DREAMING OF A “RIGHT” CHRISTMAS

MGO (May God offer) insight/understanding for “OVERSIGHTS”.  WHAT???  Now, “THAT”… DOESN’T EVEN MAKE SENSE… or does it???  Offering insight for… over or “out”…sights???  Come along, folks… it is time for ANOTHER TRIP… TO “JILL’S WORLD”!!!  READY???  HERE WE GO…

MGO, now “I” sat in church with my family and listened to the “message” delivered on Sat., 11/29/14 by Pastor Walter West.  “I”, however, DID NOT FULLY “GET IT” that night as my mind was…???…???…???… “CRAZY” BUSY thinking about picking out the PERFECT Christmas tree at Lightsey’s  AFTER church… a family tradition.

Oh, the memories… We can ALL laugh and remember them fondly…  “CRAZY” mommy, anxious, angry (due to the anxiety), and a “NERVOUS NINNY”… as referred to by MANY who knew me over the years.  HA!!!  College classmates used to tell me to: “Take a chill-pill, Jill-bill”… back in my 20’s!!!  Sorry, I got distracted… back to… “THE MEMORIES”…

Danielle and Chase would ALWAYS be so EXCITED running through all the isles of trees to pick from.  Daddy???  “He” was ALWAYS excited too.  Mommy???  “I”  was ALWAYS a nervous, anxious, angry… wreck!!!  The BEST times were ALWAYS at night.  Dark outside.  AND… “CHILLY” (for FL)… anything below 60 degrees.  Oh, how I wish I could have traveled a bit more quickly along My Spiritual Life Journey to REALLY enjoy those days, back then, as the person I am TODAY.  Hhhmmm… I do realize, however:  GOD IS GOOD… ALL THE TIME!!!  ALL THE TIME… GOD IS GOOD!!!

So, my mind was a bit distracted during the church service.  Now, I think I thought that I “GOT IT” (the message) during church, however it took me a few days to realize that I hadn’t REALLY chewed on it enough to REALLY “GET IT” the way it  would, LATER, strike me right upside my head.  Yep, Pastor Walter recently sent a few posts out over FaceBook… somewhere… out there… and “IT” (the message) suddenly became so, So, SO important that I feel “urged” to write a post about “IT”… for you all to “CHEW ON” and “GET IT” too!!!

The message at ABC delivered by Pastor Walter West this past weekend, Nov. 29-30, 2014 was keeping “A Right Focus” while “Dreaming Of A Right Christmas”.  MGO, folks.  DOUBLE MGO, MGO…  

— I won’t focus on my complications.     Matthew 1:18

— I won’t focus on my computations.     Matthew 1:19

— I won’t focus on my contemplations.     Matthew 1;20

— I will focus on the Lord’s inclination.     Matthew 1:21, 2 Peter 3:9

— I will focus on the Lord’s instruction.     Matthew 1:24

Thank-you, Pastor Walter.  I, too, am “Dreaming Of A Right Christmas”.  “Tis the season, folks…  “And may all your Christmases be RIGHT,” as well.

ALL GLORY BE TO GOD!!!  AMEN.
