Keeping Love Alive


Walk with Him  at Ann Voskamp's
I am joining  with Ann Voskamp eachWednesday   to  begin to develop  better spiritual practices.
 This week   Ann posted this:

The 4 Minute Marriage Habit to Fall in Love Again:
4 Focuses + 4 Embraces + 4 affirmations = Falling in love all over again
You  must   visit  her  blog  to   read  what this is all about, and  you will  so be glad you did!
  trying to recapture the romance ....   that  wonderful feeling  and  deep connection  that   you  had  in the beginning....  like   dating in High School  when  he took me to the  senior   Sadie Hawkins Dance...   and  you w ere  suspecting even then that he was the ONE

The   unbelievable excitement  you  felt  on your wedding day  four years  later  after  waiting   through college  and   for him to return from  the military  in 1972... so thankful he didnt see wartime in  Viet Nam...  but  that  explosion of   excitement  as  you  become one  with him  and were willing to travel with him to the ends of the  earth!





The  joy of seeing   him with  our  one and only  precious!
and before you can turn around  she is  married and about to leave the nest....

 and  worse by far  watching her leave  with her  husband.....    to move to another state  hundreds of miles away....

and  there  you a re  just the two of you again.....  time to redefine  your household in many ways... and your relationship..

now 40 years together ...  years of    faith through plenty and loss...   better and worse,,,  sickness and health...
easy to  take one another for granted...  easy to become   too self seeking....  easy to  just  fail to remember.....

Ann's  habits to keep love alive a re so  crucial  and  I  vow to   put them into practice
