My three gems...and today's potpourri

Photo of my kiddos a few weeks ago when we were getting ready for Jordan's graduation.

When we got home from work last night Larry wanted us to go on a date. We went to the theatre to see Glenn Beck's Encore of the "Common Sense" tour. It was excellent. I hope somehow, everyone can see it if they never got to the theatre to see it. It was so funny -- I laughed so hard I cried and at one point, I just had my face buried in a napkin and wiped the tears for about 5 minutes straight while I laughed. If I wouldn't have had my face in the napkin I would have laughed so loud the whole theatre would have heard me. It was THAT funny. But it was also very inspiring and I was very moved by many things he said. The message is so needed and when his book, "Common Sense" comes out in a few weeks I can't wait to get it!

After the movie we went late night grocery shopping and watched TV and spent time together a few hours before bed.

Today on "Fun Friday" ~ our day off ~ I slept in. This was possible because the kids are now out of school. I had one client meeting (for one hour) for career coaching but other than that, I spent the day resting and catching up on friends blogs until late afternoon when I did some weeding, biked about 5 miles, walked 1 mile and then took a shower and relaxed. I really needed this day.

Tomorrow I have several projects to do in preparation for Sunday, however I should get a few hours rest too which I'm really looking forward to. I'm getting it wherever I can, and it's helping me in getting on the mend.

Oh yes, and ...Larry did the cooking today which was nice. :-) He made me homemade chicken noodle soup which is one thing I can eat on this special diet I'm on.

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

I'm Just Being Transparent...

This year at the Stronger Conference, a young minister stopped me as I was walking out of the room at the conclusion of a workshop and she said, "I want to tell you something..." (I was all ears.) She said, "Do you notice how many of the speakers this weekend are saying, "Now, I'm just being transparent when I tell you..." or "I'm just keepin' it real..." I nodded yes. In fact, I mentioned that I was one of those speakers. I think I probably said a few times in both my keynote message and my workshop that I was just "keepin' it real." After I affirmed that yes, I had noticed that -- she said, "Do you know why they have to do that? They do it...and you do it, because so many people don't keep it real. So many in leadership aren't transparent, Deanna. That's why all these people speaking here feel an urge to declare their transparency.." I let her know that usually when I say, "I'm just kee
