Technology has been a wonderful tool to help believers across the world continue to be able to virtually meet while we are quarantined. Tuning in live on a Sunday morning may be a little more challenging with kids running around.
One option is to wait till the evening hours to view the service and afterward, reflect and pray together as a response to the word given.
One thing this ordeal has made so evident is our lack of control over our own lives. God is the only one that can help us through this difficult season. Only He numbers our days.
Spending extra time devoted to seeking God and learning more about who He is can help bring hope to your marriage through this uncertain time.
10. Complete a Puzzle Together
Choose a puzzle to complete together. Puzzles are a nice relaxing activity that you can work on while still carrying on a conversation. A nice addition to working on your puzzle would be a handmade charcuterie board.
Pick up your favorite cheese, meats, fruit, and crackers for a delicious spread to snack on while you unwind together. Choose some lovely relaxing background tunes and the scene is set for a lovely romantic evening at home.
1 Thessalonians 5:11 says, “Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.”
Don’t neglect to encourage your spouse as we walk through this difficult season. It can be easy to think outside our homes and see the ways others are suffering but somehow still even though we are literally stuck home neglect the person who you share a room with.
This is a chance to do more than press pause on our commitments; it’s a chance to invest in our love for each other in a fresh way. Dedicate some of this time home to loving each other better so our homes emerge from the quarantine stronger and healthier than ever.
