So. last night I wrote a super serious post about Valentine’s day. Then I deleted it. After reading it to my sounding board, Señor Lee Nutter, I decided that being serious on Valentine’s day is akin to crying while watching “Jessie” on the Disney Channel.
I just shouldn’t let it happen.
In the stead of my post from last night (RIP), I will tell you some Valentine’s Day jokes.
Ahem. Are you ready for this? Cause I’m really gonna do it.
What did the valentines day card say to the stamp? Stick with me and you’ll go places.

What did one pickle say to the other? “You mean a great dill to me.”

Does this Valentine’s Day have you worried that you’ll never have the pleasure of experiencing “true love? Worry no more! There isn’t one single human on this earth that gets to experience “true love” from another human. Because there isn’t one single human who can love perfectly and truly. The quicker you can embrace this, the quicker you will see more love in your life!
Knowing that true love only comes from God will take the pressure off of what you expect from your spouse (or anyone), and allow you to just love and receive love in its various forms. Love without expectations! Can you imagine?!?! I’ve found the more I allow God’s love in my life, the better wife I am to Lee! I don’t have to expect him to be my everything. (That’s a lot of pressure!!) Lee can’t fill all the holes in my life. To expect him to do this would be a disaster for our marriage! Instead, I get to be full of God’s love! And then the love I get from Lee is just the icing on top! Pretty dang good icing too, if I don’t say so myself!! : )
Check out this post from Mara on A Blog About Love. She talks about how this mindset changed her life!!
So fill yourself with God’s love this Valentine’s Day and Love the people around you with NO STRINGS ATTACHED!!
Have a great weekend and a Happy Valentine’s Day! If you need a lift in spirits, you should probably visit the Awkward Family Photo Website!! (Source for photos above)
How will you show love this Valentine’s Day?
