I Dare You

I don’t have time to tell you everything or maybe I am just to afraid, but suffice it to say that I need your prayers. Today I am starting a hard thing…today I am choosing to do all that I can to protect myself and my marriage from “the slow fade”. I love my husband but I need to learn to love him more. Today in spite of my fears that you may misjudge me I announce that I am starting “The Love Dare”. My relationship with my husband is not bad but there is always roomfor improvement. I want to do all that I can to love him more completely. I want to honor him more completely, I want him to know my love is in all that I do. I want my walk with God to grow and change in this time too as He shows me what real love means. Hopefully as I complete each challenge God will change me through and through…I pray He will give me a new understanding and a greater love for both Him and my spouce…and I hope you will pray for me too. The Love Dare is a forty day challenge and so I will be writing about this as it goes…feel free to join me if you so wish, I would love to know I am not alone. I understand though that being the one to make the step is often hard and scary. All I can say is fear not, and I dare you!

On a night that we know was so full of people, who had come to be counted, that there was no room in the inn for a king, our savior was born in a cave or a stable the humblest place for such a babe.

On the hilltops dusted with dew and wrapped in the bleating of sheep the very heavens opened with glorious singing to give lowly shepherds a peek.

Can you imagine there terror and excitement to hear and see the angels song? Or can you fathom the wild rhythm their hearts were beating along? The Lord of lords, and King of kings had finally come and they had been chosen to herald the hour!!  Oh what a blessing…who would believe them?

A miraculous birth as the living God was born into this world…a majestic gift for all who would come to know Him.

He was salvation wrapped in swaddling clothes and laying in a manger!

The fulfilling of phophets, from ages ago…who fortold of the messiah…a helpless babe come to one day help all mankind.

Nothing to say

I don’t know why it is that when I have something important to say I can never get it out but otherwise I just ramble on and on forever. Please forgive me for the lack of interesting new posts…I have been feeling less than inspired. In any case this should not even count as a post…I am just letting anyone who might care know that I have not died. Well I guess thats all for now, Merry Christmas everyone, and I will try a write again soon.
