Whether you believe in God, Allah, or Conan O'Brien I think we can all agree that this verse from the Bible speaks universal truth.
John 3:18 My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.
It's all well and good to say the words, "I love you," but Love is a Verb. To express love, you must behave lovingly.
In addition to saying "I love you," try:
- Having sex with your husband -- and often. This can be the single most unifying action if you allow it to be.
- Holding your husbands hand, touching his back, or putting your arm around him.
- Take responsibility for your commitments and obligations. If you are in charge of homemaking, make him feel loved and appreciated by having a warm meal ready for him. Do his laundry. Vacuum.
- Never belittle your husband, in others presence or in private. In fact, take it a step farther. Praise him.
These are clearly a sampling of ideas. Be creative. Take time to think of ways to show love and make a plan to execute your ideas. What will work for you? A rockin' hot marriage requires thought, energy, and planning.
Now go do.
Have you noticed improvement in your marriage by making love a verb?
