When God talks to His people, there are a fair number of references to “remembering.” Everything from remembering what He has done in your life to remembering His promises to remembering His sacrifice on the cross and resurrection.

I remember the days of old; I meditate on all that you have done; I ponder the work of your hands. Psalm 143:5 ESV

There are also a couple of verses that talk about remembering people.

I thank my God in all my remembrance of you. Philippians 1:3 ESV

I think the important thing here is the “remembering” part. We tend to forget the good when we are overwhelmed by the bad or the difficult. In the Old Testament, God gave His people holidays to help them remember (like Passover) and we have a few helps in the New Testament too, like taking communion with others to help us remember Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross.

Let’s take the day to remember.

Remember the things that God has done in your life and, as a marriage focus, remember the good times you’ve had with your spouse and the good qualities of your spouse.

Paul and I recently talked about all the good times we had while RVing (we traveled around the US for about nine months). It was so fun and now we’re dreaming a bit about more travel (shorter runs, probably by car).
