FREEDOM FIGHTERS

Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

I am trying HARD to “OPEN” my mind to the opposing views of the “FREEDOM” we think we enjoy in this GREAT country, the United States of America.  “IT” (FREEDOM) means something different to Everybody.  EVERYWHERE.  Depending on what we, ourselves, want to think, feel or believe it “SHOULD” represent.   Sad…but true…

Many “TEAMMATES”  can take the truth and twist it or turn it into something to be angry about.  Hhhmmm…sound familiar???  People getting angered by the truth (the Truth/God’s word)???

GOD IS GOOD…ALL THE TIME, folks.  When anger gets intermingled with truth???  Satan is involved.  On Each and EVERY side of Each and EVERY issue.

TRUTH IS:  “OPPRESSION” is STILL ALIVE…here in America.  On BOTH ” sides-of-the-isle,” so-to-speak.  :/  Speakers being denied opportunities to express their views on college campuses via physical/property ruin.  NFL Players being denied the opportunity to express their views on the sidelines via financial ruin.  BAM!!!  2 very-quick examples that depict the hypocrisy of BOTH sides.  TODAY…HERE IN AMERICA!!!

GOOD vs. BAD.  LOVE vs. HATE.  GOD vs. SATAN.  THE BATTLE RAGES ON…gaining intensity along the way.  (Hhhmmm…just as the bible says it will…UNTIL THE END.)

Choose your “TEAM” wisely.  And remember:  We may be called to represent different earthly “TEAMS” as per God’s will.  THE QUESTION???  Whose “RULE BOOK” will we choose to “PLAY” by???

GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!

GO TEAM USA!!!  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.

 

REPS + DEMS

REPUBLICANS = AMERICANS.

DEMOCRATS = AMERICANS.

Hhhmmm…I’m a lot bit Republican.  There’s quite a bit of Democrat in me too.  I like HELPING people.  ALL people.  In EVERY little thing I do.

Hhhmmm…I am DEFINITELY a Christian FIRST, folks.  Above politics.  Above Democrats.  Above Republicans too.

May God Bless America.  And you.  And You.  AND YOU!!!

GO TEAM USA!!!  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.

LIFE IS SURE DIFFICULT!!!

UGH!!!  LIFE WOULD SURE BE EASIER IF WE JUST DIDN’T HAVE TO DEAL WITH OTHER PEOPLE!!!  🙁  –>  :/  –>  😉  –>  🙂     (my emotions have run through the above sequence, folks:  sad -> to confused -> to “okay” -> to now HAPPY!!!  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!)
“IT IS WHAT IT IS!!!”  😉

Now, I KNOW we ALL heard the same spoken words.  Yet, we were unable to agree on what was “REALLY” meant by what was ACTUALLY said.  :/  I simply canNOT make this stuff up, folks!!!  Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

Yep, we ALL sat there listening with open ears.  We heard the same spoken words, yet we came away with different interpretations of what those spoken words REALLY meant!!!  UGH!!!  🙁  Now, I admit I may not be the brightest bulb on your string of Christmas lights.  :/  And I may NOT be the sharpest cheese in your fridge, either.  :/  :/  But, I generally choose to give folks the benefit-of-the-doubt in MOST situations.  I like to think positive.  And I generally believe MOST people say what they mean and mean what they say.  Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

“POLYANNA”…Eeeccckkk!!!  There’s that name AGAIN!!!  I remember a former co-worker, Steve, used to call me “Pollyanna”.  At least 14+ years ago!!!  I believe I was slightly offended by that name back then as I thought it meant that I was gullible, flighty (which I have now embraced), or STUPID (which I have now erased from my vocabulary).  THANK-YOU, JESUS!!! 

I actually google-searched that name, “Polyanna,” folks.  And this is what I found:

pol-ly-an-na
noun
an excessively cheerful or optimistic person

“Jillyanna.”  EEECCCKKK!!!  I love it!  I Love It!!  I LOVE IT!!! 

Now, where were we???  Oh yeah, we ALL left that meeting with different interpretations.  OUCH!!!  And yep, I am the one who stood alone…AGAIN.  But that is okay, folks.  I kinda LIKE being me these days.  AND while I may not have fellow “TEAMMATES” in line WITH me…???…???…???…I am NEVER alone!!!  “JC” (Jesus Christ) is ALWAYS right there beside me, “CJ” (Crazy Jill).  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  Yep, Jesus is RIGHT there beside each-and-every-one-of-us!!!  NO MATTER WHERE WE ARE!!! 

OUCH!!!  This current situation has weighed heavily-on-my-mind here lately, folks.  I posted the following on FB 22 hours ago:

Lord HELP us ALL when Truth is taken out of the equation.  When the words people actually speak are twisted and interpreted [negatively] to best suit our own needs [or agendas].

