Here’s why: In light of Valentine’s Day tomorrow (a day on which I will NOT be posting because I’ll be focusing on my OWN married lover!), I’m going to share with you some wonderful posts that have been popping up all over the web this week. And guess what? They’re all about…
Katie Ganshert got things rolling this morning with her thoughts on The Love Lie – “I love him/her, but I’m not IN love anymore.” Ooooooh! That one really gets my goat, too, Katie!
Jessica Patch talks about the ULTIMATE INTIMATE LOVER – What a beautiful picture she paints from the words of Song of Solomon.
Jennifer Major proclaims that NO, Love is NOT a Battlefield, and she shares with us some straight-shooting tips on how to fuel the fire without igniting the fuse…. (AND we finally get a glimpse of THE MISTER!)
Kristen Welch reblogged a post she wrote at this time last year, 100 Ways to Make Your Marriage Mediocre, because the response was incredible back then…and it continues to garner huge responses today. Why? Because her words resonate with us and highlight our own–often unintentional–slip and slide into mediocrity in marriage. She also wrote 100 Ways to Make Your Marriage Rock – a follow-up. Kristen has LOTS of uplifting and encouraging posts on Married Love, as well as family, friends, and parenting – do hang out over there. You won’t be sorry.
Wendy Lawton, of Books & Such Literary Agency, in her blog post, Words of Love, shared an exercise from Francis Chan’s Crazy Love, one that focuses on BEING the right person first, and not always waiting for the other one to be the right person. Very convicting…yet, very inspiring at the same time.
Tricia Goyer is posting a series called, 10 Tips for Young Married Couples this month. What gives it real impact is that it’s a collection of tips from all her readers, fans, and friends who’ve been married 20 years or longer…but even those of us who “qualify” to share our personal tips can learn from each other. So far, she’s posted Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, and Part 4.
I do hope you spend a few minutes checking some of these wonderful posts out. Aren’t our marriages WORTH it?
How about you? Do you have any MARRIED LOVE links or tips to share with us?
