winter blues

Wednesday, January 18, 2012

Fact: I hate winter weather. It makes me lazy, cold, and sick.
No really. Right now I'm in sweatpants on my bed, under a blanket, and going on day 6 of being sick.
Point proven.

For some reason my immune system crashes during these cold months. I've had a stomach bug and a head cold all within the last 6 days. This head cold is trying to hang in there, but I can't get rid of it.

Most internet sites say the best way to boost your immune system is to eat well, exercise, or get enough rest. I do all 3 so there's gotta be something else out there to help fight off common colds.

I need some kind of remedy because there's a lot more winter left here in Nashville. I miss my home sweet Florida on these cold dreary days! 

How do you beat the winter blues and stay well? 

Do Something Now

It's that time of year again. Resolution time. What's yours? Me, well I'm not gonna try and pick one to stick to this year. It always flops anyway. I can bet a lot of you out there are making vows to eat healthier, exercise more, and maybe even lose weight. That, I can relate to. If you know me well, then you know I am all for healthy eating. In fact, I'm pretty passionate about it. One day I'll blog all about it. For now, I encourage you all to take care of your body and live a healthier lifestyle! Yay for healthy eating in 2012!

On a very different note, Mitch and I have returned from a fantastic, inspiring week at Passion2012. I couldn't leave this post without mentioning it…the world needs to know. We(45,000 of us) raised over $3million to help end slavery (sex trafficking, forced labor). How great is our God! To clue you in on the details- there are more than 27 million slaves today. That's more than any other in history. I was unaware…and I think the majority of Americans are too.
 I have been inspired to raise awareness, to take action. I eagerly want to spread the word. So rather than me telling you how awesome the music was or how cool Hillsong's graphics were, or how much I love listening to Louie Giglio preach, I want to to tell you that there are 27 million people out there who are trapped in a vicious cycle with no hope. Real, breathing people. Depressing right? Yes, but we can do something about it! How? Follow the link below, give and tell others.

"Is this not the kind of fasting I have chosen:
to loose the chains of injustice and untie the chords
of the yoke, to set the oppressed free and break every yoke
Is it not to share your food with the hungry and to provide the poor
wanderer with shelter- when you see the naked, to clothe them,
and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood?
Then your light will break forth like the dawn, and your
healing will quickly appear, then your righteousness will
go before you, and the glory of the Lord will be your rear guard."
-Isaiah 58:6-8 (read whole chapter!)

It's 2012! Happy New Year to you all. We celebrated the New Year in the very crowded Downtown Pensacola for the Pelican drop. 
It'll be hard to beat 2011, but I know the Lord has an amazing journey ahead for us in 2012. 

Tomorrow we head to the Passion Conference. I've been looking forward to this since I bought my ticket last January! We're gonna pack out the Georgia Dome and lift high the name of Jesus! 


Have a blessed New Year, loves.
