What Do You Want?

August 19, 2010

in the generous life

From time to time ask your husband to talk about his most important wants when it comes to you as his wife.  It might be he needs quiet time when he first gets home and needs you to run interference for him.  Perhaps he needs you to focus on sex for awhile (make the time and energy for it).  Perhaps it’s for you to share his passion for a particular ministry so that you can do something together.  Ask and, as much as possible, be generous in meeting his desires. (Be prepared to talk about your desires, should he ask.  Pick one or two things.  Keep it simple and clear.)

Yes, I know, it’s a bit nervy to approach, but discussing wants and desires is a good way to get to know him better and love on him in ways that really speak to him.

We must want for others, not ourselves alone.  Eleanor Roosevelt

Be generous!  Lori <><
