The Acts Chapter 5 (Game Time!)

Hello America,

This is the last chapter in this book.  It is SuperBowl Sunday..........Now today will have its moments, its disappointments, all that.  But trust, SO TRUST IN THE FACT THAT WHEN I SAY IT IS A BLESSING........A TESTAMENT TO GOD'S GRACE THAT WE ARE ALL HERE, THAT WE ARE ALLRIGHT OR TRYING TO BE............

TODAY'S TRIUMPHS.............WILL SUPERCEDE THE LOWS OF TODAY.

Y'all ready.........

Today, I was up early.  I am just one of those type people.  I always get up too early, never lay back down, but I know me.  I know what I need to keep the edge I need for whatever hours.  Be it a test or an assessment or writing, I know my body.

This morning, I couldn't sleep.  There is a lot of tension from my friends, my family, my personal life. A lot is at stake............Nobody thought I would make it this far and trust everything that I have stated that I wanted to get done or spend time with today, won't happen just to hurt my feelings a little more.....

But early, early this morning, I got up and started cleaning up.  I clean better when I'm in my little zone, helps me think.  I thanked God for blessing me to be here.  I thanked God for the truths in my life that are going to come out.  I thanked God most importantly for the chance to be on the field.........

I didn't have to walk this morning, may have to hop a train this evening, so as I was cleaning up, I heard God as he walked in the room.

"What's up, Tiffani?

"Nothing much, just getting ready you know.  Each and every day, I fought.........I clawed............I yelled...........I cursed............I did what I had to do to get what I wanted........."

"And what was that, Tiffani?"  the formal pronouciation of my name is not missed................

"A chance to play"

Moments that seem like the cavalier's season go by.

"You know God, no disrespect because you know this is for our audience.  But I'm not stupid, I'm not crazy..........I'm one of the most sane persons running around here.  I just feel a little too deep at moments.  I see how you let all of your children play all these games on me, play all these games on America, because I believe all of man is your children.

I realized early that I could not overcome my enemy with force, not at that time. I had to weaken my enemy and that meant a rope-a-dope mentality, but trust God all of my faculties are here.  I don't know what is going to happen, I don't know when my next paycheck will come.  I don't know too much about today, much less about tomorrow.

All I know is that I made it here, and it's GAMETIME.  AND I AM LEAVING EVERY OUNCE, EVERY FIBER, EVERY DENDRITE, EVERY INCH OF MY MYELIN SHEATHS TO DO WHAT ALL I HAVE TO DO TO GET DONE WHAT I NEED TO GET DONE.  I AIN'T GOING TO FEEL BAD BECAUSE UNLIKE CONGRESSWOMAN GIFFORDS, IT REALLY WAS A CROSSFIRE ON MY HEAD..........."

"I see..............you know what this is going to cost you?"

"How can I know, I ain't God.  All I know to reach this point in my career, is a blessing, an opportunity, I cannot take for granted that will be here tomorrow.  All I can do.................All I can do ..............is just hold on to your unchanging hand.  I know, what I counted on will fall through, I know that I might lose somethings I think I need.  But I also know that this my time, this is my game, this is my victory and I earned it.  I'm gonna play.  I want to play with your blessing, but I understand that it is not always about me and you got your other children to think about........."

He nods his head, he walks away...........

My point is that today, universally around the globe, THIS IS THE DAY OF EXCELLENCE.  IT IS THE SUPER BOWL.  AND MORE AND MORE WE HAVE AN ADMINISTRATION THAT IS ABSENT DURING CRISIS, BUT DOWN FOR PARTYTIME!

TIVO, O'RILEY, USE THAT TIME TO TALK ABOUT MEMORIES, OR TALK TRASH, OR PLAY BLACK AND YELLOW, BUT AFTER YOU PLAY GREEN AND YELLOW...........STILL A CHEESEHEAD, I AIN'T BACKING DOWN FROM MY SQUAD.......

WE ARE GOING TO GET TO PALIN AND ALL THAT TOMORROW, BUT AS WE WATCH THESE TWO TEAMS BATTLE IT OUT TODAY, AS WE DETERMINE WHO GOT REAL CHEESE AND WHO SPREADING THAT CHEEZE WHIZ.

THINK ABOUT THIS 2012 FIELD, THINK ABOUT THIS MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD, THINK ABOUT THIS OBAMA ADMINISTRATION, THINK ABOUT THIS ALL THOSE WHO NEED MY DEMISE TO STAY AFLOAT....................

IF I AM WILLING TO DO ALL OF THIS TO GET ON THE FIELD, AND NO I AM NOT TALKING ABOUT FOOTBALL, BUT IT SERVES AS AN EXCELLENT METHAPHOR.  THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE IS DYNAMIC, IT ABSORBS OUR CULTURE LIKE VERBAL SPONGES.........

IF I AM WILLING TO TAKE THE HITS,THE LIES, THE CHARGES, THE LET DOWN, THE UPS, THE DISAPPOINTMENTS..........

JUST LIKE AARON RODGERS, RAJI, WOODSON, MCCHARTY, THE GREEN BAY PACKERS TOOK THE LOSS OF BRETT FARVE, THE LOSING SNAP, THE 6TH SEED AND KNOCKED DOWN VICK, RYAN, AND CUTLER TO DO IT...............

THEN WHAT DO YOU THINK THEY ARE GOING TO DO ON THE FIELD?

WHAT DO YOU THINK I AM GOING TO DO ON MY FIELD?

2012 WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO ON THE FIELD?

I had to tell more than anyone should know about my life to have my chance on the field, just like these NFL players have to do and yeah, the money helps, but in the end it's the memories that last..........just like your job.  And it hurts to hurt those you love, but when they hurting you from your time on the field, what are you going to do? 

For me,  it's gametime, and that started for me at three this morning.  All I can do is hope that I got some familar faces waiting for me when the game is over.

So today, let's all have something to talk about tomorrow.  Whether you at home alone, you with your friends, you twittering, you out and about, don't matter....................

Let's see who leaves what on the field...............

GO PACK GO!     GREEN AND YELLOW, GREEN AND YELLOW........
