    Day 13—Love Fights Fair

    “Talk with your spouse about establishing healthy rules of engagement. If your mate is not ready for this, then write out your own personal rules to ‘fight’ by. Resolve to abide by them when the next disagreement occurs.”

    Another chapter I could have used one to two months ago during the endless fights and disagreements we had - better late than never though. For this dare, I am writing out my own personal rules to ‘fight’ by from this day forward—

    *Listen wholeheartedly and with an open mind

    *Be slow to speak

    *Practice patience

    *Speak gently

    *Take responsibility for my own shortcomings

    *Do not be afraid to stand up for myself when needed in a respectful way

    *Do my best to not to bring up the past maliciously


    I believe with the peace God has given me this last week, I am much more able to do the above successfully. I could have gotten very upset when my husband told me he was moving out and leaving me with the house, but I didn’t. I listened to what he had to say, told him I did not think that was right, gave him some suggestions, and let him chew on it. Even when he tried to tell me the divorce and house was my fault, I was slow to speak. In all honesty, I do not feel anger, and have not since the moment he told me he wanted a divorce. I feel so blessed with the preparation, protection, and patience God has given me. Every day I wake I look forward to growing more in my walk and doing what He wants me to do. The anxiousness of making sure I am home to not miss an opportunity of seeing my husband is diminishing. Today I felt a joy I haven’t felt in a long time. I have had spurts of it throughout the week, but today it really hit me. Thank you God for your daily strength and comfort!
