Day # 40 - Love is A Convenant - Jennifer

These 40 days have been incredibly enriching for our marriage. Loving each other in different ways the past 6 weeks has put the focus and priority back on our marriage. Isn't that what God intended since his picture of a relationship between a husband and wife is to mirror his love for the Bride of Christ, the church?

Last night Eric and I watched our wedding video. My stipulation to us doing this instead of renewing our vows was that we had to watch all 90 min. of it; from start to finish! Our three younger kids sat through it just so they wouldn't miss the "Kiss". Then when it came, Elliot said "that's it?" in disbelief, and out of the room they went. Kids are so funny at times.

If you haven't started the Love Dare, just do it! It will change your marriage and just maybe your life.

Hi! I am just starting the Love Dare today, on my own, and thought I'd invite you to read and pray for me. I am scared, but excited about what God may have for us!

Thanks, and blessings,

I did the love dare about 5 years ago. I had such hope. But in the end, after everything, my husband chose to leave me. I was so heartbroken, especially after giving myself so fully to the dare. Unfortunetely, you cannot stop free will. While I think the dare is amazing and am so glad that I did it, your hope has to be in God's plan and not what you think should happen. It is now 5 years later, I fought so hard for my marriage to the point that my exhusband felt so smothered. I am now remarried to the most amazing man and I know that was part of God's plan. I have never been an advocate for divore and never will, but when you give constantly and get nothing back, the door is closed and you have to look to see what other doors God is opening for you.
