:/ JUST ANOTHER DAY…???…???…???

in “JILL’S WORLD”!!!  Mon. 2/27/17.  I simply canNOT make this stuff up, folks!!!  I invite you to come along on yet ANOTHER trip to “Jill-ville” as I MUST admit…???…???…???…”OOPSE, I DID IT AGAIN!!!”  (Britney Spears…in her younger years.  Pppsssttt…I JUST made that little rhyme up.  Right Here.  RIGHT NOW!!!  In “Jill-igan”.  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!! 😉

It is MUCH too “CRAZY” to explain it ALL, BUT I ended up making it to a pro President Trump rally in Downtown St. Augustine, FL  on Mon, 2/27/17.  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  Kinda…  :/

I knew the rally was set to start at 12:00 noon.  I KNEW that.  And I thought it might be an afternoon-type event, so I had originally planned to go, thereby scheduling my day (in MY mind) to come and go from work as needed.

Mon. a.m.???…???…???…I decided NOT to go to the rally since we were too busy at work (Pppssttt… I was TOO tired to get up and go to work early), so I ran my usual week-day morning routine and arrived to work ~ 10:30 a.m.  ONLY…to discover that my day had been unexpectedly shortened due to the hospitalization of a patient.  Hhhmmm…it ONLY took 1 SHORT second for me to change my plans…AGAIN…and decide that I would attend the rally AFTER ALL!!!  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!

I decided to work 2 hrs. and then head to the rally.  I got there about 12:45 pm, paid $12.00 at the parking garage and raced over to the fort handing out “JILL ALLEN for PRESIDENT @ numberoneteam.net” buttons along my short walk to the Castillo De San Marco fort.  (The buttons were ALL I had in the van)  🙁

WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  I made it over to the fort…JUST as folks were starting to walk AWAY!!!  WHAT???!!!???!!!???  I quickly STOPPED a couple and they informed me that the rally started at 12 noon and it JUST finished.  ARE YOU KIDDING ME???!!!???!!!???!!!  OH NO!!!PLEASE SAY IT ISN’T SO!!!  :/ 

I JUST paid $12.00 to park for 15 min.???  Well, I was determined to get my money’s worth!!!  So, I mixed and mingled with folks in the dispersing crowd for a few moments and then…???…???…???…went back to work!!!  :/    OUCH!!!  Yep, I paid $12:00 to park for a rally that JUST ended as I arrived!!!???!!!???!!!  OH NO, PLEASE SAY IT ISN’T SO!!!  AND BACK TO WORK I HAD TO GO…   😉 

DID meet an “IMPORTANT” fella while I mixed & mingled with the dispersing crowd, though.  Ed Dean from WBOB,  AM 600 radio in Jacksonville, FL.  Host of the Ed Dean Show.  Yep, I asked him to mention the blog at numberoneteam.net on his talk show.  ( Pppsssttt… I think I EVEN asked to be  “O-N”  his radio show!!!  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  Not real sure, though.  I was too “CRAZY” excited about the “possibilities” to really know or remember exactly what I said at that spur-of-the-moment opportune time.  Right There.  RIGHT THEN!!!)  Hhhmmm…”FLIGHTY JILL”…???…???…???…STRUCK AGAIN, folks!!!  :/

HEY…I think I’ll go out and get his business card in the van.  Right Here.  RIGHT NOW.  And send him a quick e-mail.  It sure can’t hurt to explore opportunities to “HELP” share this message of:  “Spiritual and motivational team building in a manner that encourages P.H.P., folks.  People Helping People…to survive “LIFE”. ” Please say a prayer, folks.  GOD’S WILL BE DONE…

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

P.H.P., folks.  People Helping People…to survive “LIFE”.

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

ALL GLORY BE TO GOD!!!  AMEN.    

