A sprinkler a day...


It was a wonderful day. I love Tuesdays.

I work from home on Tuesdays. I get more work done than any other day plus have time for lots of other things I want to do, because I breeze through my work due to the lack of interruptions.

At the end of my work day I got my nails done pretty pink with beautiful designs. (I get my designs for free because I'm such a faithful client. Jesus has blessed me. See what tithing will do for you, my friends? In addition to knowing you are obeying the Word of God, you might also get free nail designs! LOL) When my hands and feet are freshly maincured it always gives me a better "put together" feeling.

When Larry got home it was time to go on our date. We've had this planned almost a month. I was so excited for a date night with REGULAR food! We have been looking forward to going on a date, after our fast was over, where we would be unlimited in our choices. Even though we could go anywhere, we chose a place right in our neighborhood -- Buffalo's. We did wings, steak, shrimp, etc. It was awesome, and we just talked and enjoyed one another's company. Bernie and Lisa watched Savanna for us. Dustin had plans for a date with Casey (takin' after his Daddy) so we had to make other arrangements for Savanna but it's never a problem. She went over and had tacos with them and swam.

We came home after our date and I wanted to walk a few miles. I have to weigh in tomorrow which I want like a hole in the head after being a carnivore extraordinaire the last three days, but I don't regret it. Right now I am still bowing down in Thanksgiving to God and praising Him for red meat. I'm not sorry I'm eating it, I've just needed to work harder on burning it off. I called Lisa and left a message that I was going but she didn't get it in time to meet me. On my way home she was driving up to the gym. She picked me up and instead of me walking the last mile or so home I went to the gym with her and we did weights for about 20 minutes.

On our way out of the gym at about 9 pm we were walking to the parking lot and all of a sudden on come the Lexington Oaks sprinklers...the big ones. Yep. We were caught in the middle of them and got all wet. We were trying to weave in and out of them and miss them but to no avail. I tried to run up the hill and got stuck up there in a worse one. Finally she said, "oh well, we're stuck..." I said, "I guess I'm doing my hair again when I get home..." (Styling) No biggie. It was quite humorous, actually. But I did say, "what are they going putting these sprinklers on when the gym doesn't close til' 10 pm?" Go figure.

I'm home now and we're checking out American Idol that we Tivo'd. David Archeleta just melted my heart. That boy has a voice that's like butter.

Future plans for tonight include spending some more time with the Teeb and capping off our night together. Mmmhmmm.

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

Why You Should Never Hijack a Comment Thread
Social media etiquette 101

One surefire way to kill your influence in social media and wear out your welcome fast is to become involved in derailing somebody’s comment thread with your own agenda. Networking and hijacking aren’t the same thing. It’s surprising how many people don’t understand that this is a guarantee for tearing down a platform as quickly as you build it. Passion is good, even necessary. I appreciate people's zeal for their personal core values. What is not appreciated is the attempt at a redirection of a comment thread when the comment has little or nothing to do with an original post or is twisted at best. Social media provides ample opportunity for all of us to share what’s important to us on our own platform. Eliciting others’ responses and developing connections largely depends on our ability to communicate and compel. Some people are open to receiving private communication from others although they aren’t always able to answer personally or at length. But hijacking a comment threa
