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!!!
P.H.P., folks. People Helping People.
Give the BEST of yourself for “JUST” today…“EVERY” day!!!
ALL GLORY BE TO GOD!!! AMEN.