 

STANDING FIRM…

in FAITH & LOVE (God)…???…???…???…is a BEAUTIFUL thing.  LASHING OUT in ANGER & HATE (Satan) is just plain “UGLY”.  Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

Thank-you, Jesus!!!  Do NOT ask me “HOW” I know it, folks, but I am 100% CERTAIN that “TEAM ALLEN” is gonna survive Hurricane Matthew.   A-N-D…come out “WAY” better than before.   “W-A-Y!!!”

I pray to continue moving forward…into March, 2017… with a sense of  “HOPE” (Heaven Over-Powering Earth) for the renovation of our HOME that will allow “TEAM ALLEN” to stand firm in FAITH & LOVE (God) against the “UGLINESS” of evil (Satan).

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.

SLOWING DOWN…

in FULL-SPEED-AHEAD mode to enjoy my ride through “LIFE”.  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  (WHAT???!!!???!!!???!!!  “SLOWING DOWN”…???…???…???…in  “FULL-SPEED-AHEAD” mode???  That doesn’t even make sense???  I guess we’re takin’ another “TRIP” on into “JILL’S WORLD,” folks.  😉  YA BETTER BUCKLE-UP!!!)  😉  😉

Now, I am NOT kidding, folks!!!  “LIFE”…???…???…???…could NOT be ANY better than it is.  Right Here.  RIGHT NOW!!!  (DESPITE…losing our home (and MOST everything in it ) to Hurricane Matthew back in Oct. 2016.)  “STILL”…???…???…???…NOT KIDDING, folks!!!

I get so, So, SO “FIRED-UP” about “LIFE” these days.   “TEAMMATES” everywhere get to listen to my “CRAZY” testimonies.  NO KIDDING, folks.  I, sometimes (MANY TIMES), canNOT believe I will go “THERE” from “HERE”… with almost ANYbody…whoever’s around at any given moment.  ANY PLACE. ANYWHERE.  Yep…“THAT” is what I do, folks.   :/  Testifying.  Talking.  And smiling as I continue moving forward, pressing merrily beyond the “DANGER ZONE”…in a COMPLETE state of…???…???…???… “FLIGHTINESS”!!!  Right Here.  RIGHT NOW.  In “JILL’S WORLD”.  :/  :/  COMPLETELY OBLIVIOUS…to political correctness.  :/  :/  :/  Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

I recently…AGAIN…found my“SELF” excited to be driving to work in a COMPLETE STATE of “JOY,” noting how everything seemed to be moving in “slow motion” as I drove…MERRILY ALONG.  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  WOW!!!  THANK-YOU, JESUS!!! (STILL remember ALWAYS being in hurry, Hurry, HURRY-UP mode to get “SOME”where…other than “RIGHT HERE,” folks.  Yep, I was always rushing to get to the next place of need or desire.  And I drove FAST to get there, too!!!  🙁  UNTIL…”CHRISTOPHER B. ALLEN”.  He was my VERY first experience of being TOTALLY happy where I was.  NOT wanting to leave the moment I was in…with him.  THANK-YOU, JESUS!!!)

So anyways, I arrived at work one day last week… AFTER my excited, “SLOW-MOTION,” drive to get there!!!  Now, “I”…???…???…???…was COMPLETELYHIGH on “LIFE” that day and began “TESTIFYING” to Everybody.  EVERYWHERE!!! (Even a teammate from our corporate office who just happened to be at MCNRC that particular day.)  :/    Now, “I” was sure psyched-up that day!!!  And so, So, SO “PUMPED” about “LIFE”.  Right Then.  RIGHT THERE.  Right Here.  RIGHT NOW.  In “THIS” moment.  “THAT” moment.  And almost every moment in between.  DESPITE ALL THE CHAOS.  Right Then.  RIGHT THERE.  Here and  There.   ABSOLUTELY EVERYWHERE!!!  :/

“LIFE IS DIFFICULT”.  And the road is turbulent.  PLEASE…”SLOW DOWN.  TAKE IT EASY” and just…???…???…???…Put your hand in the hand of The Man who built the waters…”  😉  Yep, I’m singin’ a couple ole’ tunes to my“SELF,” folks.  Inside my-own-“SELF’s” mind, “JILL’S WORLD”.  And I’m soundin’ pretty GOOD, too!!!  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  Just sayin’.  😉

Just finishing this blog post I started a few days ago (2/25) to share with you…on this new day the Lord has made (2/27).  Let us 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.

