100 pounds of sweetness!

I missed him so much while I was at district council...



Here we are taking a little nap together yesterday on my day off...Fun Friday!  Max has been snuggling up to me since we brought him home at just a few weeks old, at two or three pounds.  He was so tiny he could fit in the palm of one hand.  For the first few months of his life he slept right under my chin each night...until he was old enough to stop crying at night and go into his kennel.  I could have put him in the kennel the first night but his whimpering just broke my heart, and I couldn't do it.  He stayed with me and was comforted by the warmth of sleeping right under my chin.  I didn't mind...although I won't speak for Larry.  :) 

Max soon matured enough to sleep on his own each night.  Even so he still spends a little time snuggling with me each day and we take a nap if I'm off and able to take one.

He still has the same pattern of sleeping right under my chin...will often  come and plop down on me -- all 100 lbs of him!  Doesn't matter how big he gets, he's still Momma's baby...

I hate when I have to leave him.  My kids all chide me about how spoiled rotten he is.  They say, "Mom, you've raised him to be such a baby!"  Yep.

Home sweet home...back to kids, our sweet bulldogs (Max and Maddie), and Celebration Church...where I'm leading women's life coaching today.  Yay!

It's gonna be a great morning!

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

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
