3 Strange Things I Do

I have about 50 pairs of underwear in my drawer but I only actually wear the same 15 pairs, wash them and go through the same 15 again.  I have no idea why I have these other 35 perfectly good underwear in my drawer that just sit there.  I just can't bring myself to get rid of them.


I read someone's facebook wall all the time that I am not a friend with, have no mutual friends with, have never met and more than likely never will.  I happened on their page one day and am kinda fascinated with watching their facebook life from afar.  If they change the privacy setting of their wall it's really gonna devastate me.  


The Fugitive is one of my favorite movies.  No matter how many times I watch it I get really nervous and pray to God that Richard escapes even though I already know he is going to escape.

What strange things do you do?   (Keep it clean, please!)

I annoy my husband by printing Scripture out in Greek, taping it to the bathroom mirror and not telling him what it says...

i've also been known to whip out my cell phone, mid conversation, and send a text message about another subject to the person I'm talking to...without missing a beat.

I occasionally paint the dog's toenails...
Ha! Those are great!

I have to sleep with socks on, no matter how hot it is. I can't stand to sleep in bare feet, and I have been this way ever since I was a child.

I used to work in the beauty industry so sometimes when I look at people I think in my mind what I would do to fix their haircolor or what I would do differently on their makeup. This is usually when I am in the mall people watching.

When eating hard candy and my children ask for some, I give them all of the "GREEN" ones, hate green candy even if they don't have a different flavor...

I sleep on the edge of the bed and then pray that I don't fall off once asleep...

I re-write a paper over and over until it's perfect with no scribbles, etc even though I'm going to type it soon after... the hubby HATES THIS WITH A PASSION, lol
Wow Erika, that is funny. I have to sleep with socks if it's the least bit cold. I can't sleep with cold feet. Then as soon as they warm up, I reach underneath, pull the off and throw them on the floor and pick them up in the morning when I get up. Habits!

Melissa,I realize in the middle of the night that I'm on the edge and scoot back over...I hate it that I always gravitate towards the edge. I guess that's just me..."edgy"...ha ha!

I rub my foot to fall asleep,It soothes me. I own shoes in the three digit area.( Never had them growing up) I put bible verses sticky notes every where.( change them in new seasons of life)I hate my feet tucked in cause I feel trapped.So there in and out all night. MY POOR HONEY! I LOVE BRAS!!!! Have tons but like you PD I wear a lot of the same ones. You make me feel normal.I hate to feel dirty or that I might smell unpleasant, So I bathe in the morning at night and sometimes in between. OK PD thanks for loving me and making me feel normal!
I can't stand for my feet to get dirty. I wash them especially during sandal weather many times throughout the day and apply lotion.
Candy, I rub my foot too,on the blanket. Wow, we are sistas from another motha! And I bathe morning and night too. Probably why my skin dries out at times but I can't help it, I can't go to bed dirty.

LaDonna, I should probably be applying lotion...

I thought and thought and couldn't come up with something odd that was also interesting. Then it hit me. Ever since I was a kid, I have loved to take chocolate frosting from the can, put it in a bowl and and mix it with peanut butter. Then I eat the entire thing. No one knows I do this. I usually feel sick to the stomach afterward because it is so rich and heavy, but I just can't help myself. It is sooooo good! I do it about once a year, and then vow never again....until I get the craving.

I'm Just Being Transparent...

This year at the Stronger Conference, a young minister stopped me as I was walking out of the room at the conclusion of a workshop and she said, "I want to tell you something..." (I was all ears.) She said, "Do you notice how many of the speakers this weekend are saying, "Now, I'm just being transparent when I tell you..." or "I'm just keepin' it real..." I nodded yes. In fact, I mentioned that I was one of those speakers. I think I probably said a few times in both my keynote message and my workshop that I was just "keepin' it real."

After I affirmed that yes, I had noticed that -- she said, "Do you know why they have to do that? They do it...and you do it, because so many people don't keep it real. So many in leadership aren't transparent, Deanna. That's why all these people speaking here feel an urge to declare their transparency.." I let her know that usually when I say, "I'm just keeping …

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 is u…

What To Do First to Make a Profit

Today on Seth Godin's blog, he said:

It's tempting to decide to make a profit first, then invest in training, people, facilities, promotion, customer service and most of all, doing important work. In general, though, it goes the other way.
Yes, it does. If you are waiting to make a profit before you do these things, in my experience you're  not going to make a profit. So many organizations, ministries and churches are struggling with financial issues. I know your pain. As anyone who follows our story knows, our ministry was in a ton of debt four years ago when I came on as director.  Since that time, we've gotten out of debt and turned a profit every year.  God has done amazing things through out team, for which we give Him the glory!

I find that what Seth is saying here is absolutely true, with one disclaimer. For Christian leaders, spiritual disciplines must always be first. Before we started investing and training and all of that, seeking God for his blessing and…
