True Story!

A few years ago I was getting these really insane water bills. I mean HIGH! So I decided to dig some wells in my yard to have water for my landscape. I live alone, so I know it had to be from watering the grass. So I hired a company to come out and dig these wells. The foreman and I walked all around my yard and as we were walking he was putting down flags. I asked what the flags were for. He said, "The flags represent good places to dig for water." I asked, "Why do you have so many flags?" He said, "I'm not sure if any of these places will produce water." I said, "Hold up, you mean if you dig all these spots and don't hit water I still have to pay you?" He said, "Yes, that's how it goes." I said, "Ok, fine." Needless to say, he dug three wells and never hit water. I said, "Just stop."

I got a few more extreme water bills and called him back. He said, "Are you sure?" I said, "Yes, keep drilling until you hit water." The next well he dug he was down 500 feet and still didn't hit any water. He asked if I wanted him to stop. I said, "Go deeper." He dug down another 200 feet and still nothing. I said, "Go deeper." He drilled another 200 feet and he hit rock. I said, "Blast it, cut it, do whatever you have to do but keep digging." After fighting the rock and breaking his drill and getting a new one we got a little deeper. He said, "We are at 1,200 feet, why do you want me to keep going?" I said, "Cause I'm tired of these water bills and I'm going to do something about it." He said, "But this is really deep." I asked him if he had hit water yet. He said "no," so I told him to go deeper. "But you don't understand," he said. "We don't usually drill this deep, this is going to be expensive." I told him that, "Sometimes you have to go deeper to get what you are after, no matter what the cost." He started the machine and went down another four inches and hit a river of water. Just a few inches separated me from getting my breakthrough. That was five years ago and that well has never run dry.

In 2013 I want you to apply that to your life in all ways. Sometimes you will spend time on a thing and it will produce no water. Don't be afraid to move on to another spot. YOU CAN'T HAVE FEAR. I don't care how much time you put into it. If the well is dry MOVE ON! Nothing lives where there is no living water. Be it a relationship, a job, a business, don't be afraid to move to another spot.

Now, on the other hand, if you are digging your well and you are sure that it is not only where you want to be but where God wants you to be, then keep digging in that same spot. Don't stop digging until you hit a river of blessings. Don't stop praying until you live in the change you've been waiting for. Don't stop pushing until you deliver your breakthrough. Yes, it will get difficult. Yes, you may hit rock. Yes, there will be a cost. But when you get to what God is trying to get you to, YOU WILL RECOVER IT ALL!  One of my favorite scriptures says that. "PURSUE AND YOU SHALL RECOVER IT ALL!"

Some people give up when they are only inches away!!

Happy New Year.

DDDDIIGGGGGG! People DIG!!!

    And not only that! I also, think its extremely important to have fun together. Enjoy one another. Each others presence & time. There have been times where I wanted to ask this question: "Why is it, we wait until someone we love is sick or hospitalized before we spend time with them? Meaning time that u drop all that u are doing & you deem it to be strictly important to do so!?" I just wonder about that kind of stuff from time to time. For one, that's when we hear most say pray, pray pray.... Cause so & so is sick, ill, fighting so & so, or its an emergency. When theory bible clearly says, "pray without ceasing" & "men ought to always pray & not faint!" Are those the times were we are the most fearful? I don't recall Jesus ever being fearful! I read & see & understand Jesus to be tough, different, outstanding, a wonder. Do we even know what Jesus did for 18yrs? From 12-30! Well, Love, I am pretty sleepy. Let's turn it in for tonight. I love you & good night. See you in the morning time. Kiss! Good night. Let's embrace. :-) ...LoL... :-)

    I longed for the times where my man & I could have devotions together. Grow together in the Word of God. See manifestation & revelations. Pray & Enjoy the Only One who could have sustained us to bring us together. That alone is a blessing. Marriage is very important to me as well. Lots of times ppl would say to me, "you know all this you should be the one with someone." LOL! That was easier said than done. And u know what I was saying in my head, "save the best for last!" LOL! Have u noticed most times, as ppl we like to be the first in everything? What about the ppl would got drunk off the wine at the beginning of the wedding? Then what about the ones who tasted the last of the wine. That miracle wine! That wine that Jesus turned from water into wine! That must have been some kinda wine! :-)

    Review: God knows what's best for you. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, & forever. Dear God, I may not understand why everything is happening in my life right now but I just wanted to say, "I trust You & I Love You!" :-) Don't let any1 get in the way of your RELATIONSHIP w/ God. Instead of meditating on your troubles, Meditate on God's Promises (Yea & Amen!) And MOST of all, PRAY! ..forget about the ppl who will judge you because you're God's follower, because you're trying to glorify Him, or because you're a Christian. It's GOD that you should ALWAYS BE PLEASING, NOT ppl! Amen. :-)

    Tyler, also before I had my oldest son, Damion was in the Military. He & I once we got older tried to hook up. However, he turned right around & married a friend girl (at the time) of mines. Wow! That hurted! I couldn't believe it when they hooked up. Keep in mind, when they finally got married. I went to the wedding & sat there to witness that thing. Yes, it happen. :-) And then sometime passed & he & his family lived in H-Town. It was around this time of the year about 4yrs ago. His wife, our classmate from high school died from Cancer. He raises their 3 children. Why he's asking me my business at this time. I really don't know. I already answered him when he out the blue message & asked me. Faith! :o !!! :)

