Rejoice

Offer it up

Disney Customer Service Speaker
Forgiveness sets you free. It sets the forgiven free as well.

Father John spoke about offering it up, a couple days ago during his sermon.

i immediately wrote it down.

What a great metaphor. Father John said his Mom would always tell him to offer it up when he got a sports injury – to use the injury for some good.

And then just now as i’m writing this…

Dear Cheryl, if all i got, is your hand in my hand, baby i could die…a happy man. The song is here.

Bask in your blessings

Disney Institute Speakers
Setting up my office before the audience arrives. It’s encumbant on me to have the best questions in the entire room.

Bask in your blessings.

God (or whomever you use) has provided us with a body – a temple housing everything keeping us alive.

i know you’re not defensive with Lane8’s post today because you know i’m not being boastful nor condescending.

You know i’m simply asking a question.

My life and career has been built on asking questions.

It’s my job.

(And i love getting to do it for a living.)

Halfway down Main Street last night.

 

Blessed beyond measure isn’t a cliche, it’s truth.

Live like you know this is true and you will consistently…

Live like you mean it.

Dear Son

Let the punishment fit the crime and self-forgive

Disney podcast jeff noel
i’m not the wisest person in the world, but i’m the wisest i’ve ever been in 59 years – wise enough to have a podcast (coming soon, maybe tomorrow).

 

Driving home from school, we stopped at our mailbox so i could get the mail.

Attempting to put the car in park before it had come to a full and complete stop, the car jerked slightly.

The driver’s emotional reaction to his “mistake” was bigger than it needed to be.

Thinking he would self-manage this and quickly self-resolve/forgive, i noticed he wasn’t.

i reminded him that three weeks after i received my Pennsylvania driver’s license, i totaled our family car ( a giant station wagon).

It was Halloween night and there were trick-or-treaters everywhere.

The greatest blessing that came from totally destroying my parents’ car?

No one was injured.

No one was killed.

Both could have easily happened.

Blindsided by his text

We’ve known each other for 59 years.

 

Epic trip.

Writing.

Hiking.

Reconnecting.

Other than last month, we hadn’t seen each other in 30+ years.
