People of wonder

I'm carrying my stuff to church in this new tote bag I just got Friday:

I saw it at Walmart...couldn't resist it.  Besides it was only $7.  For a long time now people in the church have called me "Wonder Woman."  It all started years ago  on my birthday when they were bringing a cake out for me at church to blow out the candles and the sound person played the theme from "Wonder Woman" as we cut the cake.  It sorta stuck and since that time people have given me Wonder Woman t-shirts, pajamas, mugs,etc.  

I enjoy being a "Wonder Woman" for God.  Any Christian woman can be a wonder woman.  Did you know that?  For that matter, it's not limited to women!  Men can be people of WONDER!

Hebrews 2:4
"And God confirmed the message by giving signs and wonders and various miracles and gifts of the Holy Spirit whenever he chose."

I am headed to church this morning excited about what God will do, confirming His message through signs, wonders and various miracles and gifts of the spirit through His wonder women and men of God!  All it takes is a a surrendered heart -- an openness to what He wants to do.  God can do ANYTHING!!!!

I had a very busy day yesterday with an AMAZING day at life coaching -- I'm talking an absolutely phenomenal day -- I believe sweeping life changes are going to be made in some women's lives and I couldn't be more excited for them.  After a great morning at Life Coaching I went home so that Larry and I could spend the rest of the day cleaning in preparation for the Superbowl and for his parents to come visit from Maryland on Tuesday.  In between all that cleaning, I fit 3 miles of biking the pouring rain!  It was a mess out there but I felt so accomplished.  By the time I was done cleaning last night, just from walking around the house doing all that we did I took over 10,000 steps on my pedometer.  Yes, we worked THAT much.  I couldn't wait to sink into my big tub last night.

I am so thankful for all of God's blessings on me.  Every time I sit in my tub I think of my many friends around the world - in third world countries who have never known the joy of sitting in a bubble bath like this.  They don't even have clean drinking water. I have many people I actually count as "friends" who have to live this way.  They keep in touch with me personally, they are not just on a TV show or something.   It's my habit to always thank the Lord for this blessing that I have, and  pray a prayer for them.  Sometimes I question why I was ever born into such a blessed place as America.  I won't beat myself up over it, however I take it as my call to pray, and give as much as I can to help others who are not as fortunate.  So, I will enjoy my baths, but I will also spend the rest of my life helping others.

In other news, I can't wait for the Steelers to shred the Packers today. :)

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

This Could Have Ruined Everything... (But It Didn't!)

 No one would ever guess what happened to me this weekend in Jacksonville, 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

Why You Should Never Hijack a Comment Thread
Social media etiquette 101

One surefire way to kill your influence in social media and wear out your welcome fast is to become involved in derailing somebody’s comment thread with your own agenda. Networking and hijacking aren’t the same thing. It’s surprising how many people don’t understand that this is a guarantee for tearing down a platform as quickly as you build it. Passion is good, even necessary. I appreciate people's zeal for their personal core values. What is not appreciated is the attempt at a redirection of a comment thread when the comment has little or nothing to do with an original post or is twisted at best. Social media provides ample opportunity for all of us to share what’s important to us on our own platform. Eliciting others’ responses and developing connections largely depends on our ability to communicate and compel. Some people are open to receiving private communication from others although they aren’t always able to answer personally or at length. But hijacking a comment threa
