Don't think that I believe this is easy. Living life by design, on purspose, instead of by default, takes work. It takes committment and dedication. And most of all, it takes selflessness. But I also believe that if the ones I love can really feel that I am selfless towards them, it will come back to me one hundred fold. When I find life getting really hectic or tough, I need to step back and examine who and what I am placing priority on. Yes, there are times when I need to dedicate myself to a job or committment or appointment. But I must always make sure my loved ones know that they are my priority.
If we can just purpose in our hearts and ask the Lord to show us how, we can let our spouse know that above all else in this life (except for our relationship with the Lord), they mattered most to us! Most of the time (though there are exceptions), when one human being feels like they are the top priority to another human being, the rewards are endless and there are great times of sweetness to be shared!
