New Year’s Resolutions.
Have you made any this year? Most people do.
To lose weight… Eat right… Excercise… Give up Facebook…
…Something healthy, either mentally, or physically, for themselves.
But have you ever thought about making a resolution for your marriage?
As I think what my own marriage needs more of, and what most American marriages probably need more of, it’s margin. More white space on the calendar. More time to just be, instead of doing so much.
My husband and I are sometimes overextended and overscheduled, and what usually gets the short end of the stick is quality time together. We put date nights on the back burner. When a free Friday night rolls around, we usually order pizza, put the kids to bed and I usually fall asleep halfway through a Netflix movie. Weeknights aren’t much better: we plop down on the couch after 8, exhausted from the day, zone out on our smartphones for a while and watch something on the DVR.
Do you ever wonder how our lives get so busy that we neglect what matters? Do you wish that things can be different? God’s Word says that we can!
