50 Ways to Love Him

I don't know about you, but one of the things I really strive the most to do is to show Tim how much he means to me. For me, that means packing his lunch and writing on his bag no matter how late it is or how tired I am. It means dropping a note in his lunch, making him dinner (with good presentation of course ;)). This means asking him if I can get him a snack or drink while he's studying for his Bible lesson, and making sweets. Showing our man that we love him is going to be different for each one of us, but I think this list by Lisa Jacobson is a wonderful compilation of ideas. Sometimes we get so distracted by life that we forget to show love and only say it. I don't want to be married for 10 years and look back and realize I stopped showing him love. 

If you're newly married, maybe these ideas will help get you started, and if you've been married for 25 years, maybe these ideas will remind you that your man still needs to be shown how much you adore him.

Check out the list below, and then let me know which one(s) jumps out at you!

The beautiful love in Song of Solomon. Nearly makes me blush. A story of rich, full, tender, and touching love. Very touching. It’s a Biblical kind of marriage and what I want for us. I want to enjoy a deep and passionate love with my husband.

And why not? He's all mine and I'm all his. Just like the Bible says.

For I've found him whom my soul loves (Song of Solomon 3:4).
