Coffee and intentional conversation with my husband. We want to encourage you about something today. It’s hard, we know and understand, to set aside time for just talking and catching up with each other. We’re guilty of being so busy and missing these special moments together. It is so very important and vital to our relationship and marriage. Here are some unspoken rules we have during these times:
*Never look at our phones for emails, social media, texts, etc.
*We never take or make any calls during these times.
*The only exception to the previous two rules is sending/receiving texts and/or calls from our babysitter or girls.
*Talk about us and try to learn new things about each other, (a great springboard for conversation is to reminisce
about our dating years).
Channing and I have noticed couples out where one or both are on their phones…obviously scrolling through some sort of newsfeed. This is so sad! I encourage you, when you’re with your spouse and/or family, to leave the phone down…or better yet, turn it off.
We just wanted to encourage and share with you some things on our hearts. We haven’t always gotten it right…and occasionally we have to call “time-outs” to reevaluate our time and priorities. The important thing is to keep going, keep trying and keep working at it.
Most importantly, during these special times of conversation, the key is to have fun! Stay engaged in the moment…enjoy each other, laugh, flirt and dream together.
We are praying for you!!!
