Here’s another Date Night idea:

“Buy index cards. Individually write out your high-points and low points for the week. Take time to share and pray over the items on your cards. This is a great weekly discipline to build spiritual intimacy. Discuss: – When do you feel closest to God? – When do you feel the farthest from God? – What can I pray about for you? What can we pray about together?” (From the Growthtrac Ministry)

And then here’s a twist on an “oldie but a goodie.” Plan a movie date together in the privacy of your own home, adding a little extra smooching and loving while you’re doing it.

Remember, and keep remembering (and doing something about this):

“Saying ‘I do’ doesn’t mean you’re done! Nobody ever put gas in a car and expected it to run for years. But lots of couples are running on emotional fumes. Truth is, if you’re not dating your spouse, your relationship is running out of gas.” (Rosberg)

And what a shame if you don’t have to “run out of gas.” Infuse energy into your marriage and date each other.
