What do you think?

I wanna know…what do you think? Do you think it’s just a cop out or do you understand that I, as a disciple of Jesus (one of His followers), can love you on one hand but on the other not support your life style, or some of your choices? Is that still okay? Can you still love me even though we wont ever agree on some very pivotal things? Like what? You ask. Well for starters, I love my gay friends…but I do not agree that gay marriage is right, not because I don’t want my friends to be happy but because God’s word says it’s wrong. I love my friends who have been divorced, but I don’t generally agree with divorce.  Marriage is a sacred covenant, created by God, intended to be an example of how He loves His church…it’s not to be entered into lightly or taken for granted, or made a mockery off.  I love my friends who have made the heart breaking mistake of having abortions but I do not think abortions are right…because the  Bible says we are fearfully and wonderfully made, that we are knit together in our mothers womb and that God knows us intimately before we are ever born…that baby has just as much “rights” as any other human being in America…or at least they should. Are you starting to see??? We don’t have to agree…but we can still be friends…right? Maybe not. It’s mostly up to you.

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!
