Date Weekly

Written by Boyd Bailey

Thoughts from daily Bible reading for today- February 14, 2013

I delight to sit in his shade, and his fruit is sweet to my taste. Song of Songs 2:3

Couples who calendar weekly dates subscribe to not taking themselves and life too serious. A night of romance and fun is a sure fire way to keep the flames of marriage burning brightly. Work and children are put on pause during this window of intimacy, so emotions can lovingly engage. A date is meant to be free from distractions (no electronics) and mental clutter. Indeed, weekly dates recalibrate a husband and wife’s relationship around love and laughter.

When you sit in the shade of your spouse’s tree of trust, you find acceptance and affirmation. No one can give you more meaningful approval than your best friend. If he or she seeks approval elsewhere, you are in danger of emotional estrangement. Yes, dating gives you an excuse to pursue your precious marriage partner with romantic anticipation. You clean up and dress up just for them. Perhaps you take turns planning the date experience, so it stays fresh and exciting.

Like a lily among thorns is my darling among the young women. Song of Songs 2:2Date night can require a financial commitment, so budget accordingly. There is a cost, but you can’t afford not to invest in your most important relationship. It’s less expensive than a counselor or divorce. Be creative: a coffee shop, bookstore, walk in the park or park the car and quietly watch a sunset. Use date night as an excuse to buy new shoes or get a haircut. Do something special just for your special friend. Conversation and connection can lead to physical intimacy.

Lastly use your weekly time together to reminisce about fun times from the past. Ask questions like: What was your favorite trip we had together? What getaway would you like to do together going forward? What past answered prayers are you grateful to God for answering? Your weekly date night is a remedy for getting stuck in the crazy cycle of no conversation and growing apart. Focused time with your sweetheart honors them and honors the Lord. Plan to date weekly.

Arise, come, my darling; my beautiful one, come with me. Song of Songs 2:13

Prayer: Heavenly Father give us conviction and creativity to calendar a weekly date night.

    Awesome Wisdom! We have been married 35 years and we are “best friends”! Date Night has always been a part of our marriage, still look so forward to it. Heavenly Hindsight says just do it! Have a “date night”! It will bless your marriage and your relationship in ways you could not even begin to imagine. Take the time to invest in your relationship, it is time well spent!

    Our date night is friday. We have a restaurant we go to. The restaurant is run by a family. Mom and son are the cooks and usually one of two daughters are serving tables. Dad who is handicap a little runs the cash register. I also am handicapped and need a wheelchair to set in. One of two granddaughters will hold the door open so I can get my wheel chair in. Not to long ago I invited a lady I use to sing in a gospel quart with so I could surprise the mom. I found out that the mom and this lady graduated from high school in the same class. I enjoyed your article. The restaurant is in Metamora, Ohio.

    I am the co-founder of JustCBD company (justcbdstore.com) and I’m presently trying to broaden my wholesale side of business. I am hoping someone at targetdomain can help me 🙂 I considered that the most effective way to accomplish this would be to connect to vape companies and cbd stores. I was really hoping if anybody at all could recommend a trustworthy website where I can purchase Vape Shop Sales Leads I am already taking a look at creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com. Not exactly sure which one would be the very best choice and would appreciate any assistance on this. Or would it be much simpler for me to scrape my own leads? Ideas?

    After looking into a few of the blog articles on your website, I truly like your technique of blogging. I bookmarked it to my bookmark site list and will be checking back soon. Please check out my website as well and let me know how you feel.

And he actually ordered me breakfast due to the fact that I stumbled upon it for him… lol. So allow me to reword this…. Thank YOU for the meal!! But yeah, thanx for spending some time to talk about this subject here on your web page.

    This excellent website certainly has all the information I wanted concerning this subject and didn’t know who to ask.

  11. The very next time I read a blog, Hopefully it doesn’t fail me as much as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read, however I truly believed you would have something useful to talk about. All I hear is a bunch of complaining about something you can fix if you weren’t too busy looking for attention.

    Hi, I think your site may be having web browser compatibility issues. When I take a look at your blog in Safari, it looks fine however, when opening in IE, it has some overlapping issues. I simply wanted to provide you with a quick heads up! Aside from that, wonderful site!

  13. The very next time I read a blog, Hopefully it won’t disappoint me just as much as this particular one. I mean, Yes, it was my choice to read through, but I truly believed you’d have something helpful to talk about. All I hear is a bunch of moaning about something you could possibly fix if you weren’t too busy looking for attention.

    Aw, this was an incredibly nice post. Taking a few minutes and actual effort to produce a really good article… but what can I say… I put things off a whole lot and never manage to get anything done.
