The Love Dare Days 17 and 18

The Dares for today and yesterday were to guard my spouse's secrets and pray. Day 18 was to prepare a dinner just for the two of us. Well, Dusty and I are pretty much what you see is what you get.. There are no secrets to keep from others. That is something that our personalities are similar in.. at least this point in our lives. Maybe when I was in my 20's I may have had some secrets...can't think of any but I'm sure I did. Now that I am in my 40's...why bother?
During my two and half weeks of study, I have discovered that I can laugh at things that would have set me off. For example, Dusty was complaining about paying a monthly alarm bill and having a dog that barks if she sees someone. He said one or the other...the "old" Kelly reaction would be to go off on the reasons, I felt he was being a butt head....But yesterday I found humor in it. I started to laugh and imitate his voice on the matter and you know what?.. Dusty had to laugh too. Instead of the war it could have turned into a tender moment of laughter between the two of us.
Today's dare to make a dinner...well today is Sunday. We have our weekly Bible study Sunday nights that we both enjoy.. But last night...WE HAD DATE NIGHT! We have not had a night where we sat and shared a meal and had an incredible conversation in a really long time. I'm falling in love all over again and I like it....
Tomorrow's love dare is to evaluate my past dares and ask God to give me strength and grace...Until then...

  1. Hi Kelly!
    My friend JUST informed me that the Love Dare is a REAL book!
    (You and I have several favorite movies in common!)
    I can't WAIT to get a copy and begin this awesome journey!
    I tried to follow Kelly's Ideas also...but there are no posts showing? Is it in the works?
    Looking forward to getting to know you!
    Thanks for the inspiration!
    God Bless!
