Loving your spouse is a given in marriage, right? We say we love our spouse. We believe our spouse loves us. But how does that love manifest itself in the day-to-day? What does it look like for love to become more than just a word and more of an action?
A number of years ago, a Facebook friend shared an article that suggested some things to help a wife love husband. The original post was from 2018 and titled, "20 things you should be doing for hubby on a regular basis" written by, Becky Squire. The article has since been removed but the idea still lingers.
I read the list of 20 items and I have to say, as a husband, yeah, these things would be great. A number of the items on the list I totally agree with. I think that practicing many of them would lead to a stronger relationship, and perhaps a deeper intimacy. But as I thought more about the list, my thoughts turned from their focus on the list and more to the thought that both husbands and wives need to be reminded that love is more than an expression of words, but also an expression of actions.
This is true of everyone, including my marriage. It is so easy for us to forget to do the simple things that show our spouses love. We get so caught up in the calendar and schedules, the needs of the kids, the things for work and career, issues at church and within ministry, projects and chores around the house...the list goes on and on. And as it goes on and on and on, we focus less and less on the one that mean and needs the most to us and from us.
