November 2017 Couples’ Corner

A man came home from work the other day to find the following note lying on the kitchen counter:         

“Hi Honey!  Welcome home!  I am hiding somewhere in the house and I am armed with a “Nerf gun” just like the one lying here on the counter.  Loser cooks dinner!  Good luck!!”

I was impressed by the novel approach the wife took to putting some fun back into her marriage.  We too often forget that being married is supposed to be an enjoyable experience.  We let the world and all of its madness get in the way, work, bills, kids, family, and sometimes even church. We look back on our lives and wonder where all the fun has gone.  We use to have such good times when we were dating.  We could talk for hours and laugh ourselves silly. Maybe that is why the word tells us in Proverbs to remember the wife of our youth. Think back to that girl you fell in love with. What did you do together, where did you go.  Did you ever have a tickle fight?  The Bible says that a merry heart doeth good like a medicine.  That scripture holds great truth not just in our everyday life, but in our marriages as well.  So take today and make a change.  Put fun back in your life and your marriage.  Have a pillow fight, sing your spouse a love song, even if you can’t sing, go ride a roller coaster, spray someone with the garden hose. Use your imagination!

Come join us at our “couples meetings” for some new ideas!
