Let’s just go ahead and admit that relationships take effort and work especially marriage. Marriage isn’t easy at all but is certainly rewarding and a true gift from God. That’s for certain. No couple can honestly say that they don’t need any help when it comes to communication. We all can work on this area which is why I hope this idea today will bless you and your marriage.
Plus it’s that wedding and anniversary season with so many beautiful summer weddings. I can practically hear the wedding bells right now. So if you enjoy this idea that I will go into more detail about, then you are going to want to pass it on to a new married couple or even that couple that has been married for many, many years.
This idea all started when I saw this beautiful, farmhouse style decor that reads the scripture from Song of Solomon.
“I have found the one whom my soul loves.” Song of Solomon 3:4
What engaged couple wouldn’t love to have this piece and start their marriage in a prayer that can be a daily reminder when they hang this in their new home together. I just love it for sure! Plus with all the popularity of the farmhouse style recently.
Now for the communication builder… If there is one thing that I have learned during my marriage thus far, it’s that sometimes us humans are not the best at using words and letting others know what we mean. Then before you know it, you may have entered a war zone of hurtful words that you can’t take back. If we could only learn to stop and take a break for a minute.
Hopefully that can all change after today. Try having “His and Her” journals to write down what you are thinking, how you feel, and any other concerns or questions. Then you don’t have to worry one bit that something you say won’t come across the right way. You can write down all your feelings without being interrupted so you can explain exactly what you mean.
But don’t think of this journal as a negative or complaint book. You could also use it to compliment your spouse or simply write them a love letter. Then once you have written in the book, place it in a special spot so your spouse will know they have a message waiting for them.
I chose this floral pattern journal from Dayspring for myself. I fell in love with the pattern right away.
It even has a zipper pocket on the front to keep pens and other accessories handy.
Worried that a planner won’t look “manly” enough? Well I found this brown hard cover journal with a beautiful scripture on the front regarding a faithful man from Proverbs. The pages are lined as well with scripture and quotes throughout the journal.
Mark, my husband, loved his journal. Below is a picture of the two of us 6 years ago at our wedding. We have been married for 6 years. I can truly say that I love him more and more than the day we got married. The main reason for that is because we have worked hard to keep God at the center of our relationship. It truly makes a HUGE difference.
Now make sure to head over to Dayspring to check out these goodies above that would be a perfect gift for any wedding or anniversary. They have a beautiful selection of other journals to suit anyone’s taste. And the greatest of these is love,
