I had the opportunity today to spend the morning with my wife, Olivia, by flexing my work schedule to accommodate for a late night at work. We never pass an opportunity to spend time together during the week because we realize that our tax dollars provide our children with an education and a babysitter from 8am to 3pm, Monday through Friday. This is one of the few times I appreciate compulsory education laws, but that is a rant for another time.

So, what have we done so far? Well, we kicked off the morning by sending the kids off to school followed by an hour of preparing about 270 brochures to promote The Weekend to Remember Marriage Getaway. This is nothing, we still need to prepare another 500 brochures for three weekends in a row of promoting Weekend to Remember at three different churches.
Why would we spend the morning of our date day to work on promoting an event that we’ve already attended four times in five years? The fact is that we have been called to encourage other couples to work on and strengthen their own marriages with every opportunity they can. The Weekend to Remember Marriage Getaway is one of those opportunities, and it only comes to Corpus Christi once a year. We often hear about couples that have drifted apart or wished there was something out there that would teach people how to have a healthy, happy, loving marriage. Well, we’ve had it all along with the Bible, and the Weekend to Remember event is pretty much the Cliff’s Notes on what the Bible says about marriage. It is relevant to today’s culture, and it meets couples where they are whether they are struggling or they think everything is just fine. We encourage you to check out the links in this post and share it with your friends and family, your neighbors, and your co-workers. Anyone who is married or engaged should attend at least once every couple of years.
Oh, don’t worry, we are still going to get the most out of date day. Liv is taking me to a place in Corpus Christi called Ghengis Grill for some Mongolian-style food. I am excited.
