“TAKE” #2…

of the “SAME” idea…viewed from a different angle, or point.

BAM!!!  Now, “THIS” is EXACTLY what I was speaking about in the previous blog post!!!  YOU HAVE GOT…to come along on this next little “JOURNEY,” folks.  Yep, another “JOURNEY” into “JILL’S WORLD”!!!  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  READY???  OKAY!!!  (Yep, I’m  startin’ this one off like a “CHEER”)

DOUBLE BAM, BAM!!!  I had JUST published the previous post and then decided to hop on over to FB…REAL quick to peruse what’s on folks’ minds…before starting my day…here at 12 pm, ET!!!  :/  (Thurs./Fri. is “MY” weekend, folks!!!)  Hhhmmm…peruse, peruse, peruse…OUCH!!! 

DOUBLE OUCH, OUCH!!!  I did NOT mean ANYthing “BAD” by sharing a post that supported the requirement for photo id’s in order to vote.  I had NOT even considered the implications of, perhaps, excluding the “POOR” from voting secondary to their financial inability to afford having a photo id.

I was NOT- in any way, shape, or form- considering finances of anyone, ie:  people paying for their own id or perhaps even adding another tax, special, to pay for poor people’s photo id’s.  I, simply, AGREE with “NEEDING” one.

Folks, some of my FaceBook friends quickly jumped to point out that this would be another financial means of discluding “POOR” or disadvantaged teammates from having a voice.  I, DEFINITELY, do NOT mean to exclude ANYone.  AND, I feel certain that if asked…???…???…???…those  friends  annoyed by needing a photo id to vote  would also AGREE that photo id’s would “HELP” reduce voter fraud.  BAM!!!  WE AGREE.  WE ARE JUST LOOKING AT THE SAME SITUATION FROM DIFFERENT ANGLES.  DOUBLE BAM, BAM!!!

THANK-YOU, my friend, for opening my eyes.  I had NOT considered the different angles of this topic to be viewed.

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.

 

LIKING WHAT I…???…???…???

“FEEL”.  BAM!!!  “I”…???…???…???…am a DIFFERENT person, folks.  “DIFFERENT”… than I used to be.  Thank-you, Jesus.

The inner peace and calmness I feel is nothing short of AMAZING, folks.  DESPITE “TEAM ALLEN’S” current “DIFFICULTIES”.  “I”…???…???…???…am “OKAY,” folks.  “WE” (TEAM ALLEN)…???…???…???…are gonna be “OKAY”.  I JUST KNOW IT!!!  Don’t ask me, “HOW I KNOW,”  just KNOW…???…???…???…THAT “I KNOW”!!!  😉

I NO LONGER…feel a need to “FIGHT,” angrily.  I NO LONGER…lash back at folks with hurtful words that ONLY intensify our disagreements or misunderstandings.  (Well, maybe I DO lash, or fight, back every now-and-again out of anger.  I’m a work in progress, folks)  😉  

EVERYBODY sees things from their own distinct and VERY unique POINTS-OF-VIEW.  Thank-you, Jesus, that I have NOT struggled through other teammates’ experiences (DIFFICULTIES) to REALLY KNOW how I might respond my“SELF”.  And Thank-you, Jesus, for allowing my autonomy to determine my own PATH, yet ALWAYS seeking to guide me through those difficulties I HAVE experienced.

Forgive me, Father.  I’m a SLOW learner.  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  I may be “TURTLE SLOW,” but I am ALSO “TURTLE STEADY”. (Aaahhhhhh…The  previous description of my Spiritual growth… R-E-T-U-R-N-S!!!AND WE ALL KNOW…
“THE TURTLE  A-L-W-A-Y-S  WINS THE RACE!!!”  DOUBLE WOO-WHOOOOOO, WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!

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

“KEEP CALM”…

“AND TRUST GOD”.  BAM!!!  THANKS, JO!!!  For this AMAZING Christmas gift, 2016: a small, fancy card box filled with “a collection of inspiring Scripture verses and quotes to help carry you through tough [DIFFICULT] and challenging times.” By Christian Art Gifts.  DOUBLE BAM, BAM!!!  (I, sadly, do NOT know where the book-an additional gift- is that discusses handling those situations when other peeps (teammates/complainers) threaten to disrupt “MY” FAITH.  I pray that I will find it somewhere…out there…amidst the piles of “STUFF” in this rental garage upon our return home…ONE FINE DAY.)  😉 

“KEEP CALM AND TRUST GOD” is written on one card of this 101 card collection.  The back states:  “The Lord says, “I will guide you along the best pathway for your life.  I will advise you and watch over you.”   Ps. 32:8″

AMEN.  And Thank-you, Jesus.  I really, Really, REALLY… NEED YOU NOW!!!

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