Do you remember your first date? What was your most memorable date? We all remember those dates when the excitement is so high that you never want it to end. This is how our dates with our spouse should be. Dating is so much fun.
I know, just like you know, finding time in your hectic schedule of work, kids, church, and social responsibility is almost nearly impossible.
