Love Dare - Day 1 Love is Patient

 
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 to your spouse at all. If the temptation arises, choose not to say anything. It’s better to hold your tongue than to say something you’ll regret

Love Dare

Marriages go through their ups and downs as does mine. Even though in our home we have made choices and stuck by them, people can change their minds and do whats best in that moment. Love Dare is used often in my homes as a tool to remember what it takes to make it work. Doesn't mean it will be all perfect after that, but it does give a great stepping stone to being better. I sat and prayed and thought about the best way i could better serve my marriage, maybe remember why i am in it for 10 years, and over look the choices i have made good and bad. Those who know me really well know exactly what choices i make and that i stand behind them. With that said i am making a choice now.

Time ... Wait Whats That ????


There are those moments in life were you have to admit your mom was right. I never thought the day would come where these words would come out of my mouth, but let me tell you, when it comes to making enough time out of a little time ... well she was right !!

Everyone has the same amount of time each day, 24 hours! It is how we each as individuals choose to use our time. Do we sleep the day away, do chores in our homes, go to school, work a full-time job, maybe even two or three jobs, or even nothing at all? I know i stretch my time thin. I try to get whatever i can done in a day, and other days i get nothing done at all.

Time is time. You can not make more of it, cannot rewind it, trade it for better times, or wish time would go away. It is here to stay ... promise!
