This has been a challenging season for most marriages. The reasons vary, but the pressure is similar. How can we turn our focus from what troubles us to what blesses us?

Pray. Ask God to give you an idea on how to make your spouse smile today.

One idea I had is to purchase a Christmas ornament that captures how you feel about him/her. Or one that celebrates this past year.

Wrap it up and put it on your spouse’s pillow tonight with an “I love you” note attached.

Life seems so serious. Let’s lighten up our marriages with some unexpected smiles, gifts and laughter.

No one can ease the stress of the day like the one who knows you best and loves you most.

What ideas come to your mind? Let’s start a new focus of blessing and encouragement. Please feel free to comment.

  1. Bob has been wanting me to try pickleball for sometime now. I insisted the odds would be better if I tried it after the heat is gone. Well, the heat left, covid came. Then recovery time. Then Thanksgiving prep. Finally, on Saturday, we went. He is such a good teacher. To my surprise, I really enjoyed it. On Sunday afternoon I asked him if we could go again. He was so happy about that. Tonight we’re playing with a group from the neighborhood.
