The Love Dare

I've started the book "The Love Dare Day By Day" and it's advertised as a year of devotions for couples. But that advertisement is somewhat misleading as far as I can see, for this book is so much more than that.
It's a 'Love Book' pure and simple. To me 'Day One' sums up perfectly the challenge that is presented to each of us every day of our lives ~ are we going to live a life of love or not? The authors present us with the bare truth: "Loving God and others is really what life is all about. There is a vast difference between the two. One is priceless...and one meaningless."

And my bare truth is, that in my life, I, many times, have chosen meaningless. I now want priceless.

One of this week's dares is to begin praying, "Lord, teach me what real love is and make me a loving person."


  1. good morning E, This really spoke to my heart. I want priceless too!!! So much of my life has been meaningless. I want to choose the dare prayer as well. ((((Love and Hugs))))). T

  2. Sounds like a good book Eileen, loving God is priceless but loving family in my opinion in never meaningless, perhaps I am missing something here. Have a great Sunday....:-)Hugs

  3. I think with all the love that you have given to your family, you already know priceless!
    Love Di ♥

  4. I think we are all a 'work in progress' in loving others all of our lives.

    Eileen, meaningless you are NOT. Ohmygoodness. You have love flowing from the tips of your toes to the top of your head.

    What gorgeous music you have here today. Where do you find it? I have loved so many of the songs and music you have shared. I still listen to the Irish one.

  5. I don't know how I could have missed this but I just noticed the song is by Paul Cardall! I love his music and I don't know why I have never heard this one it new, do you know?
