love dare. day 18. love seeks to understand..

Day 18
How blessed is the man who finds wisdom, and the man who gains understanding.-Proverbs 3:13
Love seeks to understand
"If you miss the level of intimacy you once shared with your spouse, one of the best ways to unlock their heart again is by making a commitment to know them. Study them. Read them like a book your trying to understand.
  • Listen to them
  • Ask questions
  • Ask God for discernment

"By wisdom a house is built, and by understanding it is established; and by knowledge the rooms are filled with all the precious and pleasant riches" (Proverbs 24:3-4)

Today's dare

Prepare a special dinner at home, just for the two of you. The dinner can be as nice as you prefer. Focus this time on getting to know your spouse better, perhaps in areas you've rarely talked about. Determine to make it an enjoyable evening for you and your mate.

Questions for you:

  • What did you learn about your spouse that you didn't know before?
  • How could you continue this process of discovery in other ways at other times?
  • What were some of the moments that made this moment memorable?

Thanks for stopping by! love ya mean it! Stephanie