 

 

 

ROLLING WITH THE TIDES…

of “CHANGE”.   Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

THE WORLD IS A DIFFERENT PLACE, my friends.  QUITE DIFFERENT THAN IT USED TO BE.  TIMES ARE TOUGH, in  “DIFFERENT” ways.  But “LIFE IS DIFFICULT”…STILL!!! 

I absolutely love, Love, LOVE the immigrants that first traveled to, discovered and settled here…IN AMERICA!!!  Yep, those were MY, YOUR, HIS, HER, AND THEIR ancestors, TOO!!!  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!

Thank-you, Jesus, for those brave men and women who paved the way…for “US” today.  Yep, it’s a DIFFERENT world today, my friends.  According to GOD’S “PLAN”.  The times have changed.  And people too.  What “WAS”…???…???…???…no longer “IS”. 

It’s an admirable thing to HOLD onto the appreciation of our ancestors who took the “risks” and fought the “fights” to get us “HERE” from “THERE”.  May we tuck that love into the depths of our hearts and souls.  WELL AWARE:   we MUST continue to “ROLL WITH THE TIDES…” of change, my friends.  GOD’S WAY.  NOT OUR OWN…  

YEP, IT IS OUR TURN TO SHINE GOD’S LIGHT, fellow warriors.  To light the different pathways along our individual “JOURNEYS” from “HERE”… to “THERE”.  AND…

I sure do “HOPE” (Heaven Over-Powering Earth) to “SEE” you “THERE”…ONE FINE DAY.  AMEN.

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

P.H.P., folks.  People Helping People …to survive “LIFE”.

ALL GLORY BE TO GOD!!!  AMEN.

TO BUILD…

OR NOT TO BUILD???…???…???…”THE WALL”.  Hhhmmm, think, Think, THINK…   

I WANNA  S-C-R-E-A-M:   “S-T-O-P   T-H-E   H-A-T-E!!!”  Folks, we do NOT “HATE” one another.  We ALL know that illegal immigration is a problem.  We ALL want the problem fixed, Right???  RIGHT!!!  So “WHY,” pray-tell…are we arguing over something we agree on???  Why???  WHY???  W-H-Y???  I just doNOT “GET” that.  (Pppsssttt…perhaps “SOME” teammates just need to complain…even though we agree)  I DUNNO.  :/

Just the other day a teammate reported, ANGRILY, that she does NOT want to pay for building that wall!!!  WHAT???  You mean the wall that would “HELP” keep terrorists “OUT”???   The wall that would “HELP” us to “VET” those folks who want to enter our GREAT country…”LEGALLY”???  Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

I thought to my“SELF”:  SELF, …???…???…???…  why-then-oh-why…is she NOT upset about currently supporting illegal immigrants’ lifestyles via our tax dollars???  “IF”…???…???…???…she just doesn’t want to pay for “THE WALL”???  Couldn’t we use the money saved from supporting their “AMERICAN DREAMS” to “HELP” build “THE WALL”???  AND THEN…we can all welcome them here with open arms, feeling a bit more assured that they are probably NOT here to KILL us.  “PROBABLY.”  ???  :/

“STOP THE HATE,” folks!!!  Satan is behind those angry thoughts and feelings.  SATAN…???…???…???…is ENEMY #1!!!  NOT MAN!!!  And Satan is seeking to ignite our frustrations into HATE-FILLED and EVIL actions.

GARB-UP, Christian warriors.  LET US “HELP” our soldiers in uniform to FIGHT AGAINST the EVIL OF THE WORLD (SATAN) with LOVE (GOD).  As we are each called differently by our Father, who art in Heaven…  Hallowed be thy name.  😉

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

P.H.P., folks.  People Helping People…to survive “LIFE”.

