Lea and I have 3 cordless phones in our house. We’ve learned that if you leave any of them off the charger for more than a day, the battery dies. Nothing is more frustrating than trying to answer a ringing phone that has a dying or dead battery. Everyday we have to make sure that we reconnect them to the charger, so they can work properly.
Our marriage, and yours too, is a lot like our cordless phones … leave them off the charger for very long and our “marriage battery” starts to run low. That’s why married couples need to make it their goal to reconnect on a regular basis, especially if you have children in the home. Reconnecting with your spouse can be as simple as going out to dinner without the kids, going for a walk, sitting on the porch to talk about your day or having some quiet-time together after you put the kids down at night. One of the ways Lea and I reconnect is, we have made it our daily afternoon routine to slip away from whatever we’re doing and meet for coffee to catch up. We have found this to be a great way to reconnect and keep our marriage battery charged. We all have lots of relationships, but honestly none on earth is more important that the one with your spouse.
Our marriage is like our cordless phones … leave them off the charger for very long and our battery starts to run low.
Whatever you do, DON’T let the battery on your marriage run low or run out. Be deliberate and proactive in reconnecting with your spouse every day.
We’d love to know …
- When is the last time you reconnected with your spouse?
- What are some things you and your spouse do to reconnect?
