Revelation

31 03 2008

One of the things that Dr. Myles Munroe said is, “Never confuse information with revelation. Never confuse knowledge with truth.” Okay, that is really two things.

As I am going over my notes today, I am keeping that in mind. I believe that God will use knowledge and information to give me revelation. Today, I want revelation.

Deep thoughts. My brain hurts.





My world has been rocked

Have you ever seen a cuter Mother to be? This is our Creative Arts Pastor. Her blog is in my blogroll under Abs of steel. I happened to be at just the right angle to see this unborn baby almost reaching out to play the keyboard herself. I snatched my little Samsung phone out of my pocket and snapped this pic then sent it to myself in an email. Thanks for the help Johnny Fuller. Yeah, that’s right, I just made you an accessory to the fact. ūüėČ I love this worship team!

This was taken at our Sunday evening sound check before Dr. Myles Munroe spoke at the Rock. He is imparting some crazy stuff to us. I can’t even begin to put words to what I got out of tonight. It really is a whole new concept for me and I have to chew on this for a while. He turned my thinking upside down.

I have asked God to let me hear His heart for me through this man of God. I do not want to miss what my Lord has for me. Jesus is the most important person in my life. Above anything else, I want to accomplish what He has designed me for. I want to know, once and for all, that I am walking in my Divine purpose.

Shake me up Lord. If it will get me where You want me, go ahead and rock my world.





Dinero or Cherokees or…?

27 03 2008

It has been an interesting week. The saga of the Colonoscopy yesterday has reached its end. (get it?) sorry, sometimes i can’t resist going for the goofy joke.

The nurse told me she was giving me a seditive. She said it was a fast acting one and then she put it in my IV. I felt a warmth move over my chest and said, “Oooh, I feel that in my… sigh”. That was all she wrote until they were wheeling me out to the car in a wheel chair. I don’t have any idea how I got into said wheel chair and I really didn’t care. Ed tells me that I slept all the way home and when I got into the house, I told him I was going to wander into the back bedroom. He came and found me curled up on the bed. That is where I stayed until about 4PM. When I stumbled into the kitchen there was a paper with pictures on the table. Not pretty pictures. One pic was my colon and the other was a polyp on my colon. The doc removed that and sent it off for tests. So the drama is not really over just yet. I am a bit uncomfortable today and I can’t lift anything over 25 lbs for the next 2 weeks.

Ed told me the doctor showed me these pics but I don’t remember seeing the doc or those pics. Ed said I just sat in the bed grinning and nodding my head. I’m sure I was.

Earlier this week, I got a call from a friend and co-worker who wanted to know if I was available to come to Connecticut to work on a movie with her. Robert Dinero and Drew Barrymore are the two actors she mentioned. “Heck Yeah!” Well, the production would have to spend more money to have me there then they would to hire someone from NY so guess what happened. Oh well.

I got another offer to do the next part of the PBS Indian series I just did in Boston. They loved the work we did on the first series and want us to do the rest. This one is about the Cherokee Indians and would film in Georgia on the last 2 weeks of May. I called them back and told them I would be available to do that job.

Today, I got a call from a hairstylist in LA to see if I am avaiable to work on a BIG feature film in SC. (Thank God the writers strike is over. Plenty of work out there right now) She told me there are lots of BIG actors in this one. I was not too impressive on the phone interview and I am kicking myself right now. Ed had a come to Jesus meeting with me and told me to stop selling myself short. I emailed her my resume and am waiting to hear back. I would take this job over the PBS because it runs longer, pays more and would give me some real good experience with lace wigs.

No matter what happens with this one, I will work and that is the good news.





Brain dump

25 03 2008

I am supposed to be putting tax stuff together but ADD is screaming at me.

LET’S DO OTHER STUFF. LOTS OF OTHER STUFF.

shut up brain

THINK ABOUT THIS. WHAT ARE YA GONNA COOK FOR SUPPER? MAKE JELLO. CHECK THE MAIL. CALL SALLY. WALK THE DOGS. THINK ABOUT ATLANTA.

atlanta?! alright, now you’ve done it. you are asking for a brain dump young lady!

