Valentine’s Day is today. Did you put any thought into how you will make your man feel loved?
Sometimes it starts with an idea you heard someone else mention to get the brainstorming started.
Ladies, I have it on my heart that we should seize this opportunity to SHOW SOME LOVE to our husbands!!
Let’s put some action to the words we say! We say we love them? Then how ‘bout we spend 30 minutes one day on our lunch break and cut out construction-paper hearts and allow (ok, BEG) our children to staple or tape them into decorative heart garlands? Decorating even in silly ways shows you took time FOR HIM!
How bout we take kids grocery shopping and make a big deal about the food items you choose for him. “Let’s see, what do you think Daddy’s favorite vegetable is? Let’s get what we need to make Dad’s favorite dessert! He will be sooo excited, won’t he? Preparing this special meal is how I can demonstrate how much your daddy means to me!!” These are examples of using it to train your children. Don’t you want your daughters to SHOW their love demonstratively to their husbands when they grow up? Wouldn’t you want your sons to feel loved by their chosen one? You are teaching them the kind of woman they will one day want to choose for themselves!!
As the saying goes, “The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach!” HAHA!
How about getting out a glass jar and writing on beautiful slips of paper the following: various character qualities you love about him, fun memories you’ve shared with him, moments he said something or did something that touched you deeply, etc. These are way better than a $5 greeting card!
What are some other important ways that speak love to your man?? How about some one-on-one time? Foot massage? Arranging for a sitter (instead of buying a fishing pole) for some REEEAAAALLLL one-on-one, face-to-face time, if you get my drift. I don’t want to gag or disgust anyone, really. But God did make man with a sexual drive, and we are (should be) his only way of meeting those needs. Let’s take it seriously. And when you do, be prepared mentally & physically.
This is IMPORTANT to our men and it should be important to us. It makes them feel loved, valued, and honored.
If you need more suggestions, just ask. I can’t wait to hear how it all turns out!!
Happy Valentines Day!
