INVESTING “TODAY”…

for ETERNITY.  Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

Are you spending, or “INVESTING,” your money wisely???  How about your time???  OUCH!!!  I’m still learning, folks, @numberonetem.net.  And STILL moving forward quite slowly…at a “TURTLE’S PACE”!!!  As we ALL know, though…THE TURTLE  A-L-W-A-Y-S  WINS THE RACE!!!  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  

Accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior is  the ONLY way to Heaven, folks.  “INVEST” your time and money wisely.  “TEACH YOUR CHILDREN WELL.” ( Yep, I’m singing that song by Crosby, Stills & Nash in “JILL’S WORLD”)  😉  And… BE ONE/MAKE ONE, as in:  Be a disciple who makes a disciple.  AMEN.

We’re ALL on a “JOURNEY,” folks.  From “HERE”…to “THERE”. I sure “HOPE” ( Heaven Over-Powering Earth) to “SEE” you “THERE”…ONE FINE DAY!!! 

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.

 

 

 

REVISITING THE PAST…

with a smile on my face and “warm fuzzies” in my heart.  Now, “THIS”…???…???…???…is “SWEET,” folks.  I invite you to take a trip with me down Memory Lane for a quick second, maybe two.  Hhhmmm……think, Think, THINK…

I just re-connected with an old…???…???…???… “CRUSH” via Facebook.  We didn’t really date.  We were too young for that, perhaps ages 11-12ish and 13-14ish, or-so.   It was cute, though.  Perhaps it was…???…???…???… “PUPPY LOVE”.  Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

Boy, I was sure a mixed-up, messed-up kid back in those days.  I just didn’t know it yet.  I remember that “CUTE” little “thing” we had…back in the day.  Yep, my heart is smiling.

“THANK-YOU”… for the friend request, my friend.

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

P.H.P., folks.  People Helping People…to survive “LIFE”.

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

ALL GLORY BE TO GOD!!!  AMEN.

 

 

 

“THE STRUGGLE”…???…???…???

= “SURVIVING LIFE,” folks.  BAM!!!  LIVING “TOGETHER”!!!   STRUGGLING “TOGETHER”!!!  SURVIVING “TOGETHER”… OR NOT!!!  😉  Right???  RIGHT!!!  GO TEAM!!!  WE’RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER!!!  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!

THE QUESTION???…???…???…How do we survive  this “JOURNEY” through “LIFE” in search of “DESTINATION HEAVEN”???

THE ANSWER???…???…???… “FOLLOW JESUS”.

–ASK…  and you shall “RECEIVE” according to God’s will.

–LISTEN… and you shall “HEAR” according to God’s will.

–LOOK… and you shall “SEE” according to God’s will.

–ACCEPT OR RECEIVE (God’s gifts)… and you shall be “BLESSED” beyond belief.  According to God’s will.  NOT YOURS.

The Holy Bible is God’s “SURVIVAL GUIDE for LIFE”.  Jesus is “THE WAY”.  Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

Will you read His “GUIDE”???

Will you follow “THE WORD”???  “We will.  We Will.  We WILL!!!”

And ALL God’s people said:  “A-M-E-N”!!!  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.

 

 

TEAM “JINA”

Here we are, folks, TEAM JINA:

 JILL+ NENA = (JI)LL + NE(NA) =(JI) + (NA) = “JINA”  😉

FullSizeRender                       +                    FullSizeRender

The following jingle goes along quite nicely  to the tune of “Venus” by Frankie Avalon:

“Team Jina is our name.  We’re so happy.  Every day is just the same.  We go out there helping patients on their way.  They’re gettin’ better every day!!!  We are TEAM JINA.  Team Jina.  Team Jina”.

I simply canNOT explain the hysterical conversation we shared at work this morning, Fri. 5/27/16!!! It was too, Too, TOO FUNNY, folks!!!  At it’s conclusion, however, Nena and I came up with…???…???…???…a cute little jingle to go along with the chant, “SATAN, BE GONE” that I often use to make the devil flee!!!  HEE-HEE-HEE!!!

Together, we (TEAM JINA) decided that “SATAN, BE GONE”  should be a hair cleaning product (shampoo) displayed on an advertising commercial to the tune of, “I’m Gonna Wash That [thought]\Man Right Out of My [mind]\Hair” from “South Pacific!!!  DOUBLE HEE-HEE-HEE, HEE-HEE-HEE!!! I’m STILL chuckling here at numberoneteam.net, folks!!!

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.

 

ARE WE HAVING ANY “FUN” YET???

NOPE.  I’M NOT HAVING FUN, my friends.