Our own interpretations of ALL things guide our own behaviors, folks.  May we each stand (or kneel) willingly and LOVINGLY to HELP each other keep moving in the RIGHT direction from “HERE” to “THERE”.  And while our paths may guide us in different directions here on earth as per God’s perfect will, I sure do HOPE to see you “THERE”…ONE FINE DAY, my friends.  “SHALOM.”

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.

 

 

A DIFFICULT DAY…

in the “HOOD”. (MCNRC)  :/  10/10/17

UGH!!!  I was a bit “OFF” this a.m. as I began my day at work.  Thank-You, Jesus.  I relied on You, my Lord, to turn things around as I kept repeating:  “GOD IS GOOD…ALL THE TIME!!!  ALL THE TIME…GOD IS GOOD!!!”.  BAM!!!  It REALLY HELPS, folks.

And then I also sought a HUG from my trusted TEAMMATE, Toni-the-Tiger, such an AMAZING sister-in-Christ.  Thanks so much, Toni.  (Pppsssttt…she even sang “LET IT GO.  LET IT GO…” to me with her sensual 2-step, Bilateral hip side-sweep dance-move that she has promised to “HELP” me learn.  And we will then take it to the halls of the “CREEK,” MCNRC!!!  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!)  😉 

Hhhmmm…”LIFE IS DIFFICULT,” folks.  For Everybody.  EVERYWHERE.  Wouldn’t it be nice if we could “HELP” each other along the way from “HERE” to “THERE”???  Oh yeah, and I sure do “HOPE” to see you there…ONE FINE DAY!!!

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…”JUST” today!!!

ALL GLORY BE TO GOD!!!  AMEN.

RIDING THE BUS…

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

My heart is “OKAY” TOday, folks. Not REAL happy with current situations …EVERYWHERE.  But not REAL sad either.  :/  I am somewhere in the middle, folks.  AND THAT IS OKAY…FOR TODAY!!!  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!

Recent events have started my mind on a forward roll, folks.  Yep, “THE WHEELS ON THE BUS GO ROUND AND ROUND”…  😉  And I DO realize that NOT EVERYbody on this bus is headed in the same direction or to the same destination.  OUCH!!!  🙁 

SOME riders are HELPFUL and truly enjoy the ride.  SOME are JUST THERE.  And OTHERS are JUST PLAIN EVIL (Although they JUST don’t KNOW it).   Throwing fellow riders, or “TEAMMATES,” UNDER the bus.  LEFT & RIGHT.  At EVERY opportunity available!!!  OUCH!!!  SAD, but TRUE.  🙁

SOOOoooooo…???…???…???…which type of “RIDER” are “YOU”???  Well, Surprise, SURPRISE, folks:  NOBODY WANTS YOU ON THE BUS IF YOU’RE TRYING TO THROW ‘EM UNDER IT!!!  Just sayin’.  😉

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.

 

P.S.:  PRAYER WORKS, folks.  Our Rehab Dept. (“TEAM BLUE”) meeting went well yesterday.  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  Despite the EVIL on our “BUS”…seeking to throw members UNDER IT!!!  GOD IS GOOD…ALL THE TIME!!!  ALL THE TIME…GOD IS GOOD!!!

LET THERE BE LIGHT!!! :)

 THERE IS DARKNESS in the “HOOD,” Lord.  🙁  Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

The waters at the “CREEK” (MCNRC) are becoming dark, deep and dangerous…AGAIN!!!  Heavenly Father, I ask that You provide the buoys for Sal (The D.O.R.S.Director Of Rehab. Services) to THROW that will “HELP” keep “TEAM-BLUE-MATES” afloat.  Amen.

Psalm 118:24
“This is the day the Lord has made.  We will rejoice and be glad in it.”  [NO MATTER WHAT!!!]  (Praying for a positive and uplifting “TEAM” meeting at the CREEK today amid our current difficulties faced.  Amen.)

2 Corinthians 12:9
…”My grace is all you need.  My power works best in weakness”…
TEAM BLUE is weak, Father, please provide Your strength to believers…as per Your will.  Amen.

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

THE COMMON “L.U.I.”

SHERIFF ALLEN, here, (that’s “ME” at “THE CREEK”-MCNRC)…???…???…???…is giving my“SELF” a ticket, folks!!!  A ticket for “L.U.I.”:  Living Under the Influence…of Satan.  Eeeccckkk!!!  FORGIVE ME, FATHER.  Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

Folks, I have been blessed by yet ANOTHER angel at MCNRC.  A current patient who shared her daily ritual of asking God for His Forgiveness for ALL of her daily transgressions.  Those she commits knowingly, as well as those she commits UNknowingly.  Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

OUCH!!!  And I KNEW.  Right Then.  RIGHT THERE… that she was “MY” gift… sent as reinforcement.  A “BACK-UP-PLAN” in case “FLIGHTY JILL” had NOT yet received His message:  “YOUR WAY, JILL,…???…???…???…IS NOT THE ONLY WAY GOD LEADS HIS CHILDREN!!!”  DOUBLE OUCH, OUCH!!!  THE MESSAGE HAS BEEN RECEIVED, LORD!!!  I GOT IT.  I GET IT.  I’M GOOD!!!  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!

