Date Night is a new series that will post on Thursday of each week.  We want to encourage you to invest in your marriage with deep and meaningful conversations just like you did when you were dating.

Unfortunately for many married couples, once they say “I do,” they stop pursuing one another.  It is very easy to quit going on dates, to stop discovering new things about one another, and forget that life together is an adventure.

There isn’t anything magical about the questions that we will offer each week.  The real magic happens when two people take the time to invest in one another.  Whether you use these questions or some discussion starters of your own, we hope that you will once again find the wonder of getting to know each other and using these conversations to shape your future together.

GOD IS GOOD AND HE IS GOOD TO ME, AND YOU

Every good thing given ad every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shifting shadows.

– James 1:17 (NASB)

Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good, for His lovingkindness is everlasting.

– Psalms 136:1 (NASB)

I cannot think of a better way to end our thoughts on gratitude, than to talk about the goodness of God.  The notion that God is good, and that He is good to us, His creation, is a common thread in both the Old Testament and the New Testament. Continue reading

I LOVE MY UTILITY BILLS

I have to admit it, I am spoiled.  Spoiled to all of the modern amenities that I enjoy every day.  I also must admit, that I take many of those things for granted.  Well, that is not completely right, it is more accurate to say that I speak with contempt about those things that I should be more thankful for.
