in “JILL’S WORLD”. WOW!!! I am AMAZED to look back over the past few years since being struck with this blogging notion of team building via the internet. (Thank you, Ms. Pamela Masters) Hhhmmm…WHO KNEW…???…???…??? GOD KNEW!!!
Now, “THIS” post…???…???…???…will take us on a very, Very, VERY heart-felt trip to “JILL’S WORLD,” folks. I invite you to join me as I, once again, revisit “Memory Lane” in “Jill-ville”. Ready??? READY!!! Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…
I am suddenly reminded of my husband’s little red button-thingy on his desk that says…“THAT WAS EASY”….EVERY time its pushed!!! BAM!!! I do NOT have the button with me Right Here, RIGHT NOW, but my mind KEEPS mashing that silly button and saying it over, And Over, AND OVER…again, And Again, AND AGAIN!!! Aaahhhhhh!!! “THAT WAS EASY!!!”
I SIMPLY canNOT believe it, folks. My life has continued forward in such a hurry, Hurry, HURRY-UP and go, Go, GO mode that I am NOT quite sure how to explain it. Hhhmmm…it’s almost kinda “CRAZY,” but this “hurry, Hurry, HURRY-UP and go, Go, GO mode that I’ve been blindly traveling has been moving forward in such slow, Slow, SLOW motion!!! :/ FOR YEARS NOW!!! (Pppsssttt…”TURTLE SLOW”!!!) 😉
I am certain previous blog posts discuss the comings and goings of ideas for numberoneteam.net that I have actively pursued for the past three years…while continuing to blog about daily “LIFE”. Possible ideas for expansion were discussed at meetings with ABC church staff, with co-workers and superiors, with community groups, professional groups, political groups, etc. ALL…while “DRIVING MISS JILLY” (a previous blog post)…???…???…???…CRAZY!!! :/
It’s almost FUNNY how I ALWAYS knew back in those initial meetings with Pastor Walter that I wanted to “HELP” people…???…???…???…who were, quote…“OUT THERE…SOMEWHERE”. Not a specific church-based group of people to “HELP,” yet a group of people somehow connected “WITH” the church. Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…
I remember getting my“SELF” involved with groups out in the community that nearly gobbled me-up WHOLE!!! BUT…they ended up pushing me RIGHT back home with an inner awareness that I somehow needed to be connected with ABC(Anastasia Baptist Church) in an effort to: “Unite individuals through spiritual and motivational team building in a manner that encourages P.H.P., folks. People Helping People…to survive “LIFE”. ”
So the past month has been a whirlwind of my falling into the “RIGHT” situations at the “RIGHT” times. From special trips over to ABC during the weekend of that “TOGETHER 2016” event in Washington D.C. and meeting folks associated with Early Risers LifeGroup… to my “NEW” position as Director of the HomeAgain of St. John’s OUTREACH project that develops “Trust Packs” for our area homeless “TEAMMATES”. BAM!!! “P.H.P., folks. People Helping People”. Touching the lives of those who are…???…???…???…”OUT THERE…SOMEWHERE”…in need of “HELP,” A.K.A.: meeting Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. DOUBLE BAM, BAM!!! Now, “THIS”…???…???…???…is simply AMAZING, folks!!! THANK YOU, JESUS!!! AMEN.
Here, I have been searching and searching…OUT THERE…SOMEWHERE…for “SOMETHING” which I now KNOW to be “ER” (Early Risers), a one-year-old LifeGroup at ABC with an established Outreach project for HomeAgain. I, SIMPLY, canNOT make this stuff up, folks. God’s timing is always…???…???…???…”PERFECT”. THANK-YOU, JESUS!!! AMEN.
The previous Directors (a husband/wife team) have stepped-down secondary to increased work, family, health, and “LIFE” responsibilities/obligations. Now, this couple is AMAZING, folks. The Outreach program is already up and running…SUCCESSFULLY!!! Which speaks to their TREMENDOUS leadership in the developmental stages of this Outreach project!!! I will simply be stepping into an established “Team building” opportunity. WITH…offers from “ER” teammates to “HELP” out as needed. NOW…???…???…???…”THAT WAS EASY!!!” THANK-YOU, JESUS!!! AMEN.
AND…???…???…???…I have been so painfully UP-FRONT with this entire group about my “flightiness” and “craziness,” YET…they have accepted me “AS-IS”!!! WOO-WHOOOOOO!!! AGAIN…I simply canNOT make this stuff up, folks. “LIFE” is so, So, SO AMAZING if and when you are: “Holding God’s Hand” (a previous blog post dated 8/5/16).
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.
