“PRAYING for PEACEFUL PROTESTS”.  Every Second of EVERY MINUTE of  E-V-E-R-Y  S-I-N-G-L-E  D-A-Y!!!  Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

The news media “TERRORISTS”…are AT “IT” AGAIN!!!  “TERRORIZING” listeners with personal “TAKES” on their “VIEWS” of “PRE-“fabricated “NEWS”.  I have, just this morning, listened to numerous reports via television regarding expectations of “TERROR” attempts during the upcoming political conventions.  Hhhmmm…BREAKING NEWS…@ numberoneteam.net: 

“BAD” REPORTING YIELDS “BAD” RESULTS.  IF you predict “NEGATIVE”…then you should expect to get “NEGATIVE”.  PREDICT AND THEN EXPECT TO GET.  PREDICT… THEN GET.  PREDICT/GET. “SOME” people out there… SOMEWHERE, will aim to make your predictions come true.   Do ya REALLY need to give ANY-body ANY ideas???

HELLO…???…???…???…is anyone paying attention???  We have ALL SEEN how reporting “BAD” news contributes to getting “MORE” bad news to report.  BAD + BAD = MORE BAD, folks.  GOD IS GOOD!!!  Do NOT be surprised when you get MORE of what you “WANT”.  Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

How about…???…???…???…reporting “GOOD” news???  “CARING ENOUGH TO SHARE” by  spotlighting “GOOD” deeds, NOT “EVIL”.    (Pppsssttt…I just received advice from above to “SHARE LOVE FORWARD”…with ALL media outlets…EVERYWHERE!!!)  And “THAT” will be the END of this “RANT”.  AMEN.  AND THANK-YOU, JESUS.

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

THE “MEETING”

WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  My heart is smiling real, Real, REAL BIG, folks.  Right Here.  RIGHT NOW!!!  Now, “THIS” is a sweet story.  🙂  In fact, my heart is “STILL” smiling as I pull out mental images(memories) from my mental database (my mind/A.K.A.:  “JILL’S WORLD”) of an AMAZING evening I shared with …???…???…???…FRIENDS/TEAMMATES last evening.  SHALL WE???  WE SHALL!!!  😉  Where to begin???  Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

So, I met a friend/teammate (“THE MEETING”) at Panera Bread for dinner after work last evening.  Sandy.  Let me tell ya’ll a li’l bit about Sandy…Her id name in the Rehab. Dept. at MCNRC has evolved from: Sandy “Brazil” (she is from Brazil) to Sandy “Brazil America” (she is now an American citizen).  GET IT???  “CORNY,” I know!!!  We once had 2 Sandy’s in the dept!!!  :/  (HA!!!  Now “THIS”…???…???…???… is EXACTLY how “JILL #1” and “JILL THE GREATEST” evolved.  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  Pppsssttt…you can find details at the “Blog Development” page).  Yep, “CORNY!!!”  😉

Sandi and I just began dinner when a young man entered and sat at the long table next to ours on which he proudly and confidently placed his bible.  BAM!!!  He was there to meet friends/teammates for a bible study (“THE MEETING”)!!!  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  That bible was my cue to quickly pop RIGHT up and RIGHT-on-over to introduce myself.  BAM!!!  Thank-you, Jesus.  We became immediate friends/teammates before writing my name and website, “numberoneteam.net” on his notepad for future reference. ( I sure “HOPE” he reads the blog).  😉 

Sandi and I both enjoyed conversation with him for a short time and then returned to our dinner consumption .    It was sure shaping itself into a good, good evening ( Yep, I’m singing Chris Tomlin’s “Good, Good Father” inside my-own-“SELF’S” mind again!!!  And…SOUNDING PRETTY GOOD, TOO!!!  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!)  😉

The DINNER and COMPANY …???…???…???…were GREAT!!!  Sandi and I chatted awhile and shared photos of her recent vacation.  When, low-and-behold, another bible study teammate joined our “FRIEND” at the neighboring table…just as we were preparing to leave!!!  I KNOW I scared him as I walked RIGHT up to say “HELLO” at a beverage machine( he told me so)  :/  …and I then proceeded to ask that he visit “numberoneteam.net,” as well.  Hhhmmmmmm…think, Think, THINK…

What a good, good evening/[Father].  My heart is “STILL” smiling and I keep on singing, “Good Good Father” in sunny/happy “Jill-ville”.  Thank-you, Jesus.

