Top Ten!! The First in a VERY Long Time

It has been a very, very long time since I posted a list of the top ten (in my opinion) marriage posts from the week. You see, I stopped publishing the list quite a while ago because it became a bit cumbersome to crank out a list every week.

Then, through a series of devastating events, our young daughter passed from this world into the arms of Jesus. She was our joy in her very short life, and now she is breathing easy and running in the cool heavenly breeze for eternity.

So I stopped.

And you know what? I also stopped reading, learning, growing as a Christian husband.

So, publishing the "top ten" list has in fact been a means by which I have grown as a Christian.
I am not by any means guaranteeing that I will publish this list each and every week (as you know by your own reading, there are weeks when nothing strikes your fancy.

Anyway, without further ado, here are the (unranked) top ten marriage blog posts from this week, in no particular order.
