Father, “YOU” give me “CHILLS”

No kidding, folks.  “IT”… IS AMAZING!!!  Each time my thoughts are drawn closer, Closer, and CLOSER to God… “I” get these “CHILLS,” predominantly down the back of both arms, the triceps.  I mainly notice “THIS” sensation in my RIGHT, partially paralyzed, arm.  “THIS”… IS AMAZING GRACE, folks.  THANK YOU, JESUS.

No kidding, folks.  I have been “feeling” something… “things”… “tingles”… “goosebumps”… “CHILLS”… in my bad arm FOR AWHILE NOW!!!  I have blogged about “THESE” recurring phenomena in an earlier post… SOMEWHERE… BACK THERE… in previous months.

These “PHENOMENA,” folks… are simply ANOTHER part of “THIS THING” I call my “JOURNEY” through “LIFE,” A.K.A.:  “MY JOURNEY OF FAITH”.  Now referred to as my “SPIRITUAL LIFE JOURNEY” by Search Engine Optimizers…???…???…??? (I think)    😉

It is now 8:45 am on Sunday, 10/12/14.  I plan on attending our local “GREEK FESTIVAL” here in St. Augustine down at the Events Field.  Yep, I will be… “MINGLING,” yet again, and sharing this message of “Motivational Team Building” at numberoneteam.net.  I LOVE how that sounds… “I”… am a “MINGLER”!!!  😉

P.H.P, folks.  People Helping People.

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

ALL GLORY BE TO GOD!!!  AMEN.

REASONING WITH UNREASONABLE PEOPLE

I, simply, CANNOT make “THIS” stuff up, folks!!!  “THIS”… is  REAL “LIFE” in “JILL’S WORLD”!!!  Are you ready for ANOTHER trip???  I invite you to come along, folks… “WE’RE  GOIN’  IN”!!!

WHAT???  “Reasoning With Unreasonable People”???!!!???!!!???!!!  An “approved” continuing education course???  Hhhmmm…  “THIS” was DEFINITELY… a course for ME(JILL #1) to attend!!!  Oh, Where-oh-where… do I begin???

Course Instructor:  Joseph W. Shannon, Ph.D./Psychologist.  WOW!!!  “THIS” man, folks???  WAS AMAZING!!!  DOUBLE WOW, WOW!!!  His course was so, So, SO entertaining, yet informative.  “I”… was on the edge of my seat… the entire lecture!!!

I arrived a bit early to get a “GOOD” seat… RIGHT UP FRONT… FIRST ROW of TABLES!!!  I had hoped to arrive FIRST, however, a few folks were already seated when I arrived!  AND… WOULDN’T YOU KNOW IT… “SOMEBODY ELSE”… was sitting where “I” would have liked to sit!!!  :/  SOooooo… what did “I” do???  “I” sat RIGHT beside “HIM”… in the 2nd seat in the first row of tables to the right side of the room!!!  There were ONLY a hand-full of folks in the entire room at this point.  100+ empty seats in that huge room!!!  AND… “I”… had to sit RIGHT next to a gentleman sitting where I would have liked to sit!!!  Oh yeah… AWKWARD!!!  WHAT, ON EARTH, WAS I THINKING???  HA!!!  It appeared that… I HAD NOT BEEN THINKING… AT ALL!!!  DOUBLE HA, HA!!!  :/

WHOOSH… MY HEAD BEGAN TO SWIM!!!  A mild case of anxiety… BEFORE THE CLASS EVEN STARTED!!!  A quick prayer calmed my nerves… IMMEDIATELY!!!  Thank you, Jesus!!!

We covered ALOT of material during lecture.  I, thoroughly, enjoyed this Continuing Ed. Seminar.  I must admit that I escaped to “Jill’s World,” momentarily, to entertain the idea of my speaking to a large group of people such as this in association with numberoneteam.net.

I did “MINGLE,” folks and got to met some marvelous individuals.  Not everyone in attendance received a business card, but I guess-timate that I met and hand-delivered 90-100 cards that day to very receptive individuals.  WHAT AN AMAZING DAY SPENT WITH AN AMAZING PRESENTER AND AMAZING ATTENDEES AT AN AMAZING COURSE:  “REASONING WITH UNREASONABLE PEOPLE:  Focus on Disorders of Emotional Regulation”.  Thank you so much, Joseph W. Shannon, Ph.D/Psychologist for an AMAZING presentation!!!

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

ALL GLORY BE TO GOD!!!  AMEN.

 

 

F…”ALLEN” FAMILIES…

FALLEN FAMILIES NEED GRACE ———- Genesis 1-4

WOW, folks!!!  “THIS”… was tonight’s message at church.  And “IT”… hit me RIGHT UP-SIDE MY HEAD!!!  OUCH!!!

“I,” of course, picked out our last name from that first word:  F… “ALLEN”.  And I leaned over to whisper that awareness to Chris… IMMEDIATELY (RIGHT during service)!!!  F… “ALLEN” FAMILIES.  Pppsssttt…(F)… “ALLEN” FAMILIES——– NEED GRACE!!!  AMEN.  Chris did chuckle… the first time I whispered it to him!!!  “HE”… had had enough by the 3rd or 4th whisper!  🙁

Yep, folks… Dr. Walter West was speaking DIRECTLY… TO ME… AGAIN!!!  He even acknowledged, at some point, how many of us there had been hurt tremendously by family members… “those people who were supposed to love you”.  THOSE PEOPLE… you were supposed to “TRUST”.  Re-visiting old wounds AGAIN.  “FORGIVENESS,” however, IS… setting me FREE.  AMEN.

Now, in moving forward with my current family (Chris, Danielle, and Chase), tonight’s message resonated… LOUDLY!!!  The main points were as follows:

— “Search for the image of God in my family.  It’s there.”  Genesis 1:26-27

–“Speak blessing and victory into my family.”  Genesis 1:28

–“Honor and hold fast to my family bonds, even as they change.”  Genesis 2:24-25

–“Leave room for redemption and forgiveness.”  Genesis 3:15-17

–“Bring *HOPE into my family by accepting the Grace of God!!!”  Romans 5:12-17

AMAZING message delivered at church tonight!!!  AMAZING GRACE!!!  ALL families have their… “STUFF,” folks.  A.K.A:  Their “PLATES”… of “STUFF”.  SOME are… how do you say it… “heaping”???  Others are… LESS… “heaping”.  EVERY FAMILY, however, HAS IT’S PLATE OF STUFF!!!  We are ALL imperfect people.  Making mistakes EVERY single day.  Seeking to give the BEST of ourselves while simply seeking to survive… “LIFE”.  Pretty DEEP, huh?  POWERFUL STUFF!

Oh, yeah… and you are simply NOT gonna believe “THIS” little tid-bit of “F.Y.I.” news, either!!!  READY???  Well, there was a new singer in tonight’s band.  “NEW” to me, that is.  “SHE”… was AMAZING!!!  I slipped off my heels to go up on stage AFTER the service to meet AND compliment “HER,” and to give her a numberoneteam.net business card.  GUESS WHAT???  “I”… told her that “MY” name is “JILL”.  Are you guessing???  Yep… “HER” name is ALSO… “JILL”!!!  SHUT-UP!!!  I am NOT kidding, folks.  “JILL”… met “JILL” tonight at church!!!  Oh, and did I mention: “JILL”… is AMAZING!!!  😉

Give the BEST of yourself for “JUST” today… “EVERY” day!!!

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

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

ALL GLORY BE TO GOD!!!  AMEN.
