Countdown to Valentine's Day

I'm not one to usually jump all over the Valentine's Day train, but this year is different. This year, I caught myself outright telling Brandon I want a massage from the spa around the corner and that I'd get him a gift as well. I'm actively planning teacher's gifts, school friend's gifts and date night menu's.

This year, I've set out to be intentional and while I saw successes in this aspect this month, I hope to see even more in February. A big, big part of being intentional means carving out those ten to twenty minutes each day with His word. Over the last few weeks, I've been reading the Fresh Start series found on the She Reads Truth site.

The Fresh Start series challenged us to get into our physical Bibles and out of the apps. Truth be told, I didn't have a physical Bible anymore. Any Bible I had burned in the house fire a few years back. This was just the push I needed to get a new Bible. While I've still been a bit hesitant to really get it messy yet, I'm enjoying having the scripture in written form again outside of the phone.

I'm filling my heart with His truths as we round out January and venture into the second month of 2014. In this week and in the coming month, I hope to be intentional about celebrating those that bring love into my days and joy to my heart.

Stop back tonight for Life Created link party and be looking for a few posts on prepping for Valentine's Day in your home this week...ahem, printables!
