Inspiration for Today - 22 Nov 11

What moments in life filled you with enjoyment?

After work this afternoon, my wife and I chose to visit a local mall. We had not been to the Arundal Mills mall yet, which is only a few miles from our home. Though I admit I'm not as drawn to the malls as my wife, I thought it would be a nice place to check out.

For the next 3 hours, we walked around and explored the new shopping mall. It was astounding to see the size of this mall. There were even outlets stores which I had only experienced at outlet specific malls or plazas. While shopping in one of the stores, I remembered that I needed to call my nephew Jackson to wish him a Happy Birthday. He was ecstatic to hear another Happy Birthday wish and it was cool to chat with him and his little brother Jamison.

Later, my wife and I chose to have dinner at Chevy's Restaurant, a tex-mex style restaurant, which was pretty interesting. Afterwards, back out to explore some more.

Towards the end, we discovered a Lego store. Neither of us had ever seen an actual Lego store. The inner children within us rekindled the fond memories of building stuff out of these incredible plastic bricks.

On the way home, my wife and I both said to each other that we had enjoyed the wonderful time together and had cherished the moments together.

Are there times in your life, perhaps even in your relationship, where you take time to simply enjoy one anothers company? There are times when we become complacent or simply want left alone, however, it's great to know and enjoy the company of your loved one.

"God, grant us the wisdom to enjoy the fellowship of our beloved husband/wife. I also ask the you encourage and strengthen our relationship as we strengthen our relationship with You. I pray this is the name of Jesus, my Savior. Amen!"
