It’s Back-to-School week in most areas. A time when parents can kick back into a more established routine. There are tests to study for and lunches to be packed. It’s all part of the rhythm of the school year.
Our marriage has a rhythm too. And each couple makes their own music. What works for you may not be appealing to us at all, but that’s ok. Our marriages tell the story of us.
We love to reflect on our years together. Questions lead to memories we’ve collected and help us give value to our history.
Maybe it’s time for a marriage history quiz?
Spend some time writing out questions to quiz each other about your marriage history. Span the years you’ve shared—the good, the difficult and the hilarious times—and try to stump each other. Of course, there can be bonus points earned to make up for missed answers. This can make the missed questions worth it. 😉
The idea is to slow down and remember. Maybe the memories will help you embrace the present struggles for the testimony being forged through the fire. Our history is worth it!
Let the quiz begin!
So much has happened through the years,
December to December,
laughter, anger, joyous tears,
and I do not remember.
It’s all been washed away by pain,
and burned in fevered flames;
few old friends do now remain,
and I can’t say their names.
They walk away, sadly bowed heads
to what appears a silent grave,
and I pray that God will take their threads,
weave once again to save
the precious warp, the careworn weft,
that they are to Rock of Ages cleft
