“Let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth” (1 John 3:18).
My husband is a Pastor that means he often ministers to other people. He spend hours preparing a sermons, praying for and talking to people. He also sees our marriage as a ministry, he is wise and knows it takes work to have a happy marriage. It is really awesome when he tells me he loves me, it is even nicer when he goes out of his way to show me.
We love date nights and look forward to them. In some seasons of life we go weekly and in some seasons we go once a month, occasionally we will not go for a long stretch if we are really busy at church. Lately we have been going once a week and it really blesses our relationship. It does not matter were we go, what is important is taking the time to connect. In a large family if we did not make this time we could easily lose touch.
There are a lot of needs around us, our children, our church, our family. We NEED to put each other first and find time to love and encourage one another. We really do adore our children but we know that we will be left with each other when they are grown and gone, we want to still be in love.
In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. After all, no one hated his own body, but he feeds and cares for it, just as Christ does the church. Ephesians 5:25
My husband certainly takes care of me, I am so very thankful for him and his love and care for me.
We love having one of the kids snap a picture of us on date night this one is from years ago:)
I love these “one another” scriptures.
• Be devoted and give preference to one another. (Romans 12:10)
• Accept one another. (Romans 15:7)
• Care for one another. (1 Corinthians 12:25)
• Carry each other’s burdens. (Galatians 6:2)
• Forgive one another. (Ephesians 4:32)
• Encourage, build up one another. (1 Thessalonians 5:11)
• Spur one another on to love and good deeds. (Hebrews 10:24)
• Confess your sins to one another. (James 5:16)
• Pray for one another. (James 5:16)
We are going on the ultimate date this week. A few day getaway to Pismo Beach. We go on marriage retreats a couple of times a year with our church and they are a huge blessing! This time we are getting away for his birthday to just refresh and reconnect after a busy season. I am so thankful to my mother-in-love that makes our special getaways possible by taking care of our children.
Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God.