WOO-WHOOOOOO, folks!!!  I NOW “GET”  to ready my“SELF” for work.  Oh, how I love, Love, LOVE my  “J-O-B”  at MCNRC!!!  DOUBLE WOO-WHOOOOOO, WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  HAVE A BLESSED DAY, folks!!!   A-N-D…it “JUST HAPPENS” to be…???…???…???…”FRIDAY”!!!  OH!!!  I simply canNOT make this stuff up,  folks!!!  THE BLESSINGS JUST KEEP ON COMING!!!  😉

HAPPY, HAPPY, HAPPY, HAPPY, HAPPY FRIDAY!!!  “THIS IS A DAY THE LORD HAS MADE.  LET US REJOICE AND BE GLAD IN IT.”  Psalm 118:24

“FREE” LOVE

BAM!!!  Now, “THIS” is a blog post about God’s LOVE.  There is NO other “LOVE” like it, folks.  And…???…???…???…He gives “IT” freely.  Immensely.  And unconditionally.  PERIOD!!!  Jesus loves ALL OF US!!!  Me, you, him, her,”THEM”.  You and YOU too!!!  Yep, Jesus loves ALL of us!!!  Everybody.  EVERYWHERE.

I currently “SEE” so, So, SO many teammates struggling through “LIFE”.  Searching so desperately for something they already have.  They just don’t know it.  AND… it’s “FREE” for-the-taking!!!   “IT”…???…???…???…is “LOVE,” folks.  GOD IS LOVE.  AND LOVE IS GOD.

“IT”(LOVE/GOD) is within Everybody.  EVERYWHERE.  Please, JUST TAKE “IT”  (LOVE/GOD).  And allow that LOVE to grow…???…???…??? STRONGER EVERY DAY!!! (Singing Crystal Gayle’s, “Half The Way” to my “SELF” in “JILL’S WORLD”.  And sounding pretty good, too)  :/   Sorry.  I seem to be obsessed with reporting the different songs running through my mind during different ideas…with red, white, and blue NIKE’ shoes on!!!  “JUST DO IT”!!!  GO TEAM NIKE’!!!  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  :/  :/

Yep, He (GOD/LOVE) is already within you, folks.  Now, “JUST TAKE IT”!!!  Take that LOVE (GOD) and…???…???…???…“RUN WITH IT (HIM)”!!!  (Aaahhhhhh!!! Those silly ideas with NIKE’ shoes on are…???…???…???…“DRIVING MISS JILLY”…CRAZY!!!)

PLEASE!!!  GET ‘CHUR NIKE’ SHOES ON!!!  And…”JUST TAKE IT”!!!  😉

THE SAFE

Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

I went to bed early, around 2:00am-ish this morning.  And awoke EARLY, as well, around 6:15-ish a.m. with numerous thoughts…RUNNING through my mind (JILL’S WORLD)…in red, white, and blue Nike’ Shoes!!!  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  (The pics “in,” OR “running through,” my mind are so, So, SO BRIGHT & BEAUTIFUL, folks!!!)  GO TEAM NIKE’!!!  DOUBLE WOO-WHOOOOOO, WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  😉

I awoke so early “THINKING”….  Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINKING about…???…???…???…“SECRETS”…and “MONEY”.  “SECRETS.”  Then “MONEY”!!!  MORE “SECRETS”… MORE “MONEY”.  :/  WHAT???!!!???!!!???!!!  And then “IT” hit me… BAM!!!  RIGHT UPSIDE MY HEAD, OUCH!!!

“JESUS IS THE ONLY “SAFE” THAT WILL KEEP BOTH OUR SECRETS AND MONEY SAFE!!!  😉  (Pppsssttt…I think I’m on to something here, folks!!!)  😉

At nearly 52, I am realizing that MANY earthly teammates WILL TAKE AND SHARE BOTH  YOUR SECRETS & YOUR MONEY!!!  WITH OR WITHOUT YOUR PERMISSION!!!  (I’m NOT sure “THIS” is funny, but the “U.S. GOV’T”  suddenly came to mind!!!  Right Here.  RIGHT NOW!!!)  😉  Hhhmmm…

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

Loving our men and women in “BLUE”.  EVERYWHERE!!!  RIGHT HERE…@numberoneteam.net!!!  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!

