Love Dare Day 13- Love Fights Fair



If a house is divided against itself, that house will not be able to stand. Mark 3.25 TODAY'S DARE: Talk with your spouse about establishing healthy rules of engagement. If your mate is not ready for this, then write out your own personal rules to "fight" by. Resolve to abide by them when the next disagreement occurs. : Lovebug and I had a very nice conversation about this today. We never want to fight, but if we should, we are choosing to fight fair. I promised him that my words would be softly spoken, not harshly. I promised that I would always remember there are two sides, not just my side. We both promised to never bring up the words divorce, or quit. Our marriage is worth fighting for, we will never give up on each other. We promised never to go to bed angry. We promised never to slam doors, throw things, or touch each other in anger. We promised to work on our marriage always, together. Prayer: Dear Lord, thank You for this partnership I have with my husband, it will forever be a work in progress. Please help us, as we work to make our marriage better, and stronger everyday. Thanks for being our Cornerstone, we love You. Amen

The heart of your marriage is solid. It is so evident. Christ is center. As He should be in all homes. You are a blessed pair. God uses you to share the things that need to be valued in all homes/hearts/and lives. I see it everytime I visit.

I love you sweet friend! You bless my life in many ways!
