I’ve been thinking about married life lately, and I’ve come to realize that it all comes down to “I do.”
Twenty-two years ago I stood in front of a gathering of family and friends and I said, “I do,” to John. But to keep our marriage strong, the “I dos” continue . . .
I do choose to love.
I do choose to be faithful.
I do choose to meet my spouse’s needs.
I do choose to respect.
I do choose to take time for fun (which right now involves tucking toddlers into bed and reading stories to them!).
What are some of your “I dos?”
“I do choose not to talk negatively about my husband to anyone (part of respect).” ~Shirley Rempel
“I do choose to love even when I do not seem so lovable!” ~Doni Marie Bennett
“I do choose to take care of myself and my husband by cooking healthy food and not keeping too much junk around, as well as encouraging him to take walks with me.” ~Karen H. Phillips
“I do choose to serve my husband and my family.” ~Nicole Didier Konotopka
“I do choose to serve my God first, which allows me to serve my husband better.” ~Paulette Frystak Goyer

I LOVE this Tricia!! I’ve never looked at “I do” in that manner but it is so true. ‘I do’ choose to see the best in my husband, to choose him each day and love him to the fullest. ‘I do’ adore him and always will.
