The Child in Us: Introduction
Sometimes when I think about it, it seems like forever since I was a kid. I watch my nieces and nephew growing up so quickly, and I have flashbacks of what it was like when I was their age. How quickly those years went by. It’s funny though how I can remember what it was like being a kid, and I realize that there is still a kid inside this adult facade. There are still basic, raw needs just like when being a kid. There is still that desire to have fun and be care free, to play and laugh, to just enjoy. While we all have to grow up, we shouldn’t forget to let the kid in us out sometimes, and that includes within the context of marriage.
No doubt marriage can be complicated and difficult. It can push us to our limits. At the same time, I think as adults we over complicate things. We have so many responsibilities in life, and sometimes we can’t see things entirely clearly or simply. That’s why this week, I want to talk about unlocking the child in us to put a little childlike pizazz and attitude into our marriage.
