“The look of love, is in your eyes…”

What would you do if you could not talk to your spouse?  How would you communicate to them?  There are going to be times in your marriage when you will not be able to communicate with each other verbally.

The better you know your spouse and the better your relationship is, the better you will be at nonverbal communication.  Not only is this important, as all good communication is in a marriage, but the more of your senses that you use in your relationship with your spouse, the more you enhance it.

Personally, my husband and I love using the sign language sign for “I Love You”.  It is simple, can be done with one hand and can be understood from quite a distance away.  For example, when one of us is pulling out of our driveway and the other is standing at the front door or a window, we use that sign like you would wave.  But it means more.  We’ve used that sign across crowded rooms.  We use it so much that our children know it and use it as well.

What about a wink?  There is something exciting about a wink from your spouse. 😉  What about a particular facial expression?  Is there an expression that your spouse makes that fills your heart with love?  Perhaps there is an expression that fills you with laughter?  Let your spouse know about it.  There have been times when my husband and I have been in a heated discussion and the right facial expression lightened the mood and kept the conversation from going down the wrong path.  There have been times when one of us has been stressed and the right expression from the other diffused it.

It is all about how you make each other feel.  So what is your look of love?
