Yesterday...all my troubles seemed so far away...

I just love riding and walking through the streets of Savannah just lookin' at old homes...could do this for hours...oh wait a minute, we DID do this for hours...

The waving girl.  I love this because the pastor who did Savanna's dedication when she was a baby spoke of the waving girl in Savannah, GA.  He said the waving girl waves ships back home, but that Savanna would wave many souls to Christ back home.  I believe it.

THIS was the line at Mrs. Wilkes restaurant.  There were hundreds waiting.  We waited an hour and a half but it was totally worth it.  If you were to eat at just one restaurant in Savannah, GA I would probably recommend this one although I adore the Old Pink House.  Mrs. Wilkes is a place like NO other.  Every morning a HUGE LINE gathers.  It takes about an hour and a half no matter what time you go.  There are two small rooms of this restaurant, with four tables of ten in each room.  You wait until a table opens and then you are seated with strangers.  A lady said, "Just want to warn you, at this restaurant you are seated with strangers" and Candy replied, "oh, that's cool.  We're into strangers."  I laughed so hard.   

This was the spread on the table when we sat down at Mrs. Wilkes.  It was rather amazing.  You walk in and the food it already completely set on your table.  You just walk in sit down and start eating.  The fried chicken was amazing as well as the roast beef and there were probably 25 vegetable dishes on the table by the time all was said and done, plus banana pudding and peach cobbler.  And it was all OUSTANDING.  This is the kind of place you waddle out of. 

The Wilkes house.  Started out as a boarding house.  Mrs. Wilkes ran this boarding house when her husband was off working on the railroad.  It developed into the restaurant.  The way the staff works together to keep the food coming and the folks fed and through the doors is incredible.  We were noticing how well they work together as a team.  I would honestly wait longer than an hour and a half if necessary for this restaurant.  It's THAT good.
St. John the Baptist Church.  I love visiting churches and this was just magnificent taking in all the architecture.  Love taking pictures at churches...

Beautiful...I lit one myself...and prayed a prayer for Jordan who is leaving for boot camp on Tuesday.  (A whole 'nother story...)

From the vantage point in my pew where I just reflected a few minutes... 

Gosh could this be any more beautiful?

I really wanted to start singing but restrained myself...Galatians 5:22.

We're coming home this morning.   Service at Celebration Church in the morning...Jordan's last Sunday with us before he leaves for boot camp and it's my birthday.  Why God chose to do things this way, I don't know but I trust Him.

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
