Somebody get me a vitamin!



This is a photo of Savanna & I yesterday as we were getting ready to go to the Currie wedding. She stuck out her hand and snapped this of us on our way out the door. (Her hair was dry by the time we got to the wedding 2 hours later in Orlando!) That's her new cute little dress she was wearing for the occasion, and meanwhile I was wearing one of my Africa dresses complete with jewelry I found that was just like what Pastor Jane had loaned me in Africa. I got blessed to find a replica at Bealls outlet...now that was God! :-)

As for today...it was a good day ~ nothing earthshattering to report. It was just a fine day which by standards of much of the rest of the world would be amazing, I guess! I am just so tired and looking forward to feeling back to "normal" again whatever normal is. Each day I get up and go about my work but can't wait to get back to bed. My home Christmas decorating is done and some cleaning but I have so much left to do and not a lot of energy to do it right now. I am counting on bouncing back to a normal schedule in a few days to a week. That whole time change, jet lag, really did a number on me not to mention pouring myself out to the masses. lol Although the house decorating is done the church decor is not complete but we are having a little gathering to get it done tomorrow and after a night's sleep I should be ready to join the group and tackle it.

In other news...Psalm 34 was on my mind when I woke up today and I read it to the choir believing it was for several people today. I know the Lord has His hand on our people and all of their needs. I choose to trust Him.

God moved in the gifts of the spirit during worship ~ always so welcome. The theme of the whole day from worship, gifts of the spirit to preaching, all meshed together in a beautiful way. Love when that happens!

We had a choir dinner and I ate two helpings of lasagna. So much for going on program today. :-) Well, I was going back OP on Monday so I guess that's alright. I have been craving Italian food like crazy since I got back from Africa. Why Italian versus anything else I do not know but I have wanted pasta, pasta, pasta. Tom also brought me a cherry pepsi today and hid it so no one else could get to it before I did. :-) Always nice to have folks watchin' out for me, ya know? (Thanks, Tom!) I actually brought it home and enjoyed a nice glass in the quietness sitting in front of our Christmas tree when I got home from rehearsal. Little things like this make me happy. Really folks, it doesn't take much...I am honestly a relatively simple person. (Some of you are thinking, yeah, right, but honestly if you really know me you know this is true. Little things make me happy, and also if you want to know what I'm thinking or how I feel, just ask. I'm not a game player, I just state it like it is in a straightforward way. Thus, the "relatively simple" label I just gave myself.)

Before I get too serious here, it's time for me to sleep again...g'night for now. Sleep tight my dear friends. I have a lot of good ideas on my mind I want to blog about and when I get the energy I can't wait to! I am actually taking vitamins but wondering if they are placebos. ha! ha!

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
