I'm definitely not the best at marriage nor have I had years upon years of experience; I've learned a few things though while being married to Andrew for 14 years...
| It's not worth it to stay mad |
Life is precious and filled with precious moments - When you start playing the silent treatment and giving the cold shoulder, you're letting a situation steal precious time.
| Stay sexy |
Don't get me wrong, there's a certain level of comfort zone that comes with being married and that's okay. It's part of a joy of being married; however don't let it take over. If your husband has to beg you to shave your legs every time before you have sex, or if he has to beg for some sexy "comfortable clothes" - that should be a "check engine soon" light...just a simple little warning to get back with it.
I mean, come on ladies, we all know when you were dating him that even your worst look was a cute worse look.
| Encourage one another |
It's easy to get in the groove of life and go about your daily business, but I will never forget the day my husband asked me to hold him and tell him he was doing a good job. This was about 1.5 years after we said "I do" and I felt horrible after he said it.
Don't let it get to that point.
Whether its encouraging each other in your job, or being a good spouse or parent- let them know they're doing well.
| Talk |
Late night talks...random phone calls during the day...getting up a little early and having a cup of coffee together...
You can really see a persons heart when communication is there.
Plus, this keeps the friendship aspect alive in the relationship.
It is ok to wait but don't wait while waiting.. go do what you need to do to catch up with your dreams, life still needs to go on.
Do you want God to bless you with the above mentioned items or any other wish of yours, you need to make sure it is his will for it to happen, if it isn't his will, then guess what, it will not happen.
When my baby girl was a wee one, she loved books, I made sure to read to her each and every day and she would coo and talk to the characters in the books, now that she is grown I have been reading to my nieces and they love these bright colorful books. they love looking at other babies, and their own flowering abilities. this book is a short rhyming book and introduces babies to the Love that God has for them. this book also has a cute mirror for baby to see themselves in all while listening to someone who loves them reads about the love of God.
