You will find from the posts this week that the ingredients of a delightful marriage are found in the simple things of life. Yesterday, I shared with you the delight of walking together. Yesterday morning, my wife and I had a special time on our country road holding hands and sharing with each other. Today, here’s another way to make sure your marriage is a delight.
Delight #2 – Swing Together
I’ve just come in from sitting in our swing on the back porch with Denise. The quiet, the view, the sunset, the chatter, the fun, and it was all found while swinging. Looking back over our married life, we have enjoyed many swings together. Here are a few:
- By the lake at The Wilds (many, many, many times)
- At Harbor Town, Hilton Head
- The porch at Snowbird Inn
- Windover B&B
- On our back deck
- Several parks
- On the beach by the condo in Cherry Grove
You see, often it’s the simple moments that take your breath away, that bring delight. How about looking for a swing and take some time to enjoy the view, talk, embrace, and be thankful for the grace gift of marriage. Enjoy the journey.
Let thy fountain be blessed: and rejoice with the wife of thy youth (Proverbs 5:18).
