Acts of Love

I have been crazy about Russell Ford since June 28, 1959. I was only 12. It’s true. I have never dated anyone else. He has been my Only Valentine for 56 years. Last September, we celebrated our 50th Wedding Anniversary.

We always remember each other, with cards at least, on Valentine’s Day. But this year, we would be in the middle of a four-day cross-country road trip. So I bought his card and hid it, hoping to find a time to give it to him when he wouldn’t feel bad that he didn’t remember it this year.

He beat me to it. As we were driving, he directed me to a place in the car where he had hidden this cute little teddy bear and beautiful card. I underestimated him! He’s just the best.

My Gratitude 52 Journal Prompt 6 was to sketch or illustrate my appreciation for acts of love that have been shown to me. For my response to the challenge, I sketched the Greatest Act of Love, that God gave His only Son to die for my sins.

Russell has put some extra credit in the bank. He can draw it out if needs to some time!
