Thanks and Gratitude for a Better Marriage

The Bible talks a good deal about gratitude and thankfulness. Makes me think God knew something about brain science long before we did!

Thanks and Gratitude for a Better Marriage

Even small acts of gratitude have measurable effects on the brain. Practising gratitude regularly changes how we think and feel. It changes how we see ourselves and how we see those around us, and it has powerful, positive effects on our relationships.

What makes this difficult is gratitude doesn’t come easy. Our brains are aimed at protecting us, and that causes us to see the worse in people so as to be aware of potential danger. Learning to see the good takes intentional effort. 

I suggest you start a daily time of gratitude. Take a few minutes to think about all the good things in your life, and write those things down. Be sure to look for the good in your husband and blessings from your marriage. If you do this daily your outlook on life will change!

~ Paul – I’m XY, and I am so grateful for my wonderful wife!

I really think a danger of marriage is that we take each other for granted. Each one of us is as Chesterton once said “A great Might-Not-Have-Been.” None of us was promised to one another. We gave ourselves in a promise to one another. We should celebrate we have someone in our lives every day.
