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

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
