We hosted a Date Night here at Oasis. It was so much fun. We had a time of marriage enrichment and then met in our cafe for a wonderful Italian meal and a little music. I have already received thank you cards, emails and facebook posts about how much everyone enjoyed it. It is something that we are certainly going to do more of! We also had childcare available, I think that was part of the reason it was such a big hit!
I realized through talking with these couples that they enjoyed it so much because it had been a long time since they had a night that was just all about them. I want to encourage you to have regular date nights!! It is very important for married couples to have that time to reconnect as a couple. Too many times we are only being moms and dads instead of husbands and wives.
I love our family time with my little guy, but I absolutely adore date nights with my husband because it is all about he and I. That time of reconnection makes for one close mom and dad which our son benefits from maybe more than we will ever even realize. Is your marriage a priority? Marriage is work, I encourage you to start however you can and make your marriage a priority!!!
