Ssshhhh...Don't tell...

This week is Valentine's Week and I have to say, I am a romantic at heart. I love all the gooey sayings, mushy movies and yummy things that go with this Hallmark holiday. David and I got married on Valentine's Day, so it's always a special day in my book. As the years go by, I have noticed my creativity for gifts gets a little less innovative, so this year I was REALLY challenged when I realized the anniversary gift for the 8th year of marriage is bronze. Now, what in the world am I going to buy this guy that is bronze and really means something? After searching endless hours on the internet, I came up with something that I really hope he likes. It may sound a little weird, so let me explain. This year, I got him a hand sculpted bronze statue that is the head of two eagles. Now, eagles symbolize a lot in our family since Sean is in the military, but I didn't buy it for that reason. I was listening to a pastor talk about the ability that the eagle has to soar above all other birds, when it came to me-that's it! That's what I want my marriage to be able to do-to soar high above all the other "stuff" in life. So, that's what he is getting this year. The two "eagles" are David and I-the bronze is the tradition, and the engraving on the statue simply reads-2/14/12... "Forever soar" I haven't given it to him yet, so shhhhhhh... I'll keep you updated. In the meantime, I want to wish you and those you love all the best and may God's greatest love continue to shine on you as you "soar" with Him.
