Day 20

Wow! My loving acts for you get more and more romantic–last night I began organizing my book collection for you. Okay, that’s not romantic. But I promise that many romantic acts are coming! I know how much you’ll appreciate this act once it’s done. I have books stacked on my desk, under my desk, on top of the bookshelf, beside the bookshelf, under the bed, and of course, on the bookshelf. Many of these books I’ll never read. You’ve begged me for days (okay, months) to do something about them. Now, I am. I’m sorting through my books, trying to be realistic about which ones I’ll read and which ones I need to trash. I promise I won’t keep any more books than will fit on my bookshelf (and perhaps under the bed). You’ve graciously endured my bibliophile tendencies too long and it’s time for me to change.  May I bless you with this act and romance you with the next.

    Thanks for your comment and follow on my blog! I found you through a friend of mine on twitter and really like what you are doing here. I don’t know if you read through any of my other posts or not, but my marriage has not always been a good one. There is some serious lack of romance in our home and that needs to change. I pointed out your blog to my husband last night and told him how amazing I thought the idea was. If I am to be totally honest, I guess I was kind of hoping he’d take a cue from you. However, I am thinking that maybe I am the one who needs to start something like this for him. We started doing the Love Dare with each other a few days ago and perhaps I can build on that; using it as a jumping off point.

    As for Courageous, I hope that you do see it. Take your wife and it could be one of your 365. It’s about fatherhood, but so much more. It would make a very good date night.

    I look forward to following this journey you have chosen to undertake. I pray that it does wonders for you, your wife, and your marriage. I especially look forward to the day that she is presented with this amazing gift. What a legacy you are leaving to your children!
