Is have been a few days since I come here to write and share because my sister is in town visiting me from Europe. I have been listening to the dares everyday and doing my best to do what I am supposed to do. I am glad some of them don't require me to contact him. I am learning to give him his space. Now when I text him or call him he answers. Maybe not right away but he is not completely ignoring me.
Today we went out. Yes I asked him out. It was not part of the dare but it was what I felt I should do after praying. I did it because I wanted to go out but I felt like going out alone was not a great idea like it or not I am still married and beingredients out there opens the possibility of meeting someone else or getting involved in something else and I don't want to do that so I prayed. The answer I got was to ask him out and I did. He agreed and we went to have dinner and to watch a movie. It was good to have some time together. I am now home and he is at his place. Tomorrow I will see him again because he needs a ride to go to a business meeting and he asked me for that favor and I said yes.
I am glad I can be there for him. I thank God because the night went well. Without arguments.
I will continue praying as much as I can and continue listening to God. I am happy of the person I am becoming.
Thank God for the changes you are feeling.
He is your husband, it is good to go out with him. As long as you did it for the right reasons and it looks like you did.
If you ask him out again make sure it isn't to keep tabs on him, for finding comfort in him, etc.
Do not have expectations of this but he may conclude he let his wall down going out with you. And he may harden up for a time. If this happens, do not fear or worry.
Sounds like you listen to the dares and do not read them. If so, I think if you read the dares in the book, you would get more out of reading vs listening. Also, when you listen, is it just telling you the dare for the day? The book has a few minutes of reading to go with the dare, and that reading part is very important. I am not sure if the listening part shares all the book offers.
Thanks for the advise. I am certainty not expecting anything right now. I just felt that if I went out alone I will open a door for temptations in so many levels so I prayed about it before I even ask him. I asked without expecting that he will say yes and without expecting anything.
I have an audio book so is the whole book but you know someone is reading it. So is not just the dare is everything. I like audio books because I can enjoy a walk and a book at the same time.
Sounds good. I tried just reading the dares on line at first. then bought the book. And realized how much I was missing without the book. Glad you are getting all of it.
It's a great goal to avoid temptation.
