I hope you all had a nice Valentine’s Day weekend. Chad and I had a terribly busy Valentine’s Day, but he didn’t fail to write and speak words that I needed to hear. His love is real. He says it, and he shows it.
As a follow up to my Valentine’s post on Friday, I would love for you to read the wonderful article by R.C. Sproul, Jr. , called Valentine the Brave. I’m not pointing you there because he calls men relational dolts. The end of the article is so very true, and it will benefit your marriage if you read it, men, and maybe if you pass it along to your husbands, girls.
Sproul lost is wife to cancer several years ago, and, maybe because he has had plenty of time to reflect on his marriage and what he did right and what he would do differently, I find that he always writes about marriage with tenderness and wisdom.
I’m convinced that communication is the key to having a happy marriage. Maybe this is one place to start the conversation.
Thank you for your previous post. I haven’t read the Valentine the Brave link yet (must got grab a quick shower while my baby sleeps!). I’m sorry there were so many negative comments on the previous post – but what you have said is totally true – at least, for me. Now, I just need to come up with the best way to share the post with my husband. This past Saturday, I found myself, once again, without anything from my husband for Valentine’s Day – no gift, no chocolate, no flowers, no card, nothing. I’ve told him before that it could be anything small – it doesn’t have to be big or costly – but it makes me feel loved to have VDay acknowledged by him. I guess I didn’t communicate that enough or well enough. Anyways, thanks. It feels nice to feel validated.
Disappointed, if it makes you feel better, hundreds of women shared that post. I hope it helps you open up a conversation with your husband.
