THE FIGHTS AND RIDES OF LIFE

Boy, the punches just keep on comin’.  And Comin’.  AND COMIN’.  Don’t they???  Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

My thoughts are currently with my cousin, Marsha, who just messaged me to ask how “TEAM ALLEN” is doing in our “FIGHT” to survive Hurricane Matthew.  Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

BAM!!!  Now, “MARSHA”…???…???…???…is staying strong and “fighting” His way…”THROUGH IT ALL”.  Despite currently battling  cancer for over a year; struggling through her son’s recent MVA (motor vehicle accident) which was quickly followed by the death of her mother(my aunt, Barb)… which makes me think of the “RIDE” her whole “LIFE” has been.  Then add in the up-swing of her recent marriage to a wonderful man…somewhere in that boxing-ring-of-“LIFE”.  Yep, now she’s a “FIGHTER,” alright.  AND…a “RIDER”  😉  I LOVE YOU, MARSHA!!! 

I am now considering the fights and rides “I’ve” been on while simply seeking to survive this thing called my “LIFE”.  UGH!!!  Nope, I sure wouldn’t want to go through ALL that again…just to get where I am today!!!  “THANK-YOU, JESUS”…I could NOT have survived this “LIFE” without You!!!

Folks, I invite you to take a few moments and reflect on your “LIFE”.  What a “RIDE,” huh???  I “HOPE” you keep fighting to win…”HIS” way.  Not your own!!!  And remember:  Surviving “LIFE”…???…???…???…ain’t for sissies, folks!!!

BAM!!!  WAKE-UP AMERICA!!!  And…”STAND-UP, STAND-UP FOR JESUS!!!” (Another tune…)  😉 

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. 

THE RIDE OF YOUR LIFE

BAM!!!  The ups, downs, twists, turns and “loop-di-loops” associated with just living “LIFE” are enough to make me completely nauseous, folks!!!  Sometimes I just wanna scream…”GET ME OFF THIS RIDE”!!!  Until…I remember that God is in the seat RIGHT beside me.  Holding my hand.  And giving me strength when I am weak.   Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

God is good…All the time All the time…God is good

God Is Good…All The Time!!  All The Time…God Is Good!!

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

(Pppsssttt…I just repeated that phrase to my“SELF” here in Jill-ville (my mind) 3 times.  With a bit more conviction EACH time.  WHEW!!!  Thank-you, Jesus.  I sure needed to hear that.  Right Here.  RIGHT NOW.   “LIFE”…???…???…???… has definitely been a bit “DIFFICULT” for “TEAM ALLEN” after Hurricane Matthew dropped into our home for a quick visit back in early October, 2016.)  🙁 

Folks, I do NOT know where “YOU” are on  your ride of “LIFE,” but I do HOPE (Heaven Over-Powering Earth) you will hang-on tight and remember, no matter where you are NOW:

“THE BEST IS YET TO COME!!!”

Just “HANG ON [Sloopy] to Jesus’ hand…AND ENJOY THE RIDE!!!  (Yep, I’m singin’ that ‘ole 1965 tune by The McCoys to my“SELF” inside my-own-“SELF’S” mind (Jill-ville).  And soundin’ pretty good too.  Just sayin’!!!)  😉 

GO TEAM!!!  WE’RE ALL HANGIN’-IN-THERE…TOGETHER!!!

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

Give the BEST of yourself for “JUST” today…”EVERY” day!!!

ALL GLORY BE TO GOD!!!  AMEN.
