So this week's challenge to be creative, with one idea being to leave notes... loved it!
Last week I drew an "I love you" message in the dirt outside of our RV but I couldn't get to the camera before the message was gone. Hubby loved it!
Today, however, he wondered what I was up to. He checked the calendar to make sure it wasn't Valentine's Day already. He wondered if he was supposed to reciprocate! Because I didn't leave ONE note (as is more like my custom) I left MANY!
On the door as he walked into the office this morning:
In his empty and waiting coffee cup:
On the handle of the coffee pot:
On his Bible Study notes:
On his reading glasses:
On the back of his Study notes:
The words from my mouth and the actions in the midst of the tug-of-war I find myself in every day between listening to three different children talk at once, computer work, housework, homeschooling... it doesn't always look like I am doting on my husband. But I am not done trying.
I won't stop trying until the day when every whisper, every breath, every look, every touch... all says "I Love You" regardless of the day, the response, the time.
I know I can't do it on my own. I need to be praying daily for God to enter in and work through me in loving on my husband. If marriage is under attack in our country, it stands to reason mine is not immune! Only God has the strong shield which can shelter me as I pursue my husband and pursue the proper expression of that which he needs and deserves!
Post-its are just the start!
I pray you are filled with the love of God for your husband for more than a temporary stick-it-up... rather some long-term crazy glue kind of love!
