Marriage changes everything. One flesh. Walk as one. Keep a passion for oneness.
As soon as i woke up I read today's dare right away. Husband told me that he was coming over to cut the grass today, but it was raining so I assumed i wouldn't see him.
Ding-Dong! Husband shows up! Huh? He said that when he left his place it wasn't raining, but started as he drove over. I just jumped into the dare.
My leaving issue (or what i thought it was) was that i spent too much time with my family and that I never legally changed my last name to my husbands.
I was happy to see my husband this a.m. so i was making jokes and saying that I did some more thinking about area's where i could have been a better wife and said that I spent too much time w/ my family and not enough time here with you ... he said " i didn't think so" then i said I finally received our marriage licence in the mail and now I can legally become Mrs. Last name ... he laughed and said "congratulations "
I was making some breakfast so he said he would have some. We started talking about my car and he checked the oil and then went to the store to buy more oil and topped it up. It was a loving gesture. We talked and it was so comfortable today. We hugged and i kissed him.
I asked him if he wants to come over sometime for a party in the back yard, just him and I - I said we can have ppl over but I would rather just have a party with you and me ... ((we have a beautiful yard w/ pond - we've hosted so many gatherings here, but lately i realized that husband and I never did get a lot of alone time)
I am wondering if I should go -ahead and start changing my name on some of my legal documents i.e. licence, health card etc ... Also thinking that because my husband didn't think either of those "leaving" issues were ever a concern for him - maybe I got this one wrong??? I will take a walk and pray ...
Funny how the dare sometimes works out in a different way than we think right away huh? This shows us alot of times we just need to step out of His way and let Him show us how to walk.
Dont focus on your husbands response to your dare........it doesnt matter....this is about you remember? If after praying you feel this is what to do, then do it........
Just change the name on the top of this entry and bam you've got an entry from Jenn. LoL...though I did legally change my name I kept my maiden name as a middle name. It was HARD for me to let go of my maiden name as it was, so that was my compromise. This journey has opened my eyes to the leave and cleave issues with my family...I believe I have come a long way... to the point where I did NOT run to my parents during our separation...I stayed in our house alone...though I still battle these issues to an extent...I've mentioned before we are always a work in progress. ; ) I can't tell you one way or another whether completing the dare is changing your name on everything or not...only He can, so yes - be still and listen. He will let you know. At this point it may be a baby step forward with it all...not the whole shabang...I do think in time it will be, but He prepares us for those big shabangs even if we don't think we are.
Remember the dares are not about the response, so don't go doubting yourself.
