And to think...


I was upset when Larry wanted to get Maddie.

She is the highlight of my day. How did I live without her affection? What I initially thought would be the worst thing in the world might be my saving grace.

Here she is barking and whining at me today to let her over the barrier in the kitchen to be with me in the other room while I work. She was a little irritated that I did stop to take pictures, but not to pick her up and hold her. I had too much to do and couldn't keep a close eye on her in all the other rooms, so she was confined to the kitchen and she doesn't like to be in a room by herself. She's a people person...ummm...dog. Yes, I know she's a dog although I do forget sometimes.

I'm so glad you are enjoying this little mamma. What a cutie! Sorry to hear Geena wasn't good around people. I agree the pastor's animal has got to love people.

Mac the Beagle loves everybody. Especially if you come with a bacon treat. Shucks any snack would be find.

He got into the pantry and I just found a bag of cookies in my linen closet hidden behind the towels!

My dog thinks she's human and acts like a big cat - so it's really hard to know how to classify her :o). I am another one of those who never thought I'd be a dog person until my spouse insisted we have one...now I can't imagine life without her!!!!

Pastor Deanna, she really is a cutie! Still working on the hubby but to no avail.

Between you, Pastor Lisa and Leanne, I feel soooooo left out (lol). Continue to enjoy

What adorable pictures! Our pup who is now 9 mo old thinks she is human too. I enjoy playing with Izzy so much but there are times I wish we had a smaller dog. Izzy is a lab/austrailan shepherd/border collie mix. I am so happy that she has become a blessing to you!

Ok the time has come to finally tell you how cute little 'Moo Moo' is :-) I was getting too much of her via this blog but she grew on me quick. Haha! I love her whining at you. Our Iceis does the same thing. She's a pure white husky.

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
