To love a husband
I love my husband.
Recently we've been going through somewhat of a rough time.
I've been praying fervently that I can be the kind of wife
that is God-honoring and husband-honoring.
So this morning, as I was reading, Becoming the Wife of His Dreams,
(which, by the way, I HIGHLY recommend)
I was hit with the urgency to show him love
in the little things.
I started thinking...
I started brainstorming...
Just little ways that would say
"I LOVE YOU"
and keep the fire alive
Here are some of my favorites:
*Send him a lovey email everyday
*Slow dance to favorite song in the living room with candles lit
*When you have a baby, put them down for nap time and both of you go outside to be alone
*Know your spouses love language, and set it as your mission in life to love him/her to the fullest every single day in that way, no matter how they love you back
*Turn off the computer, the phones (yes turn them OFF) the TV, and sit with your spouse, and just talk
*Encourage your husband to hang out with the guys or to spend time doing his favorite hobby
*Listen intently and actively as he talks about work
*When it's his birthday or Christmas, get him a gift that shows you really know him
*Be SO excited when he comes home at the end of the day
*Write a love note on the mirror in the bathroom
*Brag about him and compliment him in front of others
Just a few things I am going to start doing to show my husband that I love and respect him!!
