Good Saturday


Today was a mixture of work and play. I had last minute loose ends to tie up for church and house work to do, but Larry wanted to take Savanna and I to the flea market today while the boys went to their jobs at the church. I got my laptop and decided to work while on the way there and back and in between stops and just finish up the house work when we got home. By the time we got to the market it unfortunately was closed, so we just went to some of our other favorite bargain stores and among other things got Savanna's school clothes. The only thing I have left to get her is a back pack and sneakers. It's good to have that done.


We picked the boys up from work and came home and Larry made spaghetti with garlic bread. His is always my favorite. It always tastes better than mine. I always wonder...is that because I didn't have to make it and just got to relax? Or do I really find it better tasting? I don't know but I really don't care to find out - I'm just content to eat what he makes!


While he was cooking the spaghetti, I did a few odd jobs around the house and had to clean up a candleholder that I broke. I was really upset about it...I mean to the degree that I had to go to my room for a while and just cool off. I know that sounds crazy but sometimes I wonder how many more "special things" I'll have to say goodbye to. What means the most to me are special things from others, not things I acquire myself. I'm sentimental in case anyone hasn't figured it out. It's not so much "what" I have in life, it's "who" gave it to me. This candleholder was from Sis. Tanner. It really meant something to me. I was mad at myself for breaking it while I was cleaning. Oh well, it's gone and what's done is done.



The rest of the night I was getting the clothes ready for tomorrow, doing two loads of laundry, tidying up the bathrooms, and a myriad of other stuff like that, plus printing out work I had been doing earlier in the car.


It looks like this coming week after working, I am set to have my day off with no hindrances unless there's an emergency. I love it when I see a free and clear Friday coming. There's nothing like it. I know that I can abandon myself to working hard knowing that the day of rest and refreshing is coming.


I'm looking forward to a GREAT DAY in God's house tomorrow. He is going to do awesome things - I just know it! How blessed we are to serve Him ~ and His people.

Oh, my goodness! I feel the same way about my husband's mashed potatoes...His are always so much better than mine, lol! That's an interesting theory...

I, too, am inconsolable when I break something that means a lot to me. Seriously...my husband has learned to just give me space and let me calm down before I break more stuff ;o).

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

Why You Should Never Hijack a Comment Thread
Social media etiquette 101

One surefire way to kill your influence in social media and wear out your welcome fast is to become involved in derailing somebody’s comment thread with your own agenda. Networking and hijacking aren’t the same thing. It’s surprising how many people don’t understand that this is a guarantee for tearing down a platform as quickly as you build it. Passion is good, even necessary. I appreciate people's zeal for their personal core values. What is not appreciated is the attempt at a redirection of a comment thread when the comment has little or nothing to do with an original post or is twisted at best. Social media provides ample opportunity for all of us to share what’s important to us on our own platform. Eliciting others’ responses and developing connections largely depends on our ability to communicate and compel. Some people are open to receiving private communication from others although they aren’t always able to answer personally or at length. But hijacking a comment threa
