Here it is Aug. 10th. 21 more days til the “Love Dare” Challenge ends.
I am finding myself two weeks behind. 12 days to be exact. Yes, I’m still on Day 7. At first, for about the first few days I was stuck. This challenge is a tough one for me. Especially in light of all that took place around that time. But for the second week that followed there was a lot going on. Too much. I couldn’t concentrate on the task. Had to take a Pause.
I have to admit to you all, I’m a little disappointed that I did not go straight through. But I am still excited and motivated to finish what I’ve began. I was able to get away this past weekend, just me and my husband. We went away on a business retreat. And I have to tell you, it was a blessing. Those 2.5 days allowed me to see my husband in a new light. It helped me to now be able to write out the list Day 7 requires.
So, here we are, Tuesday, August 10th and I’m on Day 7. Getting back in the game. Looking forward to the finish line.
I’m thankful and excited about the next 33 days. I look forward to the shift in my marriage as I allow the Lord to open me up and pour in. “A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies…” -Proverbs 31:10
For today’s dare, get two sheets of paper. On the first one, spend a few minutes writing out positive things about your spouse. Then do the same with negative things on the second sheet. Place both sheets in a secret place for another day. There is a different purpose and plan for each. At some point during the remainder of the day, pick a positive attribute from the first list and thank your spouse for having this characteristic.
If you’re only reading the dare, you’re missing out. Even if you’re actually doing it wholeheartedly. YOU MUST PURCHASE THE BOOK! There is so much more to this process than just carrying out the task alone. The evolution comes from the rest of the information that goes along with each Dare. It’s the “Why’s” that you miss out on when you don’t have the book. The basic principles are lost. You can purchase the book by visiting my “What I’m Readin'” Carousel on the right. Just click on The Love Dare book. It will change your life and marriage forever.
