It's already time for "To Love Their Husbands Tuesdays!" I'm so excited to begin this journey with you today. I can't wait to read about the wonderful and creative ideas you come up with to show your spouse love. If you missed the first post - click here to read all about it.

Last week I was praying about what I could do for my husband to go above and beyond. We're a very affectionate couple, so he hears "I love you" constantly and hugs and kisses are thrown in all throughout the day. (gagging yet?) But, I wanted to do more. A couple weeks ago he told me that he would really like it if the first thing I said each morning was "I love you." He was half joking because the first thing I usually
groan say is, "Is there coffee?" This got my mind rolling and I thought that this week I would work on showing him more love in the mornings. The three things I came up with were:
- Open my eyes in the morning, smile, and say "I love you"
- Make him breakfast while he's in the shower
- Pray for him when he leaves for work
Challenge #1 came yesterday. It's finals week for my seminary student and he had a 12 page research paper due. He didn't come to bed until 6:30am! I was sick on Sunday and slept in myself. But, then I was wondering at 11:45am "how am I going to make this man breakfast?" So, I decided to go ahead and make bagels, scrambled eggs, and sausage anyway... at 12:30pm. I woke him up with a hot mug of coffee and a big plate of breakfast and climbed in next to him. We had a wonderful breakfast in bed at noon! Then we spent the next two ours sitting there talking and planning and praying. It was truly a wonderful time. I wonder... would I have missed out on that if I hadn't committed to finding ways to go above and beyond in showing John love? I don't know... but I do know that I don't want to miss out on ANY blessings that God has for us and our marriage.
