Well we're coming to the end of our love dare. I have to say it has been a interesting journey. Some of the things we were all ready doing, some we were neglecting. Things do change when you have children, and you get 'settled' in your marriage. This is something we all need to stop and look at - we should never neglect things, even the small things in a marriage. Just because we're all ready married it doesn't mean we all need that special attention - that attention that pulled us in when we first met. We may not have the 'time' that we used to, but we do need to put more focus on one another. This love dare helped me see that, I do still need to focus on my husband wants and needs, just as much as I do with my children.
Where you go, I will go, and where you lodge, I will lodge. Your people shall be my people, and your God, my God. Ruth 1:16
Write out a renewal of your vows and place them in your home. Perhaps if appropriate, you could make arrangements to formally renew your wedding vows before a minister and with the family present. Make it a living testament to the value of marriage in God's eyes and the high honor of being one with your mate.

Our Sunday School class is going to do a renewal of vows - we're supposed to do it before the church November 15th, we're have a dinner for all the couples...then after the ceramony, we're doing the cake and punch. I'm pretty excited about it. I am very commited to my husband and I do want to share that with everyone. He is so very special to me, I love him with all my heart. We may have our ups and downs, but we are always there for each other.
I do have to share one major thing we did change in our lives - when we 'tuck' the kids in at night we do a special family bedtime story, and we say our night-time prayer with our children. They are now wanting to do the praying, we help them say the prayer, but they want to do it - they have input. It is so special :-)
