Tonight my Care Group (what we call small groups at my church) had a special Valentine’s dinner for the married couples. As one of the few singles in the group I wasn’t originally going to be part of the dinner, but I felt God wanted me to go and serve them. It was a special time and I’m glad I was able to be part of it.
The ladies of the group organized everything from food to what we were going to do, and the men weren’t allowed to do anything. Each lady served her husband his plate for dinner, from a menu of Italian dishes, and after dinner each one shared something they had written to their husband. As a single woman it was so neat for me to see these women, all of whom I love and respect serve their husbands, and to hear what they had to say to him.
If God wills and I do get married someday, I pray I will be able to follow their example and serve my husband in the same way. I have a new respect for each of the men in the group, and I pray I can find someone just like them someday.
To the Married Couples: Thank you for letting me be part of the dinner tonight and serve you. Thank you for the example you are to me.
Day 53: Thank you Lord for the married couples in my Care Group, and the example they are to me. Help me to follow in their footsteps with my own husband someday.
