Whilst in the middle of unpacking boxes, I found a new website called faithsmessenge.com and the section about marriage was interesting. I share the 'marriage maintenance idea' with you and I appreciate your feedback!
Marriage Maintenance – 30 Days of Appreciation
Here’s an exercise that will rejuvenate your marriage and cause you to consciously think about and appreciate your spouse on a new level. Take 30 post-it-notes and jot down something that you love or appreciate about your spouse on each one. For the next 30 days leave one note per day in places where he or she will find them.
You can leave your notes in the car, in his or her lunchbox, on the mirror in the bathroom, or in a dresser drawer or closet. Get creative. The thought you put into what you love and appreciate about your spouse for the next 30 days will serve as a reminder of why you fell in love in the first place.
Don’t allow complacency, stress, and the cares of this world to rob you of the freshness of married life. Nothing speaks to the world more than a healthy marriage.
Keeping love alive in your marriage will assure that your marriage and your family will remain strong when the storms of life rush in.

My beloved speaks and says to me: ‘Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away; for now the winter is past, the rain is over and gone. The flowers appear on the earth; the time of singing has come, and the voice of the turtle-dove is heard in our land. The fig tree puts forth its figs, and the vines are in blossom; they give forth fragrance. Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away. (Copyright: NRSV)
