Acts of Service

I'm finally continuing love languages series today with acts of service.  This is a difficult one for me to write about, because acts of service is pretty low on my list.  But I'll give it a shot!

Acts of service are basically any tasks done to help someone else out, whether it be washing the dishes, mowing the lawn, taking out the trash, paying the bills...etc.

You can tell if someone's love language is acts of service because they will be the one always trying to help out.  Because you love others through your own love language.

Keep your eyes open for people in your life who have this love language!  Taking time out of your day to unexpectedly help them out will mean the world to them!

...the key word in that last sentence is "unexpectedly."  If your spouse has to ask you to complete a task for them, it certainly loses its value.  However, if you surprise them, you will make their day!

Even though this love language is not high on my list, I still feel loved when Luke unexpectedly does things for me!  For example, last fall I came home from a 12-hour day of classes in Akron.  I was tired and didn't feel like doing anything.  As I walked into the kitchen, I noticed that Luke had done all the dishes!  Doing the dishes is my least favorite chore, and it seriously made my night that he had done them without being asked.

So what is one task you can surprise someone with today?  I would love to hear your ideas! Especially if this is  your main love language.
