Lots of Post-Its and lots of lunches.

I've been packing Dan's lunch every day since we were married.  I'm not sure when I started, but at some point along the way, I added a Post-It Note with a Bible verse.  And for some reason I couldn't bear to throw away the notes.  So I started a folder where I stashed all those verses. 


14 years of love, lunch and a little Word from God. 

And while I may have grumbled while preparing some (many!) of those lunches, I never complained about picking a verse for him. 

I hope those verses remind him of my love for him while he's eating his lunch even if he heard me grouse while I was fixing it.  And I hope those words remind him of God's love for him even when (especially when!) things aren't going the way we had hoped.  

I like to think of it as a daily Valentine - just one more way to show Dan how much I love him!


Your word is the truth. So let this truth make them completely yours. - John 17:17 (CEV)

How fun! Thanks for sharing! It's so fun to see neat ideas and things people do. Memories and traditions are special things.

Packing lunches isn't my favorite thing either. My farmer is usually here for lunch, but during busy seasons I do pack his lunch some. I have trouble coming up with very good ideas for packed lunches.It's hard for me to think outside the {lunch} box. groan.....pun intended....
