God bless you Pastor Deanna,

You said a mouth full with out writing a Word. Wednesday's are pretty much the same, wordless or not (lol)

Lots of Love, Lady Sutton

Wish I were there. It would be good reason to ditch the housework and find good Cuban food and coffee to help you celebrate your day! Or I could at least help with the laundry! LOL!

Thinking about you...

Pastor Lisa
Thanks PL. I love you. :-) That Cuban and coffee sounds good. Actually what I wanted to do today and tonight was rest. About seven years ago I began to realize rest was my most valuable commodity. I started the habit of taking the day off on my birthday and "treating myself" with an extra day of rest. Lately, I have been overwhelmed with responsibilities, a few of which I did not choose and I'm trying to figure out how to unload them. (One of which I need to get your advice about privately). Anyway, I wanted to take off today/tonight, but it wasn't possible because I'm the only one tonight that will be here to lead worship. So taking off will have to happen another time. So many times in life the most simple things (just having a day/night off) can be unattainable. But that coffee with you sure will be good when I get to Houston next month! (It's only NEXT MONTH, can you believe it?) I can't wait.
I thoroughly understand. You're talking to the woman who is in constant search of this "Sabbath" a very popular author keeps talking about. It elludes me.

I had Jamaican food with a coworker yesterday and it was soooooo good! Lots of steamed veggies too!

I am so excited about your visit next month! It's next month! Cyberscream! Can't wait.

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
