That takes the cake!


Last night Larry took Savanna to the studio with him to do the show. She did great - was quiet the whole time. He let her pick the songs/videos for the show. When she got tired of watching him do the show she wrote in her book. Finally at 2:30 am she went to sleep on the blanket and pillow she had brought. Here are some photos of her. She had a great time on the set and he took a few pictures of her there.


In addition to grocery shopping and cooking for a meeting we are having this weekend, Savanna and I cleaned the laundry room out and threw half the stuff away that was in there. I don't know why but I am motivated to clean a bunch of stuff out and re-organize. I have a new thought. Every time we have ever moved, and I have thrown half our stuff out and packed up, I have thought, "why didn't I do this a long time ago?" It's such a better way to live. Well, we are not moving. Far from it - I'm real settled here. But I am just tired of stuff we don't need. It's hard to get rid of things b/c Larry is such a pack rat, but I am able to get it done when I persevere, even though I have to sneak sometimes in throwing a few things away! :) Anyway - we are doing a lot of cleaning and re-organizing.


So Savanna had such a good time last night at the studio with her daddy, she went with him again tonight. He does the show this evening and then again Monday evening.


Tonight I had a girls night out. I went with Cathy, Misty and "Grandma" (Misty's) to see Evening. What a great movie! We loved it. Lots of tears. The theater was mostly filled with women but a few men. The funniest thing happened at the end on the way out. When the credits came up and we were leaving, we heard a man say, "I've seen a lot of movies in my time, but that one takes the cake!" He didn't mean it in a good way. He was frustrated. He obviously had NO IDEA what this movie was about. He was clueless. We started laughing and left and just couldn't get over his attitude. We went to Panera afterwards and were still laughing going, "that takes the cake!"

We got to Panera just as they were closing. They had already locked the door but they opened it back up and let us in. We ordered pastries and coffees, and sat for a while and ate and talked, mostly about how we related to the movie. Good stuff...it took the cake!

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

This Could Have Ruined Everything... (But It Didn't!)

 No one would ever guess what happened to me this weekend in Jacksonville, Florida...so I'm going to tell you. :) As I was preaching at the Fearless Tour at New Hope Assembly of God this weekend,  I got choked up, literally. For probably 2-3 minutes I coughed profusely and greatly struggled. Then I drank some water and kept preaching. Everyone was gracious to give me a few moments to get my bearings. If you were there, you'll remember it! What no one realized at the time was that I swallowed a bug that flew right in while I was preaching! So disgusting! I said nothing because I was at a point in the sermon where I was really connecting and I knew if I said, "I swallowed a bug," everyone would either laugh profusely or be really concerned, or start feeling sorry for me.  And at that point whey wouldn't be thinking about the message anymore, but the fact that I had just swallowed a bug. They would then imagine what it would be like, and feel grossed out which

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
