Larry just got even sexier!


...and all he had to do was clean the garage!


I'm sure if he knew I would have reacted the way I did he would have tackled it even sooner. (GRIN) He took an entire truckload to the dump to throw away and still has a little bit of organizing to do and a few things to sell in a yard sale, but 95% of the work out there is done.

We have been working on a myriad of projects around the house. I'm sure I'm not the only one who feels like this cycle of house stuff will NEVER end, and really in all reality, it won't! But at times, you feel more in control of it than others. At least I do. Now is one of those times. Although the majority of my house is very together right now, I am sitting here looking at my room which is a mess but I'm too tired to do anything about it until after church tomorrow.

We have been painting, doing deep cleaning, yard work and more. Plus Savanna has a school project we've got to help her with that was due this past week however she had been sick and home from school for 3 days so it's got to be done this weekend.

Aside from visiting with our friends who just moved here, I have spent this weekend wrapping up church preparations, returning phone calls, doing pruning and weeding in my yard. (Keeping up on my yard is an endless job I've blogged about often here in my frustration. I'm trying to find new ways to like it more. Since I got my Zune I do enjoy it more as I listen to lots of preaching podcasts now while I am out there weeding.)

Aside from all that I cooked and cleaned up the kitchen several times today and washed three loads of clothes. I'm absolutely EXHAUSTED however very excited because tomorrow is going to be an amazing day in the house at our church.

I've waited for this day for a long time, that's all I'll say. For now.

I listen to preaching cd's and podcasts too. Funny thing is...some of my best times hearing from God are when I start a teaching and God takes me somewhere else. I just follow Him in the direction He's taking me. I don't hear the teaching anymore and it's just me and Him.
I just thought you'd like to hear this. I don't know how unique it is.
It only happens when I don't expect it but sometimes I know He wants to go there. I am pretty sure it's only when somebody's talking/preaching and not singing.

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
