Dear married couples & to the future Shane & I

Marriage. Today, I don't think it would be defined as forever. I'm not standing here saying that some marriages didn't end for a reason but a lot are ending for no reason at all besides sin. Sin slowly creeps in and if you're not on your toes you may let it take over completely.

I don't want to make anyone feel bad in this; I want to remind you of what you had and can have again. 

Don't forget the first date. Don't forget the first time you held hands. Don't forget the first kiss. Don't forget the day you got engaged. Don't forget the wedding planning, rehearsal dinner, and wedding day. Don't forget the honeymoon...although that would be pretty hard😏 Don't forget how crazy awesome it was the first night you got to sleep side by side.

Too many people have told us "just wait" implying how it will get bad, but right now, three months in we are still having the time of our lives. We pray together and talk about it constantly to just pursue Christ individually and to take it day by day. If you are 1 year into it, 5 years into it, or 50 years into it don't forget what it once was. Remember that it can be that again but only with Christ.
