Day 3: Love Is Not Selfish

I am sitting on the fence right now about having faith this will work or believing that this is an impossible task. However tonight since I came home we have mutually managed not to fight....and me not be negative and nit pick but rather thank him for actually putting a good effort into cleaning the room. Sometimes it's hard to have faith in much but I keep remembering that through God anything is possible.

l In other news:
In other news work was alright tonight but there was a mass shooting in the holler where Chris grew up. This guy opened fire on the police shot like 4 and the cops shot him and two others one of which took to the hills and they are looking for him. They used to call this Bloody Breathitt because of the feuds that occurred here. I guess every era has a way of living up to the old reputation.

Xay is slowly making progress with potty training. We have been at it for a little over a month and he still doesn't tell when he has to go pee but he has been telling us like 80% of the time when he has to poop. When he is with Chris and I we ask him a lot if he needs to go and usually we don't have any accidents along the way. We keep reminding him that when he goes to the "big boy potty" all the time that he will get his "choo choo" undies; of course we are referring to Thomas the Train. I however am about burned out on Thomas so I found a new carton called Chuggington which satisfies his train obsession. Back on the Barnyard is another big favorite of his. One of those is what he requests the moment he come Into the room.

I had a whole lot more type for this post actually and the iPad decided to eat half of the post for some unknown reason and I have yet to find a good blog app to use. But I guess that give me more to talk about during the rest of the week. So later this week I will rant about the whole name situation with Xadrian.

Day 3s Dare: Whatever you put your time, energy, and
money into will become more important
to you. It’s hard to care for something
you are not investing in. Along with
restraining from negative comments,
buy your spouse something that says,
“I was thinking of you today.

Okay so....I think it's safe to assume the no negative comments will continue throughout the next 40 37 days. I don't think it is going to be easy....I think there is gonna be times that I am gonna want to go off because it's a defense...some of the things he says hurts bad and it's either get angry or cry. I guess I'm going to have to find a middle road. The rest of today's pages taught they about the importance of not being selfish. It points out that love "does not seek its own” (1 Corinthians 13:5). So that meaning to me that love doesn't mean I do something for myself first it means I out him first just like I put my son first because I love him. Another verse from todays reading was, “Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves” (Philippians 2:3). Again reinforcing the importance of me needing to put him first as he should put me first. So imma off for the next three days and I got a lot of time to put in to this so here is hoping today is a success and he doesn't get the big head because I put him first.
