The shower this weekend was a HUGE success. Very fun. The Bride-to-be was stunning and her house is going to be OVERFLOWING. It was an intense four hour long present opening time. She got some GREAT stuff.
All these weddings have got me to thinking about the unions of these young couples, of my marriage, and of the sacred covenant of marriage in general. Matt and I will be celebrating our fifth year of marriage this year and they have been the happiest years of my life.
If you had ONE word of wisdom or bit of advice, WHAT would you say the most important thing you can do to strengthen your marriage would be?
To answer my own question, I would probably say that you should always build your spouse up. Compliment him, make time and show genuine interest in the things he does, thank him for the things he does. Build him up. Make him feel good about himself.
Of course, the Bible also says to not the sun go down on your anger. That is an important one too. Forgiveness. Not holding on to bitterness, rage, or anger.
What do you think?
