I’m a hopeless romantic at heart, so when February rolls around, I get as excited as a school girl for Valentine’s Day. While I am all about a day of romance and sweet sentiments, one aspect baffles me about the Hallmark holiday every year.

Marriage is more than one day set aside to honor your spouse. I need to honor my spouse everyday!

But marriage can be hard and with the demands of everyday life, we can easily lose connection with the one we pledged forever.

There is one concept that can reconnect two souls and remind us what true commitment is about.

Service.

28 Days of Blessing Your Spouse Challenge Faith Along the Way

Need a reminder of the benefits of serving your spouse?  Check out the The One Word that Will Change Your Marriage and remember what it’s like to selflessly serve your spouse.

In my own marriage I have let serving him fall by the wayside with the busyness of life and I realize that if I am going to bless him every day, I have to be intentional about my actions.

Therefore, I am challenging married couples everywhere to focus on your marriage and serving your spouse for the 28 days of February!  

It’s time to bless your spouse each day and make him your first priority again.

It’s time to be sacrificial with your time and energy, even if these acts of service are not reciprocated.

It’s time to put aside wrongs, extend grace, and show him you’re still committed to the marriage, in the good times and the bad.
