On Monday I told you about my new boyfriend. How my chance orneriness created a fun exchange between my husband and me. So, let me continue the story.
After the impetuous hand-holding in the car, (yes, I can drive with one hand especially if my boyfriend wants to hold the other) I was delightfully surprised when two days later I had another errand to run and my husband says, “Hey, do you want your boyfriend to come with you and hold your hand?”
I’m sure I looked like a deer in headlights.
Now remember, this man never goes on non-essential errands.
“Well, yes,” I stammered.
The man jumped up from his desk, sat in the passenger seat and we held hands.
That is when it hit me…. This man likes to be my boyfriend. He’s finding the sweet endearment a fun thing. So, I really bought into the whole idea. I started calling him my boyfriend on a regular basis.
“Hey, my boyfriend, you are really cute and I like you a lot.”
Last week in Wal-Mart, we stood together in the checkout lane. Another errand (yeah baby). He bends toward me and spontaneously kisses me right there like we were high school kids in love. We are not bashful about sharing a kiss from time-to-time in public but my man is shy. I don’t ever remember him kissing me while we stood in a line of people, in a store.
I look at him with a smile, he says, “A kiss from your boyfriend.”
Of course all this recent boyfriend talk at home has my teen daughter in a constant state of embarrassment as her old parents carry on this romance. Which of course, just makes me giggle all the more and add to the boyfriend frenzy.
My husband is loving it and so am I.
Here are a few boyfriend hints for you to try.
- Look over at him from across the room and say, “You know, I have a really cute boyfriend.” Smile largely.
- Sunday is the Super Bowl. I will tell you now, my husband LOVES it when I just sit with him, hold his hand, watch the game together, and enjoy it.
- Make some really great tasting “game” food also.
- Slowly deliberately unbutton his shirt. One little button at a time. (preferably out of sight of the teenager *grin)
- Text him at work: I miss you, my boyfriend.
Okay, on Monday I have more to share about the BEST gift we can give to our spouse this February, the month of love. Stop back then.
What are your plans for the Super Bowl? I always anticipate the commercials. How much is a 30 second spot this year????
And have you asked your husband to be your boyfriend? Looking forward to chatting with you today. Be blessed, Lynn

Marching Around Jericho is a spiritual guide. As you read through the pages, powerful and transformative instruction and equipping takes place. We follow Jesus as he leads us around the walls, imparting kingdom truths with each passing, finally arriving at the gates of the walled-off city, our spouse’s unbelieving heart. After the circles in prayer are complete, we arrive fully prepared to command the walls to crumble and be removed, making a way for our spouse to step from the rubble of lies and captivity, into faith and freedom!
