How often are you apart from your spouse? That

answer would vary from relationship to relationship

and person to person. Some may travel for work,

some for pleasure, spending time with friends,

taking individual time. Some may look forward to it,

while some need the break and others’ may not like being

apart at all.

For us, our Ministry allows us to be together every day and honestly, we wouldn’t have it any other way. We get up in the morning, read the Bible together, say our prayers, then we have a quick meeting to talk about what we have on our agenda’s each day. Our goal is to be as productive as we can. We wind down at night and say our prayers and Thank God for each other and for the day he has given us.

We do have occasions when we travel apart and do the separate work God leads us to do, but we never miss a morning call, talks during the day and good night calls. We work hard at our marriage and we ask God every day to guide and direct us and we believe that together, with God, our love will continue to grow each day. Our belief is, God has put us together and we put each other and our marriage above everything except God.

We encourage you to ask yourself; how do I feel about spending time with my spouse? Do I look forward to it? When we’re apart, how do I let my spouse know how much in love I am and how much I miss them? Is my spouse my priority? Are you asking God to guide you and direct you and be constantly in your marriage?

Mizpah, for he said, “The Lord watch between you and me, when we are out of one another's sight. Genesis 31:49

We would love for this article to be a place for you to ask questions and share your thoughts or concerns with us and we will do our best, with prayerful minds and hearts to respond with guidance and encouragement.
