As I prepare for my wedding day and my future marriage, I have been seeking the advice and wisdom of others who have been walking that road. The day before the wedding, at my bridal luncheon, I had the opportunity to hear from the ladies who will be standing with us. Here are some of the things I heard, maybe they will bless you.
“Always believe the best in one another.”
“Don’t wait until you’re old to begin forgetting things. Keep short accounts. Let things go. Forgive.”
“Always kiss each other goodnight…even when you’re mad”.
“Once an issue has been settled, do not revisit it.”
“Laugh. Laugh a lot.”
“No one can bless your husband more than you can. And, also, no one can wound him more than you can. Choose your words wisely.”
“Once said, forever heard. Watch your words.”
“Choose your battles wisely. Don’t waste words on what’s unimportant.”
“Be sympathetic and compassionate. Get in the puddle with each other.”
“Everything is redeemable.”
“Always speak well of your husband. Honor him always.”
“Believe the best of your husband. He will strive to meet your expectations and be a better man.”
“Schedule play time. Don’t forget to date each other.”
“Keep your focus in the right place. If you’re both walking with The Lord, you’ll walk better together.”
“Remember to let things go. Little things will build up and feel like a big thing, but remember, it’s all still just little things. Let them go.”
I will treasure this advice. I hope it blessed your day. These ladies blessed me so much by sharing their experience. Wisdom is the best gift. I pray that I walk well and can one day share my experience with others. Blessings to you all!
