“R” is for Reminiscing
Our children love to hear stories from their childhood. We enjoy telling them the stories. We like to walk down memory lane.
The good, the bad, the funny…
Reminiscing is a such a great tool to enhance your relationship with your spouse. We reminisce quite often about our first meeting, first date, wedding proposal, wedding ceremony, anniversaries, holidays, vacations, etc. These memories are special to us and when we talk about them, we are reminded of those good and exciting feelings that accompanied the memory. Anything that reminds you of your love for each other is something that you should cultivate.
Remember the funny things so that you can laugh together.
But it isn’t just the good memories that you should remember. While remembering happy times reminds us of good feelings and our love for each other, remembering the sad times or trials reminds us of how good God has been to us and how thankful we are to have each other. Look at how many times God tells the Israelites to remember things. He instructed them to have ceremonies of remembrance.
Reminiscing is a simple thing and yet a very powerful tool for building your marriage.
Don’t take your spouse or your marriage for granted; remember your love for each other and all the hard work that you have invested in this relationship. Always be thankful that God, in His infinite wisdom, put you together. Never stop reminiscing.
