Make It Grow: TAP
Marriages are precious. They require our daily efforts to make them grow, just like a garden. We cannot refuse to sow into them and still expect to reap the benefits of a loving spouse and wonderful marriage. You get out of it what you put into it. Just like a neglected garden will wither and die, so will a neglected spouse and marriage.
Going into this weekend, remember TAP:
- Time – Give your marriage and spouse the time he/she deserves. Set aside date nights at least once a week, and every day take time to just talk to your spouse about life.
- Attention – There is nothing that deserves your undivided attention like your spouse. Care for, tend to, and love your spouse. Listen for things you can be doing to meet their emotional and physical needs. Take that time you set aside for them and really show them the TLC they need, love, and deserve.
- Prevention – Set up the safeguards necessary to protect yourself, your spouse, your marriage, and your family. Look for weak spots, temptations, and potentially dangerous areas. Work together on strengthening your marriage and eliminating those problematic pests that are trying to destroy your marriage and your life.
Your marriage is the best gift you have been given, but it needs your time, attention, and prevention if you want to it to stay healthy, thrive, and blossom!
