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.

Can you count your major blessings?

leaky pool pump motor
Brand new pool pump is not supposed to leak, and it didn’t for the first few weeks.

 

Can you count your major blessings?

One of the often misused blessings is an ability to quickly put things into perspective.

Discovered our recently replaced pool pump motor is leaking.

This now becomes another thing on the list of things needing attention.

Attention requires time.

Too many things (that shouldn’t need attention) needing attention can derail our daily routine.

Derailed daily routines are what lead to excuses, unhealthy compromise, and stress.

And so i quickly understand that this is a first-world issue.

Blessed Beyond Measure?

Do you see everything as a fleeting gift?

Hope and faith
Yesterday on the Music Choice Soundscapes channel. My reflection was intentional.

 

Do you see everything as a fleeting gift?

The persistence of vision.

Seeing the future and never waiving from forward progress.

The redemptive power of persistence.

Find meaning.

Learn endurance first.

Everything we have is a gift.

Insert human forgetfulness.

In America, we (stereotypically) think everything is an entitlement.

Paved roads, electricity, public education, clean drinking water, etc, etc.

Our children, our grandchildren, our belongings, our health, etc, etc.

All of it could be taken away quickly, and suddenly, and what are we left with?

This is ours to figure out.

Hope is faith holding out its hand in the dark. – George Iles
