The Love Dare Day 19


Today I was to look over the previous days and ask God to help me in the areas I need strength and grace. During this journey, I know God has held his hand over my mouth. I also know that He is helping me to have a heart for unconditional love. Am I there yet? I don't know.. If I am not, I am getting close. Only through God can I love unconditionally.
I do know that I am not blind to Dusty's particular ways of talking to me or his "guy ways" but I have become more tolerant. I do pray that he will become more in touch with his "feminine side"...is that asking too much? maybe...
It's funny when I look back to 1986 when I fell in love with him. I loved that he was a guy's guy. He loved sports and playing games. He hasn't changed in that regard. If golf, baseball, basketball, or football is on, you know he'll be watching and there will be no lifetime for women for me that night....
I loved the fact that he was professional in the his attitude and the way he looks at things..kind of that macho I'm taking charge kind of thing....I found that really sexy in 1986....now.. not so much...but like I said I he hasn't changed.
I think over time my priorities had changed. Instead of just me and him. It's me, him, Nikki, and Kara. I'm a mom and a lot of times that meant more to me. I have realized in order to make our family function the way God intended..it needs to be God, Dusty, and then the kids. It's funny how every one's needs are taken care with this simple formula...
Tomorrow's Dare is to trust Christ and to grow closer to him to get closer to Dusty. Until then...

  1. I happened onto your blog from themomblogs...

    I was doing The Love Dare too. My husband and I really enjoyed Fireproof, however Days 1 and 2 turned into do-overs quite often. In fact it took me a week to get through two of them. I commend you for being so far into it!

    Good luck!
