Share the Beauty: Marriage Letters Topics


Seth, Joy, Scott, and I would love for you to join us again by writing Marriage Letters to your spouse. We’re starting back in April, every Monday writing letters because we believe that when we bless our own marriages, we bless the marriages of others. When you go hard after your marriage, I’m encouraged to go after mine.

Are you in? Here’s the schedule of topics:

April 1 – On Serving Together

April 8 – On the Names I Call You

April 15 – I Trust You Because

April 22 – Enduring Loss Together

April 29 – On Outside Influences

Also, this weather reminds me of Ireland, the chilly summer I spent there reading poetry and now I really can’t stop listening to the following song.

Irish air was always wet, and the nose was cold. And you could see inside the tiny rivers running to the sea. You could see trout flashing in the sun.  It was always green, and that cliche was sure and good as whisky down a singing man’s throat.

Something there didn’t ignore pain and it didn’t stop playing like a kid. I loved it. Any place you want to tell me about?

I just came across your blog and love this idea! I can't wait to tell my husband about it when he gets home :) We used to write letters to each other while we were dating, but haven't much since we got married last August.

P.S. - the video you posted is so beautiful! Loved it.

Once again, I am so excited about this! On communion Sundays, I am forced by the moments of silence before the elements to examine my spiritual life before I partake. Slowing down to write these letters, to examine my marriage, forces me to take a hard look at myself, to chisel away at my selfishness, and to preserve and celebrate the results of commitment.
