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

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
