My Valentine Day

My hubby and I had a very nice Valentines Day.  We didn't really do a thing, but we were able to spend some quiet time together talking, sipping tea, and watching TV and that was wonderful.

My hubby gave me a Whitman's candy tin that has Scripture on it, a Bible and flowers!  I love it!  It's actually for Easter, but he knew I would love it and I do!! It's just beautiful.  I didn't get a chance to take a picture of it yet, but will try and do that so you can see it.  He also gave me a beautiful card. 

The best thing about the day was the fact that my MIL was quiet this afternoon and it gave us a chance to just sit and relax.  She started off really early and really bad - demanding and ornery - but then suddenly quieted down and napped.  She also did this on Sunday, which is highly unusual.  We have not had one peaceful Sunday in this house since she moved in.  There's something about Sunday that aggravates her...probably God, since she's an athiest! lol  Anyway, it was just wonderful today.

Hubby and I were going to watch "Fireproof" together as he has never seen it, but my youngest son was asleep on the floor in front of the DVD shelf and I didn't want to disturb him.  We will watch it another day. 

That brings me to my gift to my hubby.  I made him the chocolate cake with the cherry filling (by the way, it was delicious!!) and then I had found several months back two "Fireproof" devotionals at the Goodwill.  I decided they would make the perfect gift for us.  I have been holding on to them and decided they would be perfect for Valentines Day.  We will start reading the devotionals together and it will be nice for each of us to have our own copy to make little notes in.  I do that, do you?  I also gave him a card and he really liked that because of what it said.  All in all - just a very blessed day.

Unfortunately, my sons are still sick.  My youngest son is really sick and now has the stomach flu along with his cold flu.  I feel so bad for him.  He is pale and slept most of the day.  My hubby went early this morning and got him 7-Up and he was able to drink a little bit of that throughout the day.  I'm praying that he feels better tomorrow.  My oldest son is still sick, too, although he did say that he was feeling a tiny bit better.  I made them homemade chicken soup tonight, but only my older son was able to eat any.  No matter how old your children get, when they get sick, you worry and your heart aches for their suffering.  I'm praying that the Lord would touch them and heal their bodies. 

I did crochet while sitting with my hubby today and started a new doily.  It has a rose center and get's more ornate from there! I'm already loving it!

I hope you had a wonderful Valentine's Day!

God bless you - Julie


  1. Your day sounds lovely...cake sounds delicious...you gift sounds perfect. I am sorry your boys are still ill but things like that just have to run their course. Back in June I was so sick and felt horrible for about 3 weeks...then I started feeling better. They just have that virus. Lots of liquid (unless your throwing up) and LOTS of rest and of course your chicken soup.


  2. I am so glad that you had such a nice day together. We don't do anything fancy or expensive for the occasion, but we did enjoy a nice family evening. :-)


Please leave me a message! I love hearing what you have to say and look forward to your comments.
