If you are like me, you have bought some cards and gifts for tomorrow. It is not a great idea to miss this one if you are dating or married. I pretty much blew the first one after we were married.
We were fully engaged in ministry training. We were both meeting with student at Michigan State daily, leading Bible studies, sharing our faith with as many of the 1200 students in Hubbard dorm as we could get to. At about 8 PM on the way back from the dorm I realized it was Valentine’s Day and I did not have a blinking thing to give my wife of nine months.
On the way home I stopped by a store to get a card. As you can well imagine, they were picked over. The only one they had that was any good was a Hallmark Mahogany card. I got it and gave it to my bride when I got back to our one bedroom apartment. She was less than impressed. Neither one of us are of African heritage.
She kept the card.
Every now and again I hear about that card. So it did make an impression.
Give yourself more time than I did.
