This last week the handyman for my widowed 93-year-old mother-in-law worked on refinishing her back deck. On February 14th, Valentine’s Day, he showed up for work with a bouquet of flowers. For a moment after I learned of his kindness I felt a twinge of guilt because it never crossed my mind to remember her on Valentine’s Day. However, I soon realized that flowers from a family member would soon be forgotten…flowers from a handyman is a forever memory. “Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised. Give her the reward she has earned, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate” (Proverbs 31:30-31 NIV).
