In marriage, all that matters at the end of each day, is your faith in God and your love for each other. What I strive for is the ability to end each and every day with the knowledge that I treated my husband with kindness and respect, and that he knew, without a doubt, that he was loved...
Today I start a 40 day journey toward a better marriage, I hope that some of you will come along on this journey, there is always something that we can learn from each other.

day 3 : love is not selfish

Be devoted to one another in brotherly love; give preference to one another in honor.

—Romans 12:10


Whatever you put your time, energy, and money into will become more important to you. It’s hard to care for something you are not investing in. Along with restraining from negative comments, buy your spouse something that says, “I was thinking of you today.”


Recap from yesterday: other than not saying anything negative, we were to do at least one thing that was unexpected, so I stopped and picked up something that he loves for dinner and a movie that I thought he might like to watch, one that I would never have picked OR watched lol And at the end of the night, I handed him the remote to watch whatever he wanted (I usually put it on Jon and Kate Plus 8 on a Monday night, which thrills him I'm sure lol) After all of that he asked me if I was sick or something, being so nice and all, I'm sure it seemed that way!

Today was a good day, and I am loving these challenges already... Lesson learned today: I take my husband for granted in all the little things, and he is incredibly kind hearted and forgiving...
