Scripture: “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11

Marriage Activity: Bed and Breakfast
It is the perfect time of year to book a night at a Bed and Breakfast. You can go local or far away. Take your time together and make the most of it. Even if you only get one night, that only ups the importance. Every second counts. Sometimes we forget that in marriage.
