The older I get and the longer I have been married, the more it occurs to me that my marriage is all I really have this side of eternity.
I honestly and truly love my wife and I always enjoy being with her. However, I realize that some of you struggle with your marriage relationship and while I don’t pretend to be an expert on the perfect marriage, I do want to share with three things you can start doing at the beginning of this year so you can end it as your the best of your marriage relationship…
- Pray for your spouse. Know that God wants to see your marriage be a taste of heaven here on earth and prayer is His established means of helping by invitation, according to His will, and checked by His wisdom. (Want to learn more about prayer? Visit my www.prayeristheanswer.org website.)
- Learn your spouse’s Love Language. It doesn’t matter if you think you love them, but it does matter that they know you love them and that is all about how you show it – how you express that and that is a specific “Love Language.” Visit the 5 Love Language page at my website here to learn more.
- Have a point in your day when you always and automatically pause to kiss and say I love you. By setting a specific time or circumstance to kiss, it won’t matter if you feel like it or not, you’ll just do it. Kiss before leaving in the morning or going to sleep or whenever. When my wife and I started dating I somehow got into the habit of every time she got into the car I would close her car door after I first leaned in and gave her a kiss and said I love you. This year we’ll celebrate 15 years of marriage and I can honestly say I still do that even multiple times a day.
