I know I said my next post here would be all about my goals for the year, and my “One Word” for 2013. I already have it drafted but I’m just waiting for the graphic to go with it. (I’m SO excited about this, really! I hope you’ll stick around so I can share the post with you once it’s ready!)

The faults and weaknesses of each one are compensated for by each other’s virtues. Each possesses what the other lacks. This results in a loving dependence on each other for spiritual growth and transformation. If a married couple can form a habit of looking at each other in a sacramental way – seeing the beauty of God in each other’s souls – seeking to enhance that beauty by upbuilding each other- mutually growing in the image of Jesus – then that Sacrament of Matrimony bears the stamp of the living God.
If you’re married, I highly encourage you to take the extra time this year to honor your spouses. Take the time to see the little things they do for you and your family, and let them know how much you appreciate them. Believe me, it will make a difference somehow.
Of course, relationships, especially marriages, that have God at the center, will be even more blessed! I know it’s a struggle to do this — to be in a “love triangle” with God and your spouse — but I’ve learned that, despite the challenges, you’ll find that married life will become so much easier.
