LOVE Project: Operation Hubby-Love

LOVE ProjectAnaleisa LathamComment

As I mentioned in my LOVE Project post one of the areas I want to "improve" my love in is loving my Husband. 

I could say so much about how great he is about loving me. In fact, we were talking about this just last night as I was sitting in the bath he had drawn for me, with the glass of wine he brought me, complete with candles all around the tub. (But seriously, that happened. I'm not making it up.) I made some comment about always feeling inferior in my love for him. His response was basically, "The more awesome I am at loving you, the more it makes you want to keep up." And you know what? He's right and that is how it works in our marriage. The more he loves me, the more I want to love him better. 

But you guys...I have some work to do. I am selfish, o so selfish. I am grouchy. I am lazy. And, get ready for it, sometimes I am just down-right mean.

At times I feel like I don't even know where to start to "get better."

(And of course, at the end of the day, the only one who can help me succeed is God.) But I think there are intentional ways to live each day to show my love and "make it better." 

Coincidentally, early this week, I ran across this post from Time Warp Wife - 103 Words of Affirmation Every Husband Wants to Hear

And I thought, THIS is a tangible way to show my love. 

So I'm going to start practicing these and finding some ways to use them. 

What about you guys? Are there things you practice telling your husband or specific ways you show your love?
