    Tonight I sat down thinking that I would just have to admit that I didn't get the dare done today. I have been on the run all day long and couldn't even remember what the dare was for today. I sat down this evening to read it, and realized that...

    Sometimes, I am so confused and so thankful at the same time! This morning as DH was leaving for work, he asked what I had decided about Thanksgiving. I told him that eating out with his family was fine with me. He said, “ oh, I told my daughter...
  • R3D32 Thankful

    I initiated intimacy this evening, and DH obliged. I was a little nervous suggesting it after the discussion we had last night, but with God's help I overcame my case of nerves and asked. I am thankful that DH and I can still share this aspect of...

    Tonight at the dinner table, DH brought up the subject of Thanksgiving. He said he had discussed it with his daughter a couple of weeks ago after I told him I had thought about trying to move out before Thanksgiving. The night that DH told me he had spoken...

    I am having a crisis, and it is of my own doing. Last night, I looked at DH's phone while he was in the shower. On Friday before he left to go hunting, he called his attorney. It was just under a 2 minute phone call right after he left work. They...

    I feel like a failure tonight. I couldn't do all of today's dare. I couldn't say "I love you" to DH. It was easy to pray for him, and to do something tangible to express my love, but the words just wouldn't come, and it's...

    I really wasn't sure what great need to try and meet for DH today. He is always tired and hungry when he and his brother get back into town from a night or two away at the cabin. So, I decided to meet those needs. They usually get back home around...
  • Anxious about the holidays

    I know that God‘s word tells us not to be anxious. But I find myself in what I think is best described as an anxious state. With Thanksgiving less than two weeks away, I have no idea what the plans are. In the past, my husband’s family including...
  • R3D27 Letting go of expectations

    Today a dear friend of mine asked me what I thought the secret to marriage was. At the time, I just shrugged my shoulders. But as I have given that some thought, I believe that today's dare may partially hold the key. Rid the poison of unrealistic...

    I have tried to take responsibility for every area of wrongdoing that I can think of. There are probably many that I have overlooked, but I trust God to reveal them to me as I earnestly seek. I have confessed to both God and DH. Based on the fact that...
  • R3D25 Forgiveness

    • 1 Comments
    I truly believe that working through the first 2 rounds of dares has enabled me to completely forgive DH. In Round 1, my eyes were opened to the fact that God chose to forgive me despite my rejection of Him. I have always known that God forgives, but...

    Lust. I looked back at my earlier rounds, at the things that had been objects of my lust. I had been guilty of many "if only" desires - if only I had an updated house, if only I had a husband that would go to church with me, if only I had my...

    Remove anything that is hindering your relationship. I know that today's dare deals mainly with addictions and outside influences. But this morning, God led me in a slightly different direction. We had a meeting at work this morning during which we...
  • R3D22 Did it in R1 but not today....

    I couldn't bring myself to complete today's dare. What used to be so easy to say is now so difficult, and not because I don't mean it. I told him 4 nights ago that I love him and that I always will. It was the night that he told me he had...
  • R3D21 My soul thirsts for Him

    • 1 Comments
    I won't say that this dare is second nature to me yet, but pretty close. The most evident influence that this trial has had on my life is that it has drawn me to God in a way I've never been drawn before. As Psalm 63:1 says, my soul thirsts for...
  • R3D20 Will I ever learn??

    • 4 Comments
    Dare to take God at His word. That's how today's dare opens up. I have wrestled with that a little bit today. I take God at his word when it comes to my salvation, eternal life, the fact that his plans for his people are good. But the Bible is...

    The more I work through the dares, the more I realize my deep need for God to change my heart and to give me the ability to love. God is using this journey to teach me, mold me, and sanctify me. Difficult? Yes. Worth it?? An even bigger yes. I have been...

    It's long tonight.........Today's dare was hard. I cook dinner for us every night. Knowing that DH met with an attorney today, I really wasn't in the mood to cook dinner. However, I came home from work and cooked dinner even though I didn't...

    I woke up this morning at my usual time, 5:35am. My DH usually gets up about the same time. When I woke up this morning, he was already in the recliner with his coffee, on the phone. I asked what he was doing, and he said that he didn't sleep well...

    • 2 Comments
    Today's dare was about guarding your spouse's secrets, and making them feel safe sharing their struggles. Out of all the dares, this may be the one that has been the most difficult for me. My DH is so private concerning his health. He has had...

    My DH has an appointment with an attorney day after tomorrow. I have only grieved like this one other time in my life, when my dear mother died from cancer 5 years ago. At least when my mama died, I could make sense of it. I can't make sense of this...
  • R3D15 Honor and respect

    • 2 Comments
    Today's dare was to show my DH honor and respect by doing something above my normal routine. I had a hard time figuring something out. I had an opportunity to show greater respect to DH today. While I was at church, DH sent me a text to let me know...

    God is faithful to keep His promises and His grace is truly sufficient. As I went to bed last night, tears streamed down my face. I felt tired, weak, defeated, and hopeless. But as David declares in Psalm 30:5, " Weeping may last through the night...

    I had a hard time finding an activity to do together today. DH went outside to look at the back yard. He planted grass seed in the back yard a week ago today. So, I went outside in cold weather, walking through a very wet yard, to help DH look for new...

    Tonight I reviewed the personal rules to fight by that I wrote during round 1. We haven't had an argument since I wrote them. I have been thinking a lot about what I wrote last night, about DH keeping his disagreements to himself. I am praying that...
