Servin’ It Up Right

by on Sep.02, 2008, under Uncategorized

You know that favorite dish you have? Yea, the one that’s seasoned, cooked, and served just the way you like. Don’t you get so excited and think you could eat every bite of it. It hits the spot and you love it.

Well, it seems we all have a favorite way to have love, attention, and affection served to us too.

This weekend I had the challenge of figuring out my daughter’s taste buds for love and attention. She has been quite disruptive at school and her teacher felt it was driven by her desire for attention, even if it was negative. So, I have come to realize my child needs praise and quality time spent with her.

There’s a book called “The Five Love Languages” that is worth reading if you have a loved one you can’t seem to “serve it up right” to, or maybe, you’ll learn something new about yourself.

Relationships are difficult enough. If we can do anything to shed a little light on them, I say, “serve it up”. All it probably amounts to anyway is a small shift in how we express ourselves to the other person.

Has anyone else read it? What did you think?

    I got that book fro ma Bible study group I used to go to on Fri nights, it is truly a great read for so many stages in life – I guess it IS true, great minds DO think alike!
