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
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.
Who doesn’t feel like loving their spouse some days?
Love is a decision, keep deciding to love, the feelings will follow your action.
How is everyone today?
Well, I’m not doing so well, feeling low, got a poor result for my recent Uni assessment, and generally feeling awful.
In spite of all of this I feel loved, by my lovely husband.
No matter how you feel, or how your spouse is feeling, we need to support one another. I know, I know, sometimes it’s hard when their illness goes on and on, when they are unemployed, when they forget to support us, but be supportive regardless of how you feel and it will be returned.
Today I am going to:
• love more
• forgive more
• trust more
• share more
• encourage more
• give more
Marriage = hard work, promises kept, forgiveness, faithfulness, kindness, trust, togetherness, friendship, joy, laughter, tears, endurance, and the knowledge that there is always someone on your side.
When was the last time you had fun together?
When was the last time you laughed together?
When was the last time you did something new together?
Try bowling, dinner, dancing, golf, a walk, mini golf, a picnic, the beach, a night swim, skiing, there must be a thousand things.
Not long ago we went camping for the first time in over 20 years and we had so much fun and the sex was great. Oops did I say that? Well, it was!
Don’t forget to laugh together. I don’t know why, but laughing together (I don’t mean AT each other) bonds you together.
Time to write a wish list of things to do and do it!!
Live, laugh, love.
