“Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful;
it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth.”
1 Corinthians 13:4-6
Some things never change…and I mean that in the best way possible! Butch and I have celebrated Valentine’s Day the same way for more years than I can remember: a quiet evening in with a home cooked dinner. It is a special time for us, and it’s much better than fighting the crowds at restaurants!
In keeping with our tradition of staying in for Valentine’s dinner and still making it special and unique, I was thinking how I could jazz up the table a little! Being the sentimental people that we are, we have saved the cards that we have given to each other through the years! So, yesterday I lived in a sea of memories as I waded through them all and found the ones we have exchanged every year on Valentine’s Day! I thought it would be a fun and sweet idea to include some of them on our table this year! The cards always play a big part of our evening after dinner as we open and read, with hearts of gratitude to our heavenly Father who is the Giver of every good gift, and the perfect love. Since cards from years-gone-by will be a part of the table this year, we will be able to re-read each one and remember the many Valentines that God has given us!
A vintage tablecloth for our table for two!
The heart plates with sweet words were a perfect addition!
Butch always buys me at least two Valentine cards every year, so I have amassed a large collection!
