To those of you that have been supportive of JSP...THANK YOU!!! It has been a crazy couple of days, & I know I have been remiss...please bear with me...I WILL BE BACK!!! LOL!!! I am doing a bit of an overhaul, & some more research...such as: using real words; trying to figure out how to get comments from people without them having to sell their souls; making a list of topics I would like to discuss, or at least start a discussion about; to be able to still retain the "essence that is me", but maybe reach more people. Again, thank you & Happy 4th of July!!! Have a good day & be safe...

When Mr Miyagi told Daniel in The Karate Kid, "...learn balance!!!"; he wasn't just talking karate...he was speaking physically, mentally & spiritually. I definitely know when something's out of whack, because my plates just go haywire!!! Chaos ensues, & I don't know whether to "wind my butt or scratch my watch" (Steel Magnolias). Life requires balance. Sometimes it's a minute by minute battle!!! Perseverence is the key. Just remember, you CAN get there...have a good day & be safe...

When God created the earth & man, etc; He did it with the intention of relationship. Sure, He had the Trinity, etc; but He created us mainly so He could have MORE relationships - "to infinity & beyond" (He said it first - lol). Our relationships are our greatest assets. We need to treasure & value them on a daily basis. Sometimes, it's not necessarily easty, but most things TRULY worthwhile aren't. Honest communication is the key. It's all a part of JusT SpInnIng PlaTes...have a good day & be safe...

I'm enjoying doing this blog. It's alot like "theme journalling". Like I told my friends, "You know what comes out of my mouth, imagine what stays up here!!!" (& I point to my head). I've been on this earth ALMOST 53 years now, & over the years have had a plethora of situations come up, & go away. I try & make it a habit, sometimes it happens unconsciously, to learn from every situation that comes up. That's kind of what this blog is about. Even seeing the positive in a very negative situation. I DO have my "dark times": but I learn from them & go on. THAT'S the rub - the "going on". Have a good day & be safe...

Say you've been consistent with something, or against something for say, oh, ten years. Then one day you are presented with a proposal in which the afore-mentioned is involved. You agree to compromise yourself, mainly in anticipation of bettering yourself. (Don't worry, it's not illegal or anything.) There are MANY feelings involved. As with any new situation, there's fear, definitely feeling anxious. You know that it really IS a good decision, & an answer to prayers. Let's just say I can't wait for it to begin & get the jitters out. Heard a story that kind of goes like this: A man ended up deserted on an island. Every day, he prayed for God to come & take him off the island. One day, a man rowed by on a kayak. He asked the guy to go with - he said God was going to come & take him off the island. Kayak guy rowed away. Then a guy on a pontoon arrived on island, & asked guy to go with. He said God was going to come & take him off the island. Pontoon guy puttered away. Then an ocean liner sent an envoy & asked the guy to go with; he gave them same story. Next day, he's getting frustrated & tells God he's angry because He hasn't come & taken him off the island. God told him, "I sent you a kayak, a pontoon & even an ocean liner!!! You didn't take the help I sent you!!!" Have a good day & be safe...
