THE BARGAINING BLANKET

Oh, my goodness.  My heart is STILL smiling over “THIS” one, folks.  I invite you to join me on a trip to “ME MEADOW,” the very pleasant and Very, VERY peaceful meadow in my mind, otherwise-known-as “JILL’S WORLD”.  

AWE…It was automatic, folks.  I wrapped my arm around her at work on Sunday, 1/21/18.  “SHE”…???…???…???…is a frail, 100 year-old patient who is ready to meet her Maker. Hallelujah!!!  Amen.

She spoke proudly of her skill in making specialty blankets…back-in-the-day.  Different designs, colors, materials, etc.  Oh yeah, she was proud of the blankets she designed.  “That’s what I did,” she said.  And with an unexpected turn in the discussion she then admitted offering to make a special blanket for God…if He would just call her home to heaven.  🙂  Eeeccckkk!!!  AND SHE MEANT IT TOO!!!

I wrapped my left arm around her back, placed my hand on her shoulder and gently pulled her toward me while half-joking, “THAT’S A BRIBE!!!”  😉  And we both chuckled…”TOGETHER”.  Amen.

She was so, So, SO SERIOUS, or matter-of-fact, with  the report of her offer (BRIBE) to God.  Oh Lord, my heart is still smiling, folks.  And I can almost “feel” a faint chuckle in the confines of my chest cavity, as well…  “HEHEHE”. (Thinkin’ of you, dad, and your special laugh.  R.I.P.😉  

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

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

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

ALL GLORY BE TO GOD!!!  AMEN.
