Love Dare Day 20


Today is my half way mark in this incredible journey. In my earlier posts I had shared that Dusty and I never talked during the work day because Dusty was in "work mode" and did not like calls....Well, I have to say that the last few days that has changed...If it's not a "Just wanted to check up on you" call then I get the check up email.. I'm feeling loved again....Twenty days ago.. I felt like a roommate.. I can tell Dusty is trying too. I have witnessed him catching himself before the negativity comes out... As I am sure, he has witnessed the same with me... When you cover your spouse in love good things just happen...When you feel loved and when you love you want to do things for the other person....It's not so much a chore but an I want to make them happy feeling.
I have never been an "overly religious person". I was more what you would call a "Sunday Christian". Yes, I believed in Jesus and Yes I believed He died on the cross for my sins... I was kind to others and yelled at my husband at home... During this journey not only brought me closer to Dusty...it's brought me closer to Jesus. Today's love dare chapter is called Love is Jesus Christ. One thing that is points out that I have learned is that God was willing to love me even though I did not deserve it...He was able to see ALL my flaws and imperfections and still choose to love me.. That's unconditional love...That's the kind of love I need to show Dusty...
The past 20 days I have been practicing unconditional love with Dusty. I have chosen to show love when he was not being lovable. I have to be honest, I don't have the romantic love..where I want to jump his bones every hour but you know what I have a feeling that God may have that feeling in the works.. who knows.. after 20 years of marriage we might feel like newlyweds again...wouldn't that be something...For today, I love Dusty and pray to be the wife that will bring him closer to me and to God.....
