“SUNNY!!!”

“OCEAN WALK” subdivision…LEE DRIVE

ST. AUGUSTINE BEACH, FL

 

MISSING!!!  8 week old white lab puppy.  Presumed to have escaped from our neighbor’s, fenced-in, back yard.  Boy, did this neighborhood come to life… IMMEDIATELY!!!  PUPPY ALERT!!!  MISSING PUPPY ALERT!!!

WOW!!!  Neighbors EVERYWHERE… searching for Sunny.  All over the neighborhood.  Wooded areas.  Along Pope Rd.  Along Mickler Rd.  In back yards.  Under porches.  In the small creek by Pope Road that runs down along Mickler Rd.  In garages.  People walking.  People riding bikes.  People driving cars.  A police officer even stopped to “investigate” this “organized” search occurring along Pope Rd. right in front of Ocean Walk subdivision!!!  ALL OF US…LOOKING FOR…”SUNNY”!!!  An 8 week old white lab puppy!!!

And the “clincher”???  Our, beloved neighbors, right next door, were simply “puppy-sitting” for ONE day!!!  That’s right!!!  “PUPPY-SITTING”… FOR ONE DAY!!!  😉

AND…ANOTHER “CLINCHER”?  My guys had just returned home from their Boyscout camping weekend, 11-ish am.  They were unloading the van, I was cutting up a pomegranate when notified about this missing puppy.  Folks from ALL over our neighborhood sprang into action… IMMEDIATLEY!!!  ARE you with me?

OKAY…I ADMIT IT!!!  I can be a little…well, maybe a little…”lazy” on mornings when I have nowhere to be or nothing to do…outside of my house!  :/  YOU ARE “WITH” ME NOW, right?  HERE WE GO…

NEIGHBORS IN NEED OF…”HELP”!!!  Yep, I sprang into action, folks…wearing “night” clothes-only.  No make-up.  Un-combed hair.  Morning breath…with un-brushed teeth!!!  Sound familiar???  I am not kidding, folks!!!  I COULD NOT MAKE THIS STUFF UP!!!  I, at least, “thought” enough to slip into my thongs/sandals!!!

Yep, there is a GREAT ending to this story…on about the 5th “search” behind their couch, Sheila found this puppy lying in front of a hole in this couch!!!  Yep…Sunny had found that “hole” and decided to head inside that couch for a NAP!!!  Sheila had looked back there numerous times… NOTHING THERE!!!   Until Sunny woke from her nap and… THERE SHE WAS!!!

Sheila snatched Sunny up and brought her outside to “CALL-OFF” the neighborhood “SEARCH”!!! PEOPLE WERE CELEBRATING…EVERYWHERE!!!  As Sunny yawned, numerous times in Sheila’s arms, unaware of the TOTAL HYSTERIA as neighbors banned together to “FIND” a “LOST” white lab puppy…who had simply been napping!!!

What a GREAT neighborhood.  GREAT neighbors.  GREAT PEOPLE!!!  WE ARE TRULY BLESSED!!!

Ocean Walk subdivision banned together TODAY… and formed our very own…”Number One Team”!!!

GO TEAM!!!  WE’RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER!!!

 

 

FORGIVENESS…

WOW.  THIS IS BIG!!!  “FORGIVENESS…”

I am asking EVERYONE to take a look inside themselves.  This post is dedicated to those individuals who seem easily angered by…”ridiculous” things.  Petty things.   Peel back those layers of your protective coats… and examine what it is, EXACTLY, that you are fearful of.

ANGER… is… SATAN, himself… working within you.  Let go of all those negative emotions.  Give them unto The Lord.  DO NOT BE AFRAID.  There is great need to examine “YOUR ISSUES” so that you may find PEACE… through Forgiveness. 

GOD…IS AMAZING!!!  HE…KNOWS YOUR BATTLES.  HE KNOWS YOUR SUFFERING.  HE IS WAITING TO HEAR FROM YOU.  HE…WANTS TO BE YOUR HERO.  SEEK HIS GUIDANCE TODAY.  TOMORROW ISN’T PROMISED…

GO TEAM!!!  WE’RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER!!!

ALL GLORY BE TO GOD!!!  AMEN!!!

ACCEPTING HIS…”GIFT”…

GOD’S GIFT =  ETERNAL LIFE, HEAVEN.

