Date Night Postponed

I'm not sure if it's a matter of opinion or a proven fact but I believe every marriage needs down time. Not down time away from each other. Just the opposite. Down time away from the kids. Dh and I take a night a week for us. We go out to dinner, a movie or even just a walk through the mall. Anything to be together, just us. Sometimes life gets so chaotic. If it's not one thing it's another and it's easy to drift apart and just co-exist. So, Fridays are usually our us time. This week, however, we are postponing until tomorrow. Our eldest daughter comes home from camp in the late morning so we'll have a little family time. Maybe we'll go to the aquarium in Seattle. Tomorrow night is date night. We're going to dinner with a couple of friends from church then off to see Michael W. Smith in Federal Way. I call him "the other man in my life" I love his music and his concerts are so spirit filled. It's a wonderful experience.

Thank you to all of you who follow my little blog. I never thought of it as something someone else would want to read.

John 4:23-24 "Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in Spirit and truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. God is Spirit, and His worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth."

So true! I also believe couples need time together no matter what they are doing.

My husband has been so busy with work, I barely see him. Other than his work, our little farm has needed some attention. So for our friday night date, we ended up mowing pastures together. He even let me drive the tractor! HA

whatever it takes right!!

Love the scripture!

Date night is as important as anything in a marriage. Not to mention just fun!

Have fun!

I think you are absolutely right about the importance of Date Night. Couples need to connect all of the time without kids. It keeps the marriage alive. Good for you for recognizing that and making it happen. Have fun at your concert!

I agree with you1! You definitely need a date night! I'm not married yet, i'm a single mom, but I take one night to myself as well. It's needed for your sanity!

Following you from Friendly Friday Follow!! Hopefully you can stop by my blog and do the same!
