Dustin is out of surgery

We are in recovery with Dustin. We have been here about 1 hour. Surgery went well. Dr. Patel said there were a whole 10 cc's of infection that he pulled out. He said there was bad scarring from the infection (all of which will go away) but he said it explains all the horrible extent of the pain he was in. He removed the tonsils & adenoids (sp?)

Dust is in terrible pain. They just got it under control after 3 doses of morphine and Larry asked me to sit down and update everyone and let you know what's going on and ask you to specifically pray for his pain. He calmed down about 30 min ago now that the meds kicked in. Dr. Patel said the first hour is the worst but by tonight he should want something cold to eat/drink.

In just a moment we are going upstairs to his room. He will be able to have visitors. A lot of people have asked about that. In a few hours I would think he would be ready.

An infectious disease specialist is coming to see him later on today or in the morning about how things are coming with the MRSA infection. We will give everybody an update. Please pray for the pain, the infection to go away.

We appreciate all your prayers.

Just wanted you to know that your son is in my prayers and we will also pray for him this evening at church.

Blessings to you.

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
