I dream of simple things...

It's the simplest things in life that I love most.  Just thought I'd list a few today.

  •  Taking a nap with Maxie and Maddie.  It never gets old.
  •  Having something wake me up, (preferably rain) looking over at the clock and discovering I have a few more hours to sleep - burying myself under the covers even more and drifting off.
  • Spending a whole day in my bed without leaving except to use the restroom.  
  • Notice a lot of these things have to do with my bed?  Yeah, I guess I'm getting older.  I love rest!  And I earn every single bit of it, believe you me!!!  
  • Black tea with peach flavor -- I drink way more of this on a daily basis than any other person should ever consume, I'm convinced.  At least I do drink it unsweetened.
  • Olive Oil & Goat's Milk Almond soap from Lori's Soap and Sponge Market s in Tarpon Springs, FL.  I love, love, love this soap and every time I go to Tarpon I pick up a few bars, and try to keep them on hand.  They are not terribly expensive -- $3.50 each and they are large bars of soap, I just run out in between times of going.  I also try to keep the almond scrub on hand as it's just amazing.  After our last trip to Tarpon, I now have my friend Candy hooked on this soap too!  I'm telling you it's amazing.  If you don't live anywhere near here you can still order the soap on line and see what I am talking about for yourself.  
  • Using my snuggie at the movies.
  • Coffee/tea with friends.
  • Enjoying sunrise or sunset from my back patio in my rocking chair.  Truth be told I enjoy sunset a lot more.  At sunrise I want to be...(you guessed it)...BED!

It's so good to pamper yourself. I wish I had more time for it :)

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
