"A gentle answer deflects anger, but harsh words make tempers flare."  -Proverbs 15:1

Chose not to fight today. Lots of times the power to stop a fight or not go there at all lies within each of us. Today, chose to respond gently when your buttons are pushed. Chose the soft response over finger pointing, name calling and yelling. Chose not to go there today.


Enjoy Your Marriage!

One of the biggest traps that I have fallen into in marriage is the comparison trap. I’m guilty of comparing my wife and our marriage to others.

The problem is comparison is dangerous. Primarily because we often compare ourselves or others to a perception and not a reality. I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve heard, “I wish my wife was more like the pastor’s wife.” Mind you, most of these guys don’t have a clue about what she’s REALLY like. Just the public persona that they see on Sundays.

Early on, Lorrie would cook for me and ask me what I thought. I would say, “It doesn’t taste like my mom or grandma’s.” Well, my grandma heard me say that one time and said, “Do you want to eat?”
 
I didn’t know that, in a sense, what I was communicating to Lorrie was, “You’re not good enough; you don’t measure up.” So as long as I was trying to make her over in my mom, grandma’s or anyone else’s image, things weren’t going to go well for us.

When I gave Lorrie comparison-free room to be who she is, our relationship got better and better. She didn’t feel like I was trying to change her and I learned I really enjoy her cooking and began to accept her for who she is.

“Pay careful attention to your own work, for then you will get the satisfaction of a job well done, and you won’t need to compare yourself to anyone else.”  Galatians 6:4 (NLT)

Good Eats!

Bad to Better, Good to Great...
January 7, 2014

You, like many others reading Marriage Daily, are probably in the early stages of working on your New Years resolutions.  The Journal of Clinical Psychology released this list of 2014's top New Years Resolutions:

1. Lose Weight
2. Getting Organized
3. Spend Less, Save More
4. Enjoy Life to the Fullest
5. Staying Fit and Healthy
6. Learn Something Exciting
7. Quit Smoking
8. Help Others in Their Dreams
9. Fall in Love
10. Spend More Time with Family

While all of these are worthwhile we want to challenge you to make your marriage a new year priority. What  does that mean? It means putting your marriage in a place of top priority. It is to put things concerning your marriage above other priorities. It means to actively work at building a better relationship with your spouse.

If your marriage is bad go for better. If it is better go for good. If it is good go for great! if it is great go for Awesome! Don't ever stop working on your marriage. You'll find that there are innumerable benefits to doing so. We will talk about some of them in the next few days

Here's to your best year yet!

"You crown the year with a bountiful harvest; even the hard pathways overflow with abundance." -Psalms 65:11

 
Enjoy Your Marriage!
