“IF ONLY…”

BAM!!!  Pastor Walter began today’s sermon discussing an idea that we’ve ALL had a time or two in our lives:  “IF ONLY….” If ONLY I had done “THIS” then things may have gone differently.  If ONLY I had DONE “THAT”.  “IF ONLY…IF ONLY…IF ONLY!!!”  OUCH!!!

I must admit that I’ve lived MANY of my 51 years in that mind-set, folks.  “IF ONLY.”  Hhhmmm…funny how that phrase still brings tears to my eyes “TODAY” for different reasons than of yesterday (years ago).

Thank you, Jesus.  I am who I am BECAUSE of where I’ve been and how I responded to situations while simply seeking to survive my “LIFE”.  My heart aches, folks…IN A GOOD WAY!!!  AMEN.

I later cried in church during a gentleman’s testimony about the years of depression he has fought…and survived.  He described himself as being “NUMB”.  WHAT???!!!???!!!???!!!  Are you serious??? That gentleman’s “NUMB” = my state of “NOTHINGNESS”.  I went right over to him after church, shook his hand and thanked him for sharing.

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.  

YOURS IS YOURS. MINE IS MINE.

Handling negative situations in the work-place is “DIFFICULT,” folks!!!  YOUR WAY is “RIGHT” for YOU.  MY WAY is “RIGHT” for ME.  HIS WAY is “RIGHT” for HIM.  And HER WAY is “RIGHT” for HER. 

YOU like yours.  I like mine.  HE likes his.  SHE likes hers.

YOURS is NOT mine.  MINE is NOT his.  HIS is NOT hers and VICE-VERSA.

UNLESS YOU ARE THE BOSS…please do NOT tell teammates they should respond to situations YOUR way  (Pppssttt…”THEY”…are NOT “YOU”).   😉

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

ALL GLORY BE TO GOD!!!  AMEN.
