Weekend Wrap Up


First things first ~ here's a photo of us with Madeline before church this morning.

I did some special things with my family this weekend ~ going to see Marley & Me (what a great movie!), and getting my clearance Christmas tree (and a bonus one that was a surprise from Todd and Bonnie!) We got things for 2009 Christmas on 75% off and it was awesome. My new tree that I got will have the Martha Stewart Snowfall collection on it. I am so thrilled. I got these things for literally a few dollars. Amazing. I am so excited.

Have to be honest as I always am here on the blog that today was a difficult day. I have been feeling so poorly it was all I could do to get through the services and we had two today. My day was -- worship/choir rehearsal, teaching SS, morning worship, choir rehearsal later in the afternoon again, and then evening prayer service. By the time it was over I felt like I could hardly stand. I made a decision tonight not to wait until Wednesday to go to the doctors. I'm getting up and going first thing in the morning. I'm asking anybody reading to please pray for me that I would get a very quick appointment and get things resolved immediately. Thank you so much for all of my friends who are reading this and praying now.

Hey there, this is Sharon J. I'm working on class and I just read your twitter and I'm praying for you. I am sure things are going to be just fine. If you have any question with what you hear, get a different opinion. Until then and after, you don't forget the battle is the Lord's.

Love you, :)

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

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

I'm Just Being Transparent...

This year at the Stronger Conference, a young minister stopped me as I was walking out of the room at the conclusion of a workshop and she said, "I want to tell you something..." (I was all ears.) She said, "Do you notice how many of the speakers this weekend are saying, "Now, I'm just being transparent when I tell you..." or "I'm just keepin' it real..." I nodded yes. In fact, I mentioned that I was one of those speakers. I think I probably said a few times in both my keynote message and my workshop that I was just "keepin' it real." After I affirmed that yes, I had noticed that -- she said, "Do you know why they have to do that? They do it...and you do it, because so many people don't keep it real. So many in leadership aren't transparent, Deanna. That's why all these people speaking here feel an urge to declare their transparency.." I let her know that usually when I say, "I'm just kee
