  • I shouldn’t have.....

    I gave in to the desire to snoop this morning. I looked at my husband’s cell phone. I saw that day before yesterday, he contacted a divorce attorney. My heart is heavy. I know that God is in control. He is my source of comfort, joy, and peace.

    The opening sentence from today's dare reads " If you were asked to name three areas where you and your spouse disagree, you’d likely be able to do it without thinking very hard." Well, I have thought long and hard about this. The...

    Tonight we had a potluck at the office from 4 to 6 pm . Our spouses were invited to join. In the past, knowing that my husband wouldn't get home from work in time to get cleaned up and back out to my office, I might have just told him that I would...

    Do something out of the ordinary for your spouse. Well, I had a hard time figuring out what to do today with my limited amount of time at home today. I got home from work just in time to cook our dinner and get it cleaned up before I left for Bible Study...
  • R3D9 "How was your day?"

    • 2 Comments
    Well, I tried to change up my greeting today when I got home from work. I not only smiled and said hi, but followed it up with an immediate "how was your day?". He actually responded and said fine. That was the extent of his response, but it...

    Wondering about tomorrow 's dare. Tomorrow 's dare is to greet your spouse with a specific greeting, with a smile and enthusiasm. I am not sure what to do different here. When I get home from work everyday, my DH is already home, and sitting in...

    This morning while on my way to church, my daddy sent me a text asking if DH and I would like to join him for lunch after church. I sent DH a text letting him know, and asked what his plans were. He said that the grandkids were on their way over, and...
  • R3D7 Words of affirmation

    • 2 Comments
    Since Round 1, I am spending much more time in the Appreciation Room. The list of positive things about DH is much, much longer than the list of negatives. Today, DH went with his brother and a couple of hunting buddies to the shooting range to try out...
  • R3D6 Love is not irritable

    • 2 Comments
    I chose during the first round to react to tough circumstances in my marriage in loving ways rather than with irritation. From that point forward until today, I can see alot of progress. I hope that my DH can see that progress. I honestly cannot think...
  • R3D5 Humbled

    • 5 Comments
    A long post tonight........Apparently it has really irritated my DH that I have walked around for the last couple of months like I am "walking on eggshells". I think he is referring to my apprehension to do or say things at times. Also for a...

    I contacted DH while at work today and thanked him for helping me pick up the house this morning before he left for work, and then I asked if there was anything that I could do for him today. He didn't respond with anything. I have really been giving...

    Buy your spouse something that says "I was thinking of you today"........ My DH works outdoors and has been looking for some work shirts for the last couple of weeks. Not just any work shirts - inexpensive ones that are long sleeve with two...
  • Morning conviction

    • 2 Comments
    This morning, my devotional material served as conviction in my life. The devotional material said that anxiety is a result of envisioning the future without God. So the best defense against worry is staying in constant communication with Him. I was convicted...
  • R3D2 Kindness in word and deed

    • 2 Comments
    Kindness. I like the way that the book breaks it down into gentleness, helpfulness, willingness, and initiative. I have always thought of my DH as a very kind man. I don't know if he would describe me that way or not. I would like to think so; I would...
  • R3D1 Tolerating without complaint

    • 2 Comments
    I looked up the definition of patience today. It is "the capacity to accept or tolerate delay, trouble, or suffering without getting angry or upset". I have really developed more of this characteristic over the last couple of months. I have...
  • R2D40 What a "ride"

    • 4 Comments
    I hit the ground running this morning, and we just got home from my DH's company picnic at the amusement park. I met a lot of people that DH works with, and he introduced me to every single one of them that we ran into. I can't really ride the...
  • R2D39 Time is a precious gift

    • 2 Comments
    I did not leave DH a note declaring my ever-faithful love to him today. We had a long conversation at dinner tonight, and I figured a note on top of that this evening might have been too much. I have a card already written out - perhaps I will leave it...

    My husband‘s company picnic is tomorrow afternoon at a local amusement park. In the past, he and I have always gone together. The company pays for anyone living in your household. Then, they allow you to purchase extra tickets at a discount for...
  • R2D38 One day at a time

    • 2 Comments
    I have no idea what my DH desires right now other than a divorce (and I am not sure he even wants that). How can I possibly know what he wants if he doesn’t know himself. I pray that God will open my eyes to see and understand my spouse’s...
  • R2D37 An epic failure???

    • 4 Comments
    Well, Dare 37 of round 2, and I still can't do it. I can't ask him if we can pray together. I cannot seem to overcome my hesitation. I pray FOR him everyday. I would love to pray WITH him, but that isn't going to happen right now. If I asked...

    I have a dear friend at work that is a couple of years older than me, and is probably the most mature Christian woman that I have ever met. Her husband suffers from long-term severe depression, and so she definitely can relate to the struggle that I face...

    • 4 Comments
    My DH is not at a point that we can read the Bible together, but I am in the word every morning before work during the workweek, and on Sundays before church. I will have to admit, on Saturdays, every once in a while I will sleep in and I may or may not...
  • Oh boy, now what???

    Well I just thought things were getting better. DH told me on the way to bed tonight that he wants a divorce and that his mind is made up. He says he told his daughter 2 weeks ago. We chatted for a while, very calmly. He says that he gave it more time...

    Today's dare is all about seeking wise, Godly counsel, and thanks to my Heavenly Father for providing me just that. I am blessed to be able to afford to see a counselor, and have a dear friend whose husband also suffers from depression, and she has...
  • R2D34 More and more

    • 3 Comments
    Today's dare was to find a specific, recent example when my spouse demonstrated Christian character in a noticeable way, and commend him for it. Well, I didn't do too good with this one. I couldn't think of a recent example. Is it that there...
