Sitting here in the Starbucks in Paducah, Kentucky on vacation while waiting for the mechanics at the Honda dealership to repair Teresa's van, I came across as great blog post by Pastor Perry Noble entitled, "Five Questions Men Should Ask their Wives." I am going to take this list back with me to my parents' house where we are staying and ask Teresa each of these over the next few days. My bet is that I will be surprised by some of her answers and that your wife will surprise you with some of hers, too…! (Hint: Teresa says that scientific studies have shown that the most arousing sound a woman can hear is noise coming from the kitchen when her husband is doing the dishes and that the most arousing aroma any woman can smell is her husband's sweat when he is working on her "honey-do" list…!)
Here is Pastor Perry's list:
- What is the most romantic thing I have ever done for you?
- What is something fun we can do together?
- What is one thing I can do for you this week that relieve stress from your life?
