Deanna Montana



Got this idea from Sharon over at A Hoosier Family.

Try a few yourself by going to http://www.faceinhole.com/! This is part of what I'm doing today on "Fun Friday" - my day off - to amuse myself. I have to figure out what to do now. My original plans for the day have changed. Why?

I was supposed to get my permanent crown today (on my tooth...my heavenly one's still being made). However, on this day which is ONE IN A MILLION, my day is CLEAR because the dentist office called this morning and said they have an emergency to deal with and can't do my crown today. Drats! Now I'm just sitting RIGHT HERE. I thought I would CRY. I wanted to say, what do you think that EVERYTHING'S ABOUT YOU? All this because my tooth was GOOD AND BROKEN. Now I'm just sitting here AS I AM. Another week of putting up with this temporary one that I have to eat ever so gingerly with!!?? Now another week is gonna START ALL OVER with me having to be careful of this crown not coming off when I eat. I know the wait will be WORTH IT, but the point is, I will have to wait, and WHO SAID it will be easy to avoid eating hard or crunchy things on the left hand side of my mouth? Another week of avoiding candy (which I should be doing in the first place anyway).

The boys are going to PK camp today (see previous post from today) and it's just Savanna Montana and I left with Larry. We'll have to do something special, just the three of us. Or maybe just a GIRL'S NIGHT OUT. Whatever the case, we need something that will be THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS. :-) I'll just get ready and put on my OLD BLUE JEANS and we'll do something special because LIFE'S WHAT YOU MAKE IT. When she gets home from school I'll have to say, LET'S DANCE! WE GOT THE PARTY! So put down your back pack ZIP-A-DEE-DOO-DA, and let's have a blast...so much fun it'll be as IF WE WERE A MOVIE!

When the dentist office called this morning to cancel I should have said, "that's okay...NOBODY'S PERFECT... and...I know stuff happens and THIS IS LIFE... but THE OTHER SIDE OF ME has a tooth that needs fixing... and I MISS YOU... I MISS YOU Dr. Ghabbour, and my tooth needs you desperately! So when will I SEE YOU AGAIN? But that would have been THE WRONG WAY to deal with it. Nope, didn't say that to the lady who called me on the phone this morning from the office, even though I GOT NERVE. (Usually!)

p.s. Obviously I'm joking about my reaction to the dentist office... I love my dentist and my dentist office!!! (Coast Dental in Wesley Chapel) They rock!!! I completely understand emergencies, after all, I'm a pastor and much of my life deals with emergencies. If you don't have a little girl in your house and have no idea of Hannah Montana or her songs this post won't make much sense to you. Everything in CAPS is a title of one of her songs. I hear them often, coming loudly from my daughter's room. In everything she does she's determined to MAKE SOME NOISE, just like her Momma. :-)

By the way, when we saw Hannah Montana's movie with our friend Jenn Hart and her daughter Morgan, I told them I became immediately inspired...I'm writing a sermon series, all with titles from Hannah's songs. Some of them are just perfect for it! Think about it!

LOL!!! I'm actually considering writing a purity/self-esteem course for my pre-teen girls using the titles of Hannah Montana songs...I officially got the approval from my SP's to do one (YAY!!!) and I want to make it really good...hmmm...perhaps your blog is a conformation?!?!?!

Nobody's perfect. I got to work it...again and again 'til I get it right! You're a true friend. I'm with a friend right now and my daughter's name is the same as her daughter's name. My daughter/I are going to present them with gifts and make a tribute using the song about true friends. On another note, I thought about using the nobody's perfect song in a sermon illustration too!

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
