40 Day Challenge, Day 10: Fun!

The Holiday, mr napkin head

Begin with the Prayer of Abandonment.

Today’s theme is “fun”!

Remember “Mr. Napkinhead” from the movie The Holiday? (A good date night movie!) Are you a “fun” person? Are you someone people seek out for lunch dates, happy hours, weekend card games? Or do you sometimes wish you were more like that?

Having a “fun buddy” — a friend with whom you share a common interest, someone who makes you laugh and see the lighter side of life — can be good for a marriage if it helps you to return energized and better able to embrace your vocation.

Don’t overlook the potential fun you can be enjoying in marriage, too! Have fun and enjoy each other in all kinds of ways, flirty and playful and not the least bit serious. Dress up or down; express your artistic side with face paint or fresh strawberries and cream; take a relaxing bubble bath or indulge in a sensual massage. If actual sex is, for whatever reason, not in the cards . . . it’s still important to connect, physically as well as emotionally. Snuggle up or neck on the couch after the kids are in bed.That’s good for marriage! Don’t forget to be each other’s favorite playmate(even during Lent)!

What are you going to do for fun today?
