Monday Marriage Mattters – December Recap

As the year comes to a close, I look back on these posts of Monday Marriage Matters and know that we have truly worked on our marriage this past year.  These posts are not simply done for the viewing of the public; they are our lives, our marriage that really, truly matters.  We want to daily be pouring into this God-given gift, so that it is growing, but also so that it is a picture of the Gospel.

Here’s what the last month of our Marriage Matters looked like:


Christmas mugs. Sweet messages. Full cups and hearts.


I love making something in my kitchen that I know my husband is going to love. Surprising him when he comes home is a joy that never gets old.


Happiness is not not found in things, but in relationships. To be married is one of God’s greatest blessings. Why Do people get married and then stop having fun? We should never get over the joy of time together. Oh, and when there’s mistletoe, we use it! “Ban the peck.”


The work of Christmas is a lot for the wife, but this guy helps me so much when I work in the kitchen. He thanked me for all I did to make Christmas special, but I was quick to remind him that I couldn’t have done it without his help, and It’s So true. We work as a team, each contributing to our home and marriage. It’s not 50/50, it’s 100/100.

What does your marriage look like as you end out 2016?  Is it stronger, deeper and better because you have been intentional?

I pray that these posts have encouraged your marriage this past year.  Take a look back and see other Marriage Matters posts here.
