Well...that just tastes like chocolate, so I guess it doesn't count.
Mr. Ketchup and I are attending a wedding this weekend, and, as newlyweds trying to save some money, I decided it would be nice to come up with a DIY gift. I've seen this "I love you because..." frame all over Pinterest, and have had it on my to-do list of crafts. You just print the words "I love you because" on a piece of pretty paper, frame it, and include a few dry erase markers. They can then fill in the rest of the sentence by writing on the glass with the marker. Now that is a DIY gift that I can handle.
I think it is so easy to neglect telling the ones we love how much they mean to us. Before I got married, I wrote down that I was going to try and say at least one encouraging thing to my husband each day. I know that there have been many, many days where I said nothing but harsh words, but I still strive to accomplish this goal. I definitely see myself making one of these frames for our house as a reminder to build my husband up and not tear him down with hurtful words.
How often do we forget to tell our First Love (1 John 4:19) how thankful we are for what He has done? Maybe the statement "I love you because..." should be one we include in our prayers. What a perfect way to remind ourselves of the Gospel every day, while giving Him the glory He is due.
