  “Money can’t buy you love.”—The Beatles

 “Intimate relationships, as opposed to intimate experiences, are the result of planning. They are built. The sense of union that comes with genuine spiritual closeness will not just happen. If it is present, it is because of definite intent and follow-through on your part. You choose to invest, and do. It’s not left to mere chance.”-- Donald R. Harvey

Colossians 3:19, Matthew 5:37; 1 Corinthians 7:5


1 Peter 3:7

“Discover what delights your partner and then make those delights happen in many different, creative ways. Even the way you express your love to your partner each day can be varied and innovative. If your spouse can predict what you will say, how you will respond, what kind of gift you will give on special occasions, then you are in a romantic rut.”-- H. Norman Wright
