After nearly 35 years, we don't fight anymore; however, there were times. We both learned early on where the "belt line" was and how to hit beneath it. We also decided (by God's grace) not to do it--ever. Stick to the issues, express your feelings, but never attack the person. I'm grateful that we had some good counselors early on.

DH is much better at this than I am, as he's almost always lovable, while I'm.....sometimes not~ :-/

Especially now, while I'm recuperating and need so much extra help. I'm not really in a position to DO anything extra special for him. But we're having lots of extra time together these days and have had lots of time to just chat and plan and visit.

[Love] believes all things, hopes all things.
—1 Corinthians 13:7

TODAY’S DARE

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.

LOL Don't most of us already know these things? I'm sure I do--but I'll have to ask him anyway, just to comply with the terms of the challenge.

1-my temper
2-my impatience
3-my short fuse......wait-a-minute...these are probably all the same one, right? lol

Oh, and he hates being late and I'm nearly always trying to do "one more thing" before leaving the house.

Well, I am jumping in late, but I know what I am going to buy my husband. Undershirts. He always buys them himself, but his are in really bad shape--deoderant stains and I think he will be happy to find a drawer full of bright white shirts when he gets out of the shower.

I couldn't do it that day and not today, but I will do it on "errand day". We are trying to get back on track from the ice storm. Just got all the food back in the fridge!

I always try not to say negative things - my Mom is the epitome of Negativity .. nothing is ever good enough or done the right way unless she does it.. so..

I did one nice thing for dh yesterday - no details .. teeheee! ;)

Today he's gone again .. so I will have to wait til he comes home for the next couple of dares. I gotta say it's hard to buy him stuff, he's a clothes horse, but likes what he buys for himself best! He's not a techie .. or a toolie .. {sigh} at least I'll have a couple days to find him something!! lol

CONFESSION TIME.....
....I don't have a difficult time demonstrating these things toward my husband, but get very impatient with my teenager! She's a good girl--really, very good; however, she seems to be COMPELLED to argue or disagree with anything I say and always wants to have the last word. It's like it's some kind of competition for her--and I find it to be disrespectful (something for which I HAVE no patience!).

Granted, DH went back to work yesterday after spending my initial post-op days at home and I'm missing his company and cheerful helpfulness. My patience is at a rather low point anyway and I'm probably letting self pity creep in. Quick--pray for me before I throw a crutch! LOL--just joking~

I didn't see this until today, but I want to jump in. I have to say that I wasn't patient at all yesterday, so I am glad I get a chance for today.

Thanks for putting this out there. I hope all of you are having a great day.

I failed at not saying anything negative yesterday, so i'm glad it's on there to do it again. maybe i can get it right (or at least better) today. I'm much better at doing nice things than speaking nice things. Wonder why??

Well, I think I did the kindness one first. Dh requested a new ink insert for his stamper, scotch tape, and new reading glasses all on the same day. I gave him my tape, added ink to his stamper, and bought the glasses. I'm still working on patience... It is about that TOM, and I'm thinking my lack of exercise is helping keep me stressed. lol Off to do my walk today!!

emoticonDay 2: Love is kind

Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you.

—Ephesians 4:32

TODAY’S DARE

In addition to saying nothing negative to your spouse again today, do at least one unexpected gesture as an act of kindness.

This isn't even a challenge for me--my husband is truly a prince! I'm not always very patient, though--especially now while I'm on crutches and need so much help. I'll have to think of something special that I can do/say to reiterate how much I appreciate him.

Oh, yeah! I'm there! The first one will be pretty difficult for me, though, because I've done alot of negative talk today and it's almost that TOM, which makes my fuse a little shorter. I'm excited for a "dare" to change it, though.

Sounds great. I started the Love Dare 22 days ago with Family Life but I would still love to participate.

emoticon Since the movie Fireproof was released today, I thought we could start our dare for Valentine's Day now!

I dare you to do something special for your husband and/or family each day to show them you love them, and to share what you've done in this thread. Let's show 'em we love 'em, right up til Valentine's Day when we do something really special for them --which is probably pretty common for you, right? ;)

I'll try to share a love dare from the book/journal each day to give us some new thoughts/ideas. We'll run through Valentine's Day --or the end of the February if you want to. There are 40 days of dares in the book. :) emoticon


emoticon Day 1: Love is patient

Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.
—Ephesians 4:2 NIV
TODAY’S DARE
The first part of this dare is fairly simple. Although love is communicated in a number of ways, our words often reflect the condition of our heart. For the next day, resolve to demonstrate patience and to say nothing negative [...]
