Well, I had to stretch a little bit in order to complete today's dare. I had a hard time coming up with a recent example of how DH showed Christian character in a noticeable way.  He did make me laugh today, and I told him that he was funny and that I appreciated his sense of humor.  Not exactly what I was going for, but my mind just drew a blank.  When I think of him exhibiting Christian character, kindness comes to mind.  But my mind drew a blank at a specific recent example.

He took the day off from work and went to the hunting cabin with his brother and two guys his brother goes to church with.  I helped him do some packing before he left.  Actually, he asked me to help him.  We had a good morning together.  He called me later in the morning before he left to let me know about how he was leaving some things in the house.  I sent him a text around the time I thought he should be getting to the farm to make sure he made it ok.  He drove by himself.  He called me to tell me he was almost there, and we talked for the next 15 minutes until he got there.  We talked about Thanksgiving menu plans and where he was going to hunt from on the farm.  I really didn't know if I would hear from him tonight, but he called me after they ate dinner.  He told me that he had contacted all his family members about the Thanksgiving plans and some other small talk.  It's really strange, but in the last week, I have felt closer to him than I have in a very, very long time.  Maybe it's just that he's in a better mood since hunting season opened last week!  Seriously, I feel like we have interacted more like friends this past week than we have in a very long time.  Looking back, I think things began to go downhill around Christmas last year.  Several times today when I would think about the positive interaction that he and I have had this week, I stopped and thanked God, because it is truly Him that has made it possible.  
  • I think that the LD really shows us how to love more like Jesus loves us.  And through doing the dares the best you could, you have gained a new level to love as you are to love.  And this is why you feel closer to him now.  Yes, him softening has brought about the closeness feeling as well, but God is building a new character in you that your husband sees and this is opening the door to a stronger unity with him than you ever had before.

    Your husband still has free will.  Pray he has God's will in his life.
