Of course we could have called it a Jigsaw Puzzle Date Night, but that doesn’t sound nearly as much fun, now does it?
Here’s the idea:
- Purchase a puzzle the size you could complete in one evening. This is very important! We bought a 1,000 piece (tiny pieces, I might add) puzzle on our month get-away in October and never finished it. It was sad to put it away having not finished what we started.
- Take one piece out of the box and give it to your spouse the morning of the date. Tell them to bring it to your date that night, for it has special significance.
- After dinner and the kids are in bed lay out all the pieces of the puzzle, make your favorite drinks, put on your favorite music and enjoy a quiet evening of conversation while interlocking pieces. Purpose to talk about all the ways God has pieced all the circumstances in your life to get you where you are today, including how you met and were married. We all have stories of how God has miraculous ordered the events of our lives to accomplish things we would have never imagined.
- Have your spouse put the piece you gave them that morning on the table. Tell them that when he/she finds where it fits, you’ll advance to the next puzzle*…with a twinkle in your eye.
*The next puzzle is made up of two people whom God has joined together as one flesh. Celebrate the way you fit together perfectly by making love. You’ll never think of doing a puzzle together in the same way again!
