A Season of Creating a Love That Last

The holiday season can be a tough time for some men. We have to walk through the mall with our spouse for longs hours. We sit and wait while they’re trying on clothes. Although this can be a difficult moment for men during the holiday season, it can easily be a time where men can truly show how much they love their spouse. Help her to make a list of the places she wants to go. This will allow the both of you to have an idea of how your time will be spent. Decide on a special place to eat after all the shopping is done. Having something to look forward to once all the shopping is done is a sure way to spice up the evening. Lastly, men should be ready to give their wives a surprise foot massage when they’re trying on shoes. This just might be a way for the evening to be cut short, so you two can have some “fellowship time” as you make your way home.

One of the best things to do with your spouse is to act like kids at least one time during the holiday season. Get a sled and go to the park together to enjoy the snow. This creates oneness, releases stress, and allows couples to try something different during Christmas. Please remember to take the kids first before you steal their sled for the day. Go ahead and make a “snow angel” or two when you’re out for the evening.

There is nothing better than to serve with your spouse at a shelter, shovel snow for the elderly, or take gifts to those in need. One of the finest memories of me and my wife was when we were on our first date together. We both served food for those in need during a Christmas event.  She later told me that date really made her like me even more.

Shopping for a Christmas tree together can be a wonderful experience. Pick a Saturday morning to have breakfast together and to buy a tree. There is nothing more fun than decorating the tree that night while playing Christmas music.
