“….you NEVER tell me that you LOVE me…anymore….”

"....PS....I LOVE you...."

“….PS….I LOVE you….”

Yesterday, I wrote on the word….ENCOURAGEMENT, as you may know, if you’ve been reading any of my posts lately.And, if you have not, then shame on you… :).   Anyway, you could go back and read it if you’re interested.  One of the issues that I suggested was to take a little extra time giving encouragement to your spouse…. Maybe a little extended hug in the morning, or a big “thank you” for all that you do, etc.

Well, being a guy that “walks-the-talk,” I decided to put my suggestion into practice.  After a 8:30 meeting this morning, I came back home about 9:30, and drove my bride (of 55 years) to a doctor’s appointment, then later in the morning, I took her shopping, and then we went to lunch….ah…a very rare event (I’m sorry to admit).  Week-day lunches (away from home) are just not something that is a common event in our household…but today…Sha-bamb!  After lunch, we stopped a few more places, and then “to home we went.” Bottom-line: We both had a very enjoyable day together. Actually, it was unexpected for both of us, and all-the-more-enjoyable. I realize that this is something that I don’t do enough of, but I’m going to put a better foot forward.

The other day, on TV (which I rarely watch), I saw some guy and his wife arguing about something, and she says to him….”you NEVER tell me that you LOVE me.” He responded… “That’s a lie…I just told you that on your birthday…three weeks ago. How often do I have to say it?”  Obviously this was a comedy TV show, but it does remind us that we sometimes (…yeah…me too) take our spouses for granted.  They like to hear a little “tender-talk” now and again. Another foot-forward… for me.

Beware….I pay attention to what I write; because basically, I’m writing about my own failings in life; and by sharing them with you, we both are winners.  Ephesians 5:25 – Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it.  1 Peter 3:7 – Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with [them] according to knowledge, giving honour unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered.
