My good friend Jeanette made me lunch one day and called it "Salad a la Andrea".
It was just salad fixin's and some grilled chicken.
So simple but so yummy.
I will made this for dinner sometimes: lettuce, salad fixin's, grilled chicken, and I'll usually make some falafel, pita and hummus to go along with it. Easy and yummy.
Jeanette at one time also made me mac and cheese with bacon for lunch one day.
It spoke so much love to me.
I went home and cried because I felt so loved.
She made it with so much love, with me in mind.
When does a mama of five ever get a special meal made for her, I ask you?
If you make me food, or bring me food, it speaks so much love to me.
I might even cry.
One of my love languages is "service", so if you "serve" me then I am deeply moved and touched.
I think it's so important to think, to really think about the people in our lives and how we can love them. Jesus teaches us to love one another. Love is not just a feeling or assuming someone knows how we feel. It is action.
What is your love language?
Is it Words of Affirmation, Quality Time, Receiving Gifts, Acts of Service, Physical Touch?

Even though we all react to these languages, some affect us more deeply.
If I am really trying to speak to someone in their love language I will study what they respond to. I find it doesn't take much effort to do this.
With your husband, your children, your family, your friends.
Even people God has put in your life to minister to.
It is so powerful.
And now, I will straighten up my kitchen, so my husband will come home to a clean house, because he likes a clean home and also because his love language is service.
