Things I did today


Today I worked from home and got the last few church things done before Thanksgiving (remotely from home) and then made two homemade pies for Thanksgiving...pumpkin and cherry. Pie is probably my favorite dessert of all time. My grandmother used to make excellent pies...the absolute best. I don't quite come up to her standard but I try hard. I am also making something special for Larry's birthday which is Friday. I won't put the details here, being that he reads my blog daily -- good husband that he is. (GRIN)


I cleaned out my spice cabinet today and rearranged it. I've been wanting to do that for four years. Seriously. It's waited that long. It's a major job as the cabinet is large and being that I am a serious cook I have a gazillion spices, cooking and baking products. For some reason the mood struck me today to just do it.

Dustin is at college in classes til late tonight, Jordan has an away soccer game tonight and Larry has a board meeting. I am going to get another dish made for Thanksgiving, and do some light cleaning and go to bed early again. I know many people wouldn't understand how I could be this tired after a good night's sleep, but all I can say is I truly am tired. Thanks to all who gave me the advice to slow down and allow myself to take time to recooperate. Aside from doing these few things I am resting as much as possible and going to bed early again tonight without guilt.

Wish I could say I made my pumpkin and cherry pies...never made them before. I store bought them..if I could get someone to teach me how to make a home-made cherry or apply pie I would be estatic!
Thank you for the comment about my header. Sent you an email. GET SOME REST! You are a crazy woman! Happy Thanksgiving!

Have a Happy Thanksgiving - and as far as pies go? I'm in charge of the veggie tray for my family's Thanksgiving, if that tells you anything (Oh, they SAY it's because we are traveling 7 hours to get there, but we all know that's not entirely true, lol!).

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
