Every marriage is different and we all have our own recipes, but the three main ingredients are the same: God, you and your spouse. Every other ingredient adds the unique flavor of your relationship and covenant with God.
Appreciate your spouse this week! Say an extra prayer or two. Enjoy a special dinner together. And be sure to tell the love of your life how much you love him!
