In-love's are leaving
acai juice is staying


(sniff...sniff)

They leave today.

I can't believe it. It's gone by so fast, it's been unreal. We still have so much yet to do. So many things we had plans for. We never made it to Tarpon Springs. They'll just have to come back, soon, soon, soon...and that's all there is to it.

Last night we utilized our movie pass privilege as we do so often (our son works at Cobb Theatres) and the guys went to see Pink Panther and the girls went to see Confessions of a Shopaholic. It was great!

We are having lunch with Dustin and them, and then we will head to the airport and back to the church for "life as usual"...well, as usual as it can be in our household.

While here my mother in law has gotten me hooked on acai, pomegranate, and blueberry juices. She drinks 8 oz of the "Fusion V-8 stuff everyday and swears she has lost over 30 pounds because of it. Geez, if that was all there was to it, why didn't somebody tell me?! Anyway, I have started drinking it but actually not for the weight loss. Seriously. Really, stop laughing...I mean it. I noticed on the bottle it talked about antioxidants and the fact that there are 5 vegetables and 5 juices in every serving. That's pretty amazing.

Honestly on WW it is difficult to get in all five of each every single day. Doing it this way would actually accomplish that, health wise. I have gotten a lot more serious about my health these days...even more than my weight. Actually I'm sort of hoping the more serious I get about my health that the weight thing will fall more into line. Another thing about these juices is that they taste GREAT. I would not be drinking them if they didn't. I don't eat or drink ANYTHING I don't like. Fortunately or unfortunately depending on how you want to look at it -- I don't meet many things I don't like to eat or drink. But honestly these juices are really amazing tasting and the other day at the Brandon Mall I even had some frozen yogurt that was acai flavored and it was great.

Just a note to try them...you might like them.

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

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
