Larry came back to bed...


Yes, he's back where he belongs. I thought Larry would be in the recliner chair a few more days at least. They recommended before that he sleep there so as to not roll over on his arm accidently. Also, it's hard for him to get up and down from a chair, the sofa, and especially a bed. So I thought, "I'll be by myself a while longer..." But no...he's back tonight although he can only sleep on his back. He just couldn't take being away from me anymore, I guess. :-) Three nights of separation is enough. Teeby has come home.

Larry's nurse and therapist were here today. They said he's doing amazing! His incision and stitches are awesome. He is doing a lot of therapy on his arm - even going the extra mile beyond what they asked for. He's determined to have a perfect recovery. He's still on meds every four hours but tonight for the first time he'll just have a bottled water by the bed and I'll wake up and open it up for him, let him sit up and take the pills and go back to sleep. I think he'll be on meds at least another 2 days.

Today we cancelled our VT meeting we had scheduled for church due to Larry's recovery. When I came home from church we just had leftovers and then later in the evening I put Jordan in charge of dinner. He does steaks really well on the grill. I mean he is uncommonly good with them, to the degree that I sit there and moan while I'm eating every bite. That boy can make an absolutely perfect steak. So he made dinner and it was wonderful and then we just spent the day relaxing which was so nice. Larry is still needing our help to do stuff but not quite as much and is getting more mobile now so I actually got some rest.

Five things that make me the really happy right now:

1) My house is still clean.

2) I am sensing in my spirit that something internally great is going to happen on the Africa trip. Yes, I'm going to bless the people, to serve them. But I'm feeling as if a major shift is going to happen inside me. Can't wait.

3) I really love teaching Sunday School.

4) Something good happened for Susan this week that we've been praying about. I won't blog it here, it's her personal biz, but I'm happy for her. I love praying things into existence for others!

5) I'm seeing Ada Wednesday!!!!!!!!!!

Bonus: Larry is sleeping with me tonight!

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
