Collaborate without boundaries
  • Why do I second guess myself constantly??!!!

    I hope that I just did the right thing. My husband mentioned to me before he left for work this morning that his company has reinstated the company picnic. Up until last year, the company had always done a picnic at a local amusement park. They provided...
  • R2D21 Love is satisfied in God

    • 1 Comments
    Today's dare says to be intentional about making time to pray and read my Bible. This is something that I do everyday. Doing so speaks truth into my life to combat the lies that Satan tries to put into my head. It also draws me into God's presence...
  • R2D20 Jesus loves me, this I know

    • 1 Comments
    Dare 20. Half way through round 2. This journey is teaching me and giving me just a taste of what it is like for God to love us in spite of our rejection. Phil 2:5-8 says "Make your attitude that of Christ Jesus, who existing in the form of God,...
  • R2D19 God makes all things possible

    • 4 Comments
    Love truly is impossible without God. Oh, I thought that I "loved" DH, but it was my own interpretation of the word, and not God's interpretation as revealed in His word. The biggest revelation that I have learned on this journey so far...

    I praise God for helping me to come up with ideas for the dares and for giving me the courage to do them. God is an ever-present help. As I read over the dare this morning, I just didn't know quite how I would do it this evening. I cook dinner for...
  • R2D17 Secrets vs Sisters

    • 3 Comments
    Dare 17 has made for a challenging day. I have not been good at guarding DH's secrets. He is an extremely private person, which has made it difficult for me. For example, last year, he didn't want me to tell anyone that he had a stroke. He hadn't...
  • R2D16 Love intercedes

    • 1 Comments
    Love intercedes. Jesus is at the right hand of God, interceding for us. In His unconditional love for me, He is interceding on my behalf. This is my example. In my attempt to love DH unconditionally, I must intercede on his behalf. As part of today's...
  • R2D15 A humble heart is one that honors

    • 1 Comments
    I don't feel that I did very good with this dare today. I remember feeling the same way during Round 1. I think that instead of being something that you do for just a day, it is rather an ongoing attitude of respect. The only way that I knew of to...
  • R2D14 Grateful, Hopeful, and Fearful

    • 2 Comments
    Well, today has been a day of ups and downs. I have to start with last night. As I was walking through the den headed for the back room, my husband said that he was fixing to watch a movie on Netflix and asked if I wanted to watch it too. So I put my...
  • R2D13 All's fair in love and war!

    • 1 Comments
    My mother used to say "All's fair in love and war." I am not even sure what she meant by that, but I happened to think of that as I was working on today's dare! I sure do miss my mom, but I am so glad that I will be reunited with her...
  • R2D12 Let him win?? Help!

    • 3 Comments
    My husband and I don't have many disagreements at all, especially right now that we aren't really talking about anything substantive. However, there is one thing that in the past has been a major sticking point with me. We did wills before we...
  • R2D11 I tried.....

    • 5 Comments
    My attempt at the dare today was pretty lame! The dare for day 11 differs between what is online and what is in the book, even though they are both about cherishing our spouses. The book suggests giving your spouse a touch that says you cherish them,...

    I had a hard time figuring out what to do for today's dare. I help with his laundry from time to time so I didn't feel that was anything very special. I really had a hard time coming up with something out of the ordinary. I finally decided to...
  • R2D9 Dare completed in a "sweet" way!

    • 3 Comments
    Well, I decided that when I got home from work this evening, I would greet DH with a term that I haven't used in a couple of months - Sweetie. He has seemed anything but sweet the past couple of months. So when I got home, I said "Hi, Sweetie...
  • R2D9 Anxious about the "greeting" tomorrow

    • 3 Comments
    As I read over tomorrow's dare tonight (I read them at bedtime for the next day), I feel confused and anxious. Every night as I head to bed, I tell my DH goodnight. And every night, he just silently lifts his hand and kinda waves it at me, never even...
  • R2D8 Love is not jealous, even of the dog!

    • 3 Comments
    I was more than happy to dispose of the "negative" list today. During Round 1, even though I didn't mind burning the list, I read it over a few extra times before I did. I am glad that I can't even remember what was on it now. I did...
  • R2D7 Believing the best rather than Satan's lies!

    • 1 Comments
    It was very easy to make a list of DH's positive attributes. It was much harder to make the list of negative attributes. And the list of positives WAY outnumbers the list of negatives. It was that way during Round 1 also. In fact, I was trying to...
  • R2D6 Thank God for forgiveness

    • 2 Comments
    For today's dare, I asked God to reveal to me areas in which I need to add margin to my life. I asked this in round 1 too, but I really haven't been able to see areas in which I need to add margin. But unfortunately, the list of selfish motivations...
  • R2D5 Couldn't complete the dare :(

    • 5 Comments
    Confession time. I couldn't bring myself to do the dare yesterday. I asked DH back before I started the dares what I did that irritated him. He told me a couple of things, and I have worked hard to stop doing them. I then asked him again during Round...

    Since my DH is not supposed to have his phone on him at work, I usually have to text him during the day, and he sees it whenever he takes a break. I know it's not the most optimal way to do some of the dares, but I can't call him during the day...

    I was at a complete loss today as to what to get my husband today as part of my dare. Last round, I purchased him a new pair of work pants. The next day, he told me that he already knew how nice I was, and to not get him anything anymore because it made...
  • R2D2 He said thank-you!

    For today's dare, I chose laundry! My DH takes care of his own laundry, and I take care of mine. He put some clothes in to wash before leaving for work this morning, and made the comment that he didn't have anything clean to put on when he got...
  • R2D1 The glass really is half full!!

    • 5 Comments
    Praises! Another great day! I don't know if it is a change in my DH or a change in me, or perhaps a change in both of us, but my DH seemed more like himself today. I got up and took the dog to the park for a long walk. The weather was wonderful, and...
  • Day 40 God is truly good.

    • 1 Comments
    Today's dare regarding covenant makes me sad. Especially as I watched my dad get married yesterday, it has made me sad that my DH feels that our vows are expendable and that I am disposable. God in His word is always our example, and He always kept...
  • Love never fails, part 2

    • 1 Comments
    Despite a wonderful day with family and friends, I came home to the cold, dark reality of rejection. When the wedding, reception, and birthday party were said and done, my husband went back behind his wall again. As I headed towards what has now become...
