Your Marriage: Is it Really a Priority?


YOUR MARRIAGE! It's the topic for the entire week upcoming, on the blog.  

Not married? Awesome. Because several of the posts will be about your possible FUTURE marriage! I aim to prepare you.

Specifically, we'll be unpacking the topic of priorities that lead to a successful marriage. I'm going to ask some powerful questions and make some eyebrow raising statements!

Get ready, get ready, get ready!

Never have I been more passionate about this. It's one reason I'm so excited to be away with my husband this coming week.

Today, Larry and I leave for the 25th anniversary cruise we've had planned for a year. When we planned this trip, we weren't aware that the church would be doing something special for us back in June, (on our actual anniversary week) and sending us away for a few days to Club Med, but I'm kinda glad that we didn't know. I didn't realize then how much I'd need to get away right now. What a God-send.

The time could not be better to take a break. It's only December 1st, but I have been burning the candle at both ends for a while now in preparing for the holidays.  The city wide, Tampa (Section 9) tea was last night at Celebration. (Did you see my post-event update about it? It was so awesome! Our team did a superb job of hosting this. I am so proud of each and every one of them!) And... I decided to actually write the Christmas show at Celebration this year instead of us performing a play or musical written by someone else. We've been working on this since July many days I say, "what in the heck was I thinking to WRITE a flippin Christmas show??!!   and it hasn't been easy.  But what things that are worth it, are?  It's going to be an unforgettable night (December 16, at 6 pm...just sayin')

I am so thankful for God's grace in giving me strength thus far, as well as provision that makes this getaway possible.

 Thanks to technology, all my posts are pre-set to publish, so I'll be "here" even though I'm not "here."  I have a friend managing my blog and Facebook this week. (Thanks, Melissa! You rock!) She will post things for me, and moderate any comments and make sure things run smooth. So I'll still be "here" although I'm not posting live. 

We are cruising to St. Maarten, St. Thomas (the two places I've always dreamed of cruising to!) and making a stop at the Bahamas as well.  Concentrating on nothing but each other.

The holidays will wait...
