Little Love Note Challenge~ Day 11

This is going so fast!!

Just a few days left to smother my husband in little love notes!!

The cutest thing happened last night. My littlest daughter saw me prepping a little love note for my husband and she said “Mommy, you really love daddy don’t you?”

“Yes, I do. I am glad you noticed that. That is a very good observation.” I replied.

She smiled.

Then she went to the table with her markers and her papers. She proceeded to sit there and make him about 10 love notes from her to him. She folded each one up and put them in his lunch box with the few I had put in there. She turned around and smiled at me again. “I love daddy too” she simply said. Then she headed off to bed.

How precious is that?

Here my goal was to shower my husband with love, and in addition I unexpectedly am showing my munchkins how much I love him too. It has been really cute to see the older ones find things and say “Mom, you should try this” or “Mom, this would be perfect!” I love that they want to help. I so hope this will travel over into their marriages when they get older.

On to what I did do for my husband for day 11. Here are a few of his notes.

Here is my prayer for my husband today.

Lord,

I pray that my most wonderful husband will always be a reflection of Your love to our children. Help him to raise our children with God inspired discipline. May he teach them to grow to be great women and a man of God, with  great affection for You, Lord.  May our children see in him the light, of Your great love, in all he does.

In Jesus’ Name,

Amen

I was inspired by this bible verse.

Ephesians 6:4

The Message (MSG)

Fathers, don’t exasperate your children by coming down hard on them. Take them by the hand and lead them in the way of the Master.

Have you inspired others with your love note challenge too?

I bet you have!!

Only 3 days left!! Lets make them great!!!

Have a blessed day friend!!

What is Love?

Aimee and I were just having a conversation about how the world views love and what true love actually is.

Dr. Baucham has a great message about this.

I have it right here to share with you too.

I really think more teens need to hear this.

Love is so much more than what is on television or in the books we read.

Love is a choice.

It is not just an emotion.

I am so glad that my daughter was questioning this. She has seen the love we her parents share, but it is so different from the love her friends say they have with their boy/girlfriends. These young ones are “totally in love” with someone one week, break up with that person and be “totally in love” with a different one the next. She knew in her heart that many of her friends were wrong.  That there is so much more to a relationship than a spark that can fizzle.

Her future husband, where ever he may be, is truly blessed. When she says “I love you” it will mean that she actually loves him, not his wallet, his outfits, his car or his status. It will be the fact that she loves his faith, his morals, his values, the way he treats her, if he makes her laugh, his affinity for music, his intelligence, his creativity, his strength, his loyalty, his passions… I am sure he will be adorable too!! Mostly he will be adorable because he will be honestly “loved” by my daughter for who he internally is.

This kind of love will cause emotions that last forever.

I wish more kids had this talk with their parents.

Just because, I am wondering if anyone else has had this talk with their kids?

Or are you planning to?
