Okay, no dark side to the Valentine’s Day holiday but there comes a time when one finally has to dispose of the fading flowers. That day was today for me. My kindly husband, however, got me a second bouquet a few days after Valentine’s to supplement the vase arrangement but, they, too, were removed from the premises this morning aka thrown away. I snapped a quick picture of their final resting place in the kitchen trash before they left for good! Yes, I often get this philosophical before breakfast when I’m hungry!
A dozen roses found there way to my front door compliments of my husband on Valentine’s Day!
“Love is patient, love is kind and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant, does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered, does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.” (1 Cor. 13:4-7
“Don’t you wives realize that your husbands might be saved because of you?” (1 Cor. 7:16)
“The heart of her husband trusts in her, and he will not lack anything good.”
“When a man’s ways are pleasing to the Lord, he makes even his enemies to be at peace with him.” (Prov. 16:7
“Trust in the Lord with all your hear, and do not lean on your own understanding. Your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.” (Prov. 3:5-6)
