e I love it! I can’t get enough of it! Marriage! But not just any old marriage… A Godly, thriving Marriage!
It takes work… not everyone tells you that. But it is so worth the work, to cultivate something beautiful; something so beautiful that it gives God glory! After all, He is the Creator of such an awesome gift!
Ann Voskamp is one of my very favorite “blog authors” by far! She says:
It’s the disconnected souls who poorly communicate.“
I love the way she writes. I love her heart for my Savior, Jesus Christ! Most of all, I love the way she adores her husband! Her blog is A Holy Experience, but she writes over at (In)Courage. That’s where she writes about marriage today.
(She warns: Only if you are ready for some Song of Solomon!) These words are for you women that are married, looking to fall in love and stay in love, each day with your soul mate, you best friend!

It only takes four minutes a day to move into a deeper heart place. It only takes four minutes a day to connect in soul intimacy; to breathe in oxygen for the other half of my heart. Don’t and I too begin to suffocate, the death heave. I wish someone had told me in the beginning.
Four times a day think on love. When I leave the marriage bed, leave the front door, when I return to front door, return to marriage bed. These are the four critical archways of time in our day. Touch or whisper a sweet nothing when passing through these gate points, and we walk into hours of closeness. Forever love fixates like fresh love.
Four times a day, wrap up in husband. Embrace fully and hold each other’s eyes. That’s all. Repeat four times daily. The one flesh breathes best when the skin pores are close; connected.
Four times during the day, thank him. For working faithfully to provide, for hanging up his towel, for putting gas in the van, for making this heart skip a wild beat. Look for the ways to thank him and watch how moves closer.
