Snip, Snip


Deborah said she couldn't come from South Africa just to see my new haircut, so for all of you who won't take the time to fly in and see it (LOL) here it is...

I know it might not seem that short to some of you but realize, my hair has NEVER been this short and...in five years I've gone from very long hair in a total "80's" style. As you can see, right now a part of it is actually "shaved" on the bottom to make the top sort of flip under.

I'm gonna keep this for a little while but I do have to admit, I miss my flip. Although last night at prayer meeting, Debbie (Winchester) said, "ya know, I was getting kinda tired of your flip. I love this new cut! It's so awesome!"

Actually here's the secret...it doesn't matter what I'm doing - whatever it is that is current, it's what Debbie thinks is great because she is a fantastic encourager and always wants me to believe I'm "the best ever" at that moment. (Thank you, Deb! You never fail to make me feel like a million bucks.)

Of course then there was Pastor Trinity who, today at lunch says to me, "PD, the next thing you know, you'll be getting a Joyce Meyer haircut."

Um, no. Probably not. This is short enough.

Then there was Bernie at lunch on Sunday. He says, "What was up with the announcement video this morning?"

He was referring to my hair. Here I was sitting on the platform with my new short hairdo. Then I pop up in a video announcement on the screen with long hair. (It was taped days earlier when I was wearing my wig that I got in Houston.) He says, "what's up with that?" I said, "Bernie, it was my 'accessory hair' actually -- not the real thing. I mean, it's 'mine' - as Pastor Lisa says - it's mine cause' I have the receipt, but it's not really 'mine.'."

And he says, "why? Why did you do that?" And I said, "because it was taped on Wednesday and I needed a root job and wasn't getting one until the next day."

He looks at me like I'm a martian. "What in the heck is a root job?" he says.

Lisa and I just laughed our heads off and said, "Men..........you guys are so funny!"

They never fail to give us new comedic material, do they?

I've tried to explain a nail fill to Larry. He still doesn't "get" why I get a fill when I've already HAD a fill. "Yes dear, but that was almost three weeks ago..."

So funny, silly man.

p.s. the color on the wall that you see in the picture is "concord ivory" that I talked about yesterday...

Beautiful love the way its shaved up but still has the length of your crown over it. Its quite a big step going from 80's long to hip and happening in such a short time. I like your colour of your walls its very similar to my outside walls of our home. I have a colour called Astic Tan and Stallion in my home which I think is a wonderful warm colouring, the astic tan picks up the colours in the room so each room has a different shade but is all the same paint.When is your conference in Tampa bay this year need to do some planning would love to attend. Love Dee

Looks good :o). Be careful, though - I'm a short-haired girl who can testify that once you start cutting your hair, it becomes easier and easier to go shorter! My husband is used to my schizophrenic hairstyles, but yours probably isn't, LOL!!!!!

PD, I love the new hair-do. I know what you mean though about going from long to short. When you are not used to short hair it seems very hard. But this style fits you very well. I also love the color on the wall. Of course I love dramatic colors too and my whole is painted in different colors for every room so I always tell everyone who wants to try a new color to go for it and go bold!
LOL! LOL! Men are so funny!

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
