Blast from the past


From time to time I've decided to do these "blast from the past" posts here on the blog. They will just include things from the past I want to share. This is a photo from way back when my boys were just a little beyond the ankle-biter stage, in fact Jordan may have still been in it. Wait, um, he's 17 and may still be in it. (GRIN) Dustin wouldn't have the energy to bite ankles, but Jordan is still always trying to wrestle with me or anyone brave enough to take him on.

Time sure does fly.

I never thought I'd miss those days, but I do.

Thing I miss most? Naps with them. No, not them alone, me laying down and taking one with them. There is no more precious memory other than rocking them, which I also miss.

Larry and I had to do the show last night til 3 am. I knew I'd be zonked and may not have energy to post. In fact I am sleeping right now, I guarantee it. So I pre-sceduled this to post and will more than likely get up by noon since we probably went to Waffle House and got home at 5 am. At least that is what we usually do.

We did not get the garage done yesterday. We were so tired.

Hey Deanna,
Love the hair-do! Ha! and the color too!

Those were the days! Your kids were adorable at that age. Where did they go?

I look at pics of our girls and miss them at those ages. I'll just have to wait for the grandchildren....

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

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
