FACING FEAR…

with confident uncertainty.  CONFIDENT…???…???…???…that I am NOT certain of what lies ahead, but CONFIDENT that I will “HOPE” for the BEST and NOT FRET the WORST.

Well…???…???…???…guess what???  I practiced what I’ve been preaching, folks.  I actually told a teammate she’d be okay as soon she quit CRABBIN’!!!  OUCH!!!  It did NOT go well, folks.  I guess I need to tweek my delivery method.  My “friendlier” method used to confront complainers was met with defensive resolve to inform me that she was NOT “CRABBIN’.  “SHE”…???…???…???…was “DISCUSSING”.  :/  HUH???!!!???!!!???!!!  “DISCUSSING” ONLY the negative expectations =  complaining = “CRABBIN'” in
“MY” book!!!  YOU…???…???…???…were “CRABBIN’, my friend!!!  (Just sayin’)  😉

I Know,  I KNOW…”KEEP PRACTICING, JILL!!!” AND…???…???…???...remember to practice with “LOVE”…NOT “ANGER”.  (Pppsssttt…I MUST admit that “LOVE “ was NOT FULLY IN-THE-AIR I breathed with those words I spoke, folks.)  :/  OUCH!!!  “Forgive Me, Father”.  “TOMORROW…???…???…???…WILL BE BETTER “IF” I AM BLESSED TO LIVE ANOTHER DAY.  I PROMISE.   AMEN.”

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.

 

PRACTICING WHAT I PREACH…

“YOU’LL BE ALRIGHT, JILL.  ONCE YOU QUIT YOUR CRABBIN’!!!”  BAM!!!  Now, I “KNEW”…IMMEDIATELY…that the previous statement of encouragement was absolutely meant for “MY” ears to over-hear during a conversation between 2 very special teammates at work on Saturday, 11-12-16.  I did NOT, however, consider the need to say it to my“SELF” until right “NOW”!!!

“YOU’LL BE ALRIGHT, JILL.  ONCE YOU QUIT YOUR CRABBIN’!!!”  I get it!  I Get It!!  I GET IT!!!  Better today than yesterday.  But not nearly as good as tomorrow.  I need to quit “CRABBIN'” about the current difficulties facing Team Allen post Hurricane Matthew and…???…???…???… COUNT OUR BLESSINGS!!!  AMEN.

GOD IS GOOD…ALL THE TIME!!!  ALL THE TIME…GOD IS GOOD!!!

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

“YOU’LL BE ALRIGHT…”

“ONCE YOU QUIT YOUR CRABBIN’.”

Aaahhhhhh!!!  I love it!  I Love It!!  I LOVE IT!!!  So-much-so…that I even sought permission to blog about it from the very patient who said it at work on Sat., 11/12/16.  Thanks, Johnny B.!!!  BAM!!!  “YOU’LL BE ALRIGHT ONCE YOU QUIT YOUR CRABBIN’ !!!”  DOUBLE BAM, BAM!!!  Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK… 

When asked, Johnny chuckled with admission that his mother used to say that to “HIM” as a child.  I MUST admit I chuckled right along with him…knowing “MY” plan to use that very same phrase FROM NOW ON to discourage complaining. 

I love it!  I Love It!!  I LOVE IT!!!  “YOU’LL BE ALRIGHT ONCE YOU QUIT YOUR CRABBIN’.”  I am so. So, SO excited to begin work on replacing my usual angry demand (“QUIT CHUR COMPLAININ’!!!”) with this “NICE” and encouraging recommendation for teammates to quit “CRABBIN’ “.  😉  I REALLY “DO” want to be nicer in my response to complainers, folks!!!  I do!  I Do!!  I DO!!!  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  SOOOoooooo…

“YOU’LL BE ALRIGHT ONCE YOU QUIT YOUR CRABBIN’,” folks!!!  (Just practicing…)  😉

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

HEALING & SEALING AMERICA…

with “LOVE”(GOD) & “A KISS”.  :/  (OH BOTHER!!!  Now, “THAT” is a GREAT tune from the 70’s…”Sealed With A Kiss” by Bobby Vinton)  :/  (Aaahhhhhh!!!  I canNOT “STOP” singing this tune to my“SELF”…inside my-own-“SELF’s” mind (“JILL’S WORLD”), folks!!!  UGH!!!  But at least I’m sounding pretty “GOOD”!!!  Just sayin’)  😉

GOD IS GOOD…ALL THE TIME!!!  ALL THE TIME…GOD IS GOOD!!!

Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

NOT everyone is “HAPPY” with the recent Presidential Election, folks.  I dislike, VERY MUCH, the violence and displays of evil occurring around this GREAT country, involving the use of Satan’s symbolic weapon:  “F-I-R-E”…to destroy vehicles, buildings and things.  EVEN… American flags have been set “a-fire”!!!   As if to say: “GO TO HELL, AMERICA”!!!  OUCH!!!  (Sorry for the expletive)  :/

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH, peeps!!!  You DO have the RIGHT, here in America, to voice your opposition.  You do NOT, however, have the RIGHT to use “TERROR” or violence to cause injury to others or to destroy someone else’s personal property.  PERIOD!!!  You can DESTROY ALL of your own “STUFF”…”IF”…it makes you feel better to “DESTROY STUFF,” but PLEASE…DO NOT touch other people’s “STUFF”.  You “BREAK” it…???…???…???…you “BUY” it.  Or you “BURN” it…???…???…???…you “BUY” it TOO!!!  Hhhmmm…I think I like that catchy and “CRAZY” slogan, folks:  You BURN it…You BUY it TOO!!!”   

Please “STOP!!! IN THE NAME OF LOVE” (God)!!!  And “JUST SAY NO”…TO ACTS OF TERRORISM!!!  Breaking  windows, stealing, setting “FIRES,” or causing bodily injury to others as a means of expressing/releasing “INNER TURMOIL” is pure EVIL.  “IT” is SATANIC, folks.

In moving on in thought, a dear friend reminds readers of his “DAILY THOUGHTS” via social media that “LOVING” or “HATING”…???…???…???… is a CHOICE that we ALL “GET” to make.  EACH SECOND…of EVERY  MINUTE… of EACH and EVERY HOUR…of EVERY SINGLE DAY…BECAUSE of our “FREE WILL” to do so…HERE IN AMERICA!!!  YEP, WE “GET” TO CHOOSE, folks!!!   Hhhmmm…let us ALL think, Think, THINK… “THIS” one out “TOGETHER”:

“LOVE” vs. “HATE”.  (thinking…)  “GOOD” vs. “BAD”.  (Thinking…)  “GOD” vs. “SATAN”.  (STILL THINKING…)  CHOOSE WISELY, folks.  After all, The “CHOICE”…???…???…???… is “YOURS”!!!  😉

SOOOoooooo, in moving on to yet another NEW thought:  Donald J. Trump “IS” the next president of the USA, folks.  FAIR-N-SQUARE!!!  PLEASE… “TRY” to let go of your anger.  Just… “LET IT GO.  LET IT GO…” and give “IT” to God.  Its actually pretty easy.  “JUST DO IT!!!”  (WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  GO TEAM NIKE’!!!)  Replace your negative thoughts or feelings with positive ones.…CONSCIOUSLY!!!  IT REALLY WORKS, folks.  Our brains tend to “KNOW” or “BELIEVE” that which we keep telling them!!!  I have experienced this “LIFE-CHANGING” phenomena my“SELF”!!!  I did.  I Did.  I DID!!! 

I verbally responded, very LOUDLY with: “I LOVE YOU” (angrily/sarcastically) to a TEAMMATE in response to my anger regarding her constant complaining.  BAM!!!  ALL of my anger was GONE…IMMEDIATELY.  As soon as I said those three magic words:  “I LOVE YOU”!!!  IT REALLY WORKS!!!  “JUST DO IT!!!”  Or at least “TRY”…???…???…???…to consciously replace negative with positive.  Bad with Good.  Hate with “LOVE”.  Satan with GOD.  “JUST TRY,” folks.  You’ve got NOTHING to lose, but the negative, the bad, the Hate of evil, or Satan and DEATH.  And you’ve got EVERYTHING…???…???…???… to gain, such as: the positive, the good,  the pure LOVE of GOD and EVERLASTING LIFE…AFTER death…with our Master and Maker in heaven.  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!! 

