I love the highs of marriage. I love the days when we are connected and our love grows. I love having fun together and really enjoying each other. I love it when we have things that we celebrate together. I don’t think that I am alone in that. All of us love the highs.
Here is my take on all of the above. I believe there are highs throughout every marriage, but I think for some reason we don’t always embrace them together. We forget to celebrate and embrace them. Sometimes that happens after we have been in a valley. We come out and survive but maybe we lost something in the process. Sometimes we just drifted apart and have lost some of our passion for the highs.
Think back to a time in your marriage that you really did a great job of making the most of your highs together. What was different then? What gets in the way of getting back to that type of celebration? I believe that God is there every day of your marriage. He is there in the highs and in the lows. He makes the highs higher and the lows much easier to walk through. If we really stop and think about it, there is something to celebrate every day - even in the valleys. If it is just the fact that we have a God who loves us unconditionally, isn’t that something to celebrate?
Here is what I want you to take away from this blog. There are highs in marriage. When they come, do not miss embracing and celebrating them together. In the other times of marriage, when we don’t see or feel a high to celebrate, go back to the basics. Experience the joy of knowing a God who loves you both and is always with you.
