Sunday wrap up


Busy day and I'm so drained right now.

Amidst all the cleaning we're still doing, we had a super full Sunday schedule as usual. It began early like it does every week. I got up as I usually do while all is still pitch black and put on some hazelnut coffee which is my saving grace first thing every Sunday morning. :-)

Several last minute call outs/sicknesses, etc. to deal with this morning and I told the team, "we've got to leap several tall buildings in a single bound this morning, but I'm used to this, so come hang on for the ride..." and they did. It actually went incredibly smooth for all that happening. I was rather amazed!

Went right from church to a meeting with my women's leaders over lunch and we had a good time as usual. Just charting stuff for the next few months and expecting God to do some significant things.

I came home, slept for 30 minutes, then got up and freshed up for our couples barbeque that we had tonight. It was really fun! Great food and even better fun!

I'm tired, with an incredibly busy day before me tomorrow. I think I'm going to sleep well tonight. It just started pouring down rain and I love to sleep at moments like this when I can hear the rain.

Thank you Lord, for small blessings...they are significant to me.

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
