THE LOVE DARE
Day 14


LOVE TAKES DELIGHT

Enjoy life with the wife you love all the days of your fleeting life. —Ecclesiastes 9:9 HCSB

TODAY’S DARE
Purposefully neglect an activity you would normally do so you can spend quality time with your spouse. Do something he or she would love to do or a project they’d really like to work on. Just be together.

*********************************
If Brad's not working then we're usually together. Once in a blue moon, we'll hang out with our friends, but for the most part, even when we're with friends, we're with each other. I'd much rather do things with him than without. Even the most mundane things are done together. I feel like I keep repeating myself, but it goes to show that I truly do cherish my husband and I do take delight in spending time with him. Yes, it's important to make time for each other, but spending time apart can also be just as beneficial. I'm not sure if time apart is included as a dare in this process, but for us it's a key element in our happy marriage. If Brad wants to go golfing with his buddies down at the coast, it's alright with me. I don't want to be the one that keeps him from enjoying his life. And it's a mutual feeling between the two of us. It goes without saying that to make that work you must trust and, in return, be worthy of the other's trust.

I do a lot with my hubby, unfortuantely though, since he is a minister, I have to share him.

I agree its important to spend time together, but every once in a while you need some time apart!
