From Jim’s Heart—
Ask your wife to share some of the qualities that attracted her to you. I’ll bet one of those qualities was your fun-loving nature. You were both happy, laughed a lot, and had a good time no matter what. This was true for me in those dating years with Elizabeth. My nickname was “Smilin’ Jim.” I was completely happy-go-lucky and made sure every date was a blast!
Well, it’s now time for you to remember what you did to cultivate fun in your budding relationship with your wife. It’s time to bring that now-dormant “merry heart” out of hibernation. Recapture having fun with your wife!
As you remember the merry times you and your wife had in your earlier years together, remember something.
Fun came with a price—the price of time. You are going to have to be willing to make time for it. In the past you thought having fun together was important to your relationship with your beloved, so why wouldn’t it be important today?
The closer a husband is to God, the closer he will grow to his wife. That’s why it’s so vital for husbands to pursue God’s heart and get to know His perfect design for the man’s role in the marriage relationship. In A Husband After God’s Own Heart, Jim George will help you build a richer and deeper marriage.
