Seeking Out Moments to Express Your Love!
I feel that marriage is one of the heaven’s greatest gifts to mankind and it is a privilege to be able to invest ourselves into making that gift blossom! I challenge myself to wake up every morning with one of my thoughts to be: “How can I please my husband today?”.
One of the simplest but effective ways is through your words.
Although our love language is not words, I am convinced that the extra step we take to pause and put our feelings into words, helps build our relationship.
I encourage you and challenge you to intentionally seek out moments that you can tell your significant other you love him.
Here are some of my favorite ways:
When using any of these methods, you can express how he makes you feel, what you love about him, how you appreciate him, and so on.
You can stick a little post-it-note absolutely anywhere! Leave it in the clothes when you fold the laundry, in the lunch box, in the car, under the pillow, in the phone case, etc. Be creative!
Send a random message saying that you are thinking of him. Send him a joke that might make him laugh. If he has mentioned that he needs to buy something( from clothes or tools or something else), you can send an image of that item as an idea but also show him that you pay attention to what he said and care about what he wants.
When my husband and I were engaged, we both worked full time and after work, we were busy with different ministries so if one of us was free before the other we would take the time to either leave a long voicemail or send a long email saying how much we loved each other. This is also something you can do once or twice a month. You can include all the wonderful things that have happened to your family this month, times where you felt supported, where he helped you with something. Highlight important times for you from that month.
One of the most beautiful posts on social media is when I see husbands or wives brag about each other on social media. (Sure, not always are relationships as pretty as they are on social media; I acknowledge that) But I’m sure you’ve witnessed when a person dies their social media is flooded with beautiful words. Unfortunately, they no longer can read it. I encourage you to take the time to flood the feeds and walls with beautiful and encouraging words while your significant other can read it.
Another powerful tool to show your dear one your love is by praying for them. I don’t just mean silently in your prayer closet, but also take the time when he gets home from work or before heading to bed to hold his hand and pray over him out loud! There is so much power in hearing someone intercede on our behalf! Practice this often! Take turns praying out loud for each other. Blessing his work, ministry, health, dreams, desires, etc.
We have an entire drawer dedicated to the cards we have given each other over the course of our dating, engagement, and marriage days. If you’re in a store, take the time to jump into the greeting card aisle and pick up something that would tell your significant other that you thought of them. These are my FAVORITE!!
Words – By Mouth
Obviously, you should always find the time to tell your darling that you love him by simply using your words. Sometimes it easier to express your feelings when you’re not looking at them, but I encourage you to be intentional in finding moments to make a remark – “wow! That’s so awesome how you did that!” or “You’re so thoughtful” or “You inspire me!” I find that it encourages my husband so much when I tell him things that I am feeling inside. Turn your smile into beautiful words.
