Love Languages

I have talked about the love languages in a previous post but I had this crazy thing happen this evening. As I was checking my email, trying to avoid writing a paper that is due tomorrow, I came across an email from Habitat for Humanity. I have been wanting to volunteer for this organization for many years and signed up for their email list about 1 year ago. (Background) Nate is two days younger than I am and he loves bdays. (Sorry dear, it's true.) So we always try to get something together that's really fun and shows each of our personalities. Last year we had a whole weekend thing because we turned 30. I love, love murder mystery dinners and wanted to dance (also a favorite of mine) so we went to the grapevine theater for a murder mystery dinner and glass cactus to cut a rug. Now Nate loves all things sports so the following day we went to a Rangers game. (Back to Present day) I told Nate several months ago that this year I wanted to do a service project with any friends that wanted to join in for my bday. Low and behold the email comes tonight and the service project is April 6th the day before my bday! Back to the love languages; my love language is "quality time", but I somehow got it in my brain that the way to show love is "acts of service". Unfortunately, Nate's love language is not "acts of service", his love language (he said I could tell) is "words of affirmation". Anyway due to my need to show love I may go a bit overboard with volunteering. I have been working on scaling back but it's very difficult for me. Regardless I am so excited to volunteer for Habitat for Humanity on April 6th. If anyone is interested in joining us, please let me know!!! I am truly encouraged by God's perfect plan on a daily basis, which brings me to the saying, "it's funny how things work out." Is it funny, or just more info that God is in control"?
