  • Day 39 Love never fails

    • 1 Comments
    Today, my 77 year-old daddy remarried. My mom went to be with Jesus 5 years ago, and I am so happy that he has found companionship. Overall, I have had a wonderful day in spite of my circumstances, and I am so thankful to God for the blessing of today...
  • Day 38 Dreams

    • 1 Comments
    Dreams. My DH has never been one to verbally share his dreams. I do know that he would like to be able to retire at 65, and his dream vacation is to take a trip from San Francisco to San Diego along the Pacific Coast Highway. I got a credit card several...
  • Day 37 Prayer

    • 5 Comments
    Prayer. Nothing gives me more peace than spending time in prayer. I didn't have to be at work until a little later this morning, and I spent 3 hours in the word and in prayer. The Spirit led me to pray Psalm 119 this morning, among other things. I...
  • Day 36 Your word is a lamp for my feet

    • 2 Comments
    I have been reading the Bible daily (sometimes more than once, especially now) all year long. I started a year-long devotional that has been a blessing in my life. I have discovered that I am thirsty for God's word. Some days, I wish that I could...
  • Day 35 Whoever listens to counsel is wise....

    • 2 Comments
    Day 35 - seeking counsel. I have been seeing a counselor on a weekly basis since DH told me he wants a divorce 2 1/2 months ago. She is a Christian counselor and has helped me greatly along this journey. I wish that DH was open to seeking Christian advice...
  • Day 34 Growing weary......

    • 3 Comments
    Today is the first day that I wasn't able to bring myself to even attempt the dare. Today is the first day in 2 1/2 months, since this nightmare started, that I have felt anger towards my DH. Whenever I get home from work, he is always in the recliner...
  • Day 33 I really do want his input

    • 3 Comments
    The dares seem increasingly difficult the past few days. This one really served to convict me. Because of pride, I have not valued my DH's input like I should. It has been disrespectful to him. God provided me with an opportunity today to ask for...
  • Day 32 Shock and Awe

    • 4 Comments
    Well, I prayed that God would give me the courage to bring up the idea of sex tonight. It's been awhile, so I was very fearful of asking, given all the rejection lately. Ever since my DH told me that he wants a divorce, he has become so attached to...
  • Day 31 My Number 1 Priority

    • 6 Comments
    Today was another difficult dare for me. As DH becomes more distant, it is increasingly difficult to do the dares. Neither one of us has issues with not leaving our parents. His are both deceased, as is my mom. I believe he has had issues leaving his...
  • Day 30 Unity is very hard right now

    • 2 Comments
    I think today's dare has been the most difficult for me so far. I have been trying to figure out what has divided us.....what has destroyed our unity. I have asked God to open my eyes to what has served to cause such division. We have absolutely no...
  • Day 29 I'm living in awe

    • 5 Comments
    Well, I completed 2/3 of today's dare. I prayed for DH by name for a very long time this morning before I left for work. Oh how good it is to be able to lift him and our marriage to our Heavenly Father in prayer. I also was able to do something tangible...
  • Day 28 - A small sacrifice

    • 1 Comments
    I started praying last night that God would open my eyes to an opportunity to meet a need and sacrifice something for my DH today. I have had no idea what need to meet. At just about bedtime, I went into the kitchen to slice a fresh peach for myself....
  • Day 27, I can do all things through Christ

    • 1 Comments
    Well, I didn't complete today's dare as written. This morning, I discovered on my DH's phone that he called an attorney while I was out of town last week, and that he took vacation days while I was off. He called the attorney on Wednesday...
  • Day 26, Several Days Late

    • 2 Comments
    I spent the last couple of days across the country visiting my son and daughter, so I waited 3 days to do this dare because I wanted to do it in person. When my DH and I first got married, I came into this marriage with a very arrogant and prideful attitude...
  • Day 25 Forgiveness matters!

    Forgiveness. I really cannot think of a single thing that I need to forgive DH for, so I have prayed that if there is something that I need to forgive him for, that God will bring it to the forefront of my mind. Something in the meantime that comes to...
  • Day 24 A Happy Birthday because I am HIS

    Today, God opened my eyes to the discontent in my heart. I never would have termed it lust, but that's how Satan works. He deceives us into thinking that something isn't as bad as it really is. "I could be happy if only I had _________"...
  • Day 22 Difficult but Done

    • 1 Comments
    It surely is impossible to love DH without God's love in my heart. Left to my humanness, I would not respond to DH with words or actions of love, knowing they will be met with rejection. God gives me desire courage, and strength to love in the face...
