Learning to Romance

January 17, 2011

in the generous life

I am seriously romance challenged.  Really.  My husband was born romantic.  This had made for some interesting happenings in our relationship.  Over the years I’ve tried to dissect romance (hoping that a light bulb would come on over my head).  If I could quantify romance I think it would have something to do with knowing your spouse well and doing those things that express love in a way that acknowledges their uniqueness.

My husband leaves me little heart items on my desk.  He also gives the most bodacious shoulder rubs (I carry tension in my left shoulder). He also sent me a Sheen Valentine’s Day card (Sheen is a character from the Jimmy Neutron cartoon, I joked one day that I had a thing for him).  I could go on and on and on because my husband has made the effort to know me and bless me accordingly.

Become a student of your husband.  Watch him.  Listen to him.  Learn the little and big things about him.  With that knowledge bless him (and romance him).

That last batch of candy was delicious! Also incredibly painful.  Hey, do you guys smell smoke?  I can’t feel my face! Why does everything look blue…?  Sheen

Be generous!  Lori <><
