Can I just begin by telling you that I have one awesome husband who loves God, his family and lives like it?
And with that, can I tell you that with all my duties, interests, God-given responsibilities and ummmm, laundry, sometimes…well, way too often, my husband gets placed on…
the back burner.
I simply forget. I get caught up in all the richness of our lives that I forget the man who teams up with me to make it all happen. He is so strong that I forget he has needs. He is so there for me that I forget he needs me to be there for him.
So I purposely, consciously, make decisions to do things he loves.
I force myself to remember to place a Gatorade in the fridge so that it is nice and cold for when he comes back in from a run. 🙂
I set the kitchen timer for the clothes dryer in the basement because I want his permanent press for work to turn out as wrinkle-free as possible. (After all, he irons them himself as needed.)
I buy his diet Pepsi faithfully even though I never drink diet. or soda. 😉
I leave loves notes for him under his pillow and in his car whenever I get the chance.
You see, I realize that none of these things are a huge deal in and of themselves. But they are just the little ways I can find to say:
I love you.
I want you to know that I’m thinking about you.
I appreciate everything you do to care for me and our family.
So now that I’ve been honest with you, and told you about my silly, purposeful love-living methods, I would love to hear yours!
How do you fulfill Titus 2:4, the wondrous command to “love your husband?”
