"Love is a decision and not just a feeling."
Just recently I sat down to watch the movie "Fireproof." I was so moved, not by the acting necessarily ;) - but by the message this movie offered.
It has been a long time since I walked away from a movie wanting to change something in my life for the better. This movie did just that.
While this movie is centered around a marriage relationship, the "Love Dare" concepts could really be applied to any important relationship. And quite honestly, a relationship doesn't need to be in "turmoil" to benefit from this read!
For the next 40 days
I will be adding a new sidebar (to the right) titled
"The Love Dare."
Everyday will include a new dare
from the book, "The Love Dare."
The Love Dare serves to strengthen our relationships' by choosing how to treat those special to us. It isn't about changing the other person! It is about allowing God to open and change our own heart.
The first page of the book states,
"Receive this as a warning.
This forty day journey cannot
be taken lightly.
It is challenging and often
difficult process, but an incredibly
fulfilling one. To take this dare
requires a resolute mind and a
It is not meant to be sampled or briefly
tested, and those who quit early will
forfeit the greatest benefits. If you
will commit to a day at a time for forty
days, the results could change your
life and your marriage.
Consider it a dare, from others
who have done it before you."
And by the way, is it just me or does Kirk Cameron look as those he hasn't aged a bit?! But that's another topic for another day. LOL!
