Sister Act

I was going to take Shari's photo last night when she was unpacking her suitcase but I thought she might hit me.  No, she wouldn't really.  But I'm sure it would have irritated really her, being that I had already just cajoled her into sitting at the piano to sing two Rita Springer songs and a Chris Tomlin song before going to bed last night at 12:40 am.  All this after she was going through airports and traveling half the day to get to Tampa and had jet lag.  Yeah, a great sister I am.  "You're exhausted??  LET'S GO SING!!!"  LOL 

I refrained from taking any photos last night and decided I'd steal this pic from her facebook.

  I worked most of the day yesterday trying to blast through as many work projects as possible before she got here and trying to ignore the fact that half of the Christmas stuff is STILL up at my house.  I have only had time to take two trees down so far. There's so much left to do, but it's probably just as well.  When she walked in the house she shrieked, "Oh Christmas!   Yes!!   It's still decorated for Christmas!  Yay!!!"  (I didn't have the heart to say, "Hey, hold off on your excitement.  YOU are going to help me take all this down this week."  Ha ha!) 

Larry and I picked her up from the airport and all of us were starving so we went to get some dinner and then to the grocery store so I could pick up the ingredients to make the broccoli-chicken casserole she likes.     After trekking through the grocery store it was back to the house where I said, "hey, let's work on your new resume."    She says, "Deanna, my brain is fuzzy right now, I've just been traveling all day..." to which I replied, "No problem, let's go sing!!!"   

Today's another day.  She's going to sleep in and she needs to.  It's just as well...I  need to work anyway.  Like I said yesterday, she is just along for the ride with me this week while I work and will probably help me with some projects as well.    It's good to have her here.  By the way, we have some surprises cooked up for this week that we're going to do together.  Hint:  here's a photo from an interview that Shari and I did together the last time she visited.  What might take place this weekend?  You never know...

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