HA!!!  Now, “THIS”…???…???…???…is ABSOLUTELY HYSTERICAL, folks!!!  I invite you to come along on  another trip to “JILL’S WORLD” as I recount an event that occurred with teammates on Tuesday, 7/12/16.   I simply canNOT make this stuff up, folks. I’m actually “STILL” chuckling.  Ready???  READY!!!  Now, where do I begin???  Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

There have been ALOT of cop…???…???…???…“STORIES” in the news lately.  :/   UGH!!!  ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!!  We do NOT need to keep re-hashing the same-ole’, same-ole’ “STUFF” over, And Over, AND OVER…again, And Again, AND AGAIN!!!  Just “STOP!!!  IN THE NAME OF LOVE[GOD]”.  ENOUGH IS ENOUGH, news media of America!!!

Thank-you, Jesus, for ALL the Christian radio and television shows that continue focusing on the GOOD NEWS of “HOPE” that is still VERY much alive in the Christian faith.  AMEN.  I’m seriously  beginning to view most other news outlets (ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, FOX, etc.) as…???…???…???…“TERRORISTIC”.  :/  (Pppsssttt…am I allowed to say that???) They are seriously terrorizing us with their ploys to add fuel to the fire!!!  :/  :/  I sure “HOPE” I’m “allowed” to say that…here in America, quote:  “LAND OF THE FREE”.  WAIT…we ARE “FREE,” to speak our minds…here in America, right???  Or wrong???  Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

Sorry for that little distraction, folks.  So, what was so funny at work earlier today???  I am NOT kidding, folks!!!  Numerous (3) teammates were discussing traffic stops and traffic tickets at work today.  Some even spoke of being angry “AT” the police.  HA!!!  I had to interject RIGHT there with:  “WHAT???!!!???!!!???!!!  “YOU” were speeding???  And then YOU were mad at the cop for giving you a speeding ticket???!!!???!!!???!!!”  HUH???…???…???…  :/  HELLO…  DON’T SPEED “IF” YOU DON’T WANT TO GET A SPEEDING TICKET!!!  :/  :/  I mean…???…???…???…”RIGHT???!!!???!!!???!!!”

It is now 12:14 a.m., Wed., 7/13/16.  Oh bother,(thinkin’ about Pooh Bear[Danielle] again) MY HEAD HURTS!!!  Time to call it a night, folks!!!

LOSING SIGHT…AGAIN!!!

Forgive me, Father!!!  For I have “LOST” my way…AGAIN!!!  My heart aches, yet it is smiling.  Today’s daily devotion reminded me to ALWAYS call on “JESUS”.  ALWAYS.  In Good times.  And in bad.

“WHISPER” His name, Sarah Young advised me today in her devotional, “JESUS CALLING”.  Well…???…???…???…“I” whispered, “JESUS,”  and He came back with a loving word(the name of someone special to me) that would “OPEN” my eyes, yet again.  According to where I am  “TODAY,” His message was crystal clear:  Do NOT lose sight of those things(values) and people who are near and dear to you on your “JOURNEY” from “HERE” to “THERE”.  Thank-you, Jesus.

“HANG ON…”

to Jesus…NO MATTER WHAT!!!  BAM!!!  “JUST HANG ON TO JESUS, ” folks!!!  And pray, Pray, PRAY!!!

:/  Aaahhhhhh!!!  A DISTRACTION has JUST entered “JILL’S WORLD,” folks!!!  And I canNOT get “SLOOPY” out of “JILL-VILLE”!!!  :/  (I just hopped on over to my i-phone and am listening to “Hang On Sloopy” by the Mccoys, released in 1965.  It’s a good, good song- as I am now distracted by Chris Tomlin’s, “Good, Good Father”)  🙁  “Flighty Jill”…strikes AGAIN!!!  WELCOME TO “MY WORLD”!!!  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!

