Family Tagline

We received a Christmas card from some of our friends with beautiful pictures of the family and a lovely note. At the bottom, after they signed their names, it read:

Better ~ Together ~ Forever

It was a tag line for the family! Both Hubs and I were struck by it--by its simplicity and its power to so concisely state the values of the family. We thought, "Huh, that's cool. We should think of one for ourselves." Then we promptly got on with life, and didn't think much more about it.

Well, the other day, I was inspired to make the new masthead for this blog when I read Proverbs 3:3--

Don't lose your grip on Love and Loyalty.
Tie them around your neck; carve their initials on your heart.

Love and Loyalty are definitely two values that we want to define our marriage. And then it came to us:

Love and Loyalty for a Lifetime! 

That is our desire for our marriage.

I added one more heart to the existing duet, and our newly adopted family tagline is now framed in our living room to remind us of the values we want our marriage to embody.

Very cool! And not only a good tagline for a marriage, but also one for when you have kids as well. Of course they'll get love, but loyalty towards your kid is important too. It's easy to nod and wink over their heads at another adult (I've been guilty of that one), when really, what they need is to know that you are on their side, always.

As always, you get me thinking. :)
