This is what was waiting for me when I got home from work yesterday, on our first Valentine's day as Mr. and Mrs. Troy J. Bargeron. I don't deserve any of the incredible things he does for me on a daily basis, but he never gets tired of making sure I know I'm loved more than I could possibly begin to imagine. My husband knows how to love me just as Jesus has commanded him to do so.
I'm married to the greatest man I've ever known, and this is just one of the millions upon millions of reasons why.
I hope your Valentine's Day was a reminder of how much you are loved, too.
Whenever you start to feel lonely, just remember two things: 1) you are loved by the Creator of the universe and He gave His life so that you could live life and do so abundantly, and 2) you are fearfully and wonderful made. There has never been a time when you haven't been loved. Believe that and live it. Don't ever let Satan steal your joy, simply tell him who your lover is: Jesus Christ.
"This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins."
1 John 4:10
