I am a words person. I Love the written word as well as the spoken. I listen carefully to the words people use as it says a lot about them. I really Love to leave notes for Dwight… I think partly because I hope he will write me back! Yes… it sounds a little like middle school BUT the childlike aspect of it all is fun and keeps our Love growing.
The impact our notes can have on our spouses is amazing… we are their partner… so when they have a bad day it is probably going to end up impacting us as well! So be supportive…and encouraging. Leave your spouse a note today… a sweet note… short and simple. Let us know how your spouse reacts! 😀 – Stacy
“We all have days that make us want to blow (women probably more than men, I would say!). Stifled anger, stored-up insults, tensions and pressures, hormones and sugar lows. And it’s natural to just blow and get it all out. But that often occurs at the expense of those whom we love the most.
What if, during those difficult days, you could remember something at the core of your being? You are loved. Not just by your spouse, but by the Author of Love, the One who gave Himself for you so that you might live eternally with Him. The God who would rather die than live without you found a way to make you His own.
What if – on those days that your wife is really having a hard time – you found a way to remind her that she is loved? What if – during those times that your man is under extreme pressure and coming up with few words for you –you found some extra meaningful words for him? What if you both realized, in the fiery pit of everyday tensions, the power of a note?”
