Last month our youngest daughter got married to a kind and gentle man. It was easier letting her go knowing she was in good hands as was he.  The house is feeling quieter and slowly we are becoming empty nesters with two of them married and living out of town. 
But after the wedding and all the highs of a celebration like a wedding comes marriage and those of us who have been married know that the most wonderful relationships will experience their challenges. Our blog is a place we share our recipes, I would like to share with you a recipe for a happy marriage based on .... 

Philippians 2

Therefore if you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any common sharing in the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind.  Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.
 In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus: 

This recipe is not only good served in a marriage, but any relationships. May you enjoy much joy in your relationships with this recipe. I hope you give it a try.
