Weekend Potpourri

Here's what's in my heart, in no particular order. Get ready for random.

I'm "good and tired" tonight. Not just tired, but a good-tired.
I'm so glad to be sitting here, with Max.


He's the jelly on my biscuit, the gravy on my mashed potatoes, the marshmallow on my snowball.

Speaking of marshmallows...I've been on a "sweet fast" for almost a month. I'd pretty much kill to have a brownie right now. With walnuts. Oh my.
  
After the Experience Conference, coming home and unpacking, cooking for choir lunch and then going through the Sunday schedule:

Up at the crack of dawn
Head for church at 7:30 AM
Lead rehearsal
Teach my Life Group
Morning Worship
Choir Luncheon
Choir Rehearsal



Rehearsal was over at 3:00 and I stayed at the church all day today and worked until about 6:30 PM, by myself.

It had to be done.

I have some more to do tonight before sleep comes again.

I'm headed to California this Thursday, so I needed to get a jump on things or the week was going to get away from me without everything getting done.

It still feels kinda surreal that I'm going to California. 

I always come home with knowledge from the Experience Conference but this time I came home different in other ways. Still processing, but something new is happening in my heart and life. Something good. Something besides writing, and California.

Heart things.




Speaking of writing, I'm still working on the Celebration Church Christmas play/musical. I can't wait to finish it. We've been working on it since July.  The choir sounds amazing. Now if I could just finish the script. I had a majority of it done and then felt led to tweak in another direction. I'm an incessant tweaker. I probably drive certain (magazine/journal) editors crazy by sending them fourth, fifth and sixth "final drafts" of things. I'm sure, and then...not so much. Always making changes.

I'd rather do that than get complacent.

It was a great week this past week, and I can't wait to see what's going to unfold this week.

Prayers appreciated.

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

Excellent teaching on Criticism

My friend Pastor Leanne posted this today on her Myspace blog and I thought it was excellent and so timely. It's a blog post from Pastor Perry Noble , about criticism. I think it's perfect for the pastors at Relevant Church right now, as well as any other person going through this. I would like to note that when he says, "when God begins to move" it wouldn't necessarily just pertain to your church but to your life, your family, your marriage, anything that concerns you. I have found that the greater God does things in my life and the more He blessed me the more I should expect it. This teaching is good, so good I was almost wavin' a hanky in my office. Okay, here we go... You Will Be Criticized When God Begins To Move–Expect It And Get Over It. (Pastor Perry Noble at http://www.perrynoble.com/ ) I've never met a devil worshiper–to my knowledge that is. When I first became a Christian I was convinced that I needed to do all that I could to be ready to c
