On my last blog, “Poof! Up-Up-Away,” I posed a challenge to couples to take more time to appreciate each other and to lessen the load on your schedule. If you accepted the challenge, how are you doing?
I’m off to a good start….This weekend my family was able to spend some much needed time with our grandson, Gabriel. Though we could have done a million other things, we put Gabriel as a priority. That was definitely time well spent But that was just the start: I was also able to have coffee with a friend, watch a baseball game with a bunch of friends, eat some ice cream with great people, listen to the Word of God, take a long Sunday nap, and rescue my child from a broken down car. We finished the weekend watching the Honors Flight DVD, appreciating our veterans and remembering the sacrifices of great men along with the great sacrifices of my own family (my husbands an Army veteran). Overall I think it was a very successful weekend!
This week I’m committed to:
Marriage CAN be an adventure! Many of you may believe the longer you're with your spouse, the less adventuresome you become. This doesn't have to hold true if you just take time with your spouse. Keeping your marriage exciting and adventuresome requires effort and planning. Learn to seize moments of time. These moments act as kindling in your relationship. As your marriage receives constant kindling, it will remain ignited, ON FIRE.
