Time

How you spend your time matters.

This weekend we had the best time going to see Mickey Rooney and just being together, alone, as a couple. As a family we spent time together on Sunday just enjoying one another. I am tired today from lack of sleep, yet I feel great from being "refueled" from this fun weekend. I feel like Darin and I are on a second honeymoon or something, because how we are choosing to spend our time together really is transforming our relationship. Life happens as we all well know, and sometimes our schedules get so busy we feel we don't even know our own names. When you notice this happening, it is time to step back and re-evaluate how you are spending your time. What return are you getting for your investment? Make sure everything in your life is in balance. We should put God first, our husband (or wife) and children second, then the rest of the things in our lives third. We are only on this earth for a short while and how we spend our time really does matter. How will you spend yours?

I totally agree with this. Melvin and I went to Mexico back in March and didn't realize until we had been gone for a couple of days, how much we had been miscommunicating. It is amazing how it just happens. Marriage is work, but it is worth it. If we keep ourselves strong and our relationships with our spouses open, I believe our children and others around us will benefit as well. Great post!!

It is so true, and it is so worth it to keep working at a marriage. After a while it won't seem like work, but a joy since the benefits are mutually beneficial!