OUCH!!!  My heart aches.  It is Friday, 5-27-16.  My morning has been quite…???…???…???…“DIFFICULT”…ALREADY!!!  I invite you to come along, folks.  Please come.  We’re taking another trip to “JILL’S WORLD”!!!  COME…

So, I awoke with a headache, EARLY(5:30 am-ish), to negative thoughts re: a bad dream.  I quickly prayed to the Lord and shouted (inside my- own-self’s mind), “BACK OFF, SATAN!!!  MY GOD’S GREATER THAN YOU!!!”  I paused in anticipation, awaiting the next thoughts to enter my mind.  BAM!!!  Those nasty negative thoughts continued, so I shouted AGAIN, but LOUDER (inside of my own self’s mind) “SATAN, BE GONE!!!”  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  It worked…TEMPORARILY!!!

I then hopped on-line via my i-phone!!!  OUCH!!!  Did you know that “SOME” folks like to share “HATE” via social media???  DOUBLE OUCH, OUCH!!!  I began typing a reply to one specific post, but then STOPPED…IN THE NAME OF LOVE!!! (Yep, I’m singing inside my-own-“SELF’S” mind!!!  And sounding pretty good to my“SELF,” too!!!)  😉   So, I’m BLOGGING in order to HELP my“SELF” feel better instead of REPLYING to that post, negatively, which would only anger my FB friend.

So, how do I convey my thoughts…???…???…???…“LOVINGLY” regarding the “HATE” I perceived being shared via social media this a.m.???   I, too, like to have “FUN”.  😉  Just NOT when that “FUN” involves hurting others in any way, shape, or form.  Period.  Remember:  JESUS LOVES EVERYBODY!!!  EVERYWHERE.  Even those individuals Satan wants you to hate.  Just STOP!!!  In the name of LOVE…  😉

“THINK ABOUT IT!!!” (A tribute to my late brother, Bob.  May you R.I.P.)

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.

 

BE STILL, JILL

BAM!!!  OUCH!!!  STOP, JILL!!!  😉  “IN THE NAME OF LOVE…”  (Yep…I’m singin’ again.  Inside my-own-SELF’S mind, “JILL’S WORLD”.  And sounding pretty good, too!!!)  😉

OOPSE, I did “IT” again!!!  Trying to “FIX” a teammate’s problem that was NOT mine to fix!!!  DOUBLE OUCH, OUCH!!!  “JESUS CALLING” directs me to Psalm 34:19 today, May 25th, which states:  “The righteous person faces many troubles, but the Lord comes to the rescue each time.”   The Lord will come to the rescue.  “I”…do NOT need to “FIX” others’ problems.   Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

BAM!!!  And DOUBLE BAM, BAM!!!  Support ALL teammates, Jill!!!  STOP jumping in to support the “UNDERDOGS” in the faces of…???…???…???…“THE COMPLAINERS”!!!  JUST STOP IT, Jill!!!   THE COMPLAINERS need my support, or “HELP” too!!!  Through love, kindness, and understanding.  NOT… by reasoning about “THE NATURE of MAN”…to make mistakes.  UNINTENTIONALLY!!!  :/  (We ALL make mistakes, right???  RIGHT!!!)

I think I actually HURT the “COMPLAINER” by supporting those teammates she was trying to complain about!!!  NOTE TO JILL:  LEARN TO JUST LISTEN!!!  COMPLAINERS NEED SUPPORT, TOO!!!    ALL sides of every situation are in need of support as ALL sides can,  generally, be seen when viewed from their differing, selfish viewpoints. BAM!!!  “THINK ABOUT IT!!!” (a tribute to my late brother, Bob.  May you R.I.P)

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

I am not yet OOB (out-of-bed) on this fine Monday morning, folks, BUT…I am already so, So, SO excited to begin this day, 5/23/16!!!  I awoke as usual:  thinking and praying.  More Thinking and More Praying.  MORE THINKING AND MORE PRAYING!!!  And then “IT” happened…

I opened and read my daily devotion in “Jesus Calling,” by Sarah Young.  BAM!!!  It says that God has placed many, Many, MANY treasures along the path I will choose to follow today.  I AM so, So, SO EXCITED!!!  I canNOT wait to partake in this “TREASURE HUNT”!!!  Today AND for the rest of the tomorrows I am blessed to experience here on this earth.

ARE YOU READY???!!!???!!!???!!!  GET SET.  Now, go, Go, GOOOoooooo… and find those treasures awaiting discovery along “YOUR” path from “HERE” to “THERE”.

WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  I’ve already found a few treasures, folks, before even crawling OOB (out-of-bed) to ready my“SELF” for work on this FINE Monday morning!!!  THIS IS THE DAY THE LORD HAS MADE.  WE WILL REJOICE AND BE GLAD IN IT.

