"Little Things" Make Marriage Extraordinary

Allow me to reminisce a little.  If my dad was still living, my parents would be celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary today.

My parents were the perfect example of marriage to Jerry and me.  We miss Dad greatly but know He is enjoying his home in heaven. 

My parents loved each other dearly.  Almost daily, I woke up to see little love notes my dad left for my mom.    They were just a few words but meant the world to her.  To me as a child, it made me feel secure and set the bar high for the marriage choice I would one day make. 

I did choose well.  My husband and dad are both amazing men.   Jerry is an encourager and loves me completely.  If you come to our home, you will see fresh flowers.  It’s one of the ways Jerry makes me smile. 

There are many ways to express love.   Let me challenge you today to find a way to say “I love you” to your spouse. I am challenged myself to do a better job at showing love to Jerry.  

Whether it’s through gifts, words of encouragement or doing something your spouse wants, it speaks volumes.   It doesn’t take long to do "little things," but it will greatly enhance your marriage.
