This is the first part of a new series on building a foundation in your marriage. Every marriage goes through ups and downs. There are good times and there are bad times. If we are to weather the storms of difficult times in our marriages, we need a good, solid foundation. That is what this series is about. I want you to have a foundation that will withstand everything and anythind that would threaten it. It will take work but the benefits will be life changing.
If we sat down together and looked at our calendars, what would we see? How do we spend our time? What does our calendar say about our values and our priorities? If someone asked me what are the most important things in my life, I would give the “right” answer: God, spouse, family, work - in that order. Yet, if you looked at my calendar, where I write down everything that I have to do each week, it might tell a different story. What story would your calendar tell? I know for me, if I do not purposely set aside time for Nancy each day, my marriage suffers. I need time with her - both quality time and quantity time. It keeps us connected. It builds our foundation.
Questions: How and when do you set aside time for your marriage?
