CONSTANT WORSHIP…

“HELPS” to keep us humble.  And “NICE”.  :/  WHAT???!!!???!!!???!!!

My bible reading today reminds me of the benefits of being in constant worship with our Father.  Thanking God for ALL things.  B-I-G  and small.  For everything.  Everything.   EVERYTHING.   ABSOLUTELY  E-V-E-R–Y-T-H-I-N-G!!!  Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

What better way to “STRUGGLE”-through-the-day???   Right???  Than by THANKING GOD…for the GOOD.  The BAD…and the UGLY???   RIGHT!!!  As Paul declares:  “…For when I am weak, then I am strong.” (2 Corinthians 12:10)

Boy, “WHAT A WONDERFUL WORLD” this would be…“IF” we could spend much of our time in thought, worshiping Jesus…wouldn’t it???    Thanking God for EVERYTHING…every second, of Every Minute, of EVERY HOUR…OF  E-V-E-R-Y  S-I-N-G-L-E  D-A-Y!!!  “Girl,” now “THAT” would surely disallow  MOST of our every-day “CRABBIN'” or “COMPLAINING”…ABOUT OTHERS!!!  If we could just “THANK GOD” for the opportunities to shine His Light and to “HELP” spread His LOVE, PEACE & JOY…in the face of darkness.  Right Here.  RIGHT NOW.  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!

DISTRACTION ALERT!!!  DISTRACTION ALERT!!! 

“WHAT A WONDERFUL WORLD”…

I’m suddenly drawn back to Louis Armstrong’s song, folks.  Oh, how I love, Love, LOVE that beautiful song.  It ALWAYS takes me on a trip to Jill-ville… back in time to the memory of my daughter, Danielle, dancing ballet to that VERY song on stage at R.B. Hunt Elementary school.  Right here in St. Augustine Beach, FL with 3 or 4 other girls…ALL dressed in their little pink “tutu” outfits!!!  🙂  They must have been 6 or 7 years-old at the time.  🙂  🙂

SORRY…for the distraction.  Now, back on topic:

I pray that we can ALL practice…“TOGETHER”…remaining in constant worship of our almighty Lord and Savior.  THANKING HIM for EVERYTHING and allowing us to shine His Light…especially in our darkest-of-moments.  Amen.

“LET THERE BE LIGHT.”  (Genesis 1:3)

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.

 

“WE ARE THE WORLD”

by Michael Jackson.   Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

THE OBSESSION CONTINUES, folks!!!  Yep, I’m listening to this song on “REPLAY”.  It’s only 7:37 am, Friday, 11/25/16, but I am READY to start this day OFF…”RIGHT”.  With some MJ music as I prep my“SELF” to read the Holy Bible.  Thank-you, Jesus.  My heart and mind are both “OPEN” to allow You in…to FULLY engulf me with your presence.  Excuse me, folks.  It is “TIME”…???…???…???… to get my “Jesus-on”…  😉

It is now a bit later (8:24 am)…  “THANK-YOU, JESUS!!!”  You have solidified the topic of discussion for the very next blog post to be written and published later this very day.  AMEN.

Now back to:  “WE ARE THE WORLD.”  Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

I feel certain that this very song has already made an appearance in a post…“WAY”-back-there…“SOMEWHERE”…in the archives of this blog.  Michael Jackson was definitely “BLESSED” with AMAZING talents that have touched the ENTIRE WORLD.  POSITIVELY!!!  Thank-you, Jesus, for the MJ legacy that will survive and thrive…DESPITE Satan’s attempt to dull the loving brightness of Michael’s message with evil darkness.  Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

I’m entering the cheering zone, folks, and gettin’ pretty pumped!  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  Folks, “WE ARE THE WORLD”!!!…”TOGETHER”!!!   DOUBLE WOO-WHOOOOOO, WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!

