10 Tips for Happy Married Life

Healthy marriages have in common?

In every one of them you will find two people committed to making each other happy.

Try these 10 time-tested techniques and experience the happiness, peace, and tranquility of a healthy marriage.

1. Make time for each other.
It's so easy in our hyper-busy modern lifestyles to forget to set aside a little time to enjoy each other's company. Start a weekly tradition of setting a date for the two of you to be together doing something you both enjoy. Keep it simple. Take a nice walk together. Sip coffee together in a cozy coffeehouse. Talk to each other, reminisce, and get to know each other again.

2. Take time off from each other.
Give each other space and time to work on hobbies and personal interests. When you have an interesting project to work on, you will feel more fulfilled and you will be a more interesting person.

3. Make little romantic gestures.
Remember to compliment your spouse. Leave a little love note for them to find once in awhile. Celebrate the day you first met. Send flowers for no particular reason. You should continuously make little deposits in your spouse's emotional bank account. The return on your investment will be incredible.

4. Fight fair.
Don't argue in front of other people. Don't insult each other or each other's families. Never threaten divorce, and never go to bed angry. Let the little things go, and don't make a big deal out of every disagreement. Before arguing, think; is this really going to matter in the long run?

5. Take interest in what interests your spouse.
Watch their favorite shows with them. Read their favorite book, so you can talk about it with them. Encourage them to develop their talents.

6. Listen to your spouse.
Husbands, remember that women need to express their feelings. Be a good sport and just listen. Don't interrupt, or get distracted. Empathize with her. Let her know that you can relate to what she's feeling. Ladies, please remember that the kind of talk you might like to have with your husband does not come naturally to most men. Just be patient. It's not a good idea to "unload" on him right when he comes home from work.

7. Accept your spouse for who they are.
Practice total acceptance. Don't hold your spouse to your expectations; you will only succeed at building resentment.

8. Express your commitment.
In little ways, you can, and should, renew your vows to each other over and over. Your spouse will feel comfortable and secure knowing that you are truly committed to the marriage. True closeness will only happen when all doubt and insecurity is replaced by confidence in the relationship. Let your spouse know that you really are in it "till death do us part."

9. Trust in each other.
Don't be suspicious. Don't snoop through each other's belongings. To help ensure the trust, be honest with your spouse in all things. Never keep secrets from each other, not even little ones.

10. Make it your aim to be your spouse's best friend.
Appreciate your spouse for who they are. Loosen up and have fun with each other. If you are practicing the steps above, you are on your way to being your spouse's best friend ? The ultimate relationship in marriage.

A Penny

Several years ago, a friend of mine and her husband were invited to spend the weekend at the husband's employer's home. My friend, Arlene, was nervous about the weekend. The boss was very wealthy, with a fine home on the waterway, and cars costing more than her house.

The first day and evening went well, and Arlene was delighted to have this rare glimpse into how the very wealthy live. The husband's employer was quite generous as a host, and took them to the finest restaurants. Arlene knew she would never have the opportunity to indulge in this kind of extravagance again, so was enjoying herself immensely.

As the three of them were about to enter an exclusive restaurant that evening, the boss was walking slightly ahead of Arlene and her husband.

He stopped suddenly, looking down on the pavement for a long, silent moment. Arlene wondered if she was supposed to pass him. There was nothing on the ground except a single darkened penny that someone had dropped, and a few cigarette butts.

Still silent, the man reached down and picked up the penny. He held it up and smiled, then put it in his pocket as if he had found a great treasure. How absurd! What need did this man have for a single penny? Why would he even take the time to stop and pick it up? Throughout dinner, the entire scene nagged at her.

Finally, she could stand it no longer. She Casually mentioned that her daughter once had a coin collection, and asked if the penny he had found had been of some value.

A smile crept across the man's face as he reached into his pocket for the penny and held it out for her to see. She had seen many pennies before! What was the point of this?

"Look at it." He said. "Read what it says."

She read the words " United States of America ."

"No, not that; read further."

"One cent?"

"No, keep reading."

"In God we Trust?"



"And if I trust in God, the name of God is holy, even on a coin. Whenever I find a coin I see that inscription. It is written on every single United States coin, but we never seem to notice it! God drops a message right in front of me telling me to trust Him? Who am I to pass it by? When I see a coin, I pray, I stop to see if my trust IS in God at that moment. I pick the coin up as a response to God; that I do trust in Him. For a short time, at least, I cherish it as if it were gold. I think it is God's way of starting a conversation with me. Lucky for me, God is patient and pennies are plentiful!

When I was out shopping today, I found a penny on the sidewalk. I stopped and picked it up, and realized that I had been worrying and fretting in my mind about things I cannot change. I read the words, "In God We Trust," and had to laugh. Yes, God, I get the message. It seems that I have been finding an inordinate number of pennies in the last few months, but then, pennies are plentiful!
And, God is patient...

You're The One

Just one more night
to have you in my arms,
to hear you say you love me,
to shelter me from harm.

Just one more dream
before the break of dawn,
to echo the magic moments
when you were never gone.

Just one more kiss
with fingers interlaced,
to breath you in completely,
to memorize your taste.

Just one more dance
before the music dies,
to allow my heart's surrender
to passion's sad demise.

Just one more chance
before this poem is done,
to tell you that I love you,
you'll always be...
the one.

Good Success Is In Your Mouth

Joshua 1:8
8This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night… For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.

I had always wondered why the Torah (the first five books of Moses) is read out loud by the Jews. Then, a Jewish Christian told me that for generations, they read God’s Word out loud because of Joshua 1:8 — “This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night…”

The word “meditate” in English means to ponder. But in Hebrew, it is the word hagah, which means to utter or mutter under your breath. In other words, when you meditate on God’s Word, you speak forth or confess His Word instead of just giving it mental assent.

