LEARNING TO PLAY…

the game of “LIFE”.  TO WIN!!!

BAM!!!  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  Have I ever mentioned that I am “TURTLE SLOW,” folks???  Well,  yes I have.  And Yes I am, BUT…guess what…???…???…???…“THE TURTLE  A-L-W-A-Y-S  WINS THE RACE”!!!  DOUBLE WOO-WHOOOOOO, WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!

“LIFE”…???…???…???…is a game I’ve been “PLAYING” for nearly 52 years, folks.  I am living and learning the “RULES” as I go!!!  (Pppsssttt…”I” have chosen to “PLAY” by God’s rules because I like to “WIN”!!!)  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!! 

My once, quick-tempered, verbal counter-attacks are becoming a thing of the past.  I must admit that I do STILL launch a word-or two into the open air AFTER “enough-is-enough,” however my shots are usually aimed at the specific target.  I do NOT mess around.  If I choose to comment “ABOUT” you it will be directly “TO” you in the face of controversy…NOT your back.  Now, “THAT”…???…???…???…is “MY” style.  “I”…???…???…???…am a FIGHTER!!!  I will NOT start a fight, but I will sure seek to finish it.  Right Here.  RIGHT NOW!!! 

Have you noticed how each teammate responds differently to most situations???  In their own unique and “DIFFERENT” manners???  BAM!!!  I believe “THIS” is according to God’s perfect design in order to “COVER ALL THE BASES”!!!  Hhhmmm…so that EVERYone has SOMEone, visibly, on their “TEAM”.  Double Hhhmmm, Hhhmmm…very intriguing, isn’t it???  THANK-YOU, JESUS!!!  He died for ALL of us…NOT just “SOME”.

I find my“SELF” realizing that many difficult situations I face are NOT what they appear.  For instance, a teammate’s apparent frustration with “ME” regarding “THIS” issue might actually be the subconscious release of her inner turmoil related to the unexpected death of a friend.  Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…Thank-you, Jesus, for containing and taming my response to a difficult situation.  No harm.  NO FOUL!!!  Now… RESUME PLAY!!!

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.
