Best love advice
In my last post, Showing the Love, I eluded to ingredients that have true staying power in a relationship. Today I thought I'd share a piece of "love advice"given to my husband and me that has cemented our 30 +year marriage. Like most great truths in life, it's really simple but it's application is often challenging but profound. Are you ready?
Raise and Lower
"Raise your appreciation and lower your expectations." There's something about our human nature that gravitates to the baseness of self-centeredness. But when we can insert the helium of consciously LOOKING outside ourselves to see the good in our spouse, we can be lifted up over a lot of rough terrain.
Count Your Blessings
In my sketchbook/prayer journal, I often download my thoughts using pastels and paints. It's cheap therapy! Below is a sketch I did in response to the meditation of thankfulness.
What about you? Have you had any pearls of advice? I'd love to hear! If you share, I'll do a sketch about it!
