DAY SIX: Love is not irritable
"He who is slow to anger is better than the mighty, and he who rules his spirit, than he who captures a city." Proverbs 16:32
CHALLENGE: Choose today to react to tough circumstances in your marriage in loving ways instead of with irritation. Begin by making a list of areas where you need to add margin to your schedule. Then list any wrong motivations that you need to release from your life.
RESULTS: posted tomorrow:)
DAY FIVE: Love is not rude
"He who blesses his friend with a loud voice early in the morning, it will be reckoned a curse to him." (UGH!!)
Challenge: Ask your spouse to tell you three things that cause him to be uncomfortable or irritated with you. You must do so without attacking them or justifying your behavior. This is from their perspective only.
Results: I asked last night, and hubby just looked at me and laughed, he said 'you don't really want to know', I asked again, again I got 'you don't really want to know', so I said 'your not going to tell me?' and with a twinkle in his eye he said 'no, I'm not', so, I guess I can count that as done-whew!:)
DAY FOUR: Love is thoughtful
"How precious also are Your thoughts to me...How vast is the sum of them! If I should count them, they would outnumber the sand."
Challenge: contact your spouse sometime during the day, ask if there is something you can do for them
Results: I called and asked what I could do for him, and will be making his favorite meal-meatloaf for supper, when he comes home Wednesday night (G Rated answer;)
