Signs of Love
Signs of Love
A friend shared with me that she had read the book that started the process of understanding the signs of love in their relationship. It helped her to realize how different she was from her husband. It also helped her to understand that she needed to start reading between the lines - concerning actions. She shared with me, "This was the first time I was told that my husband was a "fixer". She had not realized that when she asked him to listen - he interpreted that to say that she was requesting him to "fix-it". All the while she was thinking that he was bossing her with his suggestions.But he was actually trying to fix the situation for her. It made a big difference in her life, realizing she needed to read - between the lines.
When you believe that love should be shown only in a certain way, most likely you will be disappointed. It is very rare that your spouse will get it right every time according to your desires.
You may be surprised how much you are shown love throughout your day. I was talking to a lady who was sharing that she had never experienced unconditional love. When I asked her "How many years she had been married?" She told me over forty, I point out that forty plus years of marriage was unconditional love.
Most Fairy Tales end with a romantic kiss and the hero carries his love away. Personally, my day does not always end in a romantic kiss but my hero carries my heart away every time.
In the book The 5 Love Languages: The Secret to Love that Lasts , Chapman brings out five ways that love might be shown. Affirmation, Quality Time, Giving Gifts, Service to Others and Physical Touch. This book is not Christian based and brings about a lot of controversial on if the author is Biblically sound. I do like how he shows different avenues in which people show love.
I would love to hear from you. Chat is available on the right hand corner of this page, I am online through out the day.
