4 Ways to Shower Your Spouse with Kisses
I find it quite ironic to be writing about showering your husband with kisses because this is an area in which I want to improve. Far too often I dismiss his attempts to be affectionate or choose my to-do list over opportunities to kiss him.
If you’re like me, we can choose to work on this together. Would you join me in showering your spouse with kisses?
Here are four ways you can shower your husband with kisses:
- Short, Sweet Pecks. These pecks on the cheek are kisses we often give our husband or maybe even our kids. For my husband, my favorite place to provide him with this sweet peck is on the top of his head. Do you know your husband’s favorite spot for a quick peck? If not, ask, and then be intentional to demonstrate your love quickly throughout different moments you have together in a day.
- Simmering Kisses. These aren’t passionate kisses but more intimate than short kisses. It’s a kiss on the lips that simmers for a few seconds or even minutes. It’s enough of a kiss to show your husband and those around you that you are in love with your spouse. Sometimes, it’s enough of a kiss that it leaves you both simmering for a bit more love later.
- Sexy Kisses. The third type of kiss in marriage is those passionate kisses. The kind of kiss where your bodies become one and your kiss becomes full of passion for each other. These are the types of kisses that in public, we don’t give. For me, sexy kisses are a big clue that the bedroom would be in our future.
- Stashing Kisses. A few years ago I hid Hershey kisses for my husband. I hid them in jacket pockets, shoes, in coffee mugs, in his desk drawer, etc. Places he looks on occasion, but not on a daily basis. With each kiss, I left a little love note. He felt loved, and a smile crept across his face each time he happened upon a kiss. This idea was such a simple idea, but an idea that reiterated my love for him each time he found a kiss. The kisses were not only a sweet reminder of my love for him, but they also created opportunities for me to kiss my husband.
Would you consider being intentional in showering your husband with kisses? As wives, we are called to love our husbands and kisses can be one way we demonstrate our love toward them. Intentionally kissing our husbands fuels their love tank. When their love tank is full, we both win.
