5 quirky facts


1) I love looking at new nail polish colors - particularly the OPI colors. Right now Savanna and I are both wearing Gargantuan Green Grape, shown here in photo.
2) I never met a potato chip I didn't like. Well, almost never.
3) I take a bath more days of the week than a shower. I love my tub and the more challenging I think my day is going to be, the more I'm apt to start out in there than in the shower. It makes at least a little difference when I start my day off with Bath and Body Works Moonlight path, and soak a few minutes in the quietness of morning before my crazy day starts.
4) I love singing trio and quartet music.
5) Some of my best friends are so identical to me it's scary and some are so opposite of me that it's a bit strange that we can be such good friends.

There is NOTHING like a good tight interwoven harmony... NOTHING!

Isn't Bath & Body's Moonlight Path the most relaxing smell? It's my favorite!

I LOVE that color!!! Getting my nails done is not currently in my budget - is there somewhere a person like myself could buy it?

I do not think I have met a potato chip I did not like either :)
Danella - I agree!

Lori - Yes!! That's why I start my day with it or end with it if I've had a hard day. It's true aromatherapy. Such a relaxing scent. Everyone knows I love it. A couple in the church, one of our board members in fact, introduced me to it -- the wife uses it all the time and I noticed it, so then they got the products for me one Christmas but now others know I like it too and I have received everything from the Moonlight Path candles to the plug in air freshner, body spray, cologne, lotion, yada yada. I am crazy about it. I take one whiff of it and it puts me immediately in a calmer mood and I think, "how bizarre is that?" You're right, it's great and so much better than smoking weed. So glad I quit that. lol (I'M JUST KIDDING!!!)

Leanne - YES! You can purchase OPI colors. Most nail shops also have the bottles available for purchase. Or sometimes you will find them in a makeup store. They are a few dollars more than what you will find in a drug store, however it's worth it. The quality of the polish is better by a mile. In fact when I get my nails done I never go with anything but an OPI color even if another brand has a color I like better, the durability of the OPI color in comparison is pretty amazing. (Mine NEVER chips and I do mean NEVER.) Okay, I know, I should basically get paid for advertising for them...I'll stop there.

Michele - me neither. (sigh) As I go to try to work off these extra pounds...

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
