Some pastoral advice on love and marriage from Richard Baxter in The Godly Home:

“It is a relation of love that you have entered.

God has made it your duty for your mutual help and comfort, that you may be as willing and ready to comfort one another as the hand is to help the eye or other members and that your converse may be sweet and your burdens easy and your lives comfortable.

If love is removed but for an hour between husband and wife, they are as a bone out of joint; there is no ease, no order, no work well done till they are restored and set in joint again.

Therefore, be sure that married love be constantly maintained.”

What a wonderful reminder, Gloria. Thank you! Geoff has very much been a source of comfort and encouragement for me lately, I praise God for such a husband. I praise God for teaching me every day how to be a helper suitable for him.
