Slow to blog...



This is a short work week because of the Memorial Day holiday yesterday, and I am extra busy with Jordan's graduation this weekend and my sister coming in from North Carolina. I had a double pile up of work today and wouldn't you know it, my computer went on the fritz. Ughh!!! I have been slow to blog with all of this going on, but Larry has it fixed up now and I'm back on track so a quick update here before nodding off to bed...

Larry and I had a few hour meeting this morning with friends Pastor Ed & Janis Russo concerning some big stuff we're planning in our church right now. They are helping us with some things as we get ready for the big reveal, and we are ever so grateful and excited about what God is going to do!! Once it's public, I'll blog all about it, you can be sure.

After the phenomenal meeting with the Russo's I came back to delve into my work on the computer and discovered that it was completely screwed up and I did not get anything done but one order of service. I was ticked but made the most of it getting other things done. Larry did fix my computer and I was able to finish a few hours more work late this evening.

We also had dinner and went bowling as a family tonight with Emilie (Jordan's girlfriend) along with us. More about Jordan and Emilie this week...it deserves it's own blog post and I will be back with one. We sure did have a lot of fun at the bowling alley...played two whole games plus another 1/2 game of just fun bowling doing crazy stuff like left handed, backwards, and all kinds of other goofy stuff. Larry tried something and ended up falling right on his rear end and I laughed so hard the tears were rolling down my face.

Until then I'll just post a few photos from yesterday and today. We went to a party at the Garland's yesterday for the holiday and then had our family outing tonight. As you can see, Jordan is quite the comic. During the party he took a Ashley Mayercak's little swim vest and floaties and put them on and was entertaining everyone with quite a few antics. Where he gets this...I don't know. :)

I've got so much to get done before his graduation and party, I don't even want to think about it... oh well, not to worry, it will all get done as it usually does.

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
