Together in 2011

The first week of 2011 has come and gone. Hopefully you are well on your way to being adjusted to the new schedule with school and work.

Many of you have taken the time to write down your goals for the new year. kudos! What about goals for your marriage? A good marriage isn't just happened upon, it is something that is worked at and nurtured. If you want a great date idea for January, take the time to sit down together and write out some goals for the two of you in 2011.
My husband and I are going out of town (on a Friday - Monday) in January to set our goals for the new year. We will spend a great deal of time talking together about our couples goals. Here are some I'm thinking of:

1) Go out on two dates per month together.

2) Pray together at least once per week.

3) Take communion together once per week.

4) Read our Bible study book together once per week.

5) Get away together (without the kids) twice this year.

These are just examples of goals you can set for your marriage. Be creative and let God lead you as you plan for a prosperous 2011.

Ecclesiastes 5:7a TLB "Dreaming instead of doing is foolishness."

these are all great ideas Sonya - i wish that my husband and I had been able to do more together when our kids were small, but we didn't live near family and had NO money to do anything, much less get a babysitter.

this is good advice for young married couples just getting started!
