“GETTING TO KNOW YOU”

Getting to know ALL about You.  Yep, I’m singing that ole’ show tune from “The King And I” musical production…INSIDE MY OWN SELF’S MIND!!! (And sounding pretty good, too!!!)  😉

BAM!!!  It’s 7:57 am on Sat., 5/21/16 as I sit here blogging about this…???…???…???…SONG I awoke to my “SELF” singing inside my own SELF’S mind (JILL’S WORLD), alerting me to this new IDEA for a blog post:  “GETTING TO KNOW YOU”.  :/  DOUBLE BAM, BAM!!!  :/  :/

My heart is smiling, folks.  I am…???…???…???…“HAPPY”!!!  Despite Life’s difficulties.  Even amidst the chaos occurring ALL around me/“US” (ALL OF US)EVERY SINGLE DAY!!!  The “CHAOS”…???…???…???…is escalating, folks…in EVERY facet of “LIFE”. 

BUT:  My heart is smiling.  BIGGER AND BIGGER EVERY DAY…as I draw nearer to God.  He draws nearer to me.  “GETTING TO KNOW [JESUS]” fills me with such great LOVE, HOPE, PEACE and JOY.  “HE”…FILLS ME UP…TO THE TOP!!!  BAM!!! (Yep, I’m singing “Half the Way” by Crystal Gayle-AND…I’m sounding pretty good, too!!!  Just sayin’)  😉

Draw nearer, folks.  He’s calling…

BE QUIET and LISTEN…You will “HEAR” Him calling your heart.  BE STILL and KEENLY AWARE…You will “FEEL” His presence in your heart.  It’s AMAZING, folks.  AMAZING GRACE.

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.

THE AMERICAN DREAM???

BAM!!!  I just came across an old post, written and published back on 10/3/13.  After editing the original, I will now re-post.  Enjoy.

 

GO TEAM USA!!!

WE’RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER, right???  Come on, folks…WE HAVE TO BE!!!  We live in the greatest country in the world, right???  LAND OF THE FREE.  HOME OF THE BRAVE.  RIGHT???  RIGHT!!!  I refuse to believe any differently.

I LOVE AMERICA and what this GREAT country stands for, but it appears that many of us are losing sight of what made us so great in the beginning.  Hhhmmm…What was it about this country that made so many people choose to migrate here???…???…???…Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

Freedom???  Opportunity?  Having as much as you are willing to work for OR having as little as you choose to work for.  That is your choice here in America.  The more you do, the more you have.  The less you do, the less you have.  Easy, right?

People with dreams tend to work harder.  FACT!  Why is it that so many individuals have no motivation these days, or worse yet…they have no dream for their future?  What happened to dignity?  Self-pride? Self-respect? What happened to:  “When the goin’ gets tough, the tough get goin’?”

I must admit that I am saddened to see what has happened to the, once great, American Dream…You know, that dream you could achieve with hard work and perseverance?  The home, 2 cars, yearly vacations, a savings account, money put away for retirement, etc., etc., etc.  The American Dream used to be something that you worked hard for and were proud of what you had achieved.  When did the American Dream become something that was simply given to folks by the U.S. government?

Working together, folks.  This is one of numbroneteam.net’s main themes.  Get it?  “WORK”-ing together?  We need each other.  We need each other to share a sense of responsibility to contribute the best of ourselves DAILY to help improve the quality of everybody’s life.  That requires “GIVING” of oneself, not simply “TAKING” from others.

Work.  Please get a job.  WORK.  Just do “SOMETHING”!!!  Contribute something by entering the work force.  There is something out there…for you, And You, AND YOU too!!!  I promise.  And when you’ve GOT NOTHING.…”ANY” THING is better than “NO” THING!!!  EVEN if it means earning less money than the Government gives you.  Serious folks, our country is going under!  Putting something into the “pot” via taxes helps ALL of us more than taking from the “pot” via welfare.

There are definitely those individuals who are unable to work.  We understand that. We are Americans, folks.  The most “GIVING” country in the world.  I do believe EVERY individual is proud of their efforts to support those in need.

There are, however, a whole lot of people out there doing very little to “HELP” themselves, let-alone, “HELPING OTHERS!!!  “SOME” people “COULD” work, but choose NOT to.  “SOME” people could do or give more, but DON’T.  Some are “GIVERS” who give more than they take.  And some are “TAKERS” who take more than they give.  Hhhmmm…which one are “YOU”???

All I’m asking, folks, is for us to regain that American pride.  To:  “BE ALL THAT YOU CAN BE.”  Not only for yourself, but for your family.  For your community.  For your state.  FOR OUR COUNTRY.  FOR OUR WORLD!

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

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

ALL GLORY BE TO GOD!!!  AMEN.
