Fascinating Meme & Anniversary Dinner




Haven't blogged anything since Saturday - just recooperating from the weekend...

Quite honestly I am not ready to blog anything super introspective...I am so tired and although many things over the weekend were good, just as many were stressful. So many thoughts swimming around in this head of mine, and somehow I'm succesfully restraining myself from spilling them all out. I've decided rather than get into the whole ball of wax in detail today (part of the reason I avoided my blog last night and so far today...) I would do a "Monday Madness" meme I found online. So here we go.

1. What was your biggest challenge this past week?

Successfully making it through the Christmas Extravaganza and my Christmas Open House.

2. What was your biggest accomplishment this past week?

Successfully making it through the Christmas Extravaganza and my Christmas Open House.

3. What was the most exciting thing that happened in your life this past week?

Successfully making it through the Christmas Extravaganza and my Christmas Open House.

4. What one thing made you the happiest?

That sums it all up, my friends.

Today was Dustin & Casey's "dating anniversary". He wanted to make a special dinner for her here at the house. Her favorite meal is chicken alfredo. I went and got all the ingredients for it as well as Caesar salad, garlic bread, fresh steamed veggies and cookies. We came home from work and I coached him through making it all while I set the table and stuff. Nothing was "out of a jar" - it was all my homemade recipes and he did a great job. We had dinner and they watched LOST (on DVD).

He seemed so happy. I really love it when my kids are happy.

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

I am a Spiritual Abuse Survivor
Guest Post: Leanne Weber

I met Leanne Weber years ago through Pastoring Partners Network . She now serves as one of our amazing PPN writers. Back when I first met her she was pastoring and in the midst of an abusive church situation. I as well as several of our other leaders at PPN walked through that painful journey with her and observed her as she went from hurting to whole. She's got an amazing story to share and the following is just part of it. 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.             I am a certifiable mess right now. I cannot get any work done, because I don't even want to be here. I am just...tired. I am tired of dealing with church people. If I was truly called, then I'd be able to handle this. I am sick of the only thing keeping me here being the fact that we have bills to pay, and we are finally in a place where we are fi
