My wife and I just returned from an 11-day Caribbean cruise. This vacation was a gift to ourselves to celebrate our upcoming 25th anniversary. We had a desire to splurge and do something special, and we are glad we did; we enjoyed the trip immensely.
While most marriages would benefit from something as extravagant as a special vacation, the more important parts of a marriage are the smaller things that you do for each other on a daily basis. Cooking a meal for your spouse, doing the laundry, washing the dishes, taking out the trash, washing the car and other little things you do for one another are the actions of love that keep a marriage going strong.
If you have a chance to do something big and exciting with your spouse, I say go for it! But we always have opportunities to express our love for one another in various smaller ways.
To all you married couples, may you greatly enjoy your voyage through life together!
“…Love one another deeply, from the heart.”—1 Peter 1:22.
