Wifey Wednesday- Love Dare Journey

I am working through the Love Dare (for the second time) along with Toni and some other blogging gals. It is really helpful to be doing it with other women and have likeminded people holding me accountable in the process.

This week, (I think it was day 8) had us making two lists. One with all the positive attributes of our spouse and the other list with all the things we consider negative about them.

The result of this exercise was really interesting! The first time I did the Love Dare (last summer) I wasn’t in a place where I really appreciated my husband. The list of negative things was rather long. This time I had a difficult time coming up with negative things for the list.

So, this caused me to ponder- what has changed? Has my hubby had an Extreme Makeover:Marriage Edition? While he has certainly grown as a man of God during the trials we have lived through recently, it is not him that has changed. God has changed my heart!

Those negative things on the list from the summer are the same things that get on my nerves today. But, God has allowed me to see my husband through His eyes, appreciate him for all the things that he does for me and the way that he loves me- NO MATTER WHAT. I am blessed and I thank God for changing the way I look at the man that He gave me- because somehow God knew exactly who and what I need. Go figure 🙂

  1. I started the Love Dare last Wednesday, instead of giving something up for Lents 40 days, I figured I would give something for Lent. We watched Fireproof on Valentine’s day and it had such an amazing effect on me, it brought me back to church after being gone for 9 years. God Bless

  2. It is surprising how I feelings can change. A little work on both sides could make life very happy and rewarding.
    Thanks for stopping by my blog.
