Send a song

Pick a song out that will communicate your heart to your wife and get it to her.  You can e-mail it, sing it or make her a ‘mix-tape’.  But whatever you do, put some effort into it.  Songs you shared in the past are great, but maybe a song from her past that means something to her.  And it is not all about the song.  Just like food, presentation is important.

I took some time yesterday to think about all that I have learned from my father(s).  We all have a biological father, but we also have others who have spoken into our lives as fathers.  I have been taught what it means to work hard, think scripturally, respect women, laugh much, enjoy life and love God.  What have your fathers taught you?  If you haven’t already, take a moment to reflect on this and then share it with your wife.  Speak to her of men and moments that she may or may not have heard before.  And in doing so, invite her into your heart and soul.

Routine is not routine.

Every morning my wife and I have a routine.  The order of events may vary, but inevitably we end up with our bibles and coffee.  And even though we are both reading and/or praying, we always manage to get a few minutes of conversation in.  You and your wife may be tea drinkers or abstainers, but do not discount the routine moments in your life that carry great significance for your wife.  What we as husbands may call routine our wives will call essential.  Examine your daily routine and spot the times that are significant for your wife and then maximize them.  Or you may need to insert regular moments that will become essential.  Just take the time to think about what would make them essential and them implement them in a way that is, well, routine.

Words of Life

If you are like me, you probably think many wonderful things – about your friends, job, situations and even your wife.  But if you are like me, you probably don’t voice them nearly as often as you should.  The key is creating the habit of speaking words that encourage and edify.  Make a point to speak words of love and encouragement into your spouse’s life every day this week.  Lord willing, this will be the start of a habit that will help to transform your marriage.
