I always write in a Journal to the SO everyday even if it just a few lines saying how I am, what I wish and pray for and anything else that appears significant in my mind. I did write HIM a specific letter for Valentine's Day though and I wrote everything I appreciated about him. Its going to be a momentous year since we are moving to the other side of the country. I wanted him to know I appreciated everything about him and how much I appreciated his being a positive and good man every day I have known him~

The Valentine Challenge for Couples – Day 2

Every once in a while, I get the obvious question from my kids, “What did you ever do without cell phones?”

The thing is, I know what we did, I just don’t know how we didn’t go crazy doing it some days. Okay, I’m not just talking about cell phones either. Electronics in general have made our lives easier. They’ve changed the world as we knew it. Texting has replaced phoning, Wikipedia has replaced the encyclopedia, and email has replaced an envelope and stamp.

School projects included a trip to the library where we searched through book after book just to learn about birds. Now it’s simply click after click. How cool is that?

And snail mail? I rarely to never send it anymore, but back in the day I did. A lot. After all, those love notes weren’t going to mail themselves out, were they? *wink*

After I graduated high school, a friend told me to start hanging on to every little thing I got from a boy. “You never know,” she said, “he could be the one that you marry.”

So save I did. Ticket stubs, candy wrappers, receipts… anything that reminded me of time spent with Michael was put into the Love Box for safe keeping.

And of course, I got to work making some treasures myself. Cutting words out of magazines, I used to make little ransom notes for him. Searching, and cutting and clipping, I’d create love notes, then send them his way. I must have had a lot more time back then, than I do now.

Over the years, the “Love Box” has grown into a love house. So many memories have been made under this roof over the years. So many things are a simple reminder of who we are as a couple and how far we’ve come as a family, including the countless photos we’ve tucked away into albums.

But as far as we’ve come and as old as we get, one thing never gets old. It’s hearing the words, “I love you.”

[Love] always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. – 1 Corinthians 13:7-8
And so today I’d like to challenge you to write each other a letter. It doesn’t have to be long, in fact if you’re giving each other a Valentine’s card, perhaps you can compose one there, on the blank side.

If you’re doing the challenge alone, then you can still participate by writing your husband one.

Tell him why you love him. Take the time to share your heart in an intimate way. Remind him how much he is loved. Create a memory worth hanging on to.

You are loved by an almighty God,

Darlene Schacht
