Love Dare - Dare 7 Love Believes the Best

Day 7: Love believes the best

[Love] believes all things, hopes all things.
—1 Corinthians 13:7
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.
Reflections:I did not want to do this one. I do not have a clue why but I didn't. I found myself having such an attitude with everyone today. Was it because I wasn't feeling well or because I knew I had something to do and I was avoiding it.

To make a list of all the good things is an easy list. To make a list of the negatives is heart crushing. All the hard work he has done, all the things he has let go, and all the things we moved on from.

So I sat to do these list, the good and the bad ones even if it killed me. I have picked one positive attribute and will thank him tomorrow for it through out the day. The list are put away and I will visit them when the dare calls for it. Dares may not always be easy but needed.
