Tomorrow will be a day☀️ of new beginnings💥. Finally, after totally surrendering and letting go💫 of my will and trying to dictate to God what I should have; he gave me just me what I needed. I kidd you not. Isn’t it funny 😁how God really has a sense of humor. I can hear him now, “Shannon, oh, girl🙅, you think you can boss 😎me around? Well, just sit back and enjoy the ride 🚄 of life called, ‘Belly Up☝️.'” Yep, that’s about right; I was turned, “Belly Up!”” ☝️Do you know what “Belly Up” means? According to Sam Hill🦋, “Belly Up” ☝️means you have been turned upside down👇, tossed to and fro like a ship🛳️ on troubled waters, shaken up like a milkshake🍧 while trying to survive being in the eye 🕶👀of the storm and when the storm stopped, you landed “Belly Up!☝️” Keeping in mind this literally means that you have lost everything. Everything meaning EVERYTHING. Yep! Houses🏰, cars🚘, land, health, money💲, career💱💶💶, dignity and pride. Barebones. Poorer than Dick’s hatband. So poor you got no pot🚽 to pee in nor a window🚪 to throw it out. I’m talking, slap down, dog🐶, dirt poor.
🏄”Belly Up☝️” was the only way God could get my full, undivided attention. What’s so funny 😂 and I mean tummy tickling😎, roll in the dirt, pee in your pants funny; I distinctly remember talking to my hunka, hunka,, burning love❤️, Terry, “Sweetie I love ❤️you so much that I would live any where with you. In a tent🎪. In a car🚕. In an old run down farmhouse🏜️. It don’t matter. Because as long as I got you; I got everything I need.” Saying and really doing are two different things. 😲Really? Me? Live Here? You’re joking? 😢😂Right? Especially, when it comes to a do or die situation. Well, for a monent or two, Heaven 🕌🌅looked like an affordable option. At least I would have streets of gold, golden gates, flowers 🌹that never faded, and a mansion🕌. Yep, I got “Belly Up”👆 instead.
❤️You see, Terry and I have had the best of everything. Sure, tough times here and there that tested our faith and loyalty to each other. I’ll❤️ save that story for another day. Let’s get back to “Belly Up☝️!” Hmmm? I thought I was “Miss It👸👼.” Two doctorates and a highly successful career💲💱💹. Invisible. Wonder Woman. Super Woman. Shannon, the Super Hero🏋️. Well, guess what? I wasn’t all that Super. I got the rug📥 pulled out from under me. All I had won; I lost. There were places I had been and memories to fill several terrabites of servers💻. Luckily, that’s all I had were the external hard drives📱.
🐰I remember hearing testimonies of how people lost it all and hung🏋️ on with all their faith and might. Proclaiming still the love and goodness of God. Yeah, I said many of times, “Bless their hearts❤️. I’m so glad I didn’t have to go through the Job Experience.” NOT. ME. Hmmm? Seriously!? 😲To make a long story short (for now), God took me through”Belly Up☝️! ” Well, to be brutally honest, I got double, the total Job ecperience. Hey😲, I’m still somewhere between the middle and floundering towards coming out on the bright side, shouting hallelujah, Praise you Jesus! Then, my chain gets jerked again and I get taken down a few belt buckle notches. Still, don’t push a good lady👸 too far. Just when Im pushed in a corner with more medical diagnoses (another “Belly Up” for another time) and not knowing where on earth 🏜️we’re going to live; God showed up☝️. Proved up☝️. He gave us the unexpected; a house. Yes, we’ve been blessed and to him all praise, glory, and honor goes to him. He gives us the desires of our heart, but it’s his timing. Perfect timing. ❤️❤️Stay tuned for the totally, ultimately, excitedly, “Belly Up 👍” experience. It’s gonna be a hoot of a story 📖
