Madeline update

Maddie yesterday walking around on our bed. She is starting to be more like her old self although she's wearing this contraption on her head.

She's doing much better today, in fact she's getting into EVERYTHING again! The frustrating thing is, she has this stupid thing on her head and she's like a bull in a china shop (ha ha!) running through the house and knocking things over with it. We are really trying hard to train Maddie right and make her not only housebroken but a well behaved dog. It's taking an enormous amount of time, and I still think we might put her in Petsmart's obedience classes. Today I was trying to get my Zune earphones away from her as she picked them up and was chewing on them and she flung around because she was upset about me taking them from her, and knocked an iced tea over that was on the end table. She's back to her sometimes ornery self and I am ready for a break. I have been working on a zillion projects at one time which has not been easy. Larry has a board meeting tonight and I'm doing a bunch of stuff while trying to keep her under control. I hate to just put her in the kennel. I don't like to keep her in there unless she is sleeping. We will have some sense of normalcy again soon I'm sure. Larry held her while I took this picture of her below. She was even giving me an attitude about taking her photo so he just held her up and said, "you're getting your picture taken." I swear sometimes a dog can really be like a stubborn toddler.

PD just be careful with the lampshade on her head- if you take her outside and she walks with her head up and it is raining- she may drown - LOL-

those things are fabulous especially if you do not like your ankles or calves - dogs love running into them with them and if you think a dog is funny with it on- try seeing a cat- get your cameras out cause it is hysterical-
She will not need it for long-
if you all are with her- even not holding her you can take it off- just keep an eye on her so she is not after her sutures
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

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