My friend, hagah God’s Word by confessing verses in the areas that you are believing God for breakthroughs. When I was working in sales, I confessed verses like, “Honor the Lord with your possessions, and with the firstfruits of all your increase; so your barns will be filled with plenty…” (Proverbs 3:9–10) In the first year, I became the top salesman in my company! My way was made prosperous and I enjoyed good success.

“Pastor Prince, I am waiting for God to make my way prosperous.”

No, the Bible says that you will make your way prosperous when you hagah God’s Word. So speak forth verses in the areas which you want to see breakthroughs and you will have good success.

Some people have success that destroys them — you don’t see them in church anymore and their family members don’t get to see them either. That is bad success. But when you hagah God’s Word, you will have good success that does not destroy you.

Now, confessing God’s Word does not move God to do things for you. It is not a formula. God had already moved when He gave up Jesus to die for you. However, when you confess His Word, it moves you from a position of doubt to faith. It moves your heart from a position of “Is it true?” to “I believe it!” When that happens, “you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success”!

Praise for God

God made the mountains
kiss the clouds
that we may look up beyond
our own small world
and strive to reach great heights.
He made the ocean wide and mighty
to remind us of the
greatness of his love
and the power of his strength.
He frosts the earth with
diamonds in the winter
to reveal the riches that
await us in heaven,
and he awakens the earth
with a profusion of lilacs and daffodils
in the spring to show us that
we've been given
the gift of eternal life.
He has created masterpieces,
and every one of them
are part of the circle of life and serve
some great purpose.
From the forests, to the valleys,
across the dales, and even to the
most distant twinkling star,
and the early morning mist that
creeps over the hills,
God has blessed the earth with
his talented hand.
So do you think that God could have
erred when he made you?
Of course he didn't.
You're perfect,
exactly what God intended you to be.
As the earth is reborn this spring,
remember that you're one of
God's great masterpieces,
a testament to his infinite
wisdom and perfection.

There's work to do, deadlines to meet.
You've got no time to spare.
But as you hurry and scurry...
(Always Say A Prayer)

In the midst of family chaos,
"quality time" is rare.
Do your best; let God do the rest...
(Always Say A Prayer)

It may seem like your worries
are more than you can bear.
Slow down and take a breather...
(Always Say A Prayer)

God knows how stressful life can be
and wants to ease our cares.
He'll respond to all your needs...
(Always Say A Prayer)

Today I'm saying a little prayer
that God will send a smile to you
and send you special blessings
through everything you have to do.

Friends ’till the end,

Friends ’till the end,
That’s what we always said,
Even when all hopes were dead.

Friends ’till the end,
We will always be,
Nothing can ever come between you and me.

Friends ’till the end,
Even when nothing will bend,
Our friendship we will always mend.

There’s nothing we can’t overcome,
I know you’ll be there when I need someone.

We will never part,
As long as we have each other in our hearts.

Lies never told,
Standing together so strong and so bold.

With nowhere to begin,
I know I’ll never be without you as a friend.

Friends ’till the end,
You can cry on my shoulder,
That’s what I’ve always told her.

Friends ’till the end,
Through sun and snow,
While others still come and go.

Friends ’till the end,
When my light fades away,
She brings back the sunlight into my day.

Friends ’till the end,
Nothing else in mind,
Someone who’s always there when you’re in a bind.

Friends ’till the end,
All throughout time,
I’m proud to say you’re a friend of mine.

Friends ’till the end,
Even with a fight,
We’ll always be friends again that night.

Through thick and thin,
A strong friendship will always win.

Friends ’till the end,
Through laughter and tears,
With a friend you can overcome any fears.

Friend ’till the end,
We share all our dreams,
We will make it by any means.

Friends ’till the end,
Our hopes will all come true,
There’s no other pair like me and you.

Friends ’till the end,
Through highs and lows,
When we’re together anything goes.

Friends ’till the end,
We’re in the same boat,
But it will always stay afloat.

Friends ’till the end,
I’ll never be alone again,
As long as I have you as a friend.

Friends ’till the end,
No matter what people say,
We will always go our own way.

We may take other paths,
And go separate ways,
But we’ll always meet at the bend,
Because we’re friends ’till the end.

Words of success

The road to success is paved with motivation and determination. Don’t let the speed bumps slow you down. Instead let the overcoming of each, through faith, be your joy in the journey.

Why change your life tomorrow, when today is such a perfect time?

Live not in what has happened, or fear of what may come tomorrow. Live Well! in the here and now, and treat this as your defining moment.

Yesterday’s mistakes are not an excuse to continue damaging behavior, but rather reinforcement as to why you need to change.

Change without conviction is like a race car low on gas. Conviction is the very thing that fuels our plan of action, and makes it a lifestyle change.

Attitude fuels every step that we take, choose your’s wiseley each day.

Don’t look back on yesterday with despair. Look at tomorrow with hope.

Start each day in prayer asking God to guide your steps. That way you’ll be walking on a firm foundation.

Post your goals where you’ll see them often, along with notes of inspiration. Reminders are a good thing.

A key factor in acheiving our goals is accountability. Be accountable to God as well as each other.

With God all things are possible. Maybe it’s time to rely on His strength.

Knowledge is power, but without action it’s useless. Renew your mind daily through the truth of the Word, then use that wisdom to guide your body and soul.

The road to success is paved with motivation and determination. Don’t let the speed bumps slow you down. Instead let the overcoming of each, through faith, be your joy in the journey.

Imagine your goal at the top of a mountain. You’ll never reach it if you don’t start climbing.

Attaining your goal is not the end...on the contrary, it’s just the beginning!

Live not in what has happened, or fear of what may come tomorrow. Live Well! in the here and now, and treat this as your defining moment.