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

THANKSGIVING DAY, 2016: A TRIBUTE TO MICHAEL JACKSON

“HEAL THE WORLD”

Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

“THERE’S A PLACE  IN YOUR HEART AND I KNOW THAT IT IS LOVE”  (Yep, the tears are welling-up, folks as I listen to this song over, And Over, AND OVER…again, And Again, AND AGAIN with my I-phone set on “RE-PLAY”.  Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

HAPPY THANKSGIVING, 2016, folks!!!  WHAT A DAY!!!  AN AMAZING DAY!!!  Thank-you, Jesus…FOR EVERYTHING.   E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G!!!

I started this Thanksgiving Day, 11/24/16, very, Very, VERY …???…???…???… “THANKFUL”  😉  as I made it to work by 6:30 am to “HELP” teammates along their JOURNEYS from “HERE” to “THERE”…  seeking to :  “HEAL THE WORLD.  MAKE IT A BETTER PLACE FOR YOU AND FOR ME AND THE ENTIRE HUMAN RACE”  (I even played this song via my I-phone for teammates in the OT clinic this morning.  Oh yeah, I’m obsessed, folks!!!  Right Here.  RIGHT NOW!!!)

“TEAM ALLEN”  then enjoyed an AMAZING Thanksgiving dinner down in Palm Coast, FL at Golden Corral…TOGETHER!!!  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  Now spending the rest of the day…“CHILLAXING”.  :/  Oopse!!!  (My daughter just came in our “rental” family room a bit annoyed that I have listened and re-listened to this song at least “50” times, she complained.  :/  :/  I guess she “got” to listen to it as well…ALL “50” times…from over there in the “rental” living room!!!  Sorry, Pooh Bear.)  :/  Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

Yep, I am STILL loving Michael Jackson here at numberoneteam.net.  I’M OBSESSED!!!  With this man’s music and his “LOVE” for people.  ALL PEOPLE.  I do believe Michael saw each and every one of us as “BROTHERS/[SISTERS],” just like the song says.

BAM!!!  My heart is filled with a warmth I canNOT really explain, folks.  “THAT” warmth…???…???…???…is “LOVE”.  AMEN.  Thank-you, Jesus.  We ALL have that space in our hearts folks…it’s called “LOVE”.  GOD.  DOUBLE BAM, BAM!!!

Counting ALL of our blessings…???…???…???… and appreciating MJ’s talents this Thanksgiving Day, 2016.  Thank-you, Jesus for allowing Michael to share his AMAZING God-given-talents with the ENTIRE WORLD along his rather short “JOURNEY” through LIFE from “HERE” to “THERE”.  R.I.P., Michael.  I sure do “HOPE” to see you “THERE”…ONE FINE DAY!!!

AND THANK-YOU, JESUS, FOR EVERYTHING.  E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G!!!  AMEN. 

Feeling a need to close here with:  “HEAL THE WORLD”.  WITH LOVE.  GOD.

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

“MAN IN THE MIRROR”…

by Michael Jackson.  BAM!!!  I am feeling a very, Very, VERY strong connection to this particular song.  Right Here.  RIGHT NOW.  “TRUTH IS”…I heard it on the radio during my drive home from work earlier this evening.  And…???…???…???…I canNOT STOP singing it to my“SELF” inside my own “SELF’S mind, “JILL’S WORLD”!!!  Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

Both eyes filled with tears…IMMEDIATELY…as the song began with:

“I’m gonna make a change, for once in my life
It’s gonna feel real good, gonna make a difference
Gonna make it right.”

WHEW!!!  I’m gettin’ a bit choked-up, folks.  Right Here.  RIGHT NOW.  Wanting to continue on with a slight change in the wording with:

“I’m starting with the [gal] in the mirror
I’m asking [her] to change [her] ways
And no message could have been any clearer
If you wanna make the world a better place
Take a look at yourself and then make a change
(Na na na, na na na, na na, na nah)”

Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

“I”…???…???…???…wanna make the world a better place, folks.  Guess I’ll take a look at my“SELF” and then make a change.  Yep, I’m starting with the gal in the mirror.  I’m asking “ME” to change my ways…

LOVIN’ me some MICHAEL JACKSON.  Right Here.  RIGHT NOW, folks, as I listen to this song on my I-phone over, And Over, AND OVER…again, And Again, AND AGAIN.  ON RE-PLAY…

R.I.P., M.J.

