If you’ve been married for any length of time, you’ve likely observed that you and your husband give and receive love in different ways. Some are more noticeable than others.

Here are some ways you might not realize your husband is showing you love.


ways your husband silently shows love(1)


1. He serves.

A couple of years ago, my husband worked second shift on Valentine’s Day. The time that he was supposed to be home came and went. I got worried. Why wasn’t he home? I called him to make sure he was okay.

“I’m fine,” he said from the other end of the line. “I’m at Walmart buying toilet paper like you asked me to.”

I had completely forgotten.

After a long night’s work, when he would’ve rather been at home, he was wandering the toilet paper aisle. To serve his family. Because sometimes love looks a lot like toilet paper.

2. He sacrifices.

Anna was 14 weeks pregnant with her third child on the night of her eighth wedding anniversary. Not only was she constantly nauseous, but she was also suffering from a tummy bug and a sinus infection. When the time rolled around to get dressed for her planned anniversary dinner out with her husband, Anna just couldn’t do it. She felt too miserable.

Instead of showing disappointment or becoming upset, Anna’s husband graciously replied, “No problem. Can I go out and get you soup from Panera instead?”

Without a flinch, Anna’s husband sacrificed prime rib for takeout soup — because he loved his wife.

In what ways does your husband willingly and joyfully make sacrifices for you?

  1. The title of this made me smile because just yesterday my husband got up two hours early to hand wash my car before we left for church. So yes, “sometimes love looks a lot like toilet paper”… and terry cloth towels!
