I Love You - Just Say It

Recently, a pastor was with a women’s congregation and he made these requests of them:

Pastor (question): Can those with husbands raise their hands?
Ladies: (They all raised their hands)
Pastor (question): How many of you love your husbands?
Ladies: (They all raised their hands)
Pastor (question): Are you sure ladies, before God? Can I prophesy?
Ladies: Yes!!!
Pastor (question): When did you last tell your husbands that “you love him?”
Ladies: (Various answers but some of them said) – “today when leaving the house”, “last night”, “when we went to bed”, “This morning when I woke up”, etc..etc…
Pastor: Each one of you should send a message of “I love you” to your husband right now.
Ladies: They all sent the text message “I love you” to their hubbies
Pastor: Now exchange your phones please
(ladies all exchange their phones)
Pastor: Read out loud the replies from your husbands please.

Below are the replies to the messages from their various husbands:
  1.   Is this message lost???
22.  Aaaah who is this??? Sorry wrong number please
  3.  Am I dreaming??
  4.  What is the matter!!??
  5.  What exactly do you mean??!!
  6.   You need money again abi???!!? (lol, classic response)
  7.   Hey! Did you smash my car??!!!
  8.   The message should be sent back to the intended owner!!!!
  9.    To hell jor!!!!!!!!!
 10.   I will beat you to death today until you tell me who the message was intended for!!!!
        (Joke source: BBM broadcast/Unknown lol)

..So when last did you tell your spouse “I love you” and how often do you it?
Please don’t let the words “I love you” become extinct in your marriage or don’t save it for ‘special occasions’.. There’s something reassuring about saying it again and again.. (for both you and your spouse)
You can try it out right now J