And on to a ANOTHER “NEW” thought, folks:  I happened to glance at a political FB post last evening  AND…???…???…???… I am so, So,  SO glad I DID.  LOW-AND-BE-HOLD…I perused numerous replies to a man’s confession about suffering withdrawal symptoms due to the cessation of TRUMP rallies.  :/   WHAT???!!!???!!!???!!!  I am NOT kidding, folks!!!  “TEAMMATES” are actually joking about missing the opportunity to “WITNESS” the HIGH energy and positive enthusiasm associated with President Elect, Trump’s slogan:  “MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!!!”  That positive energy is contagious, folks!!!

BAM!!!  THAT’S IT!!!  We need MORE positive rallies about TRUMP’S plan to “MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!!!”   M-O-R-E  RALLIES  to increase enthusiasm for us ALL to HELP…”MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!!!”  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  Join the “GOODNESS” by JOINING THE TEAM, folks!!!  DOUBLE WOO-WHOOOOOO, WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!

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

ALL GLORY BE TO GOD!!!  AMEN.

 

PLEDGING TO PLUNGE…

“TOGETHER”!!!  Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

I have been struck!!!   RIGHT up-side my head…OUCH!!!  :/  With a “CRAZY” idea to “HELP” advance efforts to “UNITE INDIVIDUALS THROUGH MOTIVATIONAL AND SPIRITUAL TEAM BUILDING IN A MANNER THAT ENCOURAGES P.H.P., folks.   PEOPLE HELPING PEOPLE…???…???…???…TO SURVIVE LIFE”. (Pppsssttt…that’s the “Mission Statement” of numberoneteam.net)  😉 

“PLEDGING TO PLUNGE”???!!!???!!!???!!!  WHAT???!!!???!!!???!!!  “TOGETHER”???!!!???!!!???!!!  Hhhmmm…that sounds a bit…???…???…???…”CRAZY,” but also kind-of “FUN”!!!  Fasten your seat belts, folks, we’re taking another trip to “JILL’S WORLD”.  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!! 

“READY” to take the PLUNGE???  “SET” to make a “PLEDGE”???  Let us go, Go, GO…

Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

“THE PLEDGE OF LOVE”  @ numberoneteam.net:

I pledge to “LOVE” my neighbors.  Everybody.  EVERYWHERE.
Giving the BEST of myself for “JUST” today…“EVERY” day.
Hoping to “HELP” those trapped in the darkness of their pain and suffering.
By sharing God’s LOVE and “LIGHT” to guide precious steps along their “JOURNEYS” through “LIFE”…from “HERE” to “THERE”.  AMEN

GOOD MORNING AMERICA!!!

“This is the day the Lord has made.  Let us rejoice and be glad in it.”  Psalm 118:24

Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

DISTRACTION ALERT!!!  DISTRACTION ALERT!!!  Ssshhhhhh…”UNDERCOVER MOM,” here, JUST captured a  BEAUTIFUL  moment shared between our  children.   Both kids, Danielle(19) and Chase (17) were talking about the 2016 election results in the bathroom this morning while prepping for school.  “THIS” alone was cause enough for celebration to know that they DO care about this AMAZING country.  ON TOP OF “THAT,” however, they were having this conversation to the tune of “HALLELUJAH,” by Pentatonix.  BAM!!!  I could NOT be happier, folks.  Both kids love GOD and “TEAM USA”.  (Pppsssttt…I shared this short video recording via FB.  It is “SHORT”…???…???…???…because I am “ME,” a low-tech. mom who could NOT get the tape rolling when desired.  HA!!!  Another example, folks, of my tendency to be…???…???…???…“TURTLE SLOW”…BUT SURE!!!  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!

DOG-ON-IT!!!  Now I forgot what I was gonna blog about!!!  :/

Praying this morning for “TEAM USA” to “UNITE”…as “ONE”…???…???…???…NATION UNDER GOD.  “THIS”…is “WHO” we are…here in America.

