  by  Alan Cleaver      Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom – Psalm 90 : 12 What would you do differently if you realised time was running out on you? Would you apply more urgency to tasks in your life, career, marriage, etc? Would you make a deliberate effort to appreciate the people that matter most?

  by  Mike_fleming  The Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.” Genesis 2:18 (NLT) The Bible tells us that it was not good for the man to be alone, but it does not tell us why in this chapter. In this account of creation in Genesis 2, God created the heavens and the earth and all the animals. He created the man and brought all the creatures to the man to give than a name. God decided to make a “help meet” for him and then goes on Continue reading

  by  Vanguard Visions    Do  you take time to consider the effects of how you use social media, mobile and web apps usage on your marriage and family? Web and mobile apps have becoming an intrinsic part of our lives and are changing the way we relate to each other. A lot of us now spend so much time on these apps, sometimes  to the detriment of those closest to us physically. We browse the Internet, watch videos, read emails, carry out transactions, listen to music, check Facebook and social media sites etc on them. We use them as satnavs, portable WiFi hotspots, camcorders, Bibles, compasses, eReaders Continue reading

  by  balleyne    “This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called ‘woman,’ for she was taken out of man.” That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, and they become one flesh..- Genesis 2: 24 New International Version The scripture above is one that is often quoted at wedding ceremonies or whenever people talk about marriage. It gives a picture of God’s idea for marriage, that of a man leaving his immediate family and uniting with his wife to become one body. “Becoming one body” however Continue reading

Be Thankful!

One thing that happens with married couples is a tendency to take each other for granted and not appreciate one another. It’s very easy for us to forget to thank God for our spouse, and to forget to thank and appreciate them for the little things they do. Yet we are always quick to point out to children the need to show proper manners by saying Thank You all the time. We always remember to thank and appreciate every one else – the postman, colleagues at work, the lady at the checkout etc. An extreme condition is when couples don’t see the good things about Continue reading
