The hierarchy of priorities in one’s life should be first, their relationship with God; second, their relationship with their spouse; third, their relationship with their children; fourth, providing for and taking care of their family; then everything else. When our relationships are arranged in this order we will be able to receive direction from God that helps us show love for our spouse and family and care for them. God will bless our relationships and efforts and our capacity to love and accomplish will be enhanced.
Remembering the small and simple things is critical to finding and maintaining happiness in our lives and marriages. Expressing gratitude, carrying out random acts of kindness, saying “l love you,” spending time with those we love, doing the dishes and other household chores; these are the kinds of things that are simple to do but make all the difference in our lives. The more we do these things the happier we will be and the more satisfying our relationships, including marriage, will be. It’s simple, do the small things often.
That’s my advice: keep your priorities straight and do the small and simple things. While that sounds simple doing it takes effort, constant effort, but it’s worth it.
