Love Language - Acts of Service

Have you figured out your Love Language yet?  Find out by taking the test.  This week Dr. Gary Chapman, author of the 5 Love Languages, has shed light on the languages "quality time", "words of affirmation" and "gifts".  Today Gary tells us about the language "Acts of Service":

Can vacuuming the floors really be an expression of love? Absolutely! Anything you do to ease the burden of responsibilities weighing on an “Acts of Service” person will speak volumes. The words he or she most want to hear: “Let me do that for you.” Laziness, broken commitments, and making more work for them tell speakers of this language their feelings don’t matter.

 Keep listening for your chance to win a copy of Gary's book, plus get qualified to win a grand prize trip for you to attend the Marriage You've Always Wanted conference of your choice!

I love, love, love Gary's books.  (Check out the books for children and for Teens.)  I first read The Five Love Languages after my separation--I wish I knew these things before the divorce. The challenge is showing your partner love in HIS/HER language, when it's not YOUR language.  Words of Affirmation and Quality Time run neck & neck as numbers 1 & 2 for me.  
I just want to comment about Acts of Service.  I struggled with it while I was reading/learning. (I still do, I think.) The things listed that you can do to show your partner love, I keep saying, "But these are the normal things of life. These things would have to get done whether he or I did them." And now that we're living apart, we are BOTH doing them.
Looking back, I believe my not understanding how vacuuming the living room shows my husband that I love him contributed to our problems.

I just started listening to KLOVE not to long ago and I love it! I was intrigued by the 5 love language quiz. I have always known what my husbands love language is, but I had my children (14,12,11 yrs.) take the test and let me tell you, I have learned a ton about my children. My child that I was really having a hard time getting through too, I figured out is most like me and I was getting his love language wrong all these years. I will be changing my approach to him and hopefully this will make our relationship better, Thank you for having these eye and heart opening shows. My children and I now listen every morning while taking my kids to school and on my way to work. God Bless you.

I learned about the 5 Love Languages years ago and it has really made an impact on my life.  The one thing I disagree with is the statement that everyone has a primary language.

In my case, I'm pretty even across the board.  I believe in balance.  My love language of the moment happens to be whatever I haven't received lately.  I don't think that I'm the only person like this.  I guess I just want it all.  Smile  

The trick is giving it all in return.  Marriage can be a lot of work, but the payoff is amazing!

22 years and counting...
