Constant Love - How to Show it to your Child (and Spouse)?

God taught me SO MUCH, and is still teaching me, since J came along. And the lessons I am learning to implement on a child is also very good for our marriage too :-)

Reproduced from http://www.thestayathomemissionary.com/2010/05/practical-vision-for-young-moms.html. They are not my own words.

C - Constant Love

The first C in the 3 C's is Constant Love. It's what a child truly needs from us as mothers, we all know it.

The Bible says in 1 Corinthians 13:

"If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing."

Visible love is the only love a child can understand. You can't tell a child, I love you, and expect them to believe it if your actions don't back it up. Fill up your days not just with time spent with your children, but time loving and enjoying your children.

Constant Love. Yes, but how?

1. Smile. Really smile at them.

2. Enjoy. Take time to revel in the wonder that is your child. Slow down and be present mentally so that you will remember the moment. Make memories together.
3. Play.
4. Engage and give them your heart.
5. Bake together.
6. Whisper in their ear.
7. Listen to their dreams.
8. Sing and dance.
9. Goof off together.

Do it. Do it today. Go do it right now. I'll join you.
