The marriage journey can be one fraught with rocky roads, speed bumps, breakdowns, steep hills, unseen dangers. The way to finish well, is to keep a clear head, watch for the signs and stay till the end. ~ The Marriage Files
. Forgive AND forget
. Have faith AND hope
. Give love AND do it without exception
. Be who you are AND not who you think you should be
. Give AND receive
. Be the same at home AND everywhere you go
. Give more AND ask for less
. Be grateful AND gracious
. Be kind AND merciful
. Ask AND it will be given to you; seek AND you will find; knock AND the door will be opened to you. Matt 7:7
What treasures do you hold in your heart?
There are so many things we all desire, a happy marriage, great children, personal safety, a home, plenty of food on our plates, financial security, and probably a long list of other things.
Seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. (Matt 6:33)
Even if you’re not a Christian, you can apply this in a different way, seek first the things that are right and genuine joy, will be your life.
. seek love
. seek joy
. seek friendship
. seek to help others
. seek to serve your family and those you love
. seek things beyond yourself
I’m not saying you shouldn’t be satisfied with what you already have, we should all be content in that matter, but there is always more we can do for that kind of joy, that doesn’t come from having a lot of things, but loving people more.
How are you going financially? We find it tough, sometimes we argue about what is important, but we forgive, then we find agreement.
Money is one of the BIG ones especially in these trying times. So many people are doing it tough, and it causes huge stress in marriages.
I’m certainly no expert in finance, but if this brings trouble in your marriage, you need to set goals, have a budget and I think it’s important to include a few dollars for something fun.
Have a blessed, loving day. ❤
I had a bit of a bad morning on Saturday.
Feeling really low, I even cried. When my husband saw me in tears he held me in his arms, speaking words of encouragement and love, then took me out to lunch.
He is so precious, and treats me so well, I always feel loved and blessed by this man. I only hope I return the same kind of love to him.
I hope each and everyone of you feels safe, encouraged, beautiful, blessed, but most of all LOVED.
How is your marriage?
Are you having fun?
Is it a drag?
Time for a change?
No, not a change of spouse, a change of attitude.
❤ Love a little more.
❤ Praise a little more.
❤ Give a little more.
❤ Do a little more.
Change comes from the little things, small gestures of love, kindness, consideration.
