Day 6 and 7

I'm so sorry i'm just now getting this up for everyone! If you don't have to book and haven't been able to follow along in another way, feel free to catch up if you can. Do try to overwhelm yourself by doing it all at once. Just take a little extra time out over the next day or so and try to get these challenges in there. It will be well worth it I promise! :o)

Day 6 (Feb 6) "Love is not irritable" Proverbs 16:32
A loving wife is not overly sensitive or cranky but exercises emotional self-control. She chooses to be a flower among the thorns and respond pleasantly during prickly situations.

Day 6 challenge is...Choose today to react to tough circumstances in your marriage in loving ways instead of with irritation. begin by making a list of areas where you need to add margin to your schedule. Then list any wrong motivations that you need to release from your life.

Day 7 (Feb 7) "Love believes the best" 1 Cor. 13:7
Your husband is a living, breathing, endless book to be read. Dreams and hopes have yet to be realized. Talents and abilities may be discovered like hidden treasure. But the choice to explore them starts with a decision by you. Develop a habit of reining in your negative thoughts and focusing on the positive attributes of your husband.

Day 7 challenge is...For today's dare, get two sheets of paper. On the first one, spend a few minuets writing out positive things about your spouse. Then do the same with the negative things on the second sheet. place both in a secret place for another day. There is a different purpose and plan for each. At some point during the remainder of the day, pick a positive attribute from the first list and thank your spouse for having this characteristic.
