Have you ever tried to build a marriage with bricks? Encouraging words might help you do that. Today’s post is from a guest writer–my husband, Larry: “To encourage or ‘edify’ literally means ‘to build a home.’ The writer of Proverbs said wisely, ‘A word aptly spoken is like apples of gold in settings of silver’ (Proverbs 25:11, NIV). As you edify your mate, you are constructing your marriage, building a rock-solid foundation for your home out of love and consideration. How do you do that? Below, you’ll find four bricks to help you build a marriage that lasts.
Christmas was the night of miracles, when the long-awaited Savior was born. The Good News of His birth has been passed down for generations–the story that never grows old. We can add nothing to that story, but there is one legend that offers a sweet twist to what might have happened on that divine night of miracles.
