Thirsty For Romance

thursday-logo

We want to start a new segment on Thursdays we are calling, 

“Thirsty For Romance”

Imagine someone giving you a refreshing drink on a hot, summer day. We enjoy it. It feels good, and it invigorates us. Romance provides the same refreshment to our marriage. To neglect it means our spouse will be lacking something they need.

It’s helpful to remember that romance is different for each marriage. What you call romantic may or may not speak the same to someone else. Tom and I love this definition:

Romance is the skill of communicating your commitment to, love for and enjoyment of your spouse in ways that convince him or her of the priority of your marriage.

I will provide a quick romantic tip each Thursday in the hopes of inspiring you on this quest of a lifetime.

Romantic Tip: Look your spouse in the eye and encourage them for something you have noticed. Be specific and sincere.

Feel free to share with us your romantic tips in the comments. We’d love to add it to our growing list.

  1. Amen, I like this.:-)

  2. There’s no romance here – I’m a combat veteran, and my wife knows enough about me and what I have seen and done so that she can never look at me that way again.

    Nonetheless, I can give support and love, with both encouragement and prayer.

      Andrew, It’s good to hear from you. I understand not all marriages are in a place for special moments, especially those in a crisis or terminal illness. You do what you can to encourage your spouse in meaningful ways to her.
      Prayer, support, encouragement and love are also much needed for a lasting marriage.
      Thanks for reminding us of this and we will pray for you!

  3. Andrew, we’ll pray for renewal for your wife and you. Nothing is too difficult with God.
    “With God, ALL THINGS are possible.” Matthew 19:26.

    With blessing and Prayers, Wende & Peter