Everybody, EVERYWHERE…needs a little “HELP” from their friends, folks.  With “LOVE,” God’s way.  Not with “HATE,” Satan’s way.  “THINK ABOUT IT!!!” ( a tribute to my late brother who passed at age 58)  R.I.P., Bob.  WE SHALL MEET AGAIN…

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

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

ALL GLORY BE TO GOD!!!  AMEN.

 

“LET IT GO”…

🙂   Here I sit…ALL ALONE…with my BFF, J.C. (Jesus Christ) singing the above song from Disney’s movie, “Frozen”.  Right Here.  RIGHT NOW!!! (7:00 a.m.-ish)  Completely to my“SELF”…here inside “JILL’S WORLD”.  And soundin’ pretty GOOD too!!!  Just sayin’.  😉   Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

SOOOoooooo…I, perhaps, made a FOOL of my“SELF” at a professional continuing education course this past weekend up in Jacksonville, FL.  :/  MAYBE.  But THAT’S OKAY, folks.  I am who I am…no matter where I am.  Or who I’m with.  Just give me an audience.  And I will perform…FOR HIM.  :/  :/

Now, 2 other TEAM-BLUE-MATES attended this same conference as well, titled “FUNCTIONAL GERIATRICS”.  It was GREAT!!!  Or so “I” thought.  I’m guessing there were probably 50-60 peers of various disciplines in attendance.

Early on the instructor asked us about the techniques we, as PROFESSIONALS, utilize to motivate UNmotivated patients for therapy.  Hhhmmm…My hand SHOT STRAIGHT UP…towards the ceiling!!!  And I was called upon immediately…from THE VERY FIRST ROW in the conference room (where I ALWAYS sit)!!!  :/   And I actually sang, or blared-out: “LET IT GO.  LET IT GO…” (with my usual gesturing to go along with it) EXACTLY as I do at work…to lighten the tension with noncompliant patients…AND/OR disgruntled co-workers, as well.  😉  ( Pppsssttt…AND…???…???…???…my singing voice was “ON” that EARLY morning, folks!!!)  😉  😉

And…???…???…???… I REALLY  did “LET IT GO,” folks, forgetting ALL about it.  UNTIL… co-workers, apparently, decided NOT to “LET IT GO…”  :/  OUCH!!!  It seems like Everybody, EVERYWHERE is now singing that song at “THE CREEK,” MCNRC.  Hhhmmm…Perhaps some “TEAMMATES” mock me, negatively, however I choose to either “PAY-IT-FORWARD” or to “LET IT GO,”  AND GIVE  A-L-L  THAT “GLORY” TO GOD!!!  AMEN.  The GOOD.  The BAD.  And the UGLY.  😉  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  After all, Jesus loves me…“JUST THE WAY I AM”.  (UGH!!!  I am now singing Billie Joel’s song, “Just The Way You Are”.  Right Here.  RIGHT NOW inside “JILL’S WORLD”.  And yep, “I” think I’m soundin’ pretty GOOD too.  Just sayin’.)  😉

JUST ANOTHER DAY HERE IN “JILL’S WORLD,” folks.  :/

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

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

WALKING THE LINE…

“TOGETHER”!!!  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  AND TEETERING OR TOTTERING…ALL THE WAY…HEY!!!  Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

That “LINE” between SANITY/INSANITY seems to keep getting narrower and narrower.  The ENTIRE world seems so completely divided by “HATE”…unnecessarily, folks.  A “HATE” that is, sadly, infiltrating “LOVE”. 

HATE is spreading.  Entire groups of people are being categorized according to a few members’ actions/words.  Yep, this group HATES that group because of who or what they “LOVE”.  :/  Yet NObody can pin-point or agree on the EXACT culprit to BLAME…

Sadly…Americans are ALWAYS on a witch-hunt.  EVERYBODY gets caught up in playing the “BLAME-GAME”.  We love, Love, LOVE to throw TEAMMATES “under-the-bus”.  🙁  Hhhmmm…God is telling “ME”… NOT  to play this game, folks, so I am placing my“SELF” on the sideline…and KNEELING, IN PRAYER.  PRAYER IS POWERFUL, folks.  For those who BELIEVE.  (Eeeccckkk…perhaps I’m a “CHEERLEADER”…over on the sideline of this “BLAME GAME”!!!)  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  GO TEAM!!!  🙂

Hhhmmm…which “TEAM” are you playing for???  And whose rule-book are you playing by:  God’s or Satan’s?

  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.
