It's Friday and I Challenge YOU to Take the Dare

hello fellow readers. this week i felt all day like it was friday, but now that it is friday - i am so happy
so this week i wanted to share with all of you the recent challenge i have been doing...LOVE DARES!
i was approached by a co-worker about the book 'the 40 love dares' i followed that with i have never heard of it.
once she explained it to me, i simply thought 'i could use some improvment'.
i am going to give you the first day this week as my top five of the week - im doing this because i can really see a difference, i am the snippy, short, irrated wife. 'did you put the dishes away' - 'why didnt you put your cup in the dishwasher' and the most common is when he is trying to be cute and im all 'im trying to do the dishes so i can sit down for the night!!'
DAY 1 – Love Is Patient
Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.
—Ephesians 4:2 NIV
The first part of this dare is fairly simple. Although love is communicated in a number of ways, our words often reflect the condition of our heart. For the next day, resolve to demonstrate patience and to say nothing negative to your spouse at all. If the temptation arises, choose not to say anything. It’s better to hold your tongue than to say something you’ll regret.
Taken from the book entitled: “The Love Dare” by Alex and Stephen Kendrick.
You are dared to do 3 things today.
1) Pray for your spouse and yourself;
2) Perform the Dare;
3) Pen down your feelings and thoughts at the end of the day.
