Love Dare Day 6- Love Is Not Irritable


He who is slow to anger is better than the mighty, and he who rules his spirit, than he who captures a city." Proverbs 16.32 Today's Dare
Choose today to react to tough circumstances in your marriage in loving ways, instead of with irritation. Begin by making a list below of areas where you need to add margin to your schedule. Then, list any wrong motivations that you need to release from your life.: This is such a great dare for all marriages. We need to approach the tough times in our marriages with love, not anger or irritation. I need to always make sure there is room for error in my marriage, and gladly accept that with love. No marriage is perfect, we need to always make an effort to willingly make our marriages better. Love is always the correct answer, not anger. Prayer: Dear Lord, let my time be spent showering love on my marriage, not anger and useless irritation. Thank You for showing us what true love looks like. I love You Lord. Amen

Funny we always want someone else to respond to our errors with mercy, do we not. Should we not do the same. Great exhortation-a HUGE key to a happy marriage.

Praise the Lord! Little irritations & lots more love!!! I love your Prayer!

Irritations are definitely useless!
Anger is never the solution and showering with love is so much better. Stuffing anger is dynamite and showing anger is volatile! But
getting rid of anger, takes away bitterness & resentment that just makes you a sour puss! And I know that you & Lovebug are sweet as sugar...or honey for Shortybears!

I love you! & thanks for your many visits! You already were at my TT!
But bless you for coming to nthe repost & treating it as if it's your first time! You're amazing!
Many blessings Denise & may the Healer wrap His arms around you!

My heart aches but you are fearfully & wonderfully made by the True Creator who loves YOU!(hugs)
