Discuss Priorities

September 13, 2010

in the generous life

I encourage y’all to spend some time praying and talking about priorities with your husband. What things are important to each of you individually? As a couple? What kind of practical ways can you build those important things into your lives? Think outside the box and look for creative ways of planning and doing what is important. Don’t be afraid to mark plans on your calendar. Be willing to let go of good things for better things.

Many people fail in life, not for lack of ability or brains or even courage, but simply because they have never organized their energies around a goal.  Elbert Hubbard

Keeping in touch with each other’s wants and needs is vital. Whether you’re married for one day or fifty years, communicating with your spouse is the only way to express your needs and wants effectively. A successful marriage is one in which both parties clearly understand one another.

One way to keep in touch with one another is by making it a point to coordinate your agenda books. At least once every week or so, sit down and write in what plans the other has going on. This is how you can avoid arguing about whether or not one informed the other about an important event. If it’s in the book there’s no surprise.

Keeping a dry-erase calendar posted near the front door helps with any last minute changes that may come up. It also keeps the kids informed on what the family is up to, and you may also want to include their important events as well. Make it fun and interesting enough so that everyone can feel important and relevant.

These are just a couple of simple suggestions, but there are many more. You want to be a part of your husband’s life as much as he wants to be a part of yours. Take the time and effort required to be there to support one another. Some choose to not take these simple steps and then they wonder why there is so much distance between them and their spouse. The point is that communication keeps us involved, organized, and ultimately…happy.