YOU CANNOT HIDE…

your evil intent with laughter.  An occasional laugh embedded with negative thoughts about others does NOT add light to the darkness.  Your way of talking “TRASH” about others may be a little different than hers, his or theirs, but…???…???…???…  IT STILL STINKS, my friend.

Teammates are so, So, SO funny.  Now, “THIS”…???…???…???…is a “TRUE” story, folks.    Please “come” along….  I do invite you to join me on another trip to “JILL’S WORLD”.  It’ll be fun.  I promise.  Now, “Come” with.  “COME“…

THANK-YOU, JESUS!!!  “I”…???…???…???…am chuckling.  Right Here.  RIGHT NOW.  NO KIDDING!!!  Thank-you.  Thank-You.  THANK-YOU, JESUS.  Now I was a bit upset (angry) just yesterday in over-hearing different “discussions,” yet I was able to “HOLD-MY-TONGUE” and NOT respond to the negative office-chatter being spewed from many different angles.  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  “I”…???…???…???…kept my mouth SHUT, folks!!!  DOUBLE WOO-WHOOOOOO, WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  I said nothing!!!  Nothing.  ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!!!  “THEN” (out of anger)…but I am blogging about it “NOW” (out of a sense of understanding, or insight)   😉  There’s a distinct difference, folks.  And I’m blogging to share that difference…“NOW”.  Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

Yep, I was angry in listening to the office chatter yesterday, however was able to NOT say a word prior to vacating that particular area.  WHEW!!!  “ME???…???…???…???… keeping my mouth “SHUT”???  Now, “THAT”…???…???…???…was “DIFFICULT”!!!  I later spoke with a trusted teammate about the specific situation and then shoved “IT” somewhere, DEEP into “Jill-ville,” so-as-to STOP its “STEWING”.  WHEW!!!  THANK-YOU. JESUS!!!

FOLKS…???…???…???…I AM CHUCKLING ABOUT “IT” THIS VERY MORNING!!!  I am!  I Am!!  I AM!!!  “PEEPS” (TEAMMATES)…???…???…???…are so, So, SO blind to their own, personal negative behaviors (sins)…even as they blatantly display the EXACT SAME negative behavior while complaining about “IT” in others!!!  HA!!!  DOUBLE HA, HA!!!     Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

WHEW!!!  “HOLDING MY TONGUE”…???…???…???…was sure a good, Good, GOOD thing…“YESTERDAY”.  😉  I sure “HOPE” that my “TEAMMATES” will “SEE” the humor of this blog post…“TODAY”.  😉  😉

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

“GOD BLESS AMERICA”…

LAND THAT I LOVE

STAND BESIDE HER AND GUIDE HER

THE “RIGHT” TIME

I canNOT tell a lie, folks.  “LIFE”…???…???…???…”IS DIFFICULT!!!”  😉  BAM!!!  HURRICANE…SCHMURRICANE!!!  HA!!!  “AIN’T NOBODY GOT TIME FOR A HURRICANE,” right???  WRONG!!!  DOUBLE BAM, BAM!!!!!!

We (TEAM ALLEN) ARE surviving Hurricane Matthew, folks.  I MUST be brutally honest though:  My husband…???…???…???…is getting on EVERY last nerve of mine!!!  :/  “Please forgive me, Father”. (“HE”(Chris)…???…???…???…is such a “Negative Nancy” anymore!!!  But I LOVE him dearly)  😉

Poor Chris is dealing with ALL the extra “PEEPS,” including ins. adjusters, FEMA reps., bank “tellers”, rental agency “workers”, etc, Etc., ETC., in seeking to survive “MATT” (Pppsssttt…I’m trying to think of Hurricane Matthew as a “friend” of ours, but Chris does NOT view him as such…YET!!!:/ 

NOTE TO CHRIS:  “GOD IS GOOD…ALL THE TIME!!!  ALL THE TIME…GOD IS GOOD!!!”  NO MATTER WHAT!!! 

