Zoning out with a meme



1) Flip to page 18, paragraph 4 - in the book closest to you right now, what does it say? "How is one made ready? First he must know Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior. Second, he must be living an overcoming, holy life, expecting him to come. Is anyone perfect? No. but there is a difference between willfull disobedience and serving the Lord to the best of one's ability." (Enrichment Journal, Winter 2008)


2) If you stretch out your left arm as far as possible, what are you touching? My husband.

3) What’s the last program you watched on TV? The Investigators.

4) Without looking, guess what time it is. 11:00

5) Aside from the computer, what can you hear right now? The ceiling fan.

6) When was the last time you were outside and what did you do? I walked with Larry downtown by the water.

7) What are you wearing? PJ's

8) Did you dream last night? If you did, what about? Yes I did but I could not remember the details when I woke up.

9) When was the last time you laughed? With Larry on our date.

10) What’s on the walls, in the room you’re in right now? Photos of Larry and I, and a painting.

11) Have you seen anything strange lately? I see strange things every single day. I work in a church office and we never know what's going to happen there.

12) What do you think about this meme? I like it - it's giving my mind a rest from thinking about work or anything else of a serious nature.

13) What’s the last film you saw? Bourne Ultimatum

14) If you became a multimillionaire, what would you do with the money? Tithe, give an offering, pay off our house and car, help my children all I can, put a chunk in an investment to keep the money flowing in so I can give even more, and after that I would think of who all I can bless...I have a list a mile long.

15) Tell us something about yourself that most people don’t know. It is difficult for me to be around people for long periods of time without a break. I require a great amount of solitude for my mental health.

16) If you could change ONE THING in this world, without regarding politics or bad guilt, what would it be? That people would have a greater hunger for God and the things of God.

17) Do you like dancing? Yes.

18) George Bush? Yes. He is not perfect (no leader is) but I believe he has done his best.

19) What do you want your children’s names to be, girl/boy? Already had them, but if I had other children in the future I have plenty more names. However, this would be a miracle right up there with the parting of the red sea if I were to get pregnant again...

20) Would you ever consider living abroad? I would do anything the Lord asked me to do. It's not a matter of my consideration.

21) What do you want God to tell you, when you go to heaven? Well done, My good and faithful servant.

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
