Today’s a very tough day not having Kristen here- the first Valentine’s Day in 24 years (counting our dating times) that we have not been together. Most of those years, I would have given her a special gift from Victoria Secret or another gift, then a special dinner with just the two of us (unless we were speaking at a special event). What incredible memories Lord; thank you for the best lover ever! Kristen was a sheer delight and joy and I am so thankful that I got to be her husband for 22 and a half years. It was truly an honor and privilege and I praise You Lord for the marriage we had. It was so special and unique.
I know that she would want to encourage marriages today- to be full of life, health, great intimacy and oneness. Our Christian marriages are a beautiful portrait of Jesus and His bride the church. So readers; love, enjoy and honor your partner! In doing so, you are honoring the Lord, painting an incredible picture of God’s love for His people and setting a great example for future generations. Happy Valentine’s Day!!
