say, “I love you,” over and over again.
Do these things! Then, when February 14th rolls around, you have one big day that says “I love you!” amidst all the other days throughout the year when you’e said, “I love you!”
God gave us all mouths, tongues and words. The three best that come forth from our lips should be, “I love you!”, on Valentines’ Day, indeed, every day of the year.
