One Thousand Gifts (continued)

"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking. It is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always preservers. Love never fails." 
(1 Corinthians 13:4-8)

It was the best date ever!  We had so much fun!  I found the idea from http://loveactually-blog.blogspot.ca/2009/05/bookstore-date.html.  The bookstore date challenge was a blast, and it was the perfect way to celebrate Valentine's Day.

We had to find a date idea for a future date night...

...a new recipe we'd like to try...

...a self-help book that applies to ourselves...

...enjoy a hot chocolate and a pastry while reviewing the fun we had...
and much more!

I am so thankful to God for my Valentine!  I am thankful for the fun that we can have, for our friendship, and the love that we share.
