Good Morning!!

Josh and I have been reading a book together called "The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work”, by John Gottman. If you're married, I highly recommend this book; it's really good!

Principle 2 is to nurture your fondness and admiration. It includes an exercise where you practice cherishing your spouse by writing ten qualities you love about them and when they demonstrated those qualities.

As I started making this list, something dawned on me: I need to do this exercise with Jesus! So, I began writing a list of the qualities I love about Him, and tears began welling up in my eyes. I felt such an overwhelming appreciation for who He is and what He has done for me.

By the end of this exercise, I had a deep sense of gratitude and awe!! Reflecting on His qualities brought a renewed sense of closeness that still overwhelms me whenever I read the list. It was a powerful reminder to me how importance it is to nurture our spiritual relationships as well.

So this morning, I encourage you to try this exercise too. Whether it's for your spouse, a close friend, or our Heavenly Father, take a moment to write down the qualities you love and appreciate. By the end, I promise you’ll have a fresh perspective of gratitude that will have a ripple effect in your life today.

Psalm 95:1-3 says,

“Come, let us sing to the Lord! Let us shout joyfully to the Rock of our salvation. Let us come to him with thanksgiving. Let us sing psalms of praise to him. For the Lord is a great God, a great King above all gods.” AMEN!🙏

Thank you for letting me share. I’m so glad you’re here and hope you have a great day!❤️
