Well, well, well, day 4 I really wasn't "allowed" to do the action---which was to contact your spouse sometime during the business day and ask how they are doing and if there was anything you could do for them---but I could do it later.
I like day five's reading--LOVE IS NOT RUDE--it is true that we are sometimes rude to each other or do things that make it unpleasant for the other person.--the bottom line--"genuine love minds its manners".----when we apply this it helps to " restore an atmosphere of honor to your relationship. People who practice good etiquette tend to raise the respect level of the environment around them"---so this is the dare not to be rude, but to be delightful.
I thought that was and is a great challenge--to be delightful, not rude. 3 principles the book gives: 1.Guard the Golden Rule. Treat your mate the same way you want to be treated (Luke 6:31)
2. No double standards. Be as considerate to your spouse as you are to strangers and coworkers. 3. Honor requests. Consider what your husband or wife already asked you to do or not do . If in doubt, then ask.
THe challenge or assignment today: "Ask your spouse to tell you three things that cause him or her to be uncomfortable or irritated with you. You must do so without attacking them or justifying your behavior. This is from their perspective only."
Great advice and I think I know some of the answers I will get, we will see ;-)
