Love Your Spouse More Deeply in 25 Days - Day 13

Practice Love

1 John 4:12: No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.

I know, practicing love seems odd, I mean after all, if we married each other we must have practiced love in one form or another.

As I considered this idea, I considered my husband and his ball-playing days and thought about all the practice. And, I considered almost all things that we want to get good at, how we practice and practice. So, how do we practice love?

Thinking about the actions of a ballplayer:

  1. Step up to the plate - each day let your spouse know that you love them.

  2. Swing the bat over and over again - do small things for one another throughout the day.

    1. A “thinking of you” text message.

    2. A phone call to ask how they are doing.

    3. A warm towel for comfort

    4. A small note or picture that conveys “I love you”

  3. Run the bases - actually go on a run, walk, or do some other activity together every day.

  4. Hit a Homerun - Give them the best of you every day.

There are of course days when we step up to the plate, swing the bat, and strike out. On those days, consider extending one another some grace and know that sometimes you don’t necessarily have to see the love to know that it is there.

Ya’ll have a beautiful day!

All My Love,
