We remember when we used to think people who were celebrating 25 years were old and had been married FOREVER!
We still remember and celebrate the night we met, our first date, our first kiss (at the end of our first date), and too many to mention special days between then and now.
So, for today’s Link Party lead in I’m going to point you to my post…
Here’s are a few things on the list:
3. Look for the fun and the humor, play and laugh more.
5. Compliment each other – privately and publicly.
6. Avoid your spouse’s hot buttons.
You can read the rest of the list here; as well as tips and ideas to
put those ideas into practice.
Every marriage has it’s challenges. Life happens and they come under attack. No matter how hard you and I work to have perfect relationships we don’t live in a bubble. It’s being prepared for the attacks and knowing who to fight them with God’s help.
A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.

Getting God’s Word In, So Our Faith Can Spill Out
