Happy Valentines Day

Happy Valentines Day! :)

My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends. - John 15:12-13

Hatred stirs up dissension, but love covers over all wrongs. – Proverbs 10:12

Last time my husband and I had a big fight was on the day of our 2nd Anniversary.  It seems we always have a big fight on the days I expect things things to happen in a certain way.  Or for him to act in a way I think appropriate.  Even though we both love each other down deep inside, there are times that i forget how he would never do me harm or even intentionally mean to say something to hurt me or do something that I perceive as "unloving".  With all his being "He loves me" and when I forget this fact, there are times where what he does "seems" unloving and I feel unloved.  This is the cause for so many fights.  As a wife I must remember that love covers all wrongs (whether they are even true wrongs, or just wrongs I make up in my mind!).  I have found when I dismiss these thoughts of "he does not love me because of ______" and act LOVING to him, he responds by love.  No arguments or fighting included :)  

Update on our Family:
Sorry...nothing more baby is still sick, and now that daddy is better, I am just having it very rough now with my throat and tonsils swelling up and just aching.  I have so much to offer you all once this passes through and we are better.  

Upcoming Giveaways and Reviews:
I have some awesome reviews and giveaways that are coming up.  A Baby Bond is one thing that will be coming up as a giveaway with a review from me.  Perhaps we will do a "March Madness" how do you like the sound of that?  Another giveaway would be a Scentsy candle :)  I love nice scents...every day of the year.  I also have some goodies coming up--from a local farmer and family business in Washington, called the Bee Lady Honey and Barefoot Boys!  Maybe some handmade honey soap? or honey? or candles or honey sticks?  Not sure yet which one to offer to my readers!  Either way it will be wonderful and I am sure you will like it!  

Well, I got to take care of little one, and try to get  a little dinner for Andy planned.  Oh yeah...and I need to take care of myself too!  Sometimes it is so hard to forget.  

Galatians 6:9  Let us not be weary in well doing for we shall reap if we faint not.

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. . .And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. - excerpts from 1 Corinthians 13:4-13
