Thankful Thursday-Love


Hello dear friends, another Thankful Thursday is here. We give You much praise Father God. Saturday will be Valentines Day, many husbands go all out for this holiday. They buy their wives jewelry, roses, candy, and take them out to a nice restaurant for dinner. Do not get me wrong, I think that is very nice, and my lovebug has spoiled me plenty over the years. But, I am looking so forward to Saturday, not because of what I am going to get from lovebug, but because of what I am going to give to him. You see, we have not been doing very well financially since late last year, and Tuesday, lovebug got really bad news about his job. There will be several weeks that he does not get to work at all, starting next week. So, things are going to get worse, before they ever get better. Lovebug was really feeling down after hearing the news concerning his job, he was feeling like a failure. We had a long talk, and he said I made him feel better. He does that for me constantly. He said he was so sorry that we could not celebrate Valentines Day. Well, that is what he thinks!! Saturday, I intend to show my lovebug that he is loved everyday, not just on Valentines Day. I am going to let him know how very much I love, and appreciate him. I am going to pamper him all day long, make him feel like a king. First, I am going to cook his favorite breakfast, and serve it to him in bed. Then, I am going to run a nice warm bath for him, when he is done with his bath, I am going to give him a massage. I am also going to wash his feet, and massage them. I am going to read him a love letter that I have written to him. We are going to watch some of his favorite movies, while he enjoys buttered popcorn with a big glass of iced tea, his favorite movie snacks. I am going to cook his favorite dinner, including his favorite dessert. After we are through eating, I am going to read him a poem I have written him, and sing to him. He loves to hear me sing, so that is what I am going to do. Saturday is going to be all about love, showing my dear lovebug how very much he means to me, and how much I appreciate him. I praise You Father God for giving me a life long valentine, my precious lovebug.

I am boo-hooing like a baby, Denise. This is so beautiful. I may very well steal the idea. A love letter is definitely long overdue for my BB Doll.

You are such a beautiful Valentine.

Giving you is better than any other gift we can give

Lisa said...

I love your header picture and you have some awesome plans for Valentine' Day....here's to wishing the two of you the best day. Even though everyday I am sure is filled with the same amout of love and fun. Take care both of you : )

Jennifer said...

That would be the best Valentine's gift that I could ever receive because it comes from the heart...not the store. It doesn't cost much but yet the sacrifice is of pure love, devotion and thankfulness for your sweet hubby.

I think what you are doing is what every married couple should do...focus on their spouse and not the gift.

You are a gem, Denise...truly a precious gift. I love your and your beautiful heart!

Happy TT!

LAURIE said...

That sounds beautiful! and since I have not gotten a gift for my sweetie yet - I might borrow one or two of your ideas! I love the love letter idea, one year for Christmas my husband gave me a journal that he had been keeping all year for me. It was the best gift ever! Happy TT!

Serendipity said...

You are such a loving wife, Denise! Have lots of fun on Saturday!

Cheryl said...

Denise,

Isn't it nice to be able to show your lovebug you truly love him, without spending a ton of money. You are the best. I love seeing little footprints of you all over other blogs. You truly are a wonderful gift and show me how a friend should be.

Thanks and much love to you today and always.

Cheryl

Alicia said...

Denise..I think that gift is better than any material gift you could give him. He is going to be so blessed!!

Beth in NC said...

That is so sweet! What a romantic!

Happy TT!

Debra said...

Oh Denise,

This is so precious. I still have all of Jason's love letters he wrote to me and sometimes we take them out and read them. Maybe I will do just that on this Valentine's Day.

I know your lovebug will be blessed by your tender lovingkindness. And so very loved, my friend.

The happiest moments I have with my husband have nothing to do with money at all...just the tender moments with each other...just like you described.

Hugs to you, my sweet friend.

Angela said...

I'm thankful for you girl! When God lead me to your other blog, the Lighthouse one, oh my goodness gracious. The anointing of God is so strong. I LOVE to pray, and I KNOW it was not by chance that He brought me to that blog. I love your thankful post today. You sharpened me to love even more...((hugs))

luvmy4sons said...

What a lovely gift YOU are to your man!

Tess said...

I was so touch. You are an amazing wife, a wonderful person and most loving partner to your hubby. I think that everybody was affected by the economy right now, but then we have the Lord in heaven who provides our need. I enjoyed the post.

Laurie Ann said...

Why you make me cry so early in da morning?! It's a good kind of cry, sweetie! This is PRECIOUS! I am humbled at your expression of love for him, Denise. You are a shining example of God's love. Happy Thankful Thursday!

Tammy said...

Sounds like a wonderful way to spend Valentine's Day. We always try to do something for each other and get the kids involved...I think the best gifts are those that come from the heart. Have a wonderful day loving on your husband...

bp said...

Awwwww, This is so wonderful Denise! I'm sure lovebug will feel VERY loved and appreciated. I think it sounds like a wonderful way to spend the day honoring and loving your husband.

Carla said...

THIS is a love story! (why does Hollywood NOT see THIS would sell millions, and uplift millions:)

Bless you and your hubby:)
BTW LOVE the lion:)

Esthermay said...

You're amazing!
There is no better gift than the gift that comes from the ♥heart♥.
If it costs $$$ - it's probably got some head-thinking attached to it.
:-)
May the LORD Bless your very special day!

becky aka theRAV said...

Wow! You make me feel bad. All I have is a card & $1.00 box of candy for my husband and son. My husband has not found a job either. I am teaching an art class at church that morning then I have to cook for our Sweetheart's meal at church later that night so it will be one of the busiest Valentine's I've ever had. I posted last week but did not link.
Happy Valentine's day!

Allison said...

Aww what a lover's and servant's heart you have!

Gretchen said...

So very, very cool. You are awesome, my friend.

Talk..to..Grams said...

It doesn't get any better then this! How neat you are Denise!! He will love this!! This is better then stuff you can buy!! Love Grams

Marsha said...

Take the phone off the hook and enjoy the day!

Love you, my friend.

forgetfulone said...

What a wonderful post! Your husband is in for the best day Saturday. Washing someone's feet is so humbling. He won't know how to feel or what to think.

andrew&carmelsuarezministry said...

Hello! May God bless you and keep you and He may answer you prayers today! God bless!

Bernadine said...

How sweet! I know your lovebug is going to have a great day.

Debbie said...

Denise, you are such a godly wife to lovebug. You must report back on his response. You're so right about all the money spent on gifts but your gift of yourself and your time is so much more valuable.

MyJourneyBack said...
