This simple exercise of sharing just 3 things has changed our marriage… for the better.
My husband and I don’t make a big to do about Valentine’s Day. In fact most years you can find us in our lounge clothes vegging out on the couch. We don’t need a “special” day to show each other how much we love each other. We do that naturally every single day.
Sometimes, though, we really have to make an effort. Loving someone with real and selfless intimacy takes work. Getting to know each other doesn’t stop after we say “I Do.”
Continuing to pursue our husbands, and they us, means really humbling ourselves and asking hard questions. Sometimes we are put on the spot as well.
That happened to me recently. I was humbled while sitting in the hot seat. While it was a hard conversation, it was of great importance too.
Today I’m sharing a little bit of that conversation on Intentional By Grace.
Here’s a little snippet:
The conversation didn’t go as expected. In fact, I was totally caught off guard.
During our weekly meeting, my husband and I were sitting down going over our calendars and talking about our family. At the end of our meeting we always open it up to share any concerns or questions we might be having. This is when we work through any conflicts or share about events that didn’t go quite as expected.
Sometimes it’s a hard conversation where we have to call out sin in one another. Other times it’s more lighthearted where we share dreams, goals and visions for our family.
That day was a day that caught me off guard… for a good reason.
