Mark says: Sometimes in marriage, the little things are really the big things.

Jill says: Today’s Marriage Monday is short and sweet.  A simple challenge to you to do something intentional to connect with your spouse.

Mark says: Here are a few ideas:

  • Send him or her a text just to say “I love you,” or “I’m thinking of you!”
  • Pick up flowers on the way home (If you have an Aldi nearby, they have bouquets for $3.99!)
  • Call your spouse to tell him or her you’re thinking of them.
  • Start planning a getaway for just the two of you. (Include your spouse in the planning if they don’t like surprises.)
  • Listen…really listen to your spouse this evening.
  • Notice. Notice something they do for you on a regular basis and say thank you.
  • Smile at your spouse. Let him or her know how much you enjoy being with them.
  • Give a 15 second kiss.
  • Using a dry erase marker, write a note of love on the bathroom mirror or on the rear view mirror of their car.

What about you? What ideas do you have to intentionally connect with your spouse?
