I SAID ANOTHER PRAYER…

FOR AMERICA TONIGHT!!!

I came across  a Facebook post regarding Miley Cyrus just a few minutes ago.  I clicked on the link and continued reading about how Miley, ALLEGEDLY, made some negative comments regarding biblical teachings AND today’s conservative viewpoints regarding gay marriage.   Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

Is the reported information even credible???  Did Miley Cyrus REALLY say those things???  OR NOT???  Well, “I”… am a born-again Christian, folks.  I REFUSE to allow myself to become angry or frustrated by this report.  Maybe she DID say those things.   Maybe she
DID NOT.  :/  I DON’T KNOW, BUT:  “IT IS…WHAT IT IS,” folks!!!  Your thoughts, my thoughts, his thoughts, or her thoughts ABOUT “IT” DO NOT  change the reality OF “IT”.  THINK ABOUT IT!!! (A tribute to my late brother, Bob)

Miley Cyrus played an important role in the development of my drive and determination to “STAY THE COURSE” with the blogging venture of this site, numberoneteam.net.  Her song, “The Climb,” brings tears to both eyes… EVERY time I hear it!!!  My FAITH remains STEADFAST, folks!!!  JESUS CHRIST IS MY LORD AND SAVIOR!!!  No matter what ANYBODY says.

My prayer is for America to stay strong.  SPIRITUALLY STRONG.  And to NOT put importance on what Hollywood Stars might say or think about ANYTHING.  There is no need to “HURT” Miley, financially, by not supporting her talent via record sales or concert ticket sales.  She IS talented.  There is ALSO no need to make negative comments about her.  Who are we to “JUDGE”???  She…is human, folks.  And we humans…ALL MAKE MISTAKES!!!  Isn’t it good to know that our God is forgiving???   B.T.W.( By The Way)…I said a prayer for Miley Cyrus tonight too!!!(Just in case the report held some truth to it!!!)  😉

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.

OOPSE…I DID IT AGAIN!!!

OUCH!!!  I allowed my hectic day + a teammate’s hectic day to collide, resulting in an unnecessary…???…???…??? “EXPLOSION” on “MY” part.  “Jill, Jill, Jill…”  🙁  Forgive me Heavenly Father, for I have sinned yet AGAIN!!!  Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

Come along, folks.  It’s time for another “TRIP”…

So, I was having a difficult conversation with teammate #1 and then turned MY frustration outward onto teammate #2…who simply made a legitimate “mistake” that added controversy to an already frustrating situation with teammate #1.  I WAS NOT EVEN UPSET WITH TEAMMATE #2…AT ALL!!!  I simply released my frustration with teammate #1 onto teammate #2!!!  DOUBLE OUCH, OUCH!!! 

I was aware of my inappropriate response…IMMEDIATELY, folks.  And I quickly apologized…APPROPRIATELY!!!  Hhhmmm…owning-up to your mistakes is so…???…???…??? “REFRESHING”(that’s the ONLY adjective I could come up with that might “fit” there!!!)  :/

So, what do I have to say “TODAY”???  “T.G.I.F.,” folks!!!  Yep, today is Friday, 7/31/15.  Happy, Happy,  Happy, Happy, Happy Friday!!!  (Pppsssttt…I REALLY need a weekend!!!)  😉

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

YOU ARE NOT ALONE

WOW!!!  I have been struggling with something recently.  Witnessing and observing how  people are craving, sometimes trying to DEMAND friendship, love, and acceptance from teammates.  OUCH!!!  Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

LOOK INSIDE YOURSELF, folks, for that friendship, love, and acceptance.  YOU ARE NOT ALONE!!! The Holy Spirit within you is awaiting the “CALL TO ACTION”:  TO LOVE, TO GUIDE AND TO PROTECT YOU…EVERY STEP OF THE WAY.  JESUS LOVES YOU…AND YOU…AND YOU…more than you can imagine!!!  And HIS love…IS THE GREATEST LOVE OF ALL, folks!!!  (Oh, how I love Whitney Houston’s song, “The Greatest Love Of All”!!!  Yep, I’m listening to it  on my I-phone RIGHT now!!! On re-play…over And Over, AND OVER…again, And Again AND AGAIN!!!“IT” (that love) is within EACH of us, folks.  Nourish it.  And…ENJOY your “JOURNEY” through “LIFE” as The Word completely fills and sustains you with… “The Greatest Love Of All”!!!

I can remember my struggles with anger and jealousy.  Trying so HARD to almost DEMAND love and acceptance from others.  OUCH!!!  Memories of the embarrassment and shame I felt for my uncontrollable behavior remain etched in my mind…AS A REMINDER of just how low I had been and how far I have come.  HALLELUJAH!!!  AMEN.

I am now feeling the need to add this little “REMINDER TO SELF,” folks:  Self, “Those teammates you DON’T want to “HELP” AT ALL are probably the ones that need your “HELP” the “MOST”!!!  BAM!!!  DOUBLE BAM, BAM!!!  Now, I will say a little prayer asking that I please listen to my “SELF”!!!  :/

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

“He said.  She said.”  BAM!!!  I GET IT, folks!!!  The lights turned “ON” inside my brain as I listened to a co-worker’s complaints…AGAIN!!!  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  I GET IT!!!  I THINK I ALWAYS KNEW “IT”, but guess what???   I FINALLY GET IT!!!  DOUBLE WOO-WHOOOOOO, WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  Thoughts, statements and opinions CAN and DO … “CHANGE” … from day to day.  DOUBLE BAM, BAM!!!  ANYTHING THAT CHANGES ANYTHING ABOUT ANYTHING AFFECTS EVERYTHING!!!  Hhhmmm…does that even make sense???  You “GET IT,” though.  Right???  RIGHT!!!   :/

STIRRING THE POT

EVERYONE…knows which co-worker(s) or teammate(s) like to stir the pot, right???  Or wrong???

