If your wife’s love language is physical touch then be sure to express it.
Even if it’s not a primary love language, a good back or foot rub, or a massage with no “intentions” is a great way to completely love your wife.
“I just want you to know that I prayed for you today…” And I begin to list the specific things that I pray: Your prayer notes don’t have to be typed out on a typewriter like mine. Often, it’s an automatic response we don’t even think about.
