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.

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
