I decided to challenge myself a little bit this summer, as well as maybe adding a little spark back into our marriage.
Over the past year, we've just been so disconnected. My Marine has been so busy with work, training a unit before they left for Iraq, traveling to conferences, classes, weekend missions and the list goes on. I feel like we've been two ships passing in the night - occasionally meeting for a port call. We've graduated to communicating through texts, emails and voice mails. When he gets home, he focuses on time with the kids. And when we are finally alone at night, I'm usually heading up to bed because I'm so freakin' tired.
So, when I saw this challenge over at the "Women Living Well" blog, I knew that this was a sign from God to step it up and do something about it.
Here's the Topic Schedule for those who want to link up each week:
June 7 - Announce to your readers you are participating by posting the button on your site and leaving your link below.
June 14 – Post Pictures from your dating days (or tell us all about it!). Think about one thing you used to do or have as a couple that you have lost in the shuffle of life. How can you regain it?
June 21 - Remember Your Vows - post pictures of your wedding day. We will review the sacredness of this day.
June 28 - Ask your husband every morning how you can pray for him that day. Bonus: Fast and pray for him one day this week.
July 5 - Admire Your Husband. Write this post and then show it to him! He will smile!
July 12 - Make a list of 5 things you currently do and ask him to prioritize them for you of what is important to him. For example - a clean home, home cooked dinner, coupon clipping, service at church, having friends over for dinner, watching/doing sports with him, etc.
July 19 - Make him a priority. Ask him what his favorite dinner, dessert and drink are. Be sure to serve him all three one night this week. Bonus: cook his favorite dishes all week long!
July 26 - Support his vision. Discuss his vision for your family. Where does he see your family in 1 year, 5 years, and 10 years. Share with us how you let your husband lead.
August 2 - R-E-S-P-E-C-T! No complaining, criticizing, rolling your eyes, nagging, or giving him any friction this week. Enjoy a week of peace in your home!
August 9 - Kiss Him Like You Mean It (and be sure the door is locked!)
So stay tuned to see how it's going! If you want to participate, head over to the Women Living Well blog and sign up!
