in the generous life

(Today is Valentine’s Day.  Kiss and hug your sweetie.  Leave him a love note.  Ravish him.  Let him know that he is the love of your life.)

I just read a terrific blog post on Laugh Your Way to a Better Marriage. I was so right on that I just have to pass it on to y’all. Please read it in its entirety.  It is well worth the time.

Get Off the Island!

Loved that post from Laughing your way to a better Marriage. So true and a much needed word to the body. It’s so important for me to remember that even the pastors have marriage conflict…no one is on a pedestal. I would love to come to a place in our church community that we do this with each other. And I’m already very blessed that our church is trying to make reality a priority.
