“FACE IT WITH A GRIN.” Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…
WOO-WHOOOOOO!!! God just hit the “PLAY/SING” button…AGAIN!!! DOUBLE WOO-WHOOOOOO, WOO-WHOOOOOO!!! It’s time for another jingle, folks. READY??? HERE WE GOOOoooooo…
“I’m so happy. You’re so happy. We’re so happy. So happy. So happy!!! WHY??? Jesus loves me. Jesus loves you. Jesus loves us. He loves us SO MUCH!!!”
“WHAT IS GOING ON???!!???!!!???!!!” Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…
I awoke this morning and began thinking…IMMEDIATELY!!! Thinking. And praying. More thinking. More praying. I was NOT in the best mood, folks… allowing myself to be upset that the seeds of Faith I’ve been planting in others have NOT been growing. OUCH!!! Or have they??? Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…
Ya see, I now realize that my unexplainable “draw” to certain teammates has been purposeful. TOTALLY!!! UNBEKNOWNST TO ME…I have been planting seeds for years, with REAL purpose. But times are tough, folks. People are hurting. And people are “looking for LOVE in ALL THE WRONG PLACES!!!” 🙁
I shall “BE STILL”. There is NO need to be upset that the seeds I’ve planted are not growing at a rapid rate. “THAT’S OKAY!!!” THE SEEDS HAVE BEEN PLANTED!!! PATIENCE…is a virtue, folks. I will pray. And be patient. Growth will surely occur. In time. Maybe it won’t be “MY” time, but growth WILL occur…AT JUST THE RIGHT TIME!!! HIS TIME!!!
I was a bit upset, lying here in bed, thinking…UNTIL that initial song popped into my mind...MAGICALLY!!! And I suddenly began singing to myself, “Open Up Your Heart (and Let The Sunshine In),” written by Stuart Hamlin, performed by Cowboy Church Sunday School. Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…
Years ago, my mother played the piano…ALOT!!! I remember Laura, Lynn and myself gathering around and we’d all sing together!!! All 4 of us!!! Hhhmmm…good memories:
“Those Were The Days my friend. We thought they’d never end. We’d sing and dance forever-and-a-day. We’d live the lives we choose. We’d fight and NEVER lose. Those were the days. Oh yes, those were the days!!!” By Mary Hopkin, 1968
Yep, we sure enjoyed music at our house…thanks to mom. Sorry for the distraction, folks. My heart aches. But it’s a “GOOD” ache. 😉 Boy, “THAT” memory came flooding back out of nowhere!!! I’m happy, folks. My heart is smiling… 🙂
So anyways, my earlier sadness was replaced with…???…???…??? God’s Love, Peace and Joy. Yep, God sure hit the PLAY/SING button throughout this entire post!!!
Planting seeds of Faith into the lives of others is “THE GREATEST GIFT” we can give to anyone. Perhaps they will be privy to its presence…ONE FINE DAY!!!
I SAID A PRAYER FOR YOU TODAY!!! AMEN.
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.
