|From the happy Wives Club|
And it occurred to me that I am at a time in my life where my children are growing up, learning how to cope with their own lives, etc and I have a little more (a lot more) time on my hands. So when I saw this I thought, "yes, time to put more concerted effort into my marriage!"
I love blogging and decided there and then to start a blog, which is private, for my use where I am going to start listing and marking all those "marriage moments" that I can remember and that happen as time goes along. I thought it would be a great idea for me to document these moments as there have been so many that I have forgotten (and plan to try remember) and this is also a tool I can use to focus on my marriage more positively and look to make new moments. Afterall, whose marriage does not need all the work and attention it can get? It is a blessing one has to keep trying to fine tune and appreciate.
Col 3 v 23: Whatever may be your task, work at it heartily (from the soul), as [something done] for the Lord and not for men.
My encouragement to you today is twofold, firstly, today, look for a marriage moment and remember it and celebrate it, and secondly, if you don't see one, be the cause of one, a good one! Marriage is a precious and very under-appreciated blessing (I speak loudly to myself here too).
