The LOVE Month Challenge

Hey y'all! Please accept my deepest apologies about the Bible study delay. I'm going away for the weekend so I won't be able to post the study until Tuesday, February 9th.

There is a very special day coming up and it is called..... my Birthday! It's on the 26th but actually that's not the special day I'm talking about. It is.... Valentines Day! Some people might think Valentine's Day is just a random day where people give each other little cards and your dad gives your mom roses. But it can be very important..... if you make it. Some people might give a Valentine hypocritically to that annoying girl who sits at the back of the class room.... and who doesn't have any friends. This year, make the most of your Valentines Day and let everyone know you appreciate them. You can make someone's day! But Valentine's day isn't the only day to tell people you love them. How 'bout all year! Or, in this case, all month.....

So I am challenging you to the LOVE Month Challenge. This is like a tag, anyone is eligible to do this. But you can decide if you take it. You can blog about it, but you don't have to. If you do, though, try to give me little bit of credit and possibly my blog's link. Anyway, these are the instructions:

1. Grab an old notepad and your current favorite pen/pencil. Or a bunch of markers. This book will become your Progress Journal.

2. At the beginning of each week, on Sunday (you can start now), in your Progress Journal, list 7 things you can do for each immediate family member to let them know you love them (7 for each person!).

FOR EXAMPLE: Little Brother

1. Play a game of his choice with him.

2. Eat a plate of cookies (possibly made by you) with him.

3. Help him with his homework.

4. Bring him a glass with his favorite drink in it, complete with ice cubes and a straw.

5. Watch a movie with him.

6. Clean his room.

7. Do one of his chores.

Those listed above are just suggestions, but make a list of loving actions for each family member (Mom, Dad, siblings.)

3. After you've done that, make a chart, with days of the week vertically and family members horizontally across the top. Write one thing each day and do it. Make new lists and a new chart each week.

4. There will also be a topical task I will post weekly. This week's topical task:

Say thankyou to an adult who probably doesn't get that too often. Go up to the librarian, P.E. Teacher, or garbage man and say, "Thankyou for being the Sunday School Teacher/ice rink caretaker/lunch lady. I really appreciate it." You may have just made their day!

Have fun with the challenge everyone! And don't forget to comment your feedback!

Love in Christ, Abbie =D x0x

P.S. Hey, this is my one hundredth post! Thanks to all of you who have been with me! =D
