There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under the heavens.
Our Christmas decor has barely collected dust and we are now in the season of love: Valentine’s Day.
The ultimate season of romance, according to Hallmark and Hollywood.
There’s nothing like a grand gesture of love to fully convey the depth of your love for another.
You know what?
God has been showing me that even romance has its seasons.
And some of those seasons have nothing to do with grand gestures, but finding romance and love in the day-to-day.
That’s the season Charlie and I are currently in.
To be honest, I love it.
While my primary love language is not acts of service, it has been the love shown in the day-to-day that has romanced me and swept me off my feet.
Instead of flowers, I’m romanced by my husband’s faithfulness to grocery shop with me and our four children every Saturday, even though he hates grocery shopping.
I’m moved when I hear him in the other room telling our children “Don’t you just love your mom? She works so hard to take care of us all.”
My heart melts when he excitedly takes each one of our three older children on their own special date.
I treasure our morning coffee shared together, giving us a chance to focus on each other and pray for one another before we start our day.
In this season of life, I’m romanced by the little things.
I’m fully convinced that in our marriages we experience different seasons of romance and that God wants us to embrace each season joyfully, even if it isn’t all that Hollywood tells us it should be.
What season of romance are you and your husband in? What does your husband do, big or small, that melts your heart? What do you love to do to romance him?

Barb, such an important message for today’s busy wife. We can let the little things go right by us instead of catching how important these moments really are. Thank you for the reminder to enjoy the little things. Their not quite as little as we may think.
Love this Barb! It is so true that the little things are what count the most!!! We are in that season right now and I am loving it! This past weekend he got me a beautiful purse just because 🙂 There are many other little things he is doing to that will share with you in a message. 🙂 But I am really enjoying it and loving it! It’s those little things that we do for each other that make it worth it!!
Have a blessed weekend! Love ya!!!
Cherie, you are so right they aren’t as little as we may think! They are definitely things to celebrate! Nicole, I love what you posted & your msg to me as well. What an awesome thing to celebrate! I LOVE it! Love you two ladies!
