Fun Friday

We are still having a Christmas break except for dealing with Sunday services and emergencies. Today I slept in once again and rested most of the day. I have been so in need of this - my body is talking to me - and it's saying, "rest me, rest me..." and I'm complying no matter how much I want to be out there during the day using my Christmas gift certificates or whatever. I'm just saving that for evenings as really that's about all my body wants to do right now. I had come into this week very run down as I'm sure many people have. Last night I didn't get a lot of sleep. Larry and I had a wonderful evening together but for some reason I couldn't get to sleep although I was so exhausted. So during the day I ended up putting the "audio vision" channel (nature sounds, acoustic stuff - the kind of stuff they play in a spa) and laying down and resting and then taking a long "moonlight path" bath.

Larry took Dustin to get his blood work. He (Dust) has been dreading it but it's a must do. He is on some pretty heavy meds for his skin and it requires him to be tested. Long story but way back when we first started taking Dustin to the dermatologist I knew he needed this particular medication. Some things, a Mom just knows. I knew cream wasn't going to do the trick here. But the doc tried the face wash and cream first. So now he's on the heavy duty stuff and has to follow strict instructions and sign a pledge card that he will do and won't do certain things, and get his blood tested monthly. Hopefully in another two months or so, he'll be done with this. In the meantime he's not enjoying this a whole lot but this too shall pass.

So Larry took him to get his blood done and took him to a father-son lunch and then they stopped by the store and picked up the movie Evening for me. I wanted it for Christmas but just never got it. I was planning on purchasing it with some Christmas money I was given but now I won't have to since the Teeb got it for me. I can't wait to watch it! Not exactly the type of movie that is something you'd love to watch with surround sound, however I'm looking forward to it! I'll have to have some friends over and do it. Yeah Teeby...thank you for my movie. :-)

Tonight we went to the Currie's for dinner along with about 25-30 of their family. They had the family in and they usually invite us over when they do. Lisa made a lasagna dinner and salad and a ton of baked Christmas goodies. Bernie's sister Susan is in and we always enjoy being with her...I call her a "female Bernie" - she's so funny, just like her brother. They are so much alike.

I think I might venture out during the day tomorrow if my body is up to it. If not, I'll still be home. Fortunate thing...I love being home. Nobody would ever realize, unless they could get inside my head, just how much of a "homebody" I am.

Lar and I are going to do some jacuzzi time and no matter what- I'm telling you - I'm getting a great night's sleep!

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

I'm Just Being Transparent...

This year at the Stronger Conference, a young minister stopped me as I was walking out of the room at the conclusion of a workshop and she said, "I want to tell you something..." (I was all ears.) She said, "Do you notice how many of the speakers this weekend are saying, "Now, I'm just being transparent when I tell you..." or "I'm just keepin' it real..." I nodded yes. In fact, I mentioned that I was one of those speakers. I think I probably said a few times in both my keynote message and my workshop that I was just "keepin' it real." After I affirmed that yes, I had noticed that -- she said, "Do you know why they have to do that? They do it...and you do it, because so many people don't keep it real. So many in leadership aren't transparent, Deanna. That's why all these people speaking here feel an urge to declare their transparency.." I let her know that usually when I say, "I'm just kee

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
