Day 11: Love Cherishes

I really don't have much to say about todays pages. Actually because I didn't have time to read it until 15 minutes ago and realised that while I didn't know what the dare was I had actually completed it. Pretty cool stuff. Chris and I haven't been fighting that much maybe a few harsh words spoken to each other but its good. I know that he doesn't really like me writing about it and its really not for you guys as much as it is for me. I haven't been as overly frustrated about it because I can look at what is going on objectively instead of letting my emotions overrule which allows me not to snap crackle and pop so fast.

Todays pages talked about treating your partner as you would if they were you and you was taking care of yourself. Instead of replacing a body part that could be fixed would be silly so why then should marriage be any different? Ephesians 5:28 says, "Husbands ought also to love their own wives as their own bodies."

I may not be married to Chris as of this very moment. But they way we live we might as well be. That's why walking away just isn't an option because the damage done to our relationship is fixed and replacing that is crazy.

Today’s Dare

What need does your spouse have that could meet today?
Can you run an errand? Give a back rub or foot massage?
Is there housework you could help with?
Choose a gesture that says, “I cherish you” and do it with a smile.
