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

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
