sometimes exploring some place new is so invigorating.

Husbuddy was in Boston all weekend for a conference. so, on Satuday, when the conference was done, i met him down there for a little date. we explored a little area called Copley Square. it was SO cute!

we’ve been feeling pretty ragged lately. totally exhausted from being too busy.

it was so nice to take a little time for date night. it felt like we were forcing ourselves to make time to do this. we didn’t really have the money to do a date night. we could have just met at home and had baked potatoes for dinner to save money and time. but we really needed this. we needed time to just hang out. we needed a chance to explore, a little time away together, to focus on each other. a little break from the house and everything we need  to do…

let me tell you, it was SO GOOD for our hearts, for each other.

a little date. not that hard. but why do we hardly ever make time for it?

it also made me think about this month’s theme on prayer. sometimes in our life we’re just so busy. it’s hard to find time, there are so many chores to do in our free moments, something is always coming up. sometimes, you have to literally make yourself do it.

 

 

wouldn’t it be great, if we could have a little date with God? if we took an evening, or morning, or something. we went for a walk, or went exploring some new place and we just hung out with God?

 

how awesome would that be?

Husbuddy is good at going on prayer walks. little dates with God where he just prays the whole time. i love that. i wish i was better at doing that.

 

maybe that’s something we could all try to make time for this week? i mean, we’re all too busy and should be doing something else… it’s going to be hard to find a moment here or there. but wouldn’t it be worth it? i mean, if just an evening together with Husbuddy can do so much to encourage us in our love, wouldn’t a date night with our Creator, our TRUE first Love, be awesome?!

our First Love really wants us to have little dates with Him.

“For I desire steadfast love and not sacrifice, the knowledge of God rather than burnt offerings.”

-Hosea 6:6

” I will give them a heart to know that I am the Lord, and they shall be my people and I will be their God, for they shall return to me with their whole heart”

-Jeremiah 24:7

go take a date night (or morning) with your Greatest Love this week, my friends. i encourage you. and i’ll try to too. ;)
