The in-love's are here!


Last night my mother-in-law informed me that she gets upset when she wakes up and I have not already posted a blog for the day and she has to wait until later on in the day, or Lord forbid, night time to read my post. My sister Kim also informed me of this a few months ago and said it gives her great angst to get to work in the mornings and not be able to read my post first thing. Evidently some folks start their morning with coffee, tea and ME! Of course these are my family members...I know the masses aren't doing this. But for these folks I love so much I'm going to try to do better with making sure I post in the morning all the time rather than evening so I don't screw up their day. :-) lol


My in-laws (I hate to even call them that...they are more like "in-love's" as I'm thankful I have their love in my life and they really are the best...) got here last night. They flew in from Maryland and by the time they got to our house it was about 11:30 pm. It's so good to see them. I am excited to have them here for a week. They will be with us at church tonight! Yay!

Last night we stayed up and talked til' real late, even the kids and we told them they'd just have to go through the school day sleepy for this time. They don't mind. Last night Savanna went to sleep with her cell phone in her pajama pocket. When she rolled over it called our house at 5:30 this morning, twice! We couldn't figure out what was going on. Finally when she woke up this morning we figured it out. It's something to laugh about now but when it happened it was rather confusing.

My mother-in-law is so in love with Maddie...she's become smitten just like I am. This morning she's already taken her for two walks. This little bundle of joy is getting so much attention, it's amazing. She is so blessed but so are we.

This is so funny, I came back from lunch and thought, has she posted anything yet? And to come here and see I am not the only one who needs you first thing in the morning.

Hahaha, this is sooooo funny, to be honest PD if you're usually my Morning Devotion - yep that's right and I must admit there are times when I think to myself, "WHAT IS GOING ON, WHEN IS SHE GOING TO POST!"

The pressure is on now especially once the confessions start pouring in - lol

I would have to agree PD- I get up a look forward to seeing what your thoughts are - usually check before leaving work and when I get to work just in case- yes I am a blog junkie so nope Kim and the rest of your family are not the only ones- Love you

Ok I confess, on very rare ocassions I do not check your blog in the morning. But a normal morning after the kids are at school consists of checking facebook, email and your blog! Just trying to keep up with my dear friend! But I am never upset if there's not a post...I welcome the change!
Aw, thanks guys. Wow, so sweet...

I love ya!

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