And in an “ODD”-kind-of-way, God is teaching us to:  “BE HAPPY WHERE YOU ARE”.   NOT…”UNHAPPY” about where you are NOT!!!  “THANK-YOU, JESUS!!!”  We will get back “HOME”…???…???…???…at just “THE RIGHT TIME”.  According to God’s will…NOT our own.

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

JUDGEMENT DAY

WHEW!!!  Things are “HEATING” up across social media, folks.  PLEASE…???…???…???…share your thoughts and opinions in a manner that does NOT encourage the expansion of negative, Hateful. or SATANIC responses…verbally or physically.  “BAD + BAD = MORE BAD,” folks.  THOUGHTS are as sinful as ACTIONS.  (Pppsssttt…I’ve read “some” of the bible and I believe what Pastor Walter says.)  😉

This morning, I am particularly saddened by the continued “HATE” spewed out across social networks by “STRONG” TRUMP supporters.  “SOME”…???…???…???…referring to “GOD” amid their hate-filled messages.  Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

GOD IS “LOVE,” my friends.  PURE LOVE.  For Everybody.  EVERYWHERE.  Despite ALL of our imperfections, faults, and wrong-doings…ON-TOP-OF Each and Every SIN made by EACH and EVERY single human being…E-V-E-R-Y-W-H-E-R-E   I-N   T-H-E   W-O-R-L-D.

I will NOW share a passage I find comfort in amidst the “JUDGEMENTS” being rendered and gaining momentum via social media that “HELPS” or reminds me to NOT judge even those who are currently judging others’ words/actions while excusing their own.  My“SELF” INCLUDED. 

LUKE 6:37

“DO NOT JUDGE, AND YOU WILL NOT BE JUDGED.  DO NOT CONDEMN AND YOU WILL NOT BE CONDEMNED.  FORGIVE, AND YOU WILL BE FORGIVEN.”

Thank you, Jesus.  I pray You speak to ALL of our hearts to “HELP” move us forward on our individual JOURNEYS…from “HERE” to “THERE”.

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

RISING ABOVE…

“HATE” and/or anger-filled “EVIL”.  Hhhmmm (how do I say this gingerly?)…think, Think, THINK…

A song QUICKLY came to mind, folks!!!  “STOP!!!  IN THE NAME OF LOVE [GOD].” And…???…???…???…  “think it oh-over…”. HA!!!  YEP…I’M singing at the top of my voice.  Right Here.  RIGHT NOW…in “Jill-ville!!!  (Soundin’ pretty “GOOD” too @ 7:30 am in the morning.  Just sayin’.)  😉

Yes. I have blogged recently about “MY” disturbance regarding the recent hate-filled protests to the presidential election here in America...LAND OF THE FREE.  BECAUSE OF THE BRAVE!!!  Sadly, I now feel compelled to blog about “MY” disturbance regarding the current hate-filled reactions to those “EVIL” protests, thereby meeting “EVIL…???…???…???…with “EVIL”.  OUCH!!!

AMERICA is a nation that “WAS” founded as “ONE NATION UNDER GOD,” folks.  As disciples, God calls us to share His LOVE and to shine His LIGHT…???…???…???…as a means of showing NON-believers the way.  Hoping they will choose to “FOLLOW JESUS”(NOT MAN).  AMEN.  ALL GLORY BE TO GOD!!!  DOUBLE AMEN, AMEN!!!

There “ARE” both Godly and Satanic manners to represent those feelings, folks.  NO MATTER WHAT THEY ARE.  And many, Many, MANY  more ways in between.  Now remember…God ALLOWS us the FREE-WILL to choose our own paths, folks.  Please choose wisely.  I do “HOPE” to see you “THERE”…ONE FINE DAY.

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