Free Love Letters: Why I Love You!

Dear ________ ,

I’ve just been thinking about you, and reminding myself of some of the reasons why I love you:

You are so kind–I can see that you enjoy being nice to people.
Our lives are interwoven together—I can’t even fathom life without you.
You are so hard-working—never afraid to apply yourself to work hard at something…
How integral you are to our ministry together—and to our influence on others around us.
I am addicted to you! I love being with you, around you, beside you, and close to you.
If I had the opportunity to “do it all over again”, I would!


Dear _________ ,

Confession time: you are “without a doubt” my favourite Team member! (Don’t tell the others, but, yes, it’s true!) Watch the dynamics at the Team meetings: when you speak, everyone listens! Me too! In fact, sometimes, I find myself staring—and then I’m mesmerized! I start fantasizing about touching you, kissing you, and squeezing your beautiful… oh!… Just about this time, I get hot and bothered, and try to refocus and come back to earth.What a valuable addition you are to our team!

You’re smart, sensitive, full of integrity, and a body to kill for (in a manner of speaking!). You love the people on our team, you love administration (whoa, now this is scary!), and you are actually irreplaceable!

Free Love Letters: I Love…

I Love…

…telling other couples how much I value our relationship

…the way you smile at the baby

…watching you talk to a friend on the phone, and seeing you laugh and smile

…when you take time to have one of those special “mother-daughter” talks with our little girl, Elizabeth

…telling people that you are very gifted, skillful, talented, industrious, sexy, generous, down to earth, sincere, pretty, thrifty, caring for others, responsible, practical, encouraging, conscientious, simple minded (but not a simpleton, mind you!) tenacious, great at remembering phone numbers, aware of our need to encourage others, sexy (did I say this already?), easy to talk to, approachable, loves being with me…

…doing little jobs around the house that I know you don’t like doing; in this way I know I’m really doing them for you and not for me

…it when you pat the couch beside where you’re sitting, and you say, “Want to sit down?”

…laying in bed in the morning, watching you, waiting until you wake up

…when you read from a book to me in bed at night

…bragging about you to my friends

…watching you read my love letters and notes

…to know you are happy and content

…snuggling up to you, wrapping my arms around you, and whispering, “I love you!” in your ear in the middle of the night…when we go to bed early and just snuggle (that’s right…I said, just snuggle!)

…watching you hold one of the children on your lap while you read a story to them

…hearing you sing while working and hanging out in the house

…the wild evenings followed by warm embraces

…when I can sense you are feeling cherished and valued


We hope these free love letters give you inspiration to write your own!
