A PIECE OF MY HEART ...married for life!

This week, my husband and I will be celebrating 28 years of marriage. Wow. What an incredible adventure it has been thus far. Two houses, four children, one daughter in law, numerous dogs and never ending memories keep us going! We are like the energizer bunny ... we keep going and going and going.

We have finally arrived at the point in our lives (and our marriage) where people ask us for advice on longevity of marriage. Who would have thought we would have arrived at this point so quickly. But here we are.

So what is the key to live a long
and happy married life?
Keep your love and your faith in God strong!

It takes alot of work to keep the flames of romance burning brightly. Kind words, helpful deeds, a listening ear, the willingness to share, thoughtful gifts, and time together. All of these things are like placing logs on the fire, ever so tenderly, and carefully placing the logs at just the right time and in the right way. Have you ever noticed that a fire requires skillful stoking or it will slowly die?

In order to keep your love for your mate alive and your faith in God strong, you must be attentive, steadfast and willing to keep the fire ablazing.

Is it time to put another log on your fire?
