Frozen Phalanges


This is a pretty cold day in Florida in my opinion. I only fitness walked outside for 20 minutes tonight - my fingers were frozen or at least they felt like it. So I came home.

Today I've been preparing for tomorrow - cleaning, ironing, going over teaching notes, and cooking.

Jordan made us what I call "African smoothies" today. They aren't really African but being that I had them every morning at the missionary's house (mangos, strawberries and bananas grew in their yard so they threw some in the blender every morning and that's what we had) that's what I call them. I made chicken stir fry today with fresh asparagus, yellow squash, carrots and onions. Jordan loves that! I just do it with a little olive oil and fresh garlic and we add soy sauce at the table. Just FYI I am 100% OP and doing awesome! Four pounds GONE since I have been strictly back on track. And I'm DETERMINED. Summer is coming in Florida (well yeah, it's coming everywhere but you know in Florida, it really comes if you know what I mean...) and I'm going to be ready to face it without fear.

Tonight is "spring forward" with the clocks and I never look forward to this night because of the loss of sleep and then the inevitable with people being late to church or missing no matter how much you remind them. In our church we have the "one call now" system where we record a call and it goes out to all our family's homes or cell phones and we sent a reminder call. Hopefully they will take note.

I have so much to do in less time tonight but I just made a decision today that I'm going to have a good night tonight and a good day tomorrow and if it doesn't all get done - OH WELL! (And that's a big thing for me to say because I'm a person who........likes things a certain way if ya know what I mean.)

Being that the temp is way down in Florida tonight I'll probably get a real good night's sleep. I'm expecting a great day in the house tomorrow!

It's so much fun talking to people who live in warmer climates!! I am guessing that whatever your "cold" temp was, if it were to be that same temp here right now, people would be walking around in spring jackets and lining up for blocks outside Cold Stone. Yes, this is how annoyingly COLD Wisconsin has been lately...

Heading to MY empty building that is sure to be completely packed out for SECOND service today instead of the usual first service crowd, lol!!!

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
