I’m about to relish the last day of our annual trip… just me and my sweetheart. ❤️❤️❤️ Every year we try to get away without the children for a little honeymoon. What started about 10 years ago as a weekend, has grown by weeks. I can’t tell you how much it does for us!
Our only “rules” are that we pray daily to have fun and laugh and love. Work is put on hold, but we still have time for keeping up with kids, clearing out email as needed, reading and sometimes watching a movie. Together is the theme; remembering to notice what makes the other one smile is a goal.
It takes practice -being friends and staying married. For us, uninterrupted time together has been key. Whenever we have asked God to help us get away He has. Whenever we have asked Him for help drawing us closer and having fun in the midst – He has.
I remember long days in the hospital for several years, when David couldn’t take a break because of surgeries… even then, God answered our prayers with some small joy and a deeper love for each other.
Our Father is for marriage! He’s a big ‘ol Romantic and a bigger sucker for a happy ending than I am (if it’s ok to call Him that). I love Him to pieces for it! I couldn’t imagine trying marriage without His divine assistance 😉
The lessons offered in the letters in Revelation are really helpful for marriage. God is serious about 1st Love!
“But you walked away from your first love—why? What’s going on with you, anyway? Do you have any idea how far you’ve fallen? … “Turn back! Recover your dear early love. No time to waste….” Revelation 2:4 The Message