Give the BEST of yourself for “JUST” today…”EVERY” day!!!  (Pppsssttt…OUCH.  I had a not-so-good day today, folks.  BUT that’s okay…???…???…???… Jesus loves me anyway!!!)  😉  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!! 

ALL GLORY BE TO GOD!!!  AMEN.

 

GETTING FIT WITH DANETTE!!!

“DANETTE MAY”…LIVE…on FaceBook!!!  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!! (And You-tube)

HA!!!  I may NOT be getting myself “FIT,” but I ABSOLUTELY love, Love, LOVE watching this girl’s passion for what she does!!!  From mixing nutritious drinks to coaching and demonstrating multiple muscle exercises to giving those much-needed pep talks, etc. Etc., ETC!!!  BAM!!!  I LOVE DANETTE MAY!!!

Her Elevated (HIGH) Energy, Ginormous Gestures, Peppy Personality and Fantastic Figure are a HUGE HIT!!!  SHE’S FAMOUS!!!  CHECK HER OUT, folks:  “DANETTE MAY,” (Pppsssttt…I’m already FB friends with her, just sayin’.)  😉 

Go ahead and start your fitness plan, folks!!!  I’m “WAITING” to “START” my fitness plan  😉  until we, “TEAM ALLEN,” return home AFTER being “BLESSED” by Hurricane Matthew back in Oct., 2016…and “THEN”…???…???…???… I’ll be able to “FOCUS” on “GETTING FIT  WITH DANETTE!!!” 😉

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

D.H.P., folks.  Danette Helping People…to survive “LIFE”.

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

ALL GLORY BE TO GOD!!!  AMEN.

 

:( —–> :)

FLIP your frown into a smile, folks.  Turn a negative into a positive…and try to enjoy the “LIFE” you’ve been blessed to “LIVE”.  PLEASE…MAKE A “POSITIVE” DIFFERENCE…for Everybody.  EVERYWHERE!!!

T-H-A-N-K   Y-O-U,  J-E-S-U-S!!!  BAM!!!  I am so excited…I canNOT stand it!!!  A few moments ago, I started this blog post with “I am saddened…AGAIN!!!  🙁 ”  HUH???  STOP IT, JILL!!!  I quickly deleted that sentence and hollered:  “BACK OFF, SATAN!!!  MY GOD’S GREATER THAN YOU!!!”  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  And then I re-started this post with the above PRAISE:
“T-H-A-N-K   Y-O-U,  J-E-S-U-S!!!” And I am suddenly so, So, SO excited that I canNOT hardly stand it, folks!!!)  😉 

I went out to get a drink in the kitchen earlier and then sat down on the sofa-sectional near my husband.  BUT…I could ONLY stand 1 moment of the news my husband was listening to.   1 [O-N-E] MOMENT of the actual news being reported…in “OUR WORLD”…TODAY!!!

Aaahhhhhh!!!  TEAMMATES OUT THERE ARE so, So, SO NEGATIVE!!!  Now, “I” was proud as President Trump spoke of hard-working folks building America…ONLY to be quickly angered (Forgive me, Father) by a “BLACK” female news reporter stating that President Trump said  “WHITE” folks built America!!!  WHAT???!!!???!!!???!!!  ARE YOU KIDDING ME???  HE DIDN’T SAY THAT AT ALL, Miss News Reporter LADY!!!  (Still working on getting over my anger, Father) Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

T-H-A-N-K   Y-O-U,  J-E-S-U-S!!!  The negativity in my heart has now been replaced with “LOVE”/GOD.  AMEN.

