Busy, busy, busy! I kept telling the Lord this week that if I just get a minute I’ll get to this Blog page and recipe. Guess what, that “minute” almost never came. Life kept getting in the way. I started this article a few times but could never finish. First of all, my family wanted to be fed; apparently self-feeders are only for animals. Next, we kept having all of these events; ballgames, showers, Bible studies, jobs (praise the Lord for that!), church, school events, and did I mention ballgames? You get the picture; you are probably living my life too only busier! But, before I was begging Calgon to take me away I squeezed in studying our Sunday School lesson (glad I found time for that) and I remembered we are supposed to be a people about “doing “ and working. Even in the Garden of Eden God gave Adam and Eve jobs to do. Be fruitful, multiply, fill the earth and subdue it, rule over the fish, birds and every living creature. Not an easy task! Even before sin entered the world Adam and Eve weren’t promised room service and endless days of sunning in the garden. (I had to drag myself away from that picture) We are to be about our Fathers business, what we choose to fill up our days with, well that’s for another day.
So in honor of our’ business” I wanted to share my

A time for love, hugs, kisses and CHOCOLATE!
I am once again reminded of the precious gift the Lord has blessed me with my husband. I just love reminiscing about our courting days. He was THE ONE, my Prince Charming! Who but a Prince would take his true love, on their first date, deer shining? We would also take long romantic drives through the countryside, mud slinging in his huge black truck with tires taller than me. On special nights we would sometimes drive through the drive- in and get a coke with ice and a straw. Good Times, Good Times!! I was truly smitten and in love. Imagine my surprise when looking back on these fond memories with the Love of my life and finding out that what I had seen as innovative, and romantic outings; my husband recalled them as being cheap dates thought we really loved spending time together: he was thinking, we can’t really afford to go anywhere.
Over the next 26 years we have, on occasion, seen a few other things from differing points of view. But, we have also learned that seeing eye to eye on everything is really very boring. In 1st Corinthians 13 the love chapter God says love is patient and kind, it is not self-seeking, nor easily angered. Love keeps no record of wrongs (I have trouble with that), Love always protects, always trusts, always hopes and always endures, even after 26 years! What a beautiful picture of His love the Lord has given me in my spouse. Not a Fairy Tale feely kind of love but a deep down committed, always kind of love.
Sooo, in keeping with the Valentine’s Day tradition, give your special someone a sweet treat. In a clear gift bag place a plastic wine or champagne glass (dollar tree, my early dates taught me to be thrifty). Inside the glass put several chocolate kisses (jewelry or gift cards fit nicely, along with chocolate of course). Next, place a cutie for your cutie (tangerine), tie with pretty ribbon and add a bottle of your favorite Sparkling Grape Juice! Save a plastic glass for yourself and enjoy a romantic and thrifty date night!!
