Marriage Devotional

Marriage is something I have never blogged about however in my home its very important. A marriage is something that must be treated like gold, it needs to be polished so it doesn't get dusty! A few weeks ago my marriage had a bump in the road, however we are alright because God can do many wonderful things, It makes you question and wonder about "things" no matter how minor or severe the bump is. So with that in mind my husband and I have had a lot of long talks and lots of just us time and its been wonderful, I think God knows just everything he does works out wonderfully if you allow him to work threw you in that! A marriage gets so wrapped around daily life you just stop pampering the marriage. Your tired from work, kids, chores and so many other things that when you finally get time together your tired, cranky and not fun or caring!

My husband asked if there was a devotional we could do together for our marriage and relationship and I responded with "wow I don't know but I will find one", so my search started that day because I was so happy he wanted to do something to this nature, we have never done anything like this before however we have a very loving and talkative relationship.So after a few days of looking and searching and praying over what I wanted out of a couples devotional I decided on "The Love Dare Day By Day - A year of devotionals for couples". My husband and I watched the movie "Fire Proof" a few years ago and I remembered The Love Dare from that movie, so once I started talking to Kevin about this,  he done something so sweet. 2 days later a new Netflix movie arrived - Guess what it was... Fire Proof. I thought it was so thoughtful, so we watched the movie to refresh ourselves about the topic and the book and I have to say its a wonderful movie, weather you have a wonderful marriage or one that needs work. You should gather your spouse and watch it!

So yesterday I got my package with our new book and inside it was a few questions I wanted to share with you all. Just in case you want to talk to your spouse about some things, these are some wonderful questions just to understand their heart and mind. Remember to listen more than you talk, there is no wrong or right answer either!! Stay positive and happy because this is just for fun between you and your soul mate!

This set of questions are Personal Questions, I will post Marital Questions soon...

  • What is your greatest hope or dream?
  • What do you enjoy the most about your life right now?
  • What do you enjoy least about your life right now?
  • What would your dream job be if you could do anything and get paid for it?
  • What are some things you've always wanted to do but haven't had the opportunity yet?
  • What three things would you like to do before a year passes?
  • Who do you feel the most "safe" being with? Why?
  • If you could have lunch with anyone in the world, who would it be and why?
  • When was the last time you felt filled with joy?
  • If you had to give away a million dollars, who would you give it to?

My husband and I had a lot of fun with these! He has started coming home from Clinical every week instead of staying in the motel and it has really delighted my heart! I love my husband and God wants me to love him. My husband is wonderful, our marriage has always been everything I wanted... However nothing is perfect there will always be bumps in the road because we are of the world!

Have fun with these questions, I will post more soon!!

My husband also has been so thoughtful and the last 2 weeks on his way home Tuesday night has brought me gorgeous flowers... Tulips my favorite!!