AND…IT’S FREE!!!  WILL YOU ACCEPT THIS “FREE” GIFT???

“…the GIFT of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 6:23)

–No man can earn his way into heaven.

–Man is a sinner.

–Man cannot save himself.

FAITH is the key that opens the door to Heaven.

BELIEF… that LORD JESUS CHRIST… is your SAVIOR.  HE… shed his blood for you.  HE… died on the cross.  A horrible death .  And then He rose again, to purchase you a place in heaven.

ETERNAL LIFE = A FREE GIFT FROM GOD.  THE QUESTION…???  WILL YOU “ACCEPT” IT???

GO TEAM!!!  WE’RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER!!!

ALL GLORY BE TO GOD!!!  AMEN!!!

 

 

 

“HELPING”…THE UNDERDOG!!!

“Underdog is here…Un, Un…derdog is here!!!”

Forgive me, folks.  I remember that above “line” from a children’s movie we took both kids to see awhile ago…AND… I JUST COULDN’T STOP MYSELF!!! 

Okay, HERE WE GO…AGAIN!!!  I have been getting very close with a couple co-workers lately.  VERY…CLOSE!!!  Another “incident” occurred at the end of the day, Friday, 2/14.  VALENTINE’S DAY, 2014!!!  I have discussed this with my husband before, and I also just spoke of this with my co-worker on Friday…regarding my tendency to…join “arms” with the “weak”.

And…IF you will refer to previous posts…I ALSO mention a deep desire for me to “fight” other people’s battles.  Specifically, those people who I feel are, somehow, weakened, or are… “THE UNDERDOG”!!!  WOW!!!  This has been so, so true of me… ALL OF MY LIFE!!!  I can even remember “specifics”… from back in elementary school.  I believe that I have mentioned “taking down the bully” in a previous post.  I, ALSO, remember, ANOTHER specific occasion in elementary school.  Perhaps I will discuss that particular memory…IN A LATER POST…

WOW!!!  The pieces of my life’s puzzle are fitting together… FINALLY!!!  PERFECTLY!!!

GO TEAM!!!  WE’RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER!!!

ALL GLORY BE TO GOD!!!  AMEN!!!

 

 

ABC sermon, SAT. 2/15/14

OMG!!!  DOUBLE OMG!!!  OMG!!!

Okay, another “sign”?  Is this just a “coincidence”?  Or could it be “something else”?  You will NOT believe this, folks…(or…maybe you will…???)  HERE WE GO…

Both of my guys are away…again…this weekend.  Yep, ANOTHER camping trip with Boyscouts.  Chase is currently a Life Scout.  Next step?  EAGLE SCOUT!!!  EAGLE… is the GRAND PRIZE!!!  Yep, I am so, so proud of my two guys!!!  So, Chris and Chase are out of town.  Danielle is… not feeling the best.  “I”…end up going to church by myself… AGAIN!!! You with me?  Okay…

To begin the evening, one of the pastors that I view as “LEAD” musician of our church “band,” makes a comment about… “MIRACLES”.  A recent post added to the blog of:  numberoneteam.net , 2/13/14, is regarding a current “MIRACLE,” happening in my life… RIGHT NOW!!!  ALL GLORY BE TO GOD!!! 

I am sitting in church…by myself.  I could barely stay focused on what Pastor West was preaching tonight.  I was, completely… COMPLETELY… in my own world.  Yep, that place called “Jill’s world”!!!  I scribbled “thoughts” ALL OVER MY bulletin.  I COULD NOT STOP!!!  UNTIL… BELIEVE IT OR NOT… Pastor Walter West starts talking about asking… “SIRI” (the voice on I-phone) questions!!!  WHAT???  ARE YOU SERIOUS??? 

I JUST… spoke about “SIRI” in that same post about… MIRACLES 2/13/14!!!  Okay, I am a bit “confused” about things…I think I “thought”… the name was “SIMON,” NOT “SIRI”!!!  BUT… SIRI… is that voice on the I-phone that I was talking about!!!  OMG!!!  IS THIS A COINCIDENCE?  OR COULD IT BE SOMETHING ELSE??

DOUBLE OMG!!!  OMG!!!  MIRACLES…???  SIRI…???

AGAIN… I sit here feeling “STUNNED” and “AMAZED”!!!  ALL GLORY BE TO GOD!!!  AMEN!!!

GO TEAM!!!  WE’RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER!!!