Let us ALL pray for our news media to replace the negative anger and hate in their hearts with positive HOPE (Heaven Over-Powering Earth) and LOVE/GOD.  JESUS DIED FOR EVERYBODY.  EVERYWHERE!!!  Black, brown, yellow, purple,  green, white, etc., Etc., ETC…

The words that come out of our mouths are more representative of ourselves, folks.  President Trump did NOT say that “white” people built America, but that is what the “black” news reporter thought he meant by what he said.  IT IS WHAT IT IS, folks.  And EVERY-BODY thinks “IT”…???…???…???…means something a little-bit different than the next “BODY”.  So, who is RIGHT???  And does it EVEN matter???  Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

I, TOO, am guilty of applying added meaning to what others say…in my every-day “LIFE”.  Aren’t we ALL???  The boss-lady said “THIS,” but I just KNOW she REALLY meant “THAT”.  OUCH!!!  I am GUILTY, as charged!!!  Forgive me, Father.

**We can ALL apply a positive meaning to the exact same negative thought in order to flip a  🙁  into a   🙂   , 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.

 

 

SAVORING GOODNESS…

to the point of “GREATNESS”.  Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

BAM!!!  I AM GUILTY, folks.  GUILTY…of seeking to improve upon the “GOODNESS” of “THINGS” (events, situations, relationships, etc.) , unwittingly destroying the “GOOD” in a misguided search for “GREAT”.  OUCH!!!    

THANK-YOU, JESUS.  I  am learning EVERY DAY… to be overjoyed with the intrinsic “GOODNESS” of “THINGS” which in turn allows their Independent maturity into GREATNESS.  According to His will.  NOT mine.

IT’S QUITE AMAZING, folks.  “AMAZING GRACE.”  To enjoy what is…as is…to the point of its  ultimate morphosis…  NO pushing or pulling necessary to get “THERE” from “HERE”.  😉 

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.

        

LOSING MY WAY…

AGAIN!!!  🙁  UGH…”LIFE IS DIFFICULT,” folks.  I am so, So, SO aware that I need Jesus in every second of every moment of every hour of EVERY SINGLE DAY!!!  GOD IS GOOD…ALL THE TIME!!!  ALL THE TIME…GOD IS GOOD!!!

Satan, on the other hand, lurks amidst the BEST-of-the-BEST times, the WORST-of-the-WORST times and EVERY OTHER time in between.  “SATAN IS BAD…ALL THE TIME!!!  ALL THE TIME…SATAN IS BAD!!!

I am amazed at how difficult it can be to discern between the two in application to daily life situations/events.  “GOD IS GOOD…ALL THE TIME!!!  ALL THE TIME…GOD IS GOOD!!!”  Now, “THAT” sounds pretty easy to detect.  And:  “SATAN IS BAD…ALL THE TIME!!!  ALL THE TIME…SATAN IS BAD!!!”  Ah-HA!!!  EASY-PEEZY.  Right???!!!???!!!???!!!  WRONG!!!

Satan is the master of DECEIT, folks.   Thank-you, Lord, for those subtle signs of…???…???…???…”discomfort”…as I begin to stray out of Your light into the darkness.  And forgive me, Father, for momentarily letting go of Your hand, thereby “LOSING MY WAY…AGAIN”.

And so…the “JOURNEY” continues…

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.

“A-L-L”… GLORY BE TO GOD!!!  AMEN.  

THE “DIS”…

of “AGREE”.  Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

Times are tough, folks.  “LIFE IS DIFFICULT.”  For Everybody.  EVERYWHERE.  I find it a bit “CRAZY” how MOST Americans can AGREE on specific points regarding MOST “ISSUES,” yet we CONTINUE standing FIRM to FIGHT over different angles of “AGREEMENT” in manners of “DIS”AGREEMENT.

KEEP THINGS SIMPLE, folks:  GOD IS GOOD…ALL THE TIME!!!  ALL THE TIME…GOD IS GOOD!!!  SATAN IS BAD…ALL THE TIME!!!  ALL THE TIME…SATAN IS BAD!!!  PERIOD!!! 

Hhhmmm…”DIS” = negative, folks.  BAD + BAD = MORE BAD.  It is time to STOP focusing on opposite points of agreement in order to create “DIS”agreement among teammates.

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.
