DAY 2 OF 7

Day Two

Nowhere Else You’d Rather Be

Scripture: Mark 10:8–9

We get our milk from a nearby farm. Although when I say “nearby,” I mean about twenty-five minutes across town. 

These friends of our family milk their cows and then pour the fresh milk into several glass gallon jars marked with “J” for the Jacobsons. All we have to do is drive over there and pick them up. We’ve been getting our milk this way for many years now.

The process is quite simple and, technically, a one-person job. But when I see my husband loading the milk jugs into the truck, if I’m even remotely available, I’ll always offer to come along with him, shouting, “Wait! I’ll come with you!” He’ll shake his head and say, “I bet you’ve got better things to do.” 

But I don’t. 

I’d go anywhere with him. As long as we’re together, that’s where I want to be. 

Does your husband know there’s nowhere you’d rather be than with him? You might want to tell him. Milk run. Road trip. Hardware store. Doesn’t matter! You’re together. 

And as long as you’re together, reach out and touch him! I’m telling you, touch is like magic. Walk by him and give him a loving caress. Rub his shoulders, lean into him, or quietly linger on his arm. Sometimes when in the middle of an unresolved issue or if there’s tension between us, I’ll gently reach for him and this touch alone can thaw the chill. So reach out and touch him. Tell him how much you love the feel of him.

Along the way, remember to invest in your friendship. Find activities you both enjoy and spend time together. Do the kinds of things friends do: talk, laugh, work, and play. 

Share with him your thoughts, your dreams, your struggles, and your aspirations. Never keep anything from him. Maybe other people go through life feeling isolated and alone, but don’t let yourself be one of those people. Seek his counsel and his comfort. Let him know how much you need and appreciate his friendship. And fall in love all over again. 

What is something “extra” you could do to spend time with your husband this week, even if it is just running an errand together?