My heart is a little “HEAVY,” folks.  I, initially, awoke to “HAPPY” thoughts this a.m.  and began thinking and praying…Right Here.  RIGHT NOW.  Quickly followed by More Thinking.  More Praying.  And still… MORE THINKING/MORE PRAYING!!!  Then “BAM!!!”  I jumped on Facebook.  OUCH!!!

My heart is “HEAVY” as I quickly noted the, “RIGHTLY-“ felt, anger/frustration regarding the course our country is following.  FROM BOTH SIDES (RIGHT & LEFT).  “I”…GET IT, folks.  The feelings…???…???…???…are what they are!!!  :/  The expression of those feelings, HOWEVER, may be teetering back and forth as we each walk that narrow line between SANITY and IN-SANITY.  “LIFE IS DIFFICULT,” folks!!!  For Everybody.  EVERYWHERE!!!

We are ALL IMPERFECT…IN EVERY WAY!!!  (Aaahhhhhh!!!  STILL…singing “Good Good  Father” by Chris Tomlin in “JILL-VILLE”.  And sounding pretty good, too!!!  Just sayin’.)  😉  My point being:  Jesus is perfect in EVERY way.  “WE” humans…are NOT.  We ALL…stray OFF the “RIGHT” path, folks.  JESUS “STILL” LOVES US ANYWAY!!!  ALL THE WAY…TO ETERNITY (infinity) AND BEYOND!!!  (Buzz Lightyear…AGAIN!!!  UGH!!!:/

Yep…we ALL stray, folks.  DAILY.  We are “WHO” we are based on where we’ve been and how we’ve responded to situations while simply seeking to SURVIVE…”LIFE”!!!  Can we please just try to “HELP” each other along the way from “HERE” to “THERE”???  JESUS’ WAY.  Not our own!!!  😉

“FIRE!!!”

DON’T DO IT, JILL!!!  Do NOT add fuel to the burning “FIRE” by inserting 2 cents of…???…???…???…common sense that MOST folks do NOT think they need!!!

WHEW!!!  I survived a “DIFFICULT” day, or situation…at work this past week, folks.  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  Thank-you, Jesus!!!  I am growing, folks.  Growing in my FAITH as I continue to…???…???…???… “just put one foot in front of the other”…(I think that’s a children’s song.  “I think.”)  😉  And I’m singing it to my “SELF” in “JILL’S WORLD”.  Sounding pretty good, too.  JUST SAYIN’.  :/  Sorry.   :/  :/ 

So I, unfortunately, found my“SELF” among a crowd of…???…???…???… “COMPLAINERS”!!!   Just the other day, folks !!!  And boy…were they “COMPLAINING!!!”  ABOUT TEAMMATES…who were NOT even present for rebuttal.  OUCH!!!  I “SHOULD” have left the immediate area…IMMEDIATELY!!!  But, did NOT!!!  DOUBLE OUCH, OUCH!!!  🙁  

I do NOT tolerate “COMPLAINERS” very well at all, folks.  In fact…“COMPLAINERS” actually DRIVE ME “CRAZY”…”ER”…than I already am!!!  HA!!!  So, “ME” being “ME,” I just HAD to launch a rebuttal FOR the absent teammates. (“fighting for the underdog”…AGAIN!!!😉  Yep…”I did,” folks.  I must admit I was shocked at how emotional I became as I listened to the conversation, or “gossip session”.  I was boiling (angry) inside!!!  But able to keep my comments generic.  NOT DIRECT.  THANK-YOU, JESUS!!!

We ALL make mistakes, folks.  We are ALL sinners…simply seeking to survive “LIFE”.  It hurts to “SEE” and witness the ignorance out there…in the “REAL” world.  People “SEE” others’ mistakes or sins quite readily while they are blind to their own.  Even when those mistakes or sins are, in fact, quite similar.  Forgive me, Father.  I am guilty of this my “SELF” as I imagine shaking common “SENSE” into specific teammates who just don’t seem to “GET IT”…”MY” way.  Please provide the comfort and peace I desire as I come to You on bended knee seeking guidance for ALL.  According to Your will, Father.  Not my own.  AMEN.

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