Never Give Up!

Friends,

I had been praying that I would find work to help supplement my income and I found a job, even though it wasn’t my first pick but I’m just not one to turn down any honest work – that’s not who I am, thank God. Picky workers starve. However, I had sent my resume to a company about two months ago but shortly after they put a freeze on hiring, so I pressed on with what I had been given.

Last Monday, one of the managers of that same company had called me & left a voicemail message asking that I come in for an interview that coming Wednesday and to call to confirm that I could make it. Well, for some odd reason, even though I use my phone everyday & check my voicemail daily, I never got the message….until last night. I had to take the battery out & when I put it back in I got an alert that I had a voicemail. I checked it & lo and behold, I listened to that message to me asking me to come in for the interview…from a week ago. I was so mad at myself, the phone, the world because I’m thinking “how could I have missed it” & the world must be against me, AND I’m trying to decide if I’ll even call them back because it’s been eight days since the message was left.

I was mad, discouraged & really self-defeated. How could I miss the call for the job which I really have wanted & had prayed for! So, I get out of my slump this morning because that’s unproductive. I prayed about it & decided to call the manager today. I explained that I had not even received his message & asked if the position had been filled, in my mind thinking that it HAD to have been filled in this economy, with Georgia’s unemployment rate being so high – no way could someone NOT have been hired.

Well, it had NOT been filled. The manager said that he was hoping I’d call back to confirm because I had the most experience of all of the other resumes they had received so far. He also wasn’t going to hunt me down either & had done his part by extending the interview opportunity. He had thought that I must have procured other employment or ignored the message, but didn’t have the etiquette to either call to decline or accept. He was puzzled by the disparity between the accolades received by my references & my lack of a response. They did interview others but no one really stood out yet. Four people confirmed the interview but didn’t show up. So guess where I’m going tomorrow morning? the interview bright & early – (gotta go to bed tonight, no late night Facebooking for me, writing or anything else). I don’t know if I’ll be hired, but I would not have this opportunity, had I just accepted defeat. All I needed was a chance to shine & I will. Be encouraged. Never give up/in!

“Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may obtain it.” – I Cor. 9:24

“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.” – Joshua 1:9

Merry Christmas!!!!

merry christmasMerry Christmas everyone! I just wanted to take a moment to wish you all a very, Merry Christmas! I hope that you all have enjoyed this holiday season with your family & friends as I have. I also want us all to take a moment to pray for the families who lost their beloved children & family members in the recent, tragic school shooting in Connecticut. My heart goes out to those families & I pray for healing for them. No parent should have to bury their child. With that, let us be thankful for our families & each moment we share with them! I know that I do! God bless all of you & have a wonderful, blessed Christmas & a very prosperous New Year! As Christians around the world celebrate the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ, I wanted to share with you all this poem that I had to memorize when I was 11 or 12 years old in church. It’s author is unknown to this day:

“Twas’ the Night Before Jesus”

‘Twas the night before Jesus came and all through the house
Not a creature was praying, not one in the house.
Their Bibles were lain on the shelf without care
In hopes that Jesus would not come there.
The children were dressing to crawl into bed.
Not once ever kneeling or bowing a head.
And Mom in her rocker with baby on her lap
Was watching the Late Show while I took a nap.

When out of the East there arose such a clatter.
I sprang to my feet to see what was the matter.
Away to the window I flew like a flash,
Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash!

When what to my wondering eyes should appear
But angels proclaiming that Jesus was here.
With a light like the sun sending forth a bright ray
I knew in a moment this must be THE DAY!

The light of His face made me cover my head
It was Jesus! returning just like He had said.
And though I possessed worldly wisdom and wealth,
I cried when I saw Him in spite of myself.

In the Book of Life which He held in His hand
Was written the name of every saved man.
He spoke not a word as He searched for my name;
When He said “it’s not here” my head hung in shame.

The people whose names had been written with love
He gathered to take to His Father above.
With those who were ready He rose without a sound.
While all the rest were left standing around.

I fell to my knees, but it was too late;
I had waited too long and thus sealed my fate.
I stood and I cried as they rose out of sight;
Oh, if only I had been ready tonight.

In the words of this poem the meaning is clear;
The coming of Jesus is drawing near.
There’s only one life and when comes the last call
We’ll find that the Bible was true after all!

 

MERRY CHRISTMAS & HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

Everyone have a wonderful Thanksgiving tomorrow! I will be dining with my family as will many of you and this year my Mom & sister are cooking everything & I’ll just be doing the dishes/clean-up.I want to thank all of my Conservative Calmversation followers for your support! I am truly blessed and grateful to have have such a wonderful family (immediate & extended) and such great friends and followers as well, who care about our country & it’s citizens.

I pray for those less fortunate than I who don’t have shelter, clothing or who won’t be sitting around a table filled with family & food – ANY of us at any point could be in such a predicament, so let’s remember to thank God for all that we have. I can’t help but to think of & pray for Israel & the growing turmoil overseas – please keep them all in your prayers as well. I also am praying for all of the troops overseas who won’t be with their families tomorrow. It’s been a rough year for so many, but not nearly as bad as things could be and I am optimistic!. I pray that everyone who is or will be traveling this week will do so safely and don’t shop too hard on Black Friday! I will be working all week, including a brief 4 hour day on Thanksgiving so everyone, Be Blessed! Don’t eat too much! I will be continuing my series The Top 10 Things Black & White People Want to Know About one Another, but Won’t Ask after the holiday since the election has ended, on CainTV so get ready! Everyone be safe & be blessed! Happy Thanksgiving!

Psalm 107:1
“Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.”

RE: “Bush Did It, You Hate Obama”

RE: “Bush Did It, You Hate Obama”

“Bush did it/Bush did it too/You hate Obama” = “Talitha, I am really not educated on the issues enough to present a viable argument, so I’ll just blame Bush or try to divert attention from this by saying you hate Obama”

This is in response to many messages on social media and emails I have received in response to my blogs. If the shoe fits wear it (but there’s no need to tell me you’re wearing it), if not, don’t.

The most effective and strongest elected leaders take the moral and fiscal compasses they inherit and begin immediately to steer the people in the right direction. They do not give scapegoats or precedents more weight than the Constitution, which they take a public oath to uphold (on a Bible at that). They use common sense, morality, business and legislative acumen as well as the voice of the people, to ensure that every American is empowered to pursue life, liberty and happiness as the forefathers envisioned and as natural law makes apparent. If you want to argue that Obama is the best man for the job or that he is the lesser of two evils that’s fine but if you cannot do so apart from blaming Bush, or indulging in mind reading to tell me how I feel, then I submit, that you have not thoroughly studied the platform of the one you support to start with. Therefore, you cannot effectively argue aside from anti-Bush, anti-GOP or anti-Tea Party talking points and rhetoric.

In this election year, the most effective debates are color-blind and strictly seek to critique policy, legislation and actions in light of the constitution, not popularity, race, class or culture. Personally, I have conceded that America is too immature to do this, even after we have been separated by time from the many racial, cultural, gender-based and religious struggles, that so many of those before us gave their lives for, knowing that they would not see or benefit from such freedoms themselves. I urge you all to pray for all of our leaders and one another, that we would grow as a nation and reach the level of maturity and intellectual prowess needed, not merely to stay afloat but to thrive again. As for now we are no better than children squabbling over trinkets in a burning building. God help us. God help us all. God (please) bless America, even though we don’t deserve it.
