Luv Is a Verb

February 27, 2013

ImageLots of people enjoy taking potshots at Ben Affleck for the acting roles he takes, but if his Oscar speech is any indication the man’s got it right when it comes to the role of husband.

During last Sunday’s Academy Awards, Ben Affleck thanked his wife, Jennifer Garner, in an emotional Best Picture acceptance speech that left viewers divided on the state of their marriage. “I want to thank you for working on our marriage for ten Christmases,” he said, “It’s good. It is work, but it’s the best kind of work. And there’s no one I’d rather work with.”

 

Relevantmagazine.com shares a great article, using Affleck’s remarks as a springboard, to talk about love, particularly in marriages, and why it can be quite difficult and challenging at times.  

For the longest time I’ve subscribed to the notion of heart-fluttering, wonderful, Moulin Rouge! type love.  But God, through Scripture and life experience, has taught me there’s so much more to that.

Talking to your loved one when you’d rather go fishing; listening to his excitement over a new piece of technology though you have no clue what he’s talking about; taking the kids to the park instead of watching the Super Bowl.

I also talk about it in the For the Week of Heart series I posted on Valentine’s Day.
