Ready for a new 30 Day Discipline? Some of you have completed the 7 Minute Workout Fitness Challenge and are ready for another challenge!! I know I am! That challenge focused on YOU and making time just for YOU on a daily basis. This one will be a little different, but just as beneficial for YOU...this one can make a positive impact on yourmarriage...
Sometimes in marriage, with our busy lives...we start taking our spouse for granted and stop telling them the wonderful things we once expressed easily...we need to make a habit out of expressing ourselves again! That's my wedding day in the picture above...I think of it so often. It was perfect. With my anniversary coming up later this month...I plan to make this challenge super fun!
Pick ONE WORD to describe something about your spouse.
Here's the rules:
- The word must be POSITIVE.
- It must be a NEW word daily.
- Don't tell your spouse you are doing this.
- Don't EXPECT anything in return.
You are going to tell them in any way you choose.... verbally, in a text, in a note, on the bathroom mirror in lipstick! Make it fun and unexpected by changing the way and the time of day you tell them! Remember, don't tell them what you're doing!!
"You are Loved."
"You are Handsome."
"You are Patient."
"You are Sexy."
"You are Supercalifragilisticexpialadocious!"
You get the idea....
Can't think of one? Make one up!
Even if you are mad at them. Even if they are annoying you. Even if they have upset you. Think of ONE thing that you still LOVE about them today. These simple words will make you focus on the good and you may speak LIFE back into your marriage.
I hope you'll try this marriage challenge. Be creative. Don't overthink it. Have fun...
