Day 54: Love takes delight

Enjoy life with the wife you love all the days of your fleeting life. —Ecclesiastes 9:9 HCSB

TODAY’S DARE

Purposefully neglect an activity you would normally do so you can spend quality time with your spouse. Do something he or she would love to do or a project they’d really like to work on. Just be together.

--I’ve thought a lot about this dare beyond just today. I’ve thought about the future with MB and what we would do together to spend quality time with each other since that was lacking before she moved out. I have already realized what used-up a lot of time both physically and mentally and I believe it was God doing that work in me. I believe a lot had to do with my focus/commitment on my career/job, which took away my priority on my marriage and God. I now prioritize to do something with my wife (if she was with me), kids, etc. and enjoy the time together. She liked decorating around the house, so I imagine us doing that together again. I imagine us working in the yard together again. I imagine us going on real dates together again. In all honesty, I would do anything together again with her at this point.   Did not get a chance to do this dare with MB...nothing really came my way to do anything fitting.  Her avoiding me makes doing these types of dares hard. 

 

  • If/when she comes back, take it easy stepping into doing things together.  We often try to bring their car up to ours (read schumura's journals, Sean, if you aren't sure what that means.) and get them to do more than they are ready to do with us. So, if/when she comes back or starts giving you some leeway to talk to her, just be careful and realize that giving her space is what helped bring her back. And getting in her space may again push her back again.  I know, this is all future stuff.  

  • Great point!  Thank you for that!  

    I do look forward to having those types of challenges.
