Welcome to 28 Days, 28 Ways: Investing in Your Marriage! All month long I’ll be sharing ideas and tips for investing in your marriage. You can find a list of all the posts here.
My love language is “words of affirmation” which means I really like people to tell me what they appreciate about me … and I really like it to be very specific. And I also enjoy writing notes of encouragement to others. Our church’s theme this year is LOVE LOUD and this month’s Love Loud Challenge is to write a note of thanks to someone who has been an encourager in your life. Last week I sent notes to a couple of people in my life who have always believed in and supported me.
There is something very special about a handwritten note. Don’t you think?
My husband and I have a box filled with the notes and cards we’ve given to each other over the years. A few years ago, I wrote a whole post about our written love story. Our history is in that box … letters from when we first met, cards we’ve given each other, notes of apology and encouragement, and even some post-it notes that simply say, “I love you.”
How long has it been since you wrote your husband a love note? I encourage you to make some time to do just that. Get out pen and paper or go buy a card … but write down what you love about him, why you’re thankful for him, how being married to him has blessed you … just let him know you love him.
Cheering you on,