  • tomorrow I go for my first colonoscopy.
  • what does one wear to the appointment?
  • today I am staying close to home.
  • visions of horror dancing in my head.
  • liquid diets are extra hard when you have been on a detox diet for 10 days.
  • too much health stuff going on in my life right now. I don’t like it.
  • I am excited to see what my church looks like at the end of this week.
  • Easter service made me want to be better at loving people.
  • being self centered¬† = boring.
  • wounded people wound people.
  • life is short.
  • wish I were more clever.

Gotta go get my tax information together now.





HAPPY BIRTHDAY MY LOVE

24 03 2008

spring-003.jpgToday was a special day in the life of my special man.

Ed turned 65 today. Officially old enough to retire which he has officially done, by the way.

We started our day today with coffee and breakfast at home. I took Ed to Olive Garden forspring-004.jpg

lunch and our lovely waitress, Kate, took good care of us. Even though it was quite busy and there were a lot of children in the restaraunt (no school today) she remained pleasant and had a laugh with us. Then came the part of the meal that every birthday celabratee dies of embarassment from. That’s right, the happy birthday song sung by the¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† spring-003.jpg

Olive Garden Ensemble.

Then, off to Sambuca downtown for a one hour massage. Help for that wounded body. Can you see how well the injury to his head has cleared up? It is barely visible except for the black dot in the middle of his forehead. Which reminds me of  a story about a man who was married to a woman that suffered from tremendous mood swings. In an effort to tell what her mood was each day, he bought her a mood ring. This worked very well for the husband. When she was happy the ring had a blue color to the stone. When she was grumpy it turned red and when she was in a real bad mood, it left a black mark right in the middle of his forehead.

Live, love and don’t forget to laugh today.





It’s all about me

20 03 2008

Organizing anything with ADD is not for sissies. I have been trying to put all my equipment away and organize it so when I go on the next job, it will be easier to pack. I need to take a little break though, so I came in the office to write.

I have been debating if I should share my latest health drama. I¬†think you all can¬†handle it¬†so… here goes.

I have been diagnosed with Pulmonary Fibrosis. I wonder why I have to capitalize that, like it is deserving of some kind of honor. It really isn’t. Kind of a crappy diagnosis if you ask me. There is no cure for it, no treatment for it and the stuff they say online is not very encouraging. My Pulmonary Specialist says I shouldn’t look online but it was too late. Already did that. His idea is to let it run its course for the next six months since there is nothing he can do for me. Then we will do another Cat scan to see how it is progressing. I guess that is as good a plan as any from a doctors perspective.

In the meantime, I have decided to try something. I am doing a cleansing detox diet. It is a 21 day plan and I am on day 7 of it today. It can’t hurt to try to rid myself of toxins that are clogging up the organs and it makes me feel like I am doing something against it. However, I would love to invite myself to Abbye and Don’s tonight for some chocolate cake. ūüėČ

This is the biggest thing I am doing though. I am praying for a miracle healing. Doctors cannot do anything but Jesus can. I would be honored if you would like to join me in this request. I have NO doubt that Jesus heals. I have experienced miracle healings before and I don’t think there is any limit on how many I may receive.

I do not feel ill at all. I have a dry cough and can feel a little sensation in my lungs but it is not too bothersome. I am still singing, working, walking the dogs and jumping around the sanctuary at Wednesday night praise group.

One of the reasons for possibly not wanting to share this is that I do not want people to get all morbid on me. I also don’t want the people I work with to count me out of being able to do the job. I am at the top of my game right now and I plan to keep walking in the blessings.

I am looking forward to celebrating Easter this Sunday at the Rock. The songs we are singing are so good. Pastor B. has put himself on the line by saying it is going to be life changing. I am counting on it. If you don’t have a church to go to, join me at the Rock.

Ed’s birthday is Monday, March 24th. I have a big day planned for us.

By the way, it is true, what they say about asparagus makes your pee smell funny.

Man, do you see how many times I used the word I in this post??? I count 37!!! That’s all I have to say about that.
