It is the last week of our “Be my Valentine Marriage Challenge” with Courtney from WomenLivingWell.org. I don’t know about you but I have been having a steamy, dreamy time! What a blessing.
Week 4 Challenge – Valentine’s Day
(If you want to see what Courtney is up to, visit http://www.womenlivingwell.org).
If you’ve been keeping up with me via the blog, you’ll know that my SAMM has been travelling quite extensively for work since mid January. It has been difficult at times but it has also created new opportunities for us to connect and love when we do have time together.
This week has been a tough one for me. The hectic pace of flight schedules, long days and separation has left me a little deflated. But then there is tomorrow…. and I can’t wait! Firstly because my SAMM is on his way back home tomorrow afternoon and secondly, because I have been stewing, scheming and planning for tomorrow.
Unfortunately I am going to have to leave you hanging and guessing because I don’t want to give anything away! What are your plans for tomorrow? I hope that you will be encourage to do something out of the ordinary, to be lavish with your love, affection and praise and that you would be blessed within your marriage! How glorious that we get to celebrate our marriages tomorrow ladies!!
Celebrate & commemorate
“ ‘As the man to be married finds joy in his bride, so your God will find joy in you.” Isaiah 62:5 NLT
Remember when you got married? Remember how we loved, kissed and spoke only good of our men? Remember how we delighted in and found joy in our men? Let’s go there tomorrow. It is a day of love and if you are married, you are in a wonderful place to give and receive love – so let’s do that!
Thank you Jesus for love!
I realise that there are times and situations that make it near impossible to connect with a spouse in an intimate manner or that we might feel unloved and unappreciated.. I honestly believe that God can rekindle the flame / passion that was. I firmly believe that He can heal the hurt and restore the broken relationships. If you are in an unhappy, hurting place I want to encourage you to pursue Jesus and ask Him to restore the intimacy to your relationship. If you don’t have your own words, here’s a beautiful prayer from Unveiled Wife.
