TIMING…

IS EVERYTHING!!!

When to say something…matters.  When to do something…matters!  WOW!!!  Being at the right place at just the right time… MATTERS!!!  This is so true, isn’t it?  “TIMING IS EVERYTHING!!!”

We’ve ALL heard “THAT” before, haven’t we?  “WHEN” to say or do something is critical.  “Throwing”… your thoughts or opinions out there IMMEDIATELY; “WAITING”… for a better time or place to insert your “ideas” PATIENTLY; OR “KEEPING”… them to yourself, “PERIOD”!!!  The same is true for our actions.  “INTERVENING”…IMMEDIATELY; “WAITING”… TO TAKE ACTION; OR “REFRAINING”… from doing anything… PERIOD!!!    

“THIS”… is difficult, folks.  THINKING… before responding verbally or reacting physically… IS A MUST!!!  “I”… have gotten much better with this.  And I can, honestly, say that I like this “change” that is occurring within me.  I am much…”calmer” these days.  I do not “FLY”… off that handle anymore.  I may… “PITTER, PATTER, OR PUTTER… off, but I don’t  “FLY” off… ANYMORE!!!  😉

So, what explains this “change” in me?  The #1 reason?  All glory be to God, who has been seeking my attention for many, many years.  Oh yeah, and… “I HAVE DECIDED TO FOLLOW JESUS.  NO TURNING BACK, NO TURNING BACK!!!”  The #2 reason?  I am, FINALLY, dealing with MY “ISSUES”…A.K.A., MY “PLATE OF CRAP,” which is ALSO… “THANKS TO GOD”!!!  AMEN.

“THINK”…  BEFORE YOU “ACT,” FOLKS!!!

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

ALL GLORY BE TO GOD!!!  AMEN. 

 

 

 

SILENCE…

IS GOLDEN!!!

No thoughts or opinions needed!!!  Just…keep quiet.  God knows your thoughts… ALWAYS!!!  That’s enough, folks.  It is often better to keep your thoughts or opinions to yourself.  Especially if they are contrary to others’.  And ESPECIALLY… if your “contrary” thoughts or opinions have NOT been sought.

I am learning, folks… TO KEEP MY MOUTH SHUT!!!  Jill’s opinion ( that’s “ME”), doesn’t ALWAYS matter!!!  I tend to be opinionated, okay?  I admit it.  Everyone… EVERYONE… always knew how Jill (“me” again) felt about EVERYTHING ever discussed about ANYTHING!!!  Yep, I was one of “those” people.  “THOSE” people who are easy to dislike!!!  Even when simply seeking to… “HELP”.  F.Y.I.:  HELPING is often HURTFUL… and… UNNECESSARY – even if you’re “RIGHT”!!!  Interesting, huh?  “RIGHT” can often be “WRONG”!!!  

Everyone.  EVERYONE… adds their own little “spin” to EVERYTHING!!!  It AMAZES me how individuals can view the exact same thing… differently!!!  God intended us to be different.  He did not, however, intend for us to be evil.  “Think about it!” ( another tribute to my brother, Bob)

P.H.P., folks.  People Helping People.

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

GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!  AND MAY GOD BLESS THE WHOLE, WIDE WORLD!!!  AMEN.