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

THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION, 2016

Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

“LIFE…???…???…???…IS DIFFICULT,” folksThe difficulties faced, however, allow us ample opportunity to shine God’s light.  ESPECIALLY in darkness.  “IF”…???…???…???… we demand positive reactions from ourselves to ALL situations.  ALL THE TIME.  EVERY TIME.  PLEASE REMEMBER:  “GOD IS GOOD…ALL THE TIME!!!  ALL THE TIME…GOD IS GOOD!!!”  No matter what.

I fear what is about to happen…HERE in America, folks.  The results of this Presidential election will, hopefully, be revealed very soon…“MAYBE” tomorrow night!!!  😉  Pending…???…???…???…“COMPLICATIONS”.  I “FEAR”…???…???…???… how “TEAMMATES” will respond to the “OUTCOME” of “THIS” Presidential election???  Regardless of “WHO” is declared the “WINNER”…by “MAN”.  :/

God has sovereign control, folks.  NO MATTER WHAT!!!  I pray that we GOD-FEARING and law-abiding citizens of this AMAZING nation do NOT allow anger(A.K.A.  Satan) to control our reactions to the outcome.  HE (SATAN)…???…???…???… IS LURKING, folks!!!  BEWARE…

I have already begun chanting the cheer to my“SELF” here inside “JILL’S WORLD” folks: “BACK OFF SATAN!!!  MY GOD’S GREATER THAN YOU!!!”  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  “I”…???…???…???…will be fine, EITHER WAY!!!  GOD’S GOT MY BACK!!! DOUBLE WOO-WHOOOOOO, WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!

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

WHAT IF JESUS WERE PRESIDENT…???…???…???

BAM!!!  This weekend’s message delivered by Pastor Walter West at the island campus of Anastasia Baptist Church (ABC)here in St. Augustine, FL was AMAZING!!! No kidding, folks.  “THIS” sermon made me really, Really, REALLY think…R-E-A-L-L-Y!!!  Hhhmmm…STILL thinking, Thinking, THINKING…here @ numberoneteam.net!!!  OUCH!!!  :/

I do NOT have the bulletin readily available for reference, so I will deliver “MY” main take-aways from this evening’s sermon that “MOVED MOUNTAINS” in Jill-ville.  Ready???  OKAY!!! (Sounds like the beginning of another “CHEER” here in “JILL’S WORLD”.  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!)  😉

I must admit that I walked out of church this evening feeling a bit of shame regarding my recent increase of political posts shared via social media.  OUCH!!!  Forgive me, Father.  The message I received tonight is that God wants ALL of us to vote during this presidential election according to our individual callings…as directed by GOD, THE FATHER.  We should ALL:  PRAY ABOUT IT.  And then VOTE…according to His specific will for each of us, individually.  Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

I seem to “SENSE” that endorsing either candidate implies a hidden agenda for which one seeks to influence other voters.  :/  I GET IT, LORD!!!  It is NOT “MY” responsibility to influence ANY votes, what-so-ever!!!  “I”…???…???…???…am responsible for the vote I choose to cast…according to whichever source (God or Satan) I choose to follow.  NO NEED TO ADVERTISE, JILL!!! 

Jesus died as payment for all of man-kinds’ sins.  Republicans, Democrats, and Independents, alike.  😉  BAM!!!  God’s plan includes a means of ensuring ALL sinners have supporters…out there…SOMEWHERE!!!  To “HELP” guide each other in the RIGHT direction.  IT’S PART OF HIS MASTER PLAN, folks.  JESUS DIED FOR EVERY SINGLE ONE OF US!!!  NOW PRAY…AND CAST YOUR VOTE ACCORDINGLY…

GO TEAM USA!!!  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.  (And ALL influencing be left to God, as well!!!)  😉

 

 

CREATING WEAKNESS…

intentionally???  Or unintentionally???  Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

God is love, right?  Love is God.  Do you think its possible to become TOO loving that we become “WEAK”???  Aaahhh…I think I’m heading on in to “JILL’S WORLD,” folks.  I invite you to join me as we begin to accelerate… heading straight to Jill-ville.  Buckle-up.  “THIS”…???…???…???…is sure to be a ROUGH RIDE!!!  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!

There is DEFINITELY a GOOD and BAD side to EVERYTHING.  Even “LOVE”.  The GOOD side is GODLY.  The BAD side is SATANIC.  God’s love is good…ALL the time!!!  Satan disguises his hate or evil intent as love which may feel exciting or good, temporarily, but it is REALLY BAD…ALL THE TIME!!!  Can “YOU” tell the difference???

