Greetings from the road. More specifically, from Oregon. My new bride and I are moving across the country to start life as a separate, new unit. As we have been driving, we have been getting to know each other more. For example, if she could grow only one plant what would it be? She says an apple tree. I chose potatoes. If the Irish survived off that stomach filling, hearty crop it seems like a good way to go. We in our relationships grow daily whether we know it or not. If there is no communication or a sense of ‘dating your spouse’ we will change right before each other’s eyes and not even know it. Twenty years later we wonder where the person we married went to. I encourage you to get to know your spouse again if you haven’t been able to lately. The children need to see the husband and wife relationship as a solid one built on Christ as a foundation.
Next week, I will cover how to deal with male chauvinists.
