Day 51 Round Two! "Love Cherishes"

  • Comments 2

Yesterday 10/15/18 my dare told me to Cherish my husband. This was a really good read in the book. Opened my eyes to a lot of things. However, I think I let my emotions get the best of me instead of completing the dare correctly. All day I thought about what I'd do to show my husband that I cherish him. So many things crossed my mind. I thought about hugging him real tight when he walked through the door, or grabbing his hand when he laid down and holding it tight, or rubbing his back, or just simply putting my arms around him when he fell asleep. But, none of that happened. When he came in the house last night he was very distant, cold and quiet. He didn't speak when he walked in. He went straight to the bathroom to shower. He got out, got dressed and got in bed. I asked him if had anything he wanted to talk to me about and he shook his head no. I asked him how his day at work went, he spoke very briefly about it and turned his lamp off. He scooted wayyyy over to the edge of the bed on his side and went to sleep. He woke up this morning with the same kind of behavior. Got ready for work and left without a word. Something is off with him. So I prayed for him right away. I sent him a text that said "Good Morning Fish, I just want to take some time out to check on you. I know when something is bothering you and I just want you to be okay. Please know that I'm here for you and you can talk to me. I see your pain, I see your worry, I see YOU! I'm praying for, I will pray with you and I'm here for you" He hasn't responded, which is fine. I'm not looking for a reply, I just want him to know that I notice him and that I'm here for him. I love how God is showing me how to be there for other people even in the middle of my own storm :) My emotions were a mess yesterday and that is why I feel as if I failed God by not completing the dare as I should have. 

  • You sent a loving, heart-felt text.  Regardless of how he responds, you were transparent and encouraging and made your self vulnerable and approachable!

  • Just make sure your motivation for sending the text wasn't for you to feel some comfort.  sometimes we do an act of kindness, not really to be kind to our spouse,  but in hopes of getting a benefit ourselves.

    I am not  thinking  that is why you sent the text.
