beautifully rooted || date night.

In our home, every Friday night is date night.

We go out to dinner, see a movie, browse at the bookstore, order pizza, grab dessert, watch the latest offering on Netflix, attend “First Friday” art festivals, head out on mini road trips… What we actually wind up doing often depends on our mood, on what kind of week we’ve had and what kind of weekend we need. The plans may change, but the stamp on the calendar remains.

Friday night is date night.

It’s good practice, I think, regardless of whether we have children right now. One day, when we do have little ones to take care of, Jordan and I will be in the habit of spending time together. We will know what it means to — in the middle of a busy week and life — take purposeful time out of our schedules and dedicate it to each other.

What I’m learning, though, is that I’ve got another date night in my life I’m equally dedicated to.

Just read your full post on Beautifully Rooted and I LOVED it! Just so inspiring. I seriously need to start date nights with my husband AND the Lord! Such a creative idea with the prayer journal--- I'm really going to do that! And I googled BSF because I didn't know what it was... and there are classes in my area! What's it like?
