A new choice.
I am honored to guest host the Love Dare email for our friend, Jill. J I thought I had a different topic today, but I feel like the Lord has changed my heart.
Love Dare days 11/12… Love Cherishes and Love is Unconditional:
This weekend’s dare is about putting your mate’s preferences ahead of your own and giving in to their choice(s). It sounds easy enough, but is it? Be generous and kind. We can do this! Wherever you can, defer to your husband. We must do this without grumbling and with a big, pearly smile and mean it… or we’ll “fake it~ till we~ make it.” Let’s face it, we get our way a lot as the wives and/or mommas. Ahem, we mostly make the rules, afterall~ (and maybe pout sometimes till we do get our way with our man... or offer the punishing silent treatment) well, not this weekend.
October is here, a man’s best friend. Let’s make it easy on them, ok?!
This can be about what he wants to eat for dinner, for dessert, a restaurant choice, a movie, visiting the in-laws after church, hunting, BBQ, the countless football games that will be on television this weekend. Openly and with a smile (come on, you can do this, girls!!!) tell your love that you "don’t mind, the choice is his and his preference is very important to you. You decide, babe."
Besides, it’s good to know his favorite things! ;)
I unconditionally love you,
Luke 6:38 “Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.”
Colossians 3:17 "And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him."
Galatians 6:9 Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.
