Cultivating Our Friendship

We have been away this past weekend at a conference for biblical counseling in Jacksonville, and then a little personal time away in Savannah.  We’ll post “Mark Your Calendar” tomorrow.

For today we thought we’d talk about cultivating a lasting friendship with your spouse.  Think about it…there are no friends who will ever spend the amount of time with you as your spouse.  You will always be together – for better or worse.  How can we make the “better” happen more often?  It’s simple really; Learn to enjoy being together no matter what circumtances you’re facing.

One thing Tom and I like to do is talk about the past remembering places we’ve been or vacations we’ve taken and share what we remember most about that time.  One of us will start by asking, “What do you remember about such and such?”  It’s like we’ve taken a photograph in our mind that immediately comes into focus the moment the location is mentioned.  Being in Savannah this weekend we talked about what moments we’ll recall as the most memorable when we look back on this trip in the years to come.  Conversations like these help us work at making our everyday moments the best they can be. 

So why not talk on your next date night about those shared experiences you’ve had so far.  What do you remember as being some of the best from the photo album of your memory?  We have a lifetime to treasure up these times, and God loves it when we enjoy being together.
