Please pray for us!!

It's unbelievable!!!
We've searched everywhere!

Maddie and I woke up to a stark reality yesterday.
By the afternoon we realized the cold, hard truth.
Daddy and Mommy were gone.
 This reality was met with shock and disbelief.
 We are trying to get our bearings.

 I am trying to show leadership and take charge of this situation but it's not easy.  
I try to get through to Maddie but she can't hear me anyway.  (She's deaf.  Remember?)
I just want to bury my head under the covers and try not to think about what's happening...
Last night I just dreamed of them walking in the door this morning and setting our world right side up again. 
 I'm desperately in need of a breakthrough, friends.
At least Maddie and I have each other to lean on even though she can't hear me. 
 It's just important right now that we be near each other.
Even Kayte feels sorry for us that we're without them this week...
Last night I was so discouraged she anointed me, laid paws on me and said, "In Jesus name, take this depression from Max..."  I still felt oppressed when the prayer was finished but I didn't want to admit it.
 Maddie sent out a tweet on Twitter this morning to see if anybody knew their whereabouts.  She also Googled some research on missing parents but finally decided to just go to Biblegateway and read the 23rd Psalm and comfort herself in all this...she soon flipped over to Hebrews to read about faith. 
Maddie's faith is so strong especially since her back was healed last year.  (Thanks for the prayer for that again, by the way.)  She said the same people that prayed her up off of this sick bed will pray that we'll be okay this week without them...
She said this morning that she has faith that they'll be back again soon.  She's watching out the window and waiting.  Hope deferred makes the heart sick, my friends...

 I've dug my paws into the carpet over this.  I need a faith enhancer.  Maybe a bone?  A new toy?  Sometimes you just need a confirmation, ya know?

Please pray for us for strength.  We believe in faith that they are coming back, we just don't know when.  Thank you for standing in faith with us.

We love you,

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, 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

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
