Zumba!

Wowwee! I tried something new tonight. It's called Zumba, and it's sooooooooo way fun. It's a dance/exercise class that combines salsa, merengue, hip hop, belly dancing, reggae and more. It's an hour and 15 min. of incredibly high intensity exercise. It's so cool, such an incredible work out, and so fun. There were like 10 people there that I knew, and it was a blast. To check out Zumba, and see what it's all about go to www.zumbaflava.com. One thing I did discover. The next time I go to Zumba I will have a new sports bra. Carmen Torres warned me 2 seconds before we started..."Uh, honey, I hope you have a very good bra on because if not, GET READY." She was right. :-) I have lost so much weight since the last one that I bought, it wasn't worth wearing it so I just wore a regular one...oh well, gives me an excuse to go shopping this weekend. Tonight I'm going to sit in the hot tub for a long time before I go to sleep because I'm thinking it might help me from being too achy tomorrow. Last week when Lindsay did her first Zumba class she almost couldn't move the next day she was hurting so much. Well, I can't wait for the next class! The teacher is so motivating. Sort of reminds me of my weight watcher leader, Ginger. Very high intensity -- just what I like and what I need.

I started my day with one of my least favorite things...my yearly OBGYN appointment. Oh joy! The only good thing about it is, my doctor is so nice. Such a kind man and always makes me laugh about something. So today before I even go into the office, I stop at the Dr.'s for the exam, and when Dr. Cazes walks in the room he says, "Oh my gosh, has it only been a year!" I said, "yep!" And he said, "Oh my gosh, time flies by when we're talking about pap smears!!!" Ha! Ha! You know, although I don't relish having that exam every year, it's important to me. I have learned from the bad example of so many women that I've seen who don't keep up with things - their annual physical, dentist appts., OBGYN appts., and then something happens and it's too late. They waited too long to address their problems. I have learned from ministering to so many women who face unnecessary tragedies that it just isn't worth putting things like this off. So, I do these appts. like clock work and keep up with them. 

Larry was hosting America's prayer meeting last night. I didn't watch the show last night while he was on....he tivo'd it and I will watch the whole thing this week. (it's a 3 hour show) Last night after church, Lindsay came over and we watched a movie and she spent the night. I ask her to do that when Larry's gone sometimes. We counted our WW points, ate a snack and watched the movie.

Today it was just Larry and  Pastor T and I for staff lunch and we went to Bombay Masala. I have not been there in so long. it was good. We taped a DVD to play for church while we'll be away to greet everybody. I got a lot of work done today although I had my appt and we had lunch together, I got a boatload of work done. Charted the course for next week and developed my initiatives.

The funniest thing just happened. I'm sitting here writing this blog and listening to Larry on TV. He just said, "In just a minute we're going to go to the phones and pray for Eunice and George." And I was doing two things at once and sort of didn't hear him right and I thought he said, "In just a minute we're going to go to the phones and pray for Curious George." Time to go. It's getting late, I need to get in the jacuzzi, spend some time with Superman, read my bible and go to sleep.

Relevant Church doing something...

incredibly RELEVANT!

I just heard some news today that really inspired me. A church here in Tampa, Relevant Church is doing a new thing this month called the "30 Days Sex Challenge." (I've never visited the church but Pastor Trinity - our children's pastor - has visited or has met some people from this church and he was very impressed.) Realizing that this is a major element missing from some marriages (the frequency factor) their lead pastor, Paul Wirth, has issued a challenge for all the married couples to have sex for 30 days in a row. At the same time he has issued a challenge for all unmarrieds to completely abstain from sex. Of course we know the Bible says that those who are unmarried should not have sex in the first place but the point is, a lot of unmarried's aren't obeying the Lord's command to abstain and this is just one pastor's way of trying to get them to see that indeed, there is a better way! (God's way!) At the same time, many married couples are no

What Verbal Abuse is Really Like, and Why We Must Care
Guest Post: Terri von Wood

In my speaking travels, I meet the most amazing people. Some are connections that go beyond just a night or a weekend of preac hing. One day on my journey, I met Terri von Wood, and we immediately clicked and have been friends ever since.  Just a reminder that all of our guest bloggers this week are available to chat with you in the comment section here on the blog or on my facebook page where the blog is also published.   *** People who have never suffered through or witnessed abuse (including pastors) often don't know how to help women in abusive situations. Knowledge is power and it is my belief that if the church understood the prevalence of abuse, help would be made available.  First, we must acknowledge that the divorce rate is the same  in the church as in the world.  Second, we must understand that the 50% divorce rate does not include all the women who are abused but stay because they do not know what else to do or do not have anyone to turn to.  If those women we
