Love is Kind (Day Two)

Today is day 2 of the Love Dare. Yesterday went very well - I didn't have to 'battle' or bite my tongue ;-) All in all it went rather smoothly.

I'm going to try to share what I do go through - but I will not get too personal.....of course some things are between a spouse and God.

If you didn't read my first blog - My husband and I are doing the Love Dare - the class based on the movie "Fire Proof". Our adult Sunday School Class is doing it. I'm going ot try to share the dares day to day - they go Monday - Friday. The book is realy awesome, and I hightly recommend everyone try this.

Day 2 - Love is Kind

Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you. Ephesians 4:32

Todays Dare:

In addistion to saying nothing negative to your spouse again today, do at lease one unexpected gesture as an act of kindness.

I have to say I tried to get on this one early this morning - I got up a little early for it. Our smallest chilren (Braxton and Brylee) have to be to school at 7:45, Jerimy usually takes them - I get up get them ready, get Jerimy up...he helps me finish up and he takes them to school so I won't be rushed to be to work on time. My oldest daughter has to be to school by 8:50 - we leave the house by 8:00 so I won't be late for work at 9am. It all actually works out. Jerimy just takes the smaller one's on his way out.....and I'm not rushed. (btw - he does pick them up from school)

Anyway - got up early, was EXTRA quiet ( I usually cladderbang) - got the kiddos up quietly, got them ready and we headed out the door. I let my hubby sleep in a little extra this morning. I planned on making him some breakfast when we got back, but he had to rush out.

I have to add, he has all ready did something this morning - he actually made up the bed :-) I don't know about you guys, but I love for my bed to be made, and it's difficult to do in the mornings (I do it when I get home, or before going to sleep) But he did it, got up and made it.

Anyway..hope you guys have a great day!!! Now let's see if I can hold my tongue another day!!!

This sounds fantastic! Speaking of making the bed, my bf attempted to do so today.
