HELPING…

feels good.  “GIVING”…feels good.  “SHARING”…feels good.  Especially when that HELPING, GIVING or SHARING is done “FREELY”.  Most people like to help, give or share…to causes that are close to their hearts.

EVERYBODY…has a plate of “STUFF,” folks.  People understand hardships they have faced themselves.  PEOPLE…CARE MORE…WHEN THEY UNDERSTAND.  And people like to HELP, GIVE or SHARE their wealth in areas that have meaning to them.  I apologize, but what may be important to YOU…may NOT be important to ME.  And vice-versa.  AND THAT’S OKAY, folks.

WE ARE WHO WE ARE BASED ON WHERE WE’VE BEEN…AND HOW WE’VE RESPONDED TO SITUATIONS WHILE SIMPLY SEEKING TO SURVIVE “LIFE”.  Our struggles in life are unique, but may bear similarities to those of others.  “Birds of a feather flock together!!!”  BAM!!!  We are drawn to the familiar…or that which we understand…BECAUSE WE “GET-IT”!!!  “IT”…MAKES SENSE.

God intended “LIFE” to be this way.  We ALL struggle.  We are drawn to “HELP” others who face our similar struggles.  “THIS” is automatic.  “THIS”…is who we are.  “HELPING”…is our nature…“IF”…you are a God-worshiping individual.  GOD IS GOOD…ALL THE TIME!!!  ALL THE TIME…GOD IS GOOD!!!

God…is our ruler…NOT man.  God rules individuals…individually.  Perfectly.  If they so choose to abide by His specific rules for their individual lives.  WE ARE ALL DIFFERENT…based on the specific hardships/struggles we’ve faced.  Examine your life story, let God into your heart, soul and mind(if He’s not already there) and then let Him guide you to your life’s purpose.  IT’S THAT EASY, folks.

Now, mind you…“EASY” does NOT necessarily mean “QUICK”.  God knocked on my door for many years.  I did not, however, let  Him FULLY “IN” my LIFE until the age of 42-43.  “LIFE IS A JOURNEY,” folks.  Can you identify where you are at along YOURS?  THINK ABOUT IT. ( a tribute to my late brother, Bob.  May you  R.I.P.)

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

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

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

ALL GLORY BE TO GOD!!!  AMEN.

 

 

 

SURVIVING OBAMA

OUCH!!!  Well…it’s TRUE, folks!!!  I can see “light” at the end of this
dark tunnel called the Barrack Obama Presidency.  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!

FEAR AND UNCERTAINTY…

TODAY IS DIFFICULT…for “ME,” folks.  Note to self:  “Self…KEEP THE FAITH”!!!  According to Matthew 17:20, faith as small as a mustard seed can make things happen.  Hhhmmm…a mustard seed is TEENY-TINY, right???  RIGHT!!!

LETTING THEM GO…

TO LET THEM GROW!!!  OUCH!!!

numberoneteam has become another family…to “ME”.   The “.net” site came first, in August of 2013.  The “.org” site is…???…???…??? FINALLY “getting started”…AFTER months in the making!!!  Have I mentioned that… I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT I’M DOING???!!!???!!!???!!!  Computers DO NOT like “ME”.  Not to worry, folks.  I… DO NOT like them, EITHER!!!  We tolerate each other…just enough to get by!!!

So, I just learned that I need to loosen my grip on my “babies” (.net and .org) in order to allow their growth to occur.  Hhhmmm…GO FIGURE!!!  I “KNEW” this…regarding my babies…as in my “CHILDREN”!!!  I did NOT, however, realize that I also need to let go of my website “babies” to allow THEIR growth, as well!!!  BAM, folks!!!  DOUBLE BAM, BAM!!!  My eyes have been opened!!!  AND NOW I SEE”!!!  Halleluiah!!!  Amen!!!

I am STILL learning, folks!!!  (Pppsssttt…have I mentioned that I’m “50”???  Yep, I SURE have…back there in a previous post or two…or 3…perhaps 4…SOMEWHERE… back there…)   😉  I am living.  And STILL learning.  EVERY SINGLE DAY!!!

UGH!!!  Growing pains are sure “DIFFICULT”!!!  BUT… “these” kind feel Soooooo GOOD when you understand the source of that ache enough to promote continued growth.

“LEARNING”…TO LET THEM GO!!!  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  IN ORDER TO LET THEM GROW!!!  DOUBLE WOO-WHOOOOOO, WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!

My head hurts, folks!!!  TIME FOR BED!!!

“Uniting” is the PERFECT word choice to describe the purpose of numberoneteam.net, a motivational team building site.  I LOVE AMERICA.  GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!  UNITED WE STAND…DIVIDED WE FALL!!!  MAY GOD BLESS THE WHOLE-WIDE WORLD!!!

KEEP YOUR COMPLAINTS TO YOURSELF!!!

Hey “YOU,” it’s “ME”… AGAIN!!!  Have I mentioned that I do NOT tolerate complainers very well???  Why “YES,”… I think I HAVE mentioned that a few times throughout this blog!!!

BREAKING NEWS, folks:  WE ALL HAVE PROBLEMS!!!  Thank goodness we don’t ALL sit around complaining about them!!!  I have enough “STUFF” of my own to deal with.  Your “stuff” + my “stuff” = TOO MUCH “STUFF”!!!

Not making enough money???  GET ANOTHER JOB!!!  Spend less money.  SACRIFICE!!!  BUT DON’T COMPLAIN!!!  WE ARE ALL STRUGGLING… to make ends meet these days.

THE SHIP IS SINKING, AMERICA!!!  AND WE ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER!!! 

Uh-oh…I just realized that “THIS” message is as much to myself as anyone.  Heavenly Father, please increase my tolerance of others’ chosen methods to “HELP” them survive these “DIFFICULT” times.  Please “HELP” me to support them(complainers) as needed…EVEN if it means listening to them complain!!!

Oh bother, and my complaining about complainers…makes “me” one of “them,” right???  A COMPLAINER!!!  Aaahhhhhh!!!  :/

CHOOSING…

–GOOD vs. BAD

–RIGHT vs. WRONG

–POSITIVE vs. NEGATIVE

–GODLY vs. SATANIC

Everything we do in “LIFE” is the result of choices we make.  “WHY” do we do what we do???  “WHY” are choices made???  WE ARE WHO WE ARE FOR A REASON.  EVERYTHING MAKES SENSE.  All the puzzle pieces of your “LIFE” fit together…PERFECTLY!!!  Please…STOP any negative patterns of destruction being subconsciously utilized to SURVIVE…”LIFE”. 

BAD + BAD = MORE BAD.

Using  negative situations to “HELP” others will turn those situations into positives.  WE ALL HAVE A STORY.  WHAT’S YOURS???  And please use your story as a reason to “HELP”.  NOT as an excuse to HURT anyone.

And “YES”… “THIS” applies to ALL OF US.  To EVERY body…EVERY where.  In EVERY single situation…EVERY single time.  ALL THE TIME.

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

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

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

ALL GLORY BE TO GOD!!!  AMEN.
