Happy Valentine’s Day

What a sweet occasion when someone builds into your normal week an opportunity to intentionally shower your beloved with affirmation, romance, encouragement, and time!  That’s what I love about Valentine’s Day.

As you rest in this holiday’s break from wedding planning, and as you savor moments with your beloved, consider also the depth, width, and breadth of God’s love for you.  Build in deep pockets of worship throughout your Valentine’s Day today, being intentional to shower the Lord Your God with love.

I’ve been reading some great blogs that have been seeking this past week to prepare people for dwelling in God’s love on Valentine’s Day and for committing deeper love to their beloved.  They all approach Valentine’s Day from different angles, so I hope one of them connects with you today.  Enjoy!

Hope Heals

Like any holiday, tomorrow may be a conflicting mix of emotions for you, but whether or not you have a significant other, I hope you can know the love of the MOST significant other. My prayer for this Valentine’s Day is to appreciate the love that I’ve been given, across the board–love from my wonderful wife, love from my joyful son, love from my precious family and friends, but most importantly, above all else, I pray for just another glimpse at the incomprehensible love of God for me.

I thought I would do a daily challenge for myself leading up to Valentine’s Day when we will be celebrating being together for 7 years! I figured why keep it to myself? I thought I’d share what I’ll be doing each day with all of you! Should you decide to do the challenge with me, we can share our thoughts and happenings of each challenge. So engageds and marrieds, I invite you to join me. It will be fun! 🙂 Read more.
The Covenant Knot

Since Valentine’s Day is only a week away, today is the perfect time to recognize God’s greatest act of love — allowing His son to die on the cross for you and me. The Bible says that when Jesus died on the cross, the veil of the temple was torn into two from top to bottom. The tearing of the veil removed the separation that existed between us and God. As a result we now have direct access to God. Marriage is a mirror of the of the union that exists between Christ and the Church. The bride’s veil carries spiritual significance on your wedding day. Traditionally speaking, when the pastor pronounces you husband and wife, he/she says “you may now kiss your bride,” which is then followed by the lifting of the veil. The removal of the veil signifies that you and your husband now have full access to one another. Read more.
It being Valentine’s Day tomorrow, Eric and I decided to do something special and we’re very excited to share this with you. We’re going to start a series here at PreEngaged on examining the traditional wedding vows. Over the next several posts, we’ll cover these vows step-by-step. So, share these posts and invite your friends to discuss these words here at PreEngaged – they are some of the most important words humans ever speak. Read more.
