I gave you guys a challenge to be a better lover this year by finding a way to bless your spouse in the bedroom. That isn’t the only place you should consider blessing them.
How I Bless Austin
Whenever you put any effort into doing something for the other person, it can be a real blessing. It is important that you find ways to specifically bless the other person.
Here are some of the things I do to bless my husband specifically:
buy ice cream and flavored creamers for him
cook meals he will really enjoy
watch sci-fi shows and movies with him
These are just a few of the things I like to do to show him I care and bless him. I try to look for opportunities to bless him throughout the week. A lot of times, it is just a one time type of situation that isn’t something I can do on a regular basis.
How Austin Blesses Me
Just like I spend time finding ways to bless Austin, he is great at coming up with ways to bless me.
These are some of the specific ways he loves on me:
figures out how I like my coffee (even though it is constantly changing)
buys me pizza or donuts no matter the time of day I get the craving
finds shows that we can enjoy together
plays his guitar and sings
designs and prints out cards for me
Of course there are plenty of other ways he looks to show me love, but these are some that stick out in my mind.
Then there’s always the times he makes me jewelry
I want to brag on him for a minute. The other week, I was saying that I really wish I had red earrings and a red necklace. This year, I found a pair of summer boots that I love, but really wanted some matching jewelry.
A few years ago, he bought the stuff to make me a necklace for Christmas. I was so surprised by his efforts in this, because I’m the crafting girl and he is the tech guy. He figured out how to make earrings and a necklace for me.
Since he had all of the stuff, he pulled all of his beads out and put together a beautiful pair of earrings and a necklace. I LOVE these pieces and they really mean a lot to me. Anytime someone uses their hands to make something that they give me, it blesses my heart.

Her post is specifically geared towards wives blessing their husband, but if you are one of my guy readers, you could do these same things for your wife.
