We haven’t talked too much about the Top 10 Marriage Blog nomination because the Bible says clearly “let another praise you and not your own mouth.” But we do want to communicate the effect being named on such a list would bring. Our goal in blogging isn’t to make a name for ourselves. We blog because we sincerely want to help strengthen marriages when things are still going well.
Having spent the past few years counseling marriages in serious trouble, we began this blog as a way of helping marriages BEFORE they reached the desperate stage of intense conflict. It is our preventative measure to help you build on the good before the bad does permanent damage.
So, being named as a Top 10 Marriage blog would open the door for us to help more marriages be affected with the good news of the Gospel. Hearing how to make marriage better will infuse hope in even the darkest of places. We know what it’s like to face dark days in your marriage. After 32 years together we’ve experienced most kinds of temptations and conflict. God has helped us in our most difficult years, and He knows what we need before we ask.
We want to help.
We want to share what we’ve learned.
We want to bring hope to all husbands and wives.
And we want to glorify God and His Word by helping marriages reflect Christ’s love for His Church.
So, if you haven’t voted – would you consider voting for our blog? If you voted a while ago, you most likely voted in the first round. Try again, and if this is the case, your vote will go through, and would you consider asking others to vote? We are grateful for you and the way you encourage us to continue sharing our lives with you. But you must know the real reason we do this is because we believe this is God’s will for us at this time in our lives. We pray it is helping your marriage grow stronger and that you are having fun along the way! We most certainly are!!!
Thank you and may you continue to find fresh inspiration in our Romantic Vineyard.

oh, too bad I saw this post just now. I wasn’t able to vote.
We do need to encourage our fellow bretheren as they walk in their marriage. I’m newly married and I appreciate reading marriage blogs. =)
Stopped by from 100Joys.
Thanks for wanting to vote anyway! But we have good news!!! We made the Top 10 List for 2010. Yes, we are surprised, but grateful to God for His continued blessing on our Vineyard. We hope you’ll come back often! Take care, and Merry Christmas!
