The 5 second kiss

If you follow me on twitter {which you really should, I am private, but if you are not a freak, I will approve you: nnb1975} moving on ~ I talked about a message our Pastor and his wife gave this past weekend. You can watch it here. TOTALLY worth it, by the way. Our Pastor and his wife are adorable, they are great friends of ours and we love them.

Anyway, Tamara and Greg spoke about Song of Songs and also the book "The Five Love Languages". I tried to tell Big Daddy there was such a thing, but he did not believe me. FINALLY, I think he does. I can tell you right now that Big Daddy's Love Language is physical touch - which is what 90% of men are. Mine is acts of service {ie: Big Daddy cleaning the kitchen, doing laundry, stuff like that .... is good for him} - following my drift here??




Greg and Tamara also spoke about giving 5 second kisses. This is where it got kinda hysterical. Too often, married couples get into a rut, routine, whathaveyou. It is important to have physical contact and they recommended greeting your spouse with a 5 second kiss -- THAT DOESN'T LEAD TO THE BEDROOM! Now, 5 seconds is a LONG time {not that I counted, but I might have done the 1Mississippi, 2Mississippi in my head}. Big Daddy and I are affectionate, but it's normally just a peck or whatever before leaving the house. SO Sunday afternoon, when I was leaving to go for a bridesmaid fitting, I walked over and put my arm around Big Daddy and gave him a 5 second SMOOCH - which we ended up cracking up laughing. BUT I came home to a clean kitchen. As the week has gone on, I must say - it's been pretty light-hearted in our home. Everyone is in a good mood, things are getting done and it's just an overall JOY to be in my home. For real.

So ladies - when your honey comes home from work today, greet him with a 5 second kiss and ask him how his day went .... and don't forget to watch the message online! It's SO good!

Update on my accident: The gentleman that hit me had a blood alcohol level of .207. The legal limit in Florida is .o8 ~ this guy got out of jail at 5 AM Thursday morning. I went to the doctor this morning and have to get more xrays and an MRI. It's going to be a long road - but like I've told many, it's BETTER THAN THE ALTERNATIVE!

Since you've tweeted about this, LC and I have implemented it. It's AMAZING how much something so small can make such a HUGE difference in the "feel" of our marriage, house, etc...

Can't wait to watch the sermon when he gets home tonight. Thanks so much for posting the link!

I heard about this book several years ago, but never made it a priority to read it. But I just put it on the top of my list! Thanks for the reminder.

And I love the 5 second smooch!

I am so sorry to hear about your accident but so happy that you are okay!

What if I don't have a man to give a 5 second kiss to? What do I do then? Haha!! ;)

We've done the 5 second kiss most of the week and it has been so nice to kinda melt into one another. We are very much looking forward to tomorrow nights sermon. See you there at 7?

I am sorry to hear about your accident. I too have been hit by a drunk driver, only he had no insurance and no license. Its a long road to recovery, and your body will never be the same. Keep praying, put in God's hands and your recovery will be quick. Thanks for your inspirational posts.

I'm so sorry to hear about the accident. I've been in my own little study world the last few days so I haven't had a chance to come comment over here. So glad you are okay. I absolutely hate that drunk drivers hurt other people. It is so sad and unfair. God was definitely with you that night. You're in my thoughts and prayers.

That’s such a cool thing – the 5 sec kiss.

I cant believe that jackass got out of jail already! UGH. I hope you are having a speedy recovery!!
