Heather Marshall on March 2nd, 2009

February was the “Month of Love,” right? There’s Valentine’s Day, and of course…. my engagement day was in February as well! My pastor did a series this month on marriage… we had a “Fireproof” outreach the other evening….  Stores go nuts for Valentine’s day related love … Hallmark cards are splashed in red as they all proclaim undying love for your spouse, lover, or special friend.

Well, after reading “The Five Love Languages” by Gary Chapman, I’ve been in tune to recognizing Love Languages in people (even in movies I try to pick them out)….  and I realized that Hallmark has discovered them as well.

A few weeks ago, I was shopping for a Valentine’s Day card for my wonderful husband and I began to laugh at how each Love Language is expressed in each card!  To prove my point, I slyly pulled out my cell phone & began taking pictures of the cards that I read. I must have looked very silly to passersby, but…. hey, it’s all in the name of being a Striving Wife!! (sort of) :)

So… here’s what I found…

Hallmark’s Version of the Five Love Languages:

Quality Time:

Physical Touch:

Acts of Service:

Receiving Gifts:

And, my personal favorite, Words of Affirmation:

So you see, if even Hallmark targets those Love Languages, they’ve GOT to be important!! :) Make sure you’re working on finding out your husband’s Love Language… and then start speaking LOVE to him!!

Keep on Striving,

Heather :)

PS - Hope you enjoyed a slightly different post than usual… afterall, a picture (or 5 of them, in this case) is worth a thousand words! :)
