40 Days to a Stronger Marriage - Day 9 & 10

Today will be two days in one post. I like to keep my weekends clear, in order to spend much needed time as a family and take care of some other business.

Day 9 and 10 will be wrapped into one. I believe this is a big one. These two days are all about keeping God at the center of your marriage. I can't stress how important this one is in a relationship, and life in general. If we keep our focus on God, everything else melts away. This is not to say that life will be a rainbows and sunshine. We will still have trials, but with God as our focus we can walk through them.

I read this blog post a while back and it made total sense to me. They site, Walter Trobisch, saying in his book he illustrates the marriage relationship using a triangle. God is at the top and the husband and wife are at the bottom on either side. As each of us aims our focus on God, we come together with Him at the center. This is a perfect description of how marriage should be.

Day 9 & 10
Put your focus on God. Not on yourself, not on your spouse.

Just a quick note to let you know - I'm still with you. We had some family items take priority over me posting on the last few steps (I'll come back and comment once I get them up), but I'm still with you and my husband and I both enjoyed spending this weekend reflecting on God and the amazing life he has provided for us! We feel so very blessed to have our little family :)
