I had lunch with my mother-in-law early last week...I asked her for a refund, she suggested I Pray...
I don't talk about mr gp aka not sawyer aka Eric much...He is a good man and wonderful dad but at times lacking in the husband department. I love him yet sometimes wonder if I am still in love with him. Without going into the personal details of our marriage I will just say we have some serious ups and downs...
So I rented the movie Fireproof-no the acting isn't stellar but this is a movie with a message and the message was POWERFUL.
I saw parts of myself in both the main characters Caleb and Catherine, I watched with an open mind and had no expectations, by the end of the movie I was sobbing and knew I must do something-I am tired of going through the motions as my life pasts me by...so at 1am I dared myself to take The Love Dare A 40-day experiment.
This isn't about changing Eric-this is about changing myself- up there when I said he was lacking in the husband dept, well I am lacking in the wife dept-this movie made me take a long, hard look at myself and I didn't like what I saw.
So once a week I will be posting a Love Dare-if you want to follow along and perhaps apply the Love Dare to your life feel free to... the comment box will be open for discussions OR if you are doing this on your blog leave me a link so I can come and support you...
Have you seen the movie? What did you think?
Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. --Ephesians 4:2 NIV
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.
My confession for today: It's time to turn into a Stylist...Winter Formal is here...Pictures will be posted tonight
