Too often the busyness of life distracts us from building and strengthening relationships. Your marriage is an important investment and requires regular, positive investments for future dividends.
The Love Journal is a creative and simple way to share your love and appreciation for your spouse. By putting your feelings into writing, you are able to organize your thoughts. Additionally, these positive words can be read, reread, and treasured for years to come. This journal can be passed to the next generation as a legacy of love.
You share the Love Journal with your spouse as you write entries back and forth. Discuss where your journal will be kept. Choose a visible location (bedside table, kitchen counter, etc.) that is available to both spouses. This idea is perfect for a couple with busy schedules but want to encourage one another through words of affirmation.
Periodically add a loving journal entry recording your thoughts and feelings toward your mate. You may choose to randomly add a note, record an entry for a special occasion, or choose a weekly pattern. If your journal is a gift, record your first entry as an example. Ideas for journal entries are listed below. Enjoy!
Add a journal entry reminder to your calendar once a week. Too often, the important people in your life get overshadowed by busyness.
