Day 27: 338 days left…93 books to go!

The Love Dare  Love makes sacrifices
  •  This chapter is asking A LOT!  Wow!
    • About me..."We're the first to feet it when we're the ones being mistreated or inconvenienced.  We're quick to sulk when we're the ones who feel deprived or unappreciated.  When life is difficult for us, we notice.  But too often the only way we notice that life is hard for our mate is when they start complaining about it.  Then instead of genuinely caring or rushing in to help, we might think they just have a bad attitude.  The pain and pressure they're under don't register with us the way it does when it's our pain and pressure.  When we want to complain, we expect everyone to understand and feel sorry for us."
    • "Is he feeling 'sick'- physically tired and needing you to help guard him from interruptions?"
    • "When your mate is overwhelmed and under the gun, love calls you to set aside what seems so essential in your own life to help, even if it's merely the gift of a listening ear."
    • Today's Dare:  "What is one of the greatest needs in your spouse's life right now?  Is there a need you could lift from their shoulders by a daring act of sacrifice on your part?
      • Indeed, a few things come to mind...I will discuss & try to implement and report back when I have some progress!
