Love is thoughtful

How precious also are Your thoughts to me. . . . How vast is the sum of them! If I should count them, they would outnumber the sand. Psalm 139:17–18

Excerpt from The Love Dare Book

A woman deeply longs for her husband to be thoughtful. It is a key to helping her feel loved. When she speaks, a wise man will listen like a detective to discover the unspoken needs and desires her words imply. If, however, she always has to put the pieces together for him, it steals the opportunity for him to demonstrate that he loves her.

This also explains why women will get upset with their husbands without telling them why. In her mind she’s thinking, “I shouldn’t have to spell it out for him. He should be able to look at the situation and see what’s going on here.” At the same time, he’s grieved because he can’t read her mind and wonders why he’s being punished for a crime he didn’t know he committed.

This all made me think of this pin Pinterest I found.  Remember how you used to feel when you first started dating and they called you?  All of that excitement and butterflies?  Well, for me, back then, there was no cell phone but when the phone rang and I heard his voice….

Today’s Dare:

Be intentional with your actions.  Contact your spouse sometime during the business of the day. Have no agenda other than asking how he or she is doing and if there is anything you could do for them.
