The man who finds a wife finds a treasure, and he receives favor from the Lord. Proverbs 18:22 NLT
Whether you’ve found a wife or a husband, the one you’ve found is a treasure.
Treasures are greatly valued and are carefully looked after, protected, and loved. They are precious to us and cherished above all else.
Sometimes, though, we take our treasures for granted or we forget just how special and important they are to us. Sometimes, life and the things we’re striving towards captures our attention and our treasure becomes, well, not top of mind.
Every once in a while we need to be reminded and do something to show how much we appreciate and care for the people in our lives we treasure.
Yesterday, during a particularly stressful time at work the thought popped into my mind to send my wife a text to tell her I loved her. And so I did and this was our exchange:
What I learned from this is it doesn’t take much to tell someone you treasure that you love them, and make their day. And let me tell you, when you make their day, it will make yours, too.
After I did this, I came across a tweet from my friend Rob Rienow which said, “Husbands, little heart emoji’s are kind of corny, but your wife will probably like for you to text one to her today.” My reply: “Funny, I did this before seeing your tweet and it totally made her day!” To which he replied, “Well done!! I use ‘Bitmoji’ too. A big hit.”
So there you go, this little treasure your treasure tactic is a proven winner! Oh, and by the way, treasuring your treasure finds favor with the Lord, too. 🙂
Treasure the one you treasure and take this #LoveChallenge: send someone you love a text – just out of the blue – tell them you love them. Throw in an emoji or a Bitmoji, or two. Do it right now. You’ll be so glad and blessed that you did.