You'll be responsible for driving us around. :P Sometimes I will drive but not when you're around. For what! LOL!!! :-) You're responsible for flying us, as well. That's called having your personal pilot. :-) You're the only person that Im gonna trust with our lives. See Tyler, I think you became a pilot for me/us. I like that about you. :-) Yes, that you are a pilot. Now, that's SEXY T, to me! To sit back & watch my man fly me first the first time. Is really very exciting to me, too! It's a dream, a thrill, a rush & you're going to have to see to it I'm calm & comfortable. So, u better add that into your plans. Cause this gonna be something else right here. :-) You can handle it though! :o !!!! ...lol... LoL.... Are you planning on making me comfortable, T? :) Alright! :-) ...LoL... :-) That means, NO PLAYING! LOL... NONE! LoL!!! Cause I long to have this experience with you. I been waiting for you & it. :-) I'm excited, too! :o !!!! Then u gonna teach me how to, before too long. And we're both gonna look back & just laugh at it all. You gonna say, "I told u it was nothing to be frighten of!" And I'm gonna say, "I know Baby, because you are the absolute best man any woman could spend her life with! And thank you! I knew I could trust you, to get the job done!" :-) I love you, Baby! :-) and you will say, "I love you, too, Sheneith!" :o !!!! ...LoL... :-) Love of my life! The best, too! OMG JESUS, THANK YOU. Good thangs do come to those who wait. I also believe God to renew our youth. :-) Have a Good Sunday T! We'll talk soon. Kiss! And thanks for holding me & never letting me go. I guess, I'll never let you go either. :P Cause you know, I got the gift of goodbye! That's right! I sure do! :P This is one reason how & why I am enjoying every minute/moment(s) of all of this with you. It wasn't the guys who left me, Tyler! It was me who would kick they a$$ to the curb & say, "you not the one!" Cause they wasn't the one! If they was, then it would've last. I play no games! And ain't trying to start playing none either!!! Ttyl :-)

    Would u like to know what area would please me in being popular? It's being a mother to my sons & they grow up & realize just what I have done for them & love, respect & appreciate the mother God so gave to them. And 2ndly, but 1st: that the man that God so bless me to be his woman; that I'm pleasing in his eyes. And he is satisfied & well pleased with me. Nothing else matters to me. Nothing else matters to me!! Marriage isn't a showcase! First of all the two must take time to get to know & love each other for who they are & get an understanding of each other. That's first before you can showcase anything! Then & only then can you show off what the Lord has done in & with the two of you! That takes time, conversation, commitment, devotion, dedication, togetherness, along with other things. Such as praying together, sitting down reading & studying your Bible together. Not just throwing verses at each other. Also fun such be included. However, the other must be willing to find out what's fun & or important to the next person & be willing to be open enough in time to do so. Ok, I done told u. :-)

    Hello Tyler, let me tell you something. This is what I'm gonna need for u to do: identify which one of all that other p.g.s you are. Because all others will be removed asap or at least removed from coming thru to me. Why? Because I don't want them there any longer. Be it right or be it wrong! Am I serious? Yes, I am. I have my reasons to why I feel this way, too! When it come to God, anything God wanna tell me. He does! Somehow, some way or another! This I know. You know how you would say, another water for one seed; & if your spread it over many seeds, you won't have enough for that one seed? That's for one reason. The other reason is, if I choose to give you my attention. Do I need someone else outside of myself to tell me how to do it? I don't think so! You know over these years what came to mind concerning you TP? Was this: "Who is it that Tyler have that sticks/support/stand with/stand for him? Seem like to me others have somebody or had somebody. And you mean to tell me you been solo (with God of course) meaning alone all this time? Well, when I said, Both: meaning, God & yourself. That's exactly what I meant. And God is a Spirit. You are a human being with a Body, Soul & Spirit. I'm not the type of person who chooses to allow more than one talk to me at a time. So, if u gonna do it, do it! Everybody else gotta go! If u wanna do it, you can do it & I truly believe you're great at it, too! I really feel that way, too! The thing is, Tyler, you are a natural. There is no competition when it comes to you. Not any! Let me show u better than I can tell you then!! And I do hope you receive this the right way, too! What I kept asking you? Tyler, is there something u want for yourself? So, let me ask you this way: "Do u TP, want Sheneith for yourself?" Well, then!! It's all about respect. And I choose not to share myself with everybody! Perhaps, u think they keeping me company? I don't need anyone to keep me company other than yourself. I'm fine with you. That's ENOUGH for me. It's ENOUGH for me, Tyler. Believe me when I tell you. And thanks for your time & thanks for caring enough to listen & hear me. I appreciate you. Kiss! & I choose to fall asleep in your arms each & every night. Not somebody else's. Only yours will do for me!! I hope we have this understanding now. The Man himself is the one who is to speak to his woman. Period! It would really cut down on lots of confusion. If u know what I mean! Problem solved! And forgive please if I had anything to do with the situation being the way it is. However, we live & we learn. How do u show unconditional love to your woman, T? Remember, sometimes we must go deeper to get what we really want. Ok, then. Just be yourself with me. I don't care for anything else. Just be yourself, & that will be ALL RIGHT with me. :-)
