GETTING THE (GENERIC) MESSAGE…

for my“SELF”!!!  BAM!!!  Now, “THIS”…???…???…???…is so, So, SO “CRAZY,” folks!!!  I, (my“SELF”) canNOT believe “IT” (almost)!!!  WHEW!!!  Ya gotta come along on this silly little trip to “JILL’S WORLD”.  I just canNOT make this stuff up!!!  Ya comin’???  COME ALONG…

WHEW!!!  Just yesterday morning I saw a FB post with numerous comments LOADED with “HATE” for the white young man (boy) who went in and shot black people during a church service.  (Oopse…am I allowed to say “white boy” or “black people”???)  :/  “IT IS WHAT IT IS.”  😉

So anyways, I felt inspired to write the previous blog post, “KNOWING THE ENEMY,” as a means of telling those “HATERS” that the shooter was NOT the enemy.  I felt “GOOD” about indirectly telling those “HATERS” (sinners) to recognize the REAL “ENEMY”…SATAN!!!  NOT the “boy,” or young man.  Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

Do NOT be upset with the person.  Do NOT be upset with the person.  Do NOT be upset with ANY person ( human-being)…BAM!!!  And then this AMAZING idea just HIT ME…RIGHT UPSIDE MY HEAD…OUCH!!!  Before bouncing around to hit me SQUARELY between BOTH eyes!!!  DOUBLE OUCH, OUCH!!!  (WHAT???!!!???!!!???!!!  Is “THAT” even possible???!!!???!!!???  HA!!!  Anything is possible in “JILL’S WORLD,” folks!!!)  😉

The previous blog post, “KNOWING THE ENEMY” was inspired by  that church shooting.  a very, Very, VERY specific situation or thought, but the generic version of “IT” (the message) allowed me to apply that very same message to a completely different situation currently faced by “TEAM ALLEN”.  Wah, WAh, WAH… The demo/reno processes of the “ALLEN CASTLE” post Hurricane Matthew.  🙁  

“THINGS HAPPEN.”  (good and bad)

“THINGS DON’T HAPPEN” (good and bad)…

BAM!!!  Our current situation “IS WHAT IT IS”!!!  I am NOT a “HATER”.  I do NOT want to find fault with ANYbody for ANYthing!!!  “TEAM ALLEN” is struggling to stay “POSITIVE”…???…???…???…and “HAPPY” here in Jill, Chris, Danielle, and Chase’s world(s)!!!  :/ 

HA!!!  I, subconsciously wrote a generic blog post about a specific situation that allowed me to apply that very same message to a completely different situation!!!  DOUBLE HA, HA!!!  GOD is so, So, SO GOOD (AND TRICKY)  …ALL THE TIME!!!  😉

Gotta run a quick errand, folks…HAVE A BLESSED DAY!!!

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.

 

 

KNOWING “THE” ENEMY…

and “FIGHTING” the “RIGHT” way.  With the “RIGHT” garb and the “RIGHT” weapons.  With a desire to “SURVIVE… LIFE”.  Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

“THE” ENEMY…???…???…???…is NOT man, folks.  “THE” ENEMY…???…???…???…IS Satan.  And “FIGHTING” the “RIGHT” way is GOD’S way.  NOT man’s.

I strongly believe that we are ALL struggling through this thing called “LIFE” while simply seeking to SURVIVE it.  “SURVIVAL,” folks.  Survival by living.  Survival by dying.  Hhhmmm…”SURVIVAL”…think, Think, THINK…

QUESTION:  Are you living “LIFE” to SURVIVE it or NOT???

“THINK ABOUT IT!!!”  (A tribute to my late brother, Bob.  R.I.P.)

“SURVIVING LIFE”…???…???…???…is NOT for sissies, folks!!!   We must KNOW the “ENEMY”.  And FIGHT to “WIN”…according to His will.  NOT our own.

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.

GETTING LOST IN THE STORM

(Hurricane Matthew).  Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

Hurricane Matthew has been here and gone…3 very, Very, VERY  LONG months ago!!!  I find my“SELF” in that well-known place called “NOTHINGNESS” here in Jill-ville.  I feel…???…???…???…”NOTHING”…inside.  Lord, please “SHOW ME THE WAY TO GO HOME”.

My bible is MIASomewhere…OUT THERE…in the mounds of “STUFF” piled in the garage or in my van.  “TEAM ALLEN” has been thrown (AGAIN) into “THIS,” our 5th different living situation, since early October. 2016, packed FULL of unknowns.  Hoping to get back home “SOON”, yet having no idea “WHEN”.  :/

“I’M TIRED…”

“AND I WANNA GO TO BED…”  (just “VENTING,” folks.  I feel better already!!!)  😉

9:01 a.m., 1/10/17.  I must ready my“SELF” for work now…on this new day that the Lord has made.  “HELP” me, Father, to rejoice and be glad in it.  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.

THE MISSION FIELD

BAM!!!  A discussion at work this a.m.  sparked a brilliant idea, folks.  The discussion revolved around missions-work.  The idea???…???…???…how we ALL should live each and every day as though we’re on a mission.  A constant mission.  On mission for our families at home.  On mission with and for our co-workers.  On mission for our communities.  Our countries.  Our world.

Aaahhhhhh…I like it, folks.  Approaching each new day.  Every situation…the good, the bad and the ugly… with a desire to share the Good News of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior forward with as many teammates as possible!!!

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

Missions work is excellent, folks.  Traveling to disadvantaged locations and/or disaster areas, “HOWEVER”… wouldn’t it be GREAT if we approached each new day the Lord has made as an opportunity to “HELP” those individuals we encounter every single day in every-day-LIFE???

Start your daily  missions work “TODAY,” folks.  At home.  On the job.  In your community.  In “OUR” world.  Oh yeah, I really, Really, REALLY like that idea, folks.

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.
