Day 7 – Thick and Thin

One Month to Love!
This was an awesome book, check out my review and I wanted to share with y’all the “important” parts to me. This is by far not what the whole book is about, but just a glimpse of what I thought was catching, or needed to be shared. I will be going through each day, as this will be sorta like my “journal”.

There are 4 weeks involved:
Week 1: The Art of Being All There
Week 2: The Art of Acting Intentionally
Week 3: The Art of Risking Awkwardness
Week 4: The Art of Letting Go

Day 7 of Week 1: Thick and Thin

Thick

It’s so easy to fall in love but hard to find someone who will catch you. ~Anonymous

There shall be such a oneness between you that when one weeps, the other shall taste salt. ~Ancient Proverb

Great relationships are built on weathering the storms of life together.
Lasting love says, “I’ll love you even when…” Even when you’re sick. Even when helping you is difficult for me. Even when your eyes dim and your skin sags. Even when you wrong me.
If something catastrophic were to happen in one of their, key relationships, lives, how would you respond? How far would you go to be there for them?

“The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.” Mark 12:31

True relationship is often defined by how you show up for friends and loved one in times of deep need and crisis.

Lasting Love Relationship Challenge
1) Can you recall a time when  you came to someones’ aid and found yourself blessed in an unexpected way? Write down some notes in your journal as you reflect on that experience.
2) Can you imagine yourself having a “Hosea Love” for anyone in your life? Who might that be?
3) Choose one of your key relationships, and try to anticipate a need they might have. If that arose, what would you be wiling to do in order to be there in the tough time they would be facing? Write that down in your journal.

In case you missed it:
Day 1 – The Most Important Thing
Day 2 – Face to Face
Day 3 – Zoning In
Day 4 – Being All There on a Deeper Level
Day 5 – Staying at the Table
Day 6 – Stuck With Me
