  • 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

    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!

    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...
  • R2D4 Chocolate makes everything better!!!

    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...
  • R2D3 Love is not selfish.

    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!!

    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...
  • 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...
