Remember how you felt when you and your husband were just dating? Do you need help to rekindle the spark in your marriage?
Think back to when you were just dating your husband. The love that you felt was new, fresh. What are some of the things that the two of you used to do together?
I can remember walking around our local mall. If we weren't walking around it, we were "cruisin'" the mall.
Our first date was at a football game. He picked me up at 4:30 in the afternoon and we drove for what seemed like forever. We drove about an hour down back roads until we reached this school. When we got there, I found out that I had to climb up on top of this building, if I wanted to actually spend time with him. I am afraid of heights, but he was recording the game for his school. After the sun went down, the temperature dropped and I did not have a jacket and T left his in the car. Since there was no way that I was climbing down and back up again, I ended up borrowing another guys jacket (haha).
Yes, as the years pass, you settle in, you get comfortable, you stop "doing things" together.
Rekindle that spark. Spend some time doing something with your husband just because you know he likes the activity.
For me, I will have to give some thought to this. I get tired very quickly. With the heat, well, it zaps my energy. But I am determined to give this some thought and I hope that you will as well.
Ways to Rekindle the Spark
1. Show gratitude.
Yes, your husband needs to hear you say the words, "Thank you". When he does something for you or someone in the family, say, "Thank you".
2. Make his favorite meal.
You know what his favorite meal is, right. It might be a special breakfast. It might be breakfast for dinner :). Try to do this unexpected treat for your husband.
3. Plan a 2nd Honeymoon (or a first one).
Try to plan a second honeymoon in the same place you had your first one, if you can. Having it in the same place as the first one will help to bring back the memories.
Ruth 1:16 CEV Ruth answered, “Please don't tell me to leave you and return home! I will go where you go, I will live where you live; your people will be my people, your God will be my God."
Dear Father, thank You for my husband. Thank You for all the things that he does for me every day. Father, I am like Ruth, wherever he goes, I will go; wherever he lives, I will live; his people are my people and You, Father, are my God. Thank you for all that You do. In Jesus' name, Amen.
