Love Dare~Day 10

Today is my day off and I am running late late late!!!! Abby and I have a Dr. Appt this morning, and I've gotta leave the house in 30 min!!!! Abby is still asleep, I'm still in my pj's, and breakfast is still on the stove! Ahhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!! So, let me post today's dare, and I'll check in later :)

"Love is unconditional"

"God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." -Romans 5:8

A few notes from today's reading:

~If your reasons for loving your spouse all have something to do with his/her qualities-and then those same qualities suddenly or gradually disappear-would your basis for love be over?
~The only way love can last a lifetime is if it's unconditional. The truth is this: love is not determined by the one BEING loved but rather by the one CHOOSING to love.
~Agage love is selfless and unconditional. So unless this kind of love forms the foundation of your marriage, the wear and tear of time will destroy it.
~There must be a stronger foundation than mere friendship or sexual attraction. Unconditional love, agape love, will not be swayed by time or circumstance.
~Love that "bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things" (1 Cor 13:7) does not come from within. It can only come from God.

Today's Dare:

Do something out of the ordinary today for your spouse-something that proves that your love is based on your choice and nothing else. Wash her car. Clean the kitchen. Buy his favorite dessert. Fold the laundry. Demonstrate love to them for the sheer joy of being their partner in marriage.

To Journal:

~Has your love in the past been based on your spouse's attributes and behavior, or on your committment?
~How can you continue to show love when it's not returned in a way you hoped for?
~Were you able to complete today's dare?

Yall have a great day! :)
