As time goes on, the beauty of loving our spouse looks different with the changing seasons in life.
As my marriage has progressed over the past 20 years, each season has brought its own joys and struggles.
If I could describe our life with four young kids in the house I would say busy, exhausting, overwhelming and messy.
But I would also say fun, exciting, heartwarming and abundant!
And I wouldn’t trade any of it for anything.
The family is a masterpiece God created in order to teach us how to love one another as He loved us.
It requires looking in the mirror and digging deep into the core of who we are in order to see our desperate need for the power of God to enable us to reflect His image.
Exhaustion and busyness can easily tire us out causing us to lose the desire to pursue love with the same effort we gave when the relationship was new and our vision was easily focused on one another.
I want to share a few vital ways to keep love alive during the busy season of messy floors and interrupted conversations.
