  1. Thank you for the post. I wrote a blog post about how people tend to serve others better than they do their own spouses, but it was lost and I didn't make a back up copy. I'm so glad you guys put it out there. There are so many times when I catch myself being rotten with people at home when I wouldn't dream of treating friends/church members/strangers that way. I think I need to listen to this one on a regular basis.

  2. Nina, I am guilty of that myself. I tend to get into the mindset especially with the kids. I am working harder now to have an attitude of service with them as well. Thanks for the comment.

  3. One of the areas my wife and I have down pretty well (though we do have our moments) is serving each other. My primary love language is acts of service, and that's the secondary for my wife, so serving comes pretty naturally. In fact, sometimes, when there's tension, we even use serving as a sort-of “coping mechanism.” For example, I know she's upset about something, but I don't know what and she doesn't really want to talk about it right then. So, I'll do the dishes and make dinner.

    We also like to serve others together. To that end, I want to share something with you guys. We're coming up on our 10th anniversary, and we'll be going to Orlando, FL on vacation to celebrate. While we're there, we're going to spend a day volunteering at Give Kids the World. We're also trying to raise money & supplies to take with us to donate to them on behalf of ourselves and our friends & family.

    I ask that you take a few minutes to check out my new blog. My first (and so far only) post is about what Give Kids the World is, what we're doing, and how others can help us help them. You can find it at http://www.FaithandtheMagicKingdom.net.

    Thanks!

  4. Randy – This is so cool how you use acts of service in your marriage. It's really neat to hear that you recognize the tension and instead of being defensive or attacking you choose to serve. I'm sure this helps ease the tension much quicker.

    I love how you serve together as well. That has to be an amazing connection the two of you have when you are working together on the same team helping others who are less fortunate than yourselves. I'm looking forward to hearing about how your 10th anniversary goes, congratulations, and how your volunteering for Give Kids the World.

    Blessings my friend and have a wonderful time.
