Weekend Potpourri

Thursday was Dustin's birthday...after work we went to dinner as a family and I had made him a MRSA cake as he requested...

Then on Friday it was our day off.  I love my Fridays!  I live for them, mostly to rest.  Most of the day I stayed in my PJ's I was so exhausted.  Larry and Max stayed there with me for the most part...that's always fun.  We watched movies in bed.

Max lays between Larry and I and has to have one of us petting him constantly.  We don't mind.

Friday night Larry and the kids went to the Celebration Church softball game where Larry and Jordan played.  The team won. :)   After that they came home and I had rolled out of bed and gotten showered and dressed and the five of us went to a late night showing of "In Time."  The boys' friend Stephen went too.  Stephen has been like a family member for the past ten years and has practically lived here at times.


On Saturday morning I went and got my first pedi since the burn.  There is finally a new layer of skin and no open wounds so I could do that.  It's been almost a month.  Of course Mai took one took at it and said, "Deeeennnnaaaaa...whah happpeeened?  Yoo o-tay?"  So sweet.  I am putting vitamin E and Aloe on it daily and really hope the scar fades.

Once my pedi dryed I put on my running shoes and completed day 3 of "couch to 5K".  Amazingly I have done this three days this week and am still alive. 

Aside from cooking a big pot of beef vegetable soup for dinner Saturday and then getting my world famous pot roast prepared to go in the crock pot for today, Saturday evening was mostly spent house cleaning.  Thankfully everything for church was complete earlier in the week.  Usually I'm tying up a lot of loose ends on Saturday but this was a week was different.

Today's going to be a great day at Celebration!  I can't wait to see what God will do!  We've been having some amazing services and I know God is ready to download something great today!

First of all, the cake looks really good, but what is a MRSA cake? All I could think of was that skin thing everyone was talking about a few years ago. Secondly, I did that couch to 5K thing and loved it and lost 22 lbs. about a year and a half ago. I stopped and gained most of it right back. Never stop...just keep doing it. It's such a great feeling! Congrats to you!

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

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

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
