Reflections (Chapter 2)

Hello America,

I won't be long today....

As we all face the reality that we will not have a deal before Christmas...

We should reflect briefly how we got to this cliff.

Reckless spending,  ya da, stuff we have all heard before, but first and foremost.

Lack of planning.

The Obama administration has reformed health care, took on gay marriage, broke every fiscal spending record possible, but has yet to do one single thing actually required by the constitution.

Pass a budget because Harry Reid has yet to offer one up for a vote but Obama's which has been the single bipartisan measure that fails everytime.

Wouldn't let a balanced budget amendment go through, but never put the brakes on spending.

Uses this CR as panic attacks, cleverly all due at important election or post election times.

I am going to tell a player that I pray for, that I know is going through some lessons God wants him to learn, ... and a politician who is going through the same thing a quick story and I'm done.

I'm in my workout zone so my self-confidence is picking up as I start to see the results of my efforts, and because a page in my life is ending, the yokes are lifting.

So Kobe Bean Bryant... and John Andrew Boehner.........

come on down.

This is an actual reflection out of my life.

When I left to move to LA in 2005, I didn't know if I was going to get into Pepperdine formally, but God told me I would so I did.  I didn't have a vehicle that could carry all my stuff so I got a Ford F150 truck...  The engine had been converted, truck had been converted for hauling, engine brakes all that.

I have lost a lot since then..... all the clothes I had, all of the material things I got... all that, just from the course of my life, it happened...

So now, almost 8 years later as I left out headed west on I-20 on 1/17/2005 or 06 can't remember, I don't have anything I put in that truck, my ex husband who drove us, he's gone.

The growing equipment and seeds I had to grow some Kush, which I did ;) it's all gone, the equipment I am trying to finish unloading on ebay as we speak.

The tumor I didn't know I had in me at the time, gone.

The abuse I suffered at the hands of my exhusband and Pepperdine . all that's gone.

The house I moved in when I came back to Dallas gone.

The dogs I had that I loved so much, that the ex probably dumped on the side of the road, more than likely dead....... they gone.

But over the years, two things are still here, me and my truck.

Because of the identity theft that has been done by folks I won't mention here, that truck has been a source of contention.  The illegals and criminals that use my identity don't want me to have it, b/c VINs are unique to each car, who knew? ;)  They need anyone but me to have it......

So despite challenges of losing my job, finding another one, cut up clothes, missing photo books, everything that was precious to me... My friend called my truck remains.

God comes to me and says........

"You can go to Chicago but that truck can't and I am going to put you in a situation where you can't bring it..."

I ponder for awhile....... for I just got through working out on Monday morn and it's day break and I'm tired

"If I leave it...... the fraud will continue and I can't have that....."

God nods........

"That's true" he says "so let me work something out to accommodate  that point because I do feel you..... but my point remains that vehicle represents roads that you have already been down and unless you need or want to go back down those roads again....... you don't need it"

My point is this John and Kobe.......

Pastor Jenkins sermon came from Mark in which a woman innately understood that she didn't have to have the most direct point of connection to tap into Jesus' power.  And because of her miracles, someone else dared to even fathom for they didn't have the strength yet to believe.....

And his sole command to the man, was be not afraid, only believe.....

I guess what I'm trying to say is.......

One, two, one, two, three

Oh, yeah, yeah,
Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah,
Oh, yeah, yeah,
Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah,

You've won on talent didn't need miracles
Never was afraid to put your ass on the line
But now you losing  lacking something spiritual
You've forgot it took a team to make that plane fly

'Cuz it took more than you to get to paradise
Your team needs to see belief not fear  in your eyes
You need flow, yeah, yeah, yeah
'Cause you forgot that there is no fear can get you  to heaven
Don't Wait too long, too long
Yeah, until you realize that belief in your team can get you to heaven
This losing season will be made long

Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah,
Oh, yeah, yeah,
Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah,

 You two have earned degress
In Game, but here to testify
You will keep losing until you change your ways
A team ain't about rank, a band of brothers dammit down to fight
A unit that will let nothing stop its way

'Cuz it takes more than you to get to paradise
Yeah, you find a way to make your brothers rise
It's called flow, yeah, yeah, yeah
'Cuz you need to let your team know, that you need them for heaven
Don't wait too long, too long
You make them know they are your blessing
They need to know they belong

Oh, oh, oh, oh, yeah, yeah, yeah
Can't be no more fear here
Stop fussing over yesteryears
Oh, oh, oh, oh, yeah, yeah, yeah
Can' be no fear
About what will happen b/c of  yesteryear

'When ur name ain't Kobe its Laker, then you get heaven
  Don't wait too long, too long
  When ur name ain't Speaker, its servant then you get heaven
Because the game, loves, will move on

Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah,
Oh, yeah, yeah,
Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah,

Locked out of Heaven (John's and Kobe's call)

You two ain't no gangsters......

I understand Boehner you raise money, but you don't threaten ANYONE and you did,  and that's bullies like me, folks that are documented for crossing boundaries, firing folks come in.

These HOUSE GOP is your team, your band of brothers and sisters.......

Not your damn gang, get up off your ass, and reach out to them, so they can convey exactly what's going on to their bosses.

The American voters.

We are not damn morons, We are the most educated citzenry in this world.  We school your ass..... not the other way around.

You pull that one man in private mess again, you will pay, b/c the gavel sir is gone.. I don't care what politico says.

You work the votes.....  The people work me..

See the difference.

Get back to being the John who didn't have anything but a bought for tan.

Then you'll get the support you need......  

But the gavel is gone...

You too far gone, too addicted to next political cycle.

As for Kobe........

Stay off ESPN, your teammates don't want to see your ass waking up about the great "kobe" and what's going on.

Just chill and hang with your brothers man.....

You guys have all the talent in the world, but talent can't buy chemistry.

Find one song, and just before practice just clap........ until everyone from the coaches to the players are on the same page.......  

Make that your one song...... and don't be stiff and formal, just be Beans....... Damn "Kobe"

don't be Coach, be you man......  

Treat everyone like your equal.......

b/c every championship ring you got say Los Angeles Lakers,

Not Kobe Bean Bryant.......

And you ain't got Fish to remind your ass anymore ;)

God Bless

If I can let my truck that has been my only way of getting around and escaping from God knows what go....... you too can let these egos go and get back to what made you great..........
