Long Lasting Intimacy & Passion
Why did we marry?
"we were head over heels in love"
Courtney @ Women Living Well
has kicked off today
I first questioned the word "challenge"
should it be a challenge to do these things that I
need to already be doing?
Admiration, Praise, Appreciation &.......
I looked up the definition to the word.
Challenge - n. to compete in a sport
I was instantly reminded of the scripture passage
in Genesis 26 of Issac & Rebekah
(I think sweetheart has read this one to me before)
Issac was sporting with Rebekah his wife
However, the commentaries or dictionaries explain this one
laughing, playing, they were enjoying one another
So ironic this "challenge" to be presented today.
This morning sweetheart found this -
Week ONE begins today
and I have a head start!
Here is Courtney's challenge for this week:
Look for ways to praise your husband verbally.
Praise him in front of the kids, friends, family, co-workers, on facebook, tweet it -
get praise out anyway you can!
Try to mention something noteworthy he has done - in his role as provider, father, husband, lover, or friend.
If the thought of trying to come up with one terrifies you,
then pray right now that God will give you new eyes to see your husband as God does.
Then open your mouth and say something kind and uplifting to your husband
today and tomorrow and the next day until Valentine's Day arrives!
Of all things~
I went to the bookshelf last night and
Fall in Love and Stay in Love
by Willard F. Harley, Jr.
and started re-reading it.
I highly recommend this one.
We plan to celebrate our
25 years of marriage this year.
I'm hoping to
rekindle, restoke, renew
and whatever else
I can do to keep the love alive.
