Has the fire of romance waned over the years?
Have children or work or busy schedules come between you and your marriage relationship?
Sometimes we are so prone to keep wishing for what we don’t have that we forget what we do have, and . . . sometimes what we long for is right in front of us.
Here’s an idea to help you. Make sure the children are in bed at a set time. Husband, you order a personal pan pizza from the shop nearby and be ready to go get it or have it delivered. Wife, get out your best china and crystal glasses. If you don’t have these, then the best tableware and glasses will do. Don’t go cheap with paper plates and paper napkins. Create a mood, an atmosphere that says, “This matters.”
Set a time to meet in the bedroom. No TV, no phones and notifications, no internet, no children. Add candlelight, romantic music, a small table with cloth napkins and each other. Be ready when hubs arrives home with the pizza or is delivered.
Go back to the days when you were dating when you just loved to hear each other breathe!!
As you enjoy your pizza, . . .
- Share five reasons why you love each other.
- Share one way to improve your marriage . . . without “finger pointing.”
Once you have finished your pizza and discussion, then watch a movie. Just enjoy each other’s company!
One more thing, it’ll be okay to leave the dishes until morning!
Stir the embers!!
15 Drink water from your own cistern,
And running water from your own well.
16 Should your fountains be dispersed abroad,
Streams of water in the streets?
17 Let them be only your own,
And not for strangers with you.
18 Let your fountain be blessed,
And rejoice with the wife of your youth. (Proverbs 5:15-18)
