I came across an article while browsing through Pinterest. The title was, Make Him Miss You Like Crazy. I didn't bother reading it, but the title immediately spoke to me. How wonderful marriages would be if every spouse lived that way each day.If you were to be gone from your spouse's life tomorrow, would they miss you like crazy or would your spouse be relieved? If you want to be missed, cultivate a friendship with your marriage partner. Love each other fully and completely. The next time your spouse asks a favor of you, do it quickly. As a matter of fact, anticipate his/her needs and give them what they are longing for if it is in your ability to do so. Does your spouse need a listening ear? Sit down and let them talk your ear off or take a walk together. Could your spouse use a word of encouragement, a hug, some time alone, or alone with you? Be quick to fulfill that longing for them.If each one of us lives with the temporariness of life in view, realizing we are here today and gone tomorrow, how different our actions will be? What memories will we leave behind for our spouse? Make yourself irreplaceable not just for the purpose of being missed when you are gone from this life, but that you will be missed when your spouse is apart from you in the busyness of life. Give her an unforgettable kiss and tell her how much you love her and appreciate her before you leave the house. Hug him close and tell him what a hard worker he is and how much you respect him and can't imagine life without him. Make it hard for your spouse to say goodbye to you. Give your marriage partner a reason to miss you like crazy!
"Yet you do not know what your life will be like tomorrow. You are just a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes away." James 4:14 NASB
Celebrate each other. Enjoy each other. You are a gift to one another.
