Marriage: It’s Beautiful. It’s Natural. It’s Incredible

Married love is a funny thing. Built on a foundation of respect, honesty, commitment, and genuine friendship, it has to be nurtured, protected, developed, and honored. It’s almost like a child in a way – you give birth to it when you walk down the aisle. Then in the first few years of teaching it to “walk” or “work,” there are bumps and bruises as you get a feel for it. Finally, the cruising begins and you’re on your way…to more lessons, bumps and bruises, failures, and triumphs. Yet through it all, you have each other.

And while many in today’s society view marriage as antiquated, unnecessary, or even unrealistic (despite scores of happily married couples who beg to differ), those of us who are married know how joyful, fulfilling, and secure it can be. That’s why it’s so important to work to keep your marriage happy and healthy. I want to do something a little different today. Instead of telling you ways to keep your marriage spark alive, I want to help you understand the reason it is so crucial – and what can happen if you choose to let the flame extinguish.

Just Do It . . .

No resolutions. Decisions, Commitments, then Action!

Happy New Year! Welcome, 2015! I am so blessed, so thankful to God and so grateful to see another year. It’s crazy how quickly it seems to have come. And a New Year, feels like a new start. The opportunity to begin many things with a fresh perspective. It’s the time of year when people typically make resolutions, for things they’ll do differently. I charge you, instead of making a resolution, make a decision to make a commitment that leads to action!

You want to lose weight? Decide to do just that. Then commit to eating healthier and getting regular exercise. And once you’re committed … just do it! Want to curb needless spending, write that book, start that business, have a better relationship with your children, love your spouse more – it all begins with a decision. And the only one who has the power to make it is you.

I charge you to be inspired, to be encouraged and to be motivated … to make that difference in your life you want to see. It’s up to you. The ball is in your court.

Just do it!
