What makes you feel loved?
I feel loved when my husband takes the initiative to spend quality time with me, and when he shows me physical affection (Keep it PG people...like putting his arm around me, holding my hand, or squeezing me as we pass each other in the hallways of the house or church).
These last two posts have been fairly personal. I have realized that as I have grown and changed as a person, so have my love languages. When Erik and I first started dating at 17 years old Words of Affirmation and Gifts were the two ways I felt loved. Now my communicating has changed, my desires have altered, and my needs are new. I'm not sure if it's the decade I've entered in to, or if it is because our life is so drastically different (two kids, two jobs..), but I feel like I am in a very transitional time.
I've been doing a lot of soul searching, and I'm exposing parts of my heart to Christ that I have not allowed Him to work on in the past. I'm a thankful for a husband who allows me these times of reflection and supports me as I desire to grow in Christ, and as a wife and mother.
Just some thoughts..
