Family changes



Yesterday was Savanna and Jordan's school registration. I had to face reality -- Savanna is not in elementary school anymore. Tonight is also her first night in youth group. I just haven't been at a place mentally to face the change without a pile of tears. But reality is, I also haven't been able to walk to the mailbox or brush my teeth the past few weeks without crying. (lol)

Savanna's fine with all the changes as usual. She loves growing up! She's such a confident child and flows well with change. She's excited about everything from her new school t-shirt to what she's going to pack for her lunch the first day. And I'm happy to see her so happy. We registered Jordan for his senior year. He's looking forward to finishing up. There's so much to take care of ...just made the appt. for his senior portraits... and I've sort of been in a fog trying to remember everything to do. I'm glad I had a year's break between Dustin's graduation and his. (They are just 17 months apart in age.) Dustin has been registered for his college classes this semester for a while and he just got another job (in addition to his Publix job) at the new Cobb Theater that's opening up. He's working a lot of hours, and keeping a lot going and I'm so proud of him.

Larry has been working and when he's not he's watching the Olympics.

I'm reading a lot, writing a lot and talking to God whether He talks back right away or not.

Love to all,

Hope you noticed in this post what all you have going on! One going to middle school (I so relate, so is ours) one being a senior and one off to college. You have every right to be tired and emotionally spent. That is alot of change. You are such an inspiration and I just want you to know it. I think you rock!

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
