    Today is 9/20/18.Slow and quiet day when it comes to Erika. I did pick her up a small gift, but she didn't get it yet. It is a Harry Potter cookbook, I left it for her in the mail slot. We will see when she decides to get her mail and find it along...

    Today is 9/19/18. I had to break radio silence today to attempt the dare. I decided my act of kindness would be inviting Erika to get Chipotle for dinner with me, so I called her. Too bad she had just got food for dinner 5 minutes before I called! Oh...

    Today is 9/18/18. I have become far more patient in the previous rounds. I have learned to just roll with things as they come. As for the dare today, well that was easy for sure..... we didn't even talk at all today. Not a single text or anything...

    Today is 9/16/18. Today's dare just hurts to complete. I am going deeper and deeper in while I believe she is walking further away. I am still all in with her though, just is not too fun giving and giving just to be rejected over and over. I put it...

  • 9/14/18 - Day 77 - Love Still Agrees in Prayer

    • 2 Comments
    Today is 9/14/18. Prayer is something that is becoming much more natural to me now. There is a routine that I have developed that is working well for me. The downside of it though is that my prayers fall into a routine, meaning it is the same information...

    Today is 9/13/18. I have made reading the Bible a daily activity already at this point. What I enjoy about the Bible is the Word of God is applicable to even my own situations today. I am beginning to really enjoy reading now though, previously I felt...

    • 2 Comments
    Today is 9/11/18. The dare for today was just not possible for me to complete. I just do not have enough information about her activities recently to comment on a Christian act. All of our conversations are shallow and brief. So what I decided to do is...

    Today is 9/10/18. So I really was up in the air all day about the dare, not sure what to really do, so I waited until almost 10:00 PM to call and complete it. I asked for her input about moving the stone bird bath to a new location in the yard, yeah a...

    Today is 9/9/18. There really is nothing I can do for this dare. We were only bound by flesh and not to mention she is 1000 miles away today anyway! So I took today and elected to have an additional prayer session for Erika. Prayer is far more effective...

    Today is 9/7/18. Love requires unity and one of the biggest thing that is separating us currently is faith. Faith is also the single most important thing in life. Without the Lord, if we were to ever get married, we wouldn't enter into a covenant...

    Today is 9/4/18.Expectations only lead to getting upset. I would prefer to have the idea of hoping for things, but not planning for them. An example is tomorrow night. She has been invited over before she goes to Florida on Thursday morning. If she shows...

    Today is 9/3/18. Asking for forgiveness is actually more difficult for me than forgiving. The latter, I have the power to forgive, where as in the former, the power is all in the hands of the other party. Asking for true forgiveness requires faith in...

    Today is 9/2/18. Forgiving is a challenge for almost everyone. For some reason though, I never really had that big of a problem with it. Maybe I was never pushed hard enough to not be able to.This round I faced something that is hard to forgive... even...