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

Psalm 118:24, NLT

” ‘FESSING-UP”…

to additional “FLIGHTINESS”…in “JILL’S WORLD”.  :/

Pastor Walter delivered an exceptional sermon at ABC (Anastasia Baptist Church) here at the island campus in St. Augustine, FL on Saturday evening, 5/21/16.  We are continuing in the series of “GOD’S DESIGN FOR MARRIAGE” with this week’s focus on “COMMUNICATION”.  Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

“COMMUNICATION”…???…???…???…is a BIG deal, folks.  For ALL relationships.  Pastor Walter spoke of using communication in positive forms, such as to resolve conflict, to share the Truth, to build up rather than destroy, and to convey LOVE, KINDNESS, and FORGIVENESS.

GREAT message!!!  I do think, however, that I already knew what he was talking about, folks.  And I really DID listen to the words he spoke.  I did, I Did, I DID!!!  BUT…  😉

Those words he spoke did NOT appear to be directed at “ME,” Right Here.  RIGHT NOW.  HA!!!  I kept nodding my head in agreement during the service and I even stated, “YES” and “AMEN” a couple times…as his words surely applied to my teammates.  It is so, So, SO funny how that message just didn’t seem to apply to “ME”.  Not Right Here.  NOT RIGHT NOW!!!

WHAT???!!!???!!!???!!!  Ya see Chase, my son, has allergies and he was a bit…???…???…???…“STUFFY” at church Saturday evening.  Sniffling and breathing VERY loudly…RIGHT BESIDE ME!!!  I get so easily distracted, folks, and I must admit that I was getting a bit irritated by his loud, “STUFFY-NOSE”  breathing pattern.  Yep, I got irritated…in ALL the distraction of loud, stuffy-nose breathing during church.  So, I FINALLY leaned over and whispered:   “Breathe through your mouth!!!”  :/  Yep, I did.

OUCH!!!  But communication is so very important, Jill!!!  Use it wisely to resolve conflict.  To build up rather than destroy.  To share LOVE, KINDNESS, and FORGIVENESS.  DOUBLE OUCH, OUCH!!!  My husband sighed as he questioned:

“BOY, YOU SURE DIDN’T “GET” THE MESSAGE, DID YA???” :/

I quickly apologized.  And Chase accepted.  I’m still learning at numberoneteam.net, folks!!!

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

FLIGHTY JILL…

DOES IT AGAIN!!!  OUCH!!!  Now, “THIS” post is an addendum to the previous post, “PUMPING IRON…” in order to “CLEAR-UP” some of my confusion.

It seems that I read August 22 instead of May 22 in Sarah Young’s book, “JESUS CALLING,” and then blogged about it in the previous post to begin my day!!!   :/  OOPSE!!!  WRONG DAY!!!  BUT GOOD MESSAGE …ANYWAY!!!  😉

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.

PUMPING IRON…

with JESUS!!!  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!

BAM!!!  It is 9:11 am (Ouch…9/11), folks.  I canNOT make this stuff up!!!  I simply looked up in the corner of my computer to check the time, and quickly typed it Right There.  RIGHT THEN…as my mind raced forward to NUMEROUS ideas, such as:  1-It’s mid-morning already; 2-I have been thinking, praying.  More Thinking.  More Praying.  And…MORE THINKING.  MORE PRAYING; and 3-today’s daily devotional even requests that we “develop,” or work-out, our “trust muscles;” and 4-then “9/11” struck me right up-side my head!!!  OUCH!!!

Wow.  The exact moment I checked the time, 9:11 am, reminded me of the 9/11 terror attacks right here in America while attempting to write a blog post about “TRUSTING GOD”.  POWERFUL STUFF, folks.  TRUSTING GOD.  Developing our “trust muscles”.  I’ve got chills…

Hhhmmm… Sarah Young even recommends speaking out loud( I SHOUT- “out” loud AND/OR sometimes I SHOUT- “in”soft/”in”side my own SELF’S mind, “JILL’S WORLD”) to make Satan flee the scene:

“BACK OFF, SATAN!!!  MY GOD’S GREATER THAN YOU!!!”  Or,  “SATAN-BE-GONE!!!” (HA!!!  That’s an old post back there…somewhere…in this blog)  😉 WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  AND…I do NOT stop shouting until he’s GONE, folks!!!   DOUBLE WOO-WHOOOOOO, WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!

My heart is happy.  I am starting my day off by…???…???…???…working out with Jesus to “develop [my] trust muscles”!!!  BAM!!!  I am “GETTING FIT,” folks…for “ETERNITY”…and beyond!!!  “GETTING FIT WITH JESUS!!!”  DOUBLE BAM, BAM!!!

Read your bible or listen via audio, sing praises, enjoy fellowship and share His word forward, worship, love ALL things, live “LIFE,” and… SMILE,  🙂  BE HAPPY!!!  JESUS LOVES YOU!!!  🙂  🙂

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

ALL GLORY BE TO GOD!!!  AMEN.
