Bless Your Husband: Valentine
Emily was still an infant a couple of years ago around Valentine's Day. And, honestly, it snuck up on me. I had not purchased a card and did not really have the energy to make the effort of going to the store. I also felt like I need not spend money to show David I loved him and with all the craft supplies in our home, I should be able to come up with something out of what we already had.
So, this little garland was born! I cut hearts out of red and pink construction paper. Then I used a Sharpie to draw little borders on and I wrote verses that reminded me of him. For example, David models 1 Cor. 13 kind of love to me all the time - so that was an obvious easy choice.
Then I tied a piece of twine to each side of our headboard and used little clothespins to attach the hearts. I just hung this up again for this year as a reminder of these ways that I love and appreciate him!
