How to Fall in Love Again in Four Minutes A Day

(excerpted from this longer post at Ann Voskamp's blog, A Holy Experience)

It only takes four minutes a day to move into a deeper heart place. It only takes four minutes a day to connect in soul intimacy; to breathe in oxygen for the other half of my heart. Don’t, and I too begin to suffocate, the death heave. I wish someone had told me this in the beginning.


Four Fixations
Four times a day think on love.

When I leave the marriage bed…

leave the front door…

when I return to front door….

return to marriage bed.

These are the four critical archways of time in our day. Touch or whisper a sweet nothing when passing through these gate points, and we walk into hours of closeness. Forever love fixates like fresh love.


Four Embraces
Four times a day, wrap up in the life partner. Embrace fully and hold each other’s eyes. That’s all.

Repeat four times daily.

The one flesh breathes best when the skin pores are close; connected.


Four Affirmations
Four times during the day, thank him. For working faithfully to provide, for hanging up his towel, for putting gas in the van, for making this heart skip a wild beat.

Look for the ways to thank him/her and watch how (s)he moves closer.


4 minutes:  4 affirmations,  4 hugs,  4 fixations = Fresh Love
