LifeOfJoy.meShort and sweet today because it has been a very tiring day. We are having conference at our church this week and had three services today.

Here are a few key things that have helped Mike and I stay together. ;)

  • When we said I do, we determined that there was no “out” clause. {Now, this is not to pass condemnation on to anyone else or to say that there is not occasion for divorce; that’s not what this is about.}
  • We are both stubborn and use that to our benefit. We are too stubborn to give up on each other. ;)
  • We work at our marriage, giving of ourselves to the other.
  • Don’t ever go to bed angry.


My advice to newly weds or those engaged, planning for their marriage:

  • Write down all the things you love about your betrothed because there will be times, all too soon, when you will be upset about things they do and being able to go back and read in your own words, the things you love about your dear one will be a huge help to you.
  • This is your “happily ever after” so remember that and work at it when it seems contrary. Real life creeps in all too soon and sometimes you have to just be intentional and do nice things even when you don’t feel like it.
  • Remember this is the one you love, so treat him like it, even when he doesn’t ‘deserve’ it.

Those are my thoughts for today, so until next time, God bless,

Michele ºÜº
