Husband, wife always compliment each other
Nick and his wife, Nikki, were deeply in love. The couple rarely disagreed on major or minor issues, because they were constantly saying nice things about each other. “You’re the most handsome husband in the world, Nick,” grinned Nikki. “No, I’m not,” Nick blushed. “But you, Sweetheart, are the world’s most beautiful woman. You always will be.” “You’re always saying that,” Nikki replied. “And I do appreciate the thought. But right now, I would much rather say something nice about you. Like how you’re always volunteering to wash the dishes after we eat a meal.” “It’s really no big deal,” Nick protested. “After all, we do have a dishwasher, you know.” “I know,” Nikki grinned, “but it’s the fact that you want to do it for me.” “I love doing things to please you,” said Nick. “When you’re happy, I’m happy.” “I know that, Nick,” said Nikki. ”That’s one of the things I love the most about you….the fact that you’re always going out of your way to please me.” “Two of my favorite things in the world are saying nice things about you and doing nice things for you,” said Nick. Nick told Nikki that she was the world’s best cook. “Your baked spaghetti melts in my mouth,” he gushed. “And your barbecue chicken is out of this world.” “That’s because I got it from one of the extra-terrestrial menu channels,” Nikki grinned. “By the way, Nick, have I told you today that I love you?” “Not in the last five minutes,” Nick joked with a frown. “Well, I do love you dearly, Sweetheart,” Nikki said. “You are the love of my life, and I’m so glad I married you. Like I said a couple of minutes ago, you’re the most handsome husband in the world.” “You’re beautiful, and you’re a great cook,” Nick marveled. “But you also have a fantastic voice, and I love to hear you singing Christian songs.” “I love to honor and glorify Jesus Christ with my voice,” Nikki admitted. “He is such an awesome God. Just think of His awesomeness. He created the world out of nothing. He came into the world born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, performed miracles, died on the Cross, was buried and was resurrected. He now sits at the Father’s right hand, where He is praying for us.” “And He used His awesomeness to bring the two of us together,” Nick observed. “He helps us to have a wonderful relationship with each other, and that’s the greatest thing in the world.” “No,” Nikki corrected her husband. “I agree that our relationship with each other is a great thing. But our relationship with Jesus is the greatest thing in the world.” “As usual, Dear, you’re right,” Nick said. “That’s something else I love about you. You are right all of the time!” To contact the writer of this column about speaking engagements and/or puppet ministry, please email [email protected].