Hhhmmm…”LIFE IS DIFFICULT,” folks.  For everybody.  Everywhere.  Yep, EVERYONE…HAS A STORY!!!  And everyone’s story…is “interesting”.  We are ALL struggling along this “JOURNEY” of “LIFE,” simply seeking to survive “IT”(LIFE).  Can we please “HELP” each other along the way???

Hhhmmm…”LIFE IS DIFFICULT,” folks.  For everybody.  Everywhere.  Your story is MORE interesting to “YOU”.  And it should be.  Be proud of your accomplishments…in spite of the struggles  faced.  WITHOUT BOASTING.  Allow others to witness how God is working within you by using your “DIFFICULTIES” as a reason to “HELP” others.  NOT…how Satan has convinced you to use those “DIFFICULTIES” as an excuse to HURT others!!!

Hhhmmm…”LIFE IS DIFFICULT, folks.  For everybody.  Everywhere.  Please do NOT allow yourself to forget that your co-workers (teammates) are struggling, as well.

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.

 

Proverbs 16:28  “A troublemaker plants the seeds of strife; gossip separates the best of friends.”  Amen.

 

 

“HONESTY”…

“is the BEST policy.”  Boy, we’ve heard that before, right???  RIGHT!!!  We ALL know how important it is to be honest, right???  RIGHT!!!  BUT…we ALL cross over “THAT” line a time or two almost EVERY single day.  Heavenly Father, please forgive us for we know not what we do or say.

How will other lives be impacted by our deceptive words or practices???  Do we even care about others???  Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

Most of us DO care about others, but we tend to care more about #1, “OURSELVES.”  Yep, I am guilty.  We are ALL guilty.  And we ALL find reasons to justify our deceitfulness…EVERY SINGLE DAY.  Heavenly Father, forgive us.  🙁

God SHOULD be #1, folks.  What a wonderful world this would be if we ALL considered…“W.W.J.D.”(What Would Jesus Do)…with every step we take up to and after crossing “THAT” line.  Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

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

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

JUST BE YOURSELF

Hhhmmm…and be “REAL” about who you claim yourself to be.  OUCH!!!  This applies to ALL of us, folks.  ALL OF US!!!  

We can ALL be pretty friendly and nicey-nicey to individuals when seeking to gain something from them, right???  RIGHT!!!  The truth about who we actually are can be determined at that very moment it becomes clear that nothing will be gained.  Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

BE YOURSELF, folks.  BE REAL.  And remember…

 GOD IS GOOD…ALL THE TIME!!!  ALL THE TIME…GOD IS GOOD!!!

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

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

HOW CAN I “HELP”…

what I can’t begin to understand???

OUCH!!!  A Vietnam vet…sacrificed EVERYTHING…for his country.  Suffered tremendously, with both physical and emotional wounds.  The acute pain and wounds have healed.  The chronic pain and scars remain, both physical and emotional.  He is struggling, folks.  Struggling to survive…“LIFE”.

Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK… Boy, I feel so VERY blessed for the opportunities I have to meet and touch the lives of so many individuals from different walks of life.  It amazes me how alike we ALL are.  Different folks.  Different stories.  Same or similar struggles.  Same goal(surviving “LIFE”).

So, tell me…what can I offer a Vietnam vet that may “HELP”???  Some therapeutic exercise and activities???  Yep!!!  Functional mobility and transfer training???  DOUBLE Yep, Yep!!!  And after listening to him speak for awhile, I felt compelled to say:  “God is with you.  Your load is too much to bear, for ANY man.  Just give it ALL to the Lord.  He can handle it.  YOU…don’t have to.”  BAM!!!   I do think he felt better after being reminded that he is NOT alone.

And THERE you have IT, folks.  “THAT” is how I can HELP what I can’t begin to understand.    I can offer rehab. services to “HELP”  physically and emotionally AND I can “HELP” spiritually by sharing the greatest healing power and the greatest love of ALL forward…the Word.  Amen.

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

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

QUOTE OF THE DAY, Sat. 7/18/15:

“LIFE GOES BY SO QUICKLY…NO MATTER HOW LONG IT IS.”

“LIFE GOES  BY SO QUICKLY,” I commented to a patient at work today.  And he added:  “NO MATTER HOW LONG IT IS.”  Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

A male patient of mine shared some of his “LIFE” history with me today, Sat. 7/18/15.  He spoke fondly and proudly of his most treasured memories.  Happy times with his wife to difficult times in WWII.  Funny…but all I could say was:  “LIFE GOES BY SO QUICKLY” as I selfishly thought about how quickly “MY” life, at 50, is passing by.  🙁 

BAM!!!  Without missing a beat he added to my comment with:  “NO MATTER HOW LONG IT IS”  as if he were adding to my thought about how quickly “MY” life is passing by in ending with reference  to himself and how quickly his “LONG” 88 years has passed by.  He was smiling, though.  And that smile meant that everything was “OKAY”.

WOW!!!  “THIS” was AMAZING, folks.  I cannot explain the feelings I experienced at that very moment, but they were VERY SPECIAL.  Yep, I bonded with another patient at work today…  😉   

“LIFE GOES BY SO QUICKLY…NO MATTER HOW LONG IT IS.”
