CLEANING THE COB-WEBS…

from my mind.  YUCK!!!  Let me tell ya, folks… “I’M A MESS”!!!  Why-oh-why, do I do this to my “SELF”???!!!???!!!???!!!  I “FORGET”…to give my troubles unto the Lord.  He can handle them.  I don’t have to…???…???…???…SUFFER!!!  Satan is attacking me, folks…FROM ALL ANGLES!!!  I am anxious.  Restless.  And “CRAZY”…AGAIN!!!

STOP!!!  IN THE NAME OF LOVE…(la,la,la,la,la-la.  Think it Oh-Oh-VER!!!)  Sorry, another jingle.  🙁  I do NOT like my “SELF” much at all right now, BUT…I canNOT get away from…???…???…???…“ME”!!!  OUCH!!! 

The funny thing is…???…???…???… my daughter, Danielle, recently shared a post on Facebook, I believe it was titled: “A Letter To The Friend Who Broke My Heart”.  I LOVED THAT POST.  I WAS SO PROUD THAT SHE SHARED IT WITH HER FRIENDS (Yep, her and I are “friends” on FB.  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!)

In short, the moral to that Facebook post is about learning to be a friend to your “SELF”.  I LOVED IT!!!  EXCELLENT “SHARE,” Danielle!!!  Now, can that just be a…???…???…???… coincidence???  HA!!!  I do NOT think so!!!  “I”…needed that message!!!  Right There.  RIGHT THEN!!!  I am just now, however, “GETTING” that message as I write this blog post!!!  BAM!!!  And…DOUBLE BAM, BAM!!!  Thanks, Danielle.  I sure needed that.

So I slept very little through the night.  I recently awoke for the third time…thinking, Thinking, THINKING.  ANXIETY IS HORRIBLE, folks.  It’s like I want to JUMP right out of my own skin to just get away from my “SELF”!!!  I could NOT think straight.  I, definitely, could NOT FOCUS on anything!!!  I actually pictured cobwebs in my brain, folks, diverting ALL my attention AWAY from God.  And then it hit me RIGHT up-side my head…OUCH!!!

“PRAY, Jill”.  PRAY…harder.  PRAY…louder.  PRAY…longer!!!  And then I shouted:  “BACK OFF SATAN!!!  MY GOD’S GREATER THAN YOU!!!”  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!! 

It is now 8:45 am, folks.  Mon., 4/18/16.  It’s time for me to get ready for work!!!  Thank you, Jesus.  I “GET” to go to a “J”“O”“B” that I actually love, Love, LOVE!!!  DOUBLE WOO-WHOOOOOO, WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!

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.

CHARACTER COUNTS!!!

BAM!!!  It is 12:24 a.m. this VERY second.  Monday 4/18/16.  Yep, I “GET” to work today, so why am I sitting here in our living room just beginning this new blog post???!!!???!!!???!!!  Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

I’ve had a…???…???…???…“DIFFICULT,” yet “AMAZING” weekend.  Sitting up blogging at this wee hour of the morning indicates that I am battling…AGAIN!!!  “BACK OFF SATAN!!!  MY GOD’S GREATER THAN YOU!!!”

Yep, Satan likes to interfere with my sleep.  I have ALWAYS had difficulty sleeping when my “INNER TURMOIL” gets stirred up.  I believe I’ve touched on this topic of my “Sleep Demons” in a previous post…or two(or maybe even more), somewhere…back there in this blog…“SOMEWHERE”.  Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

I awoke awhile ago and just laid there thinking, Thinking, and THINKING about this pretty “DIFFICULT,” yet “AMAZING” weekend, 4/16/16-4/17/16, just gone by.  Lots of thinking, Thinking, THINKING and praying, Praying, PRAYING.  More thinking, Thinking, THINKING and praying, Praying, PRAYING…

Folks, there is a difference between saying you “WANT” to “HELP” people and actually “HELPING” them.  “W.W.J.D.???”  What Would Jesus Do???  He was tempted, tested, and tried.  “HE”…was our perfect example.  Oh, how I wish I could remember that CHARACTER COUNTS…in ALL situations.  With ALL people–not just those I agree with on a consistent basis.  OUCH!!!  :/

BAM!!!  I am smiling RIGHT this VERY moment, folks.  “CHARACTER COUNTS.”  DOUBLE BAM, BAM!!!  A term stressed, and acknowledged with certain behaviors rewarded in elementary and middle schools these days.  Yep, the positive “PILLARS” of character.  (I believe there are 6 or 7)  🙂  I was ALWAYS so proud watching my children receive those awards as voted by their peers.  🙂    🙂   (STILL SMILING, folks…)  Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

This concept is supposed to carry over into adulthood, folks.  “CHARACTER COUNTS”…ALWAYS!!!  ALL people are created equal.  We should NOT judge teammates harshly with intent to punish or hurt them.  Do ALL things in LOVING KINDNESS with intent to “HELP”.  Everybody.  EVERYWHERE.  PERIOD!!!  RIGHT???!!!???!!!???!!!  RIGHT!!!

Well, “I” am STILL “TURTLE SLOW,” @numberoneteam.net!!!  BUT…  I am ALSO “TURTLE STEADY”!!!  MOVING IN THE “RIGHT” DIRECTION!!!  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  Looking forward to that glorious day when I will enter the kingdom of Heaven.  AND… I sure do “HOPE” to see you “THERE”…ONE FINE DAY!!!  AMEN.

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