Lookin like a fool wit ya
pants on the ground...


Hysterical!!!

Our family cracked up Wednesday night when we saw this on AI and I just had to watch it again.  Everybody I know loves it.  This guy is great...

Even more funny to me is what Savanna did with this song.  This week is soccer tryouts at her school.  They are making cuts throughout the week, and yesterday more cuts were announced, and so far she has made the team!  Final cuts are made today and we will know this afternoon about whether she is officially on the team. 

Well... speaking of fools, yesterday she thinks she might have  found a "fool proof" way of gaining victory over opponents on the field.  (We'll see if it was fool proof or not later this afternoon -- it either really helped her or hindered her.)  Yesterday they had a scrimmage and right in the middle of it she would start loudly singing this song, "Pants on the Ground" and the opponent would get all flustered and just stop, burst out laughing or mess up and just not know how to respond.  Meanwhile she just kept right on running and playing soccer while singing, "pants on the ground".  That's my girl!  Sheer GENIUS!  (I hope!  We'll see if she makes the team.  If not she won't try this technique next time.  LOL)  By the way, several students asked her afterwards, "did you write that song?"!  They must not be American Idol watchers.

Deanna...that is too funny! Savanna...you go girl! Hope you make the team. I know they could use someone with a few tricks up her sleeve! Just keep singing the song and they could have a perfect season! LOL

Reminds me of the episode of Glee when all the football players got in a line and performed Beyonce's "Single Ladies" to psych the other team out. Hysterical!!!

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 is u…

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 keeping …

What To Do First to Make a Profit

Today on Seth Godin's blog, he said:

It's tempting to decide to make a profit first, then invest in training, people, facilities, promotion, customer service and most of all, doing important work. In general, though, it goes the other way.
Yes, it does. If you are waiting to make a profit before you do these things, in my experience you're  not going to make a profit. So many organizations, ministries and churches are struggling with financial issues. I know your pain. As anyone who follows our story knows, our ministry was in a ton of debt four years ago when I came on as director.  Since that time, we've gotten out of debt and turned a profit every year.  God has done amazing things through out team, for which we give Him the glory!

I find that what Seth is saying here is absolutely true, with one disclaimer. For Christian leaders, spiritual disciplines must always be first. Before we started investing and training and all of that, seeking God for his blessing and…
