Say Something Nice

I am currently studying a Bible study book called, "Satisfy My Thirsty Soul," by Linda Dillow.

This week we are learning how to bow our words to God. Not an easy task for this extrovert! One of the assignments made me think of a great date idea.

Plan to have a romantic dinner at home. If you have kids at home (like I do) it's good to feed them first, then have them scoot off to play or watch T.V. while you and your hubby light the candles and sit in the dining room (you know the room collecting dust!).

After having a delightful dinner and conversation, pull out 2 sheets of paper and two stamped envelopes. Next you are both to write a list of things you like about the other person (NO PEEKING!). Next fold the papers put them in the envelopes and seal them. Address them and drive them to the post office. Then you both have to wait to receive your letter in the mail.

We all need to be encouraged with words. Let's have some fun with it!

Reminds me of a verse I memorized with the kids years ago "Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen." Eph. 4:29

I personally need to re-call this one every, single day. :)

I need to get this book! I will add it to my ever increasing list of 'to reads'.

This is a great idea - even after 25 years of marriage.. Maybe especially after 25 years! ha!
