See! The winter is past, the rains are over and gone. Flowers appear on the earth;the season of singing has come....Arise, come, my darling;my beautiful one, come with me.....Song of Songs 2:11-13
Reading that verse brings so many memories flooding back to me on the day I married my husband, Craig. He had given me a card the day of our wedding . Inside were declarations of his love towards me . He also hand wrote some of the scriptures from the Song of Songs, this one in particular. We celebrate another anniversary next month in November. I truly thank God for Craig because he has truly opened my eyes up to God's amazing blessing in marriage.
Since our marriage, we have always tried to set apart time for one another. We make it a point to schedule date nights and go on at least one weekend trip a year together. Those times have been fabulous! In between trips, we have started doing what we like to call "Savory Saturdays" once a month. It is when we take turns planning something special for one another without the other knowing about it. This month is my turn and so I have planned a fun, romantic day out together. We take turns once a month.
Here are my plans and the reason I am telling all of you(yes, Craig might read this and find out the surprise, but that is what he gets for butting into my blog-lol!) is to help encourage you all to take the time to savor or cherish your spouse. Great marriages are about staying connected and taking the time to let one another how much they mean to you.
So, my plan is to take the man golfing! He loves to golf! Me on the other hand, I like to ride in the golf cart while sipping a latte and reading a magazine. However, this time I plan on participating in the sport and looking cute while I do it! Sounds like an excuse to go shopping to me!
