When I met Nicole, I had just been through a painful divorce. Divorce is horrible! It feels like getting your heart RIPPED OUT of your chest!
I thought that getting remarried would put me BACK in the position to get it ripped out, again.
So, for the first year of our marriage, I struggled to tell my own wife that I loved her. When I tried to say “I love you,” the words came out one-of-two ways.
As long as I didn’t have to make eye contact, I could make it sound natural and caring. But if our eyes met, the only way I could say it was in my Donald Duck voice!
(See how jacked up I was!)
Nicole gently helped me work through those fears. I gradually learned to look her IN THE EYES and say it like I meant it.
You get what you sow. Sow love…get MORE love!
Text something nice! Slip a card or note in their bag! Leave a romantic Post-it on the bathroom mirror!
If you have someone who truly loves you, do everything you can to CELEBRATE that!
Happy Valentine’s Day! I call you BLESSED!
Don’t miss Week 3 of the “He Said, She Said” series. Nicole and I will be preaching together for the final weekend. See you there!
