Celebration Church. It kicks off this morning with me teaching, "Thriving Through Incompatibility...being married to your OPPOSITE and doing more than just SURVIVING!!!" After that my husband and I will tag team in the morning service, a message called, "PARTNERSHIP 101". This evening we'll have a banquet at the church followed by two more sessions. It's going to be an exciting day! I believe it's going to bring change to people's lives and I can't wait to see what God does. If you live anywhere near Tampa and want to come, c'mon over and join us for the first two sessions (9:30 and 10:30 am). Reservations are required for the dinner and last two sessions. To see if there is still availability email Candy Rivera here.

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
