"Love, love, love, love, love!"

4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
 8 Love never fails. 
1 Cor 13:4-8

This week has begun a whole new season of "Love, love, love, love!" It all started when one of my social networking friends (shout out to my Nov 09 Babyfit girls) asked if anyone was interested in doing the Love Dare with her and a friend. I love the movie Fireproof  and know the Love Dare to be an amazing walk and challenge of love towards your spouse, so I was all about it. Especially as I've tried it once or twice before and not made it past day 8. We collectively rounded up about 20 women interested in walking through the 40 day challenge together. I am so excited to have them for support, prayers, and laughter as we each strive to be better wives to our husbands.

As though that isn't enough love for one girl, a new baby was born. And by baby I mean blog series. I had invited Lori from Penelope Blue to join in our Love Dare challenge and next thing I know the Lord had us discussing a collaboration, blog linky and blog series. Complete with guest posts from other well known Christian Bloggers. I am so excited about this new blogging journey, in fact I'm down right in "love, love, love, love, love" with it!!!!! 

We still have a few details to work out but it looks like we will be doing a 10 week series focusing on 20 of the dares. I am so excited to be working with Lori, I love reading her blog because she is honest and real. I hope you will join us in this journey, focusing in on a dare or two at a time with us, then journaling about your experiences.

Head on over to read the series introduction at Penelope Blue and plan to check back in with us in the next week or so to get this journey started.

With all this "love, love, love, love, love" going around my husband better watch out!
