Monday reflections

Sorry to all peeps who get irritated when I don't post in the mornings. :) I know I affected your day so please accept my apologies. lol

Mondays are always slammed and today I was trying hard to knock out projects while being extremely tired because after leadership meeting Sunday night we talked late into the night with some who stayed. Always worth it though! What precious people...what a great team. We had a fantastic day at church yesterday, by the way!

After work I went home, biked 3 and 1/2 miles and then got ready to go meet the Garlands at Sonny's for Tom's Dad's "remembrance'" dinner. Today was his Dad's birthday and since his Dad has passed away he always eats at Sonny's on today's date since it was his Dad's favorite place to eat. It's a hard day for Tom and he wanted us to join him, so we did. Not that we don't like joining them ANYTIME! Tonight we had a good time talking and laughing lots and thinking of happy things. I came home to work on a few writing projects and now I"m hitting the sack with the Teeb.

That was my day. I'll post some deep thoughts later this week...promise!

I love Sonny's BBQ! Too bad it's not a northern thing. Well, maybe it's good or I would want to eat there all the time. Instread we plan our trips south around when meal times are and where the Sonny's are!

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

I am a Spiritual Abuse Survivor
Guest Post: Leanne Weber

I met Leanne Weber years ago through Pastoring Partners Network . She now serves as one of our amazing PPN writers. Back when I first met her she was pastoring and in the midst of an abusive church situation. I as well as several of our other leaders at PPN walked through that painful journey with her and observed her as she went from hurting to whole. She's got an amazing story to share and the following is just part of it. 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.             I am a certifiable mess right now. I cannot get any work done, because I don't even want to be here. I am just...tired. I am tired of dealing with church people. If I was truly called, then I'd be able to handle this. I am sick of the only thing keeping me here being the fact that we have bills to pay, and we are finally in a place where we are fi
