    I was sitting here wondering if there has been any success stories on this blog since any of you have been coming here? I was praying about a week ago for everyone here and asked God to give us one success story. Of course, by success I mean a marriage...

    Dear God, Your purposes don't always come to light as quickly as we like. I want to push the obedience button and then have You show me what it brought about in my marriage. It is difficult to love without seeing the fruit or results of that love...

    I haven't posted or commented in awhile. I went to a very dark place the weekend I was shut in with bronchitis. Got the text from my ex telling me I need professional help and assuring me he will soon be looking for wife #3, so he can have 'someone...

    I've been out of town. This evening my daughter comes over and says she needs to tell me something so I'm not blindsided at some point. I knew what she was going to tell me. It has happened. My husband has a girlfriend. It's apparently been...

    Ok, I know this blog is about journaling concerning the Love Dare and our marriages, but I want to just share how my evening went yesterday. I had tickets for the Houston Livestock and Rodeo Show with the concert being Alicia Keys. A friend was going...

    Hello. I tried to write something back on day 47 but took it down. As I read the entries, my heart just breaks to realize what a terrible state marriages are in these days. Mine included. My husband of nearly 14 years told me October 3 of this year that...

    I haven't been posting as there hasn't been anything to say. I stopped doing the Love Dare book. I've been through it 4 times and quite frankly, I've found other books to read. I can't do the dares anyway, as my husband has made it...

    One of the ways I remind myself to keep my eyes on the Lord and remember He is faithful is I've begun recently to look at what He's already done and not what I can't see He's working out for my good. I lost a brother July will be a year...

    I'm doing the Beth Moore study, "Jesus, the One and Only" and today was on the mock trial of Jesus. Many things stood out in this lesson, but I'm not going to go into it all. I knew, going into this lesson, that as much as I would like...

    Was reading some in Jeremiah today, chapter 23. It talked about how false prophets were going to God's people proclaiming peace and hope while they were committing grievous sins and rebelling against God. This made God angry because He had not sent...

    I blew it yesterday. Afterward, I realized there is still so much anger and pride in my heart. I am struggling with discouragement and this terrible sense of failure. Truth is I want all this junk out of my heart even more than I want my husband to love...

    Reading PrincessLouee's entry made me think of recent information that came to me through my step daughter-in-law. She and my stepson went to my husband's house a week or so ago and he had been watching a church program on tv. The sermon was something...
