Do you remember the old nursery rhyme about Jack and Jill – well there’s a lil’ more to it than a cute nursery rhyme recited to infants, toddlers, and preschoolers. ?
The real story began with the beheading of King Louis XVI who lost his crown and Queen Marie Antoinette who went tumbling down after him – kinda sorta. You know those two who’s ostentatious wealth perhaps drive their sucky attitude towards the poor. Remember the famous statement, “Let them eat cake”? Well, that’s another story all in itself.
There’s another rumor about a couple back in the 1690’s who would sneak up the hill to be alone and you know – “do the do”. The girl gets pregnant and the boy dies from a falling rock and the girl dies after giving birth. All that from a nursery rhyme! True or not I don’t know…
Why!!! doesn’t he call me anymore? Well, there are the obvious answers, he doesn’t want to be bothered, he doesn’t like me or find me interesting anymore, or perhaps he just wanted to use me!
Use me, how could he use me when I so ready to go up the hill with him and “do the do!
Oops we’re not ready to tell all that truth, we are not ready to take on the responsibility of having participated in a manner that would surely execute our fantasy wedding dress dreams!
Wedding dress, yup we all do it, have done and will do it again. We see Mr. Could be standing there looking oh so debonair. Or we see Mr. Ruff Neck rolling ’round the way with those Vogue rims on that cream-colored Cadillac and in a fleeting moment, we don’t even notice it when it happens, were damn near oblivious to our own inner workings as a woman!
There it is, the story of our lives!
Jack and Jill went up the hill to fetch a pail of water;
Jack fell down and broke his crown and Jill came tumbling after;
Actually, it went a lil’ like this;
Jill saw Jack up on the hill;
Jill was all warm and fuzzy looking at Jack;
Jack was on the phone;
Jack had not noticed Jill;
Jill saw Jack’s friend;
Jack’s friend introduced Jill to Jack;
Jill was still warm and fuzzy;
Jack being who he was felt Jill’s warm and fuzziness from the car or cell phone;
After some time Jill allowed Jack to feel her warm and fuzziness;
Jack had skills, and made Jill feel really really warm;
Jill had been in a bad relationship previously so anything would have been better than what she had;
Jack did and said things that Tyrone never would;
Jill feels warm and fuzzy all the time now!
Jill never asked Jack if they could stay on the hill – she assumed it would happen because Jack never said I don’t like it here on the hill with you;
Jack had warm and fuzzy feelings for others…
When Jack shows Jill who he really is, Jill is furious;
Remember Jill never asked Jack if they could stay on the hill;
Jill had already bought her wedding dress and had the guest list prepared – in her visions of things to come:
Jack falls down and breaks his crown, Jill went tumbling after him;
Jack keeps being Jack and Jill keeps tumbling…right into aggravated rage, anger, hurt, and frustration.
Jill doesn’t realize that she should have had a conversation with Jack about the arrangements on the hill, instead, she begins to talk “ish” about Jack to her friends and maybe his friends too.
I’m thinking of a song right here, “I’ll bust the windows out your car…” oh nevermind…
Jill is now consumed with her loss of Jack, she needs something to relieve the pain, instead, she finds those crazy memes to post all over social media as if Jack can read.
Why does she call his phone 32 times in row as if he’s going to answer and if he does why does she get mad and his response ____________________________________?
Jill doesn’t know she’s (emotionally) sick and requires the help of the Comforter, to help navigate her valley of pain.
Until Jill acknowledges her current state she will place blame and try to make Jack feel like dung.
Proverbs 18:22New King James Version (NKJV)
22 He who finds a wife finds a good thing, (Not she who seduces him, or she who get’s involved with a married man, or she who gives up the goodies before the trial”. It reads “He” who finds…
And obtains favor from the Lord.