Folks, I do NOT wish to hurt anybody.  Anywhere.  I do ask, however, that we each examine our own behaviors.  Be honest.  MANY OF US…???…???…???…are being tricked by Satan into “LOVING” so much that we create a weakness that can actually destroy us… as individuals, families, communities, a nation, and even the world.  With ignorance.  Laziness.  Dependence.

Parents, unknowingly, hinder the positive growth and development of children by smothering their autonomy and encouraging dependence…later referred to as a sense of entitlement.  Or by the misguided perceptions of parents in a society that chooses to warp biblical teachings or to completely turn away from God, all-together.  SATAN…???…???…???…encourages tolerance as a means of “LOVE” which is REALLY his crafty plan to keep us separated from God.  GOD…???…???…???…loves & accepts who we are and He then shows us the way…“IF” we so-choose to follow.

A government that controls its people, disguising the control as “LOVE,” through sets of laws demanding certain behaviors despite one’s own convictions based on his or her personal life experiences.  “LIFE EXPERIENCES,” by-the-way, that are MEANT to “HELP” shape who we become via the direction of either God or Satan.  NOT man.  NEWS-FLASH!!!  NEWS-FLASH:  Our Government is NOT our God, folks.  The pure EVIL threatening to destroy “AMERICA”…???…???…???…is SATANIC!!!  And that pure evil is destroying us from within our selves, our families, our communities, our country, our world.  A.K.A.:  OUR “TEAMS”.

STAND-UP, STAND-UP “TEAM USA”!!!  BE STRONG.  IT’S TIME…???…???…???…TO MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!!!   😉

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

P.H.P., folks.  People Helping People.

GOD’S GOODNESS…

Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

I awoke this morning in a “GOOD” place…or-so-I-thought and soon realized that I had been struck right upside my head with a “CRAZY” idea, folks.  OUCH!!!  An idea about GOD’S GOODNESS…and MANS’ SELFISHNESS.  Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

So, I began this very blog post with an intro. that I just deleted and replaced with the above paragraph, opting to keep the following:

“We…???…???…???… are a selfish people.  Fooled into believing Satanic perceptions of what is “GOOD”…for ourselves.  DESPITE the obvious harm to others.  GOD IS GOOD…ALL THE TIME, folks.  “IF”…???…???…???… a negative thought is entertained as justification for benefit to one’s “SELF” with knowledge or intent of harming others, then it is SATANIC.  PERIOD!!!”

I then stopped writing after completion of the above paragraph and made my way to work, punching in at 10:22 a.m.  Aaahhhhhh!!!  Could “THIS” post have “SET-THE-
TONE” of my actual work-day???  The “CHAOS”…???…???…???…WAS EVERYWHERE!!!  Complainers complaining over “HERE” and more complainers complaining over “THERE”!!!  Aaahhhhhh!!!  There were complainers complaining “EVERYWHERE”!!!  “THIS,” I exclaimed,  “is EXACTLY why I arrive late and work so late on Mon-Wed., and why I choose to work weekends…ALONE IN REHAB.!!!  TO AVOID THIS CHAOS”!!!  :/

I, regretfully, ranted-and-raved for about 10-15 mins. about the hateful, uncaring and selfish nature of co-workers.  I made certain that all teammates within ear-shot heard these harshly-intended words in closing:  “YOUR TRUE COLORS EVENTUALLY REVEAL THEMSELVES!!!”  :/  Forgive me, Father.  ALL of my words were spoken in anger during the entire “RANT”.  🙁  BUT…???…???…???…

Thank-you, Jesus, for sending an angel to “HELP” guide my actions and words during this “DIFFICULT” situation.  This “ANGEL,” my co-worker and trusted “TEAMMATE,” called me aside and advised that I NOT allow the “BAD” to result in my total blindness to the “GOOD”.  BAM!!!  And I could feel the flow of God’s GOODNESS and LOVE wash away EVERY BIT of negative energy within me.  IMMEDIATELY!!!  THANKS!!!  And I LOVE YOU, Cath!!!  😉

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

P.H.P., folks.  People Helping People.
