Enrich Your Marriage
Over the last several years Davis and I have witnesses several marriages implode. Marriages that we thought were solid, friends we had had for years. But behind doors over time things started declining.
This last summer we had a fabulous celebration of 25 years of marriage. We had a great party with friends and family. It was our desire to set before our kids an example of what marriage looks like, to celebrate God’s goodness and faithfulness.
In those 25 years we have, by God’s grace, developed some good habits. We pray together regularly. We have found this to be a valuable investment. I love to hear Davis’ heart during these times. We write each other love notes and leave them for each other to find. I love to come across one of these hand-written notes from Davis. I have several boxes of them from over the years. We also still date each other. We put them on the family calendar so that the kids know we are going out together. It has been a priority for us over the years to have these times for just the two of us. We only lived near family for a couple of years when we had young children and not at all since. God blessed us with inexpensive sitters and friends who helped us get these times to recharge together.
As for interactions and habits that we are still working on, that have not to date been worthy of imitation, there are always areas to work on.
