FREE Kindle download this week Keep Courting:  100 Ways to Keep Courting After Marriage by Bob and Cheryl Moeller

A gift book! 50 ways to keep courting your husband and 50 ways to keep courting your wife.

Fifty Ways for Women to Keep Courting Their Husbands,
After Marriage:
- Attend an outdoor sporting exhibition show and look through the brochures, with him.
- Write a list of the "Things I Admire Most About My Husband" and tape it to his closet door.

Fifty Ways for Men to Keep Courting Their Wives,
After Marriage:
- Ask her to tell you two things that would make you an easier husband to live with (then work on them).
- Add "I love you" to her calendar on the day of your anniversary, every month. So, if you were married on June 16 (like the Moellers), write" I love you" on the 16th of every month, on her calendar. She'll remember every month how grateful you are to have her, as your wife.

“But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.” Joshua 24:15b

To Court Your Husband:

5.  Feast communion - Andrew

God Calls Us to Feast

When our son, Andrew, was three years old, he attended an evening service that included communion, with us.  As the ushers passed the plate of cracker wafers down our row, Andrew, who hadn't eaten supper yet and thought this was snack time, grabbed a big handful of crackers and shoved them all into his mouth.  We were horrified, the ushers were incensed, and Andrew was satisfied.  Perhaps in his innocence Andrew was closer than any of us in his understanding of the Lord's Table as it was intended to be a feast we are given to enjoy.  And, feast he did (at least it was a feast for a three-year-old.)

1 Corinthians 11:23-26  English Standard Version (ESV)

23 For I received from the Lord what I also delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus on the night when he was betrayed took bread, 24 and when he had given thanks, he broke it, and said, “This is my body which is for[a] you. Do this in remembrance of me.”[b] 25 In the same way also he took the cup, after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.” 26 For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord's death until he comes.
