Palm Sunday is tomorrow.

Kinda sneaks up on you as the global pandemic steals the show.

Adversity reveals character

jeff noel wisdom
KLD on Instagram creates these and they are fun to see.

Adversity reveals character.

Adversity doesn’t develop character, it reveals it.

Last night my final message to our son was this:

Hey, tomorrow, let’s talk about how calm i’ve been in the midst of Covid-19. Most people are panicked, deeply concerned about their future, and literally having anxiety attacks. My whole life has been a slow and steady continuous improvement journey. You would be perfectly normal to be freaked out now, and freaked out because your friends are probably freaked out. Please do not compare where you are with where i am. Sleep on it and we’ll talk tomorrow.

What you are about to read next is what i call clarity, expectations, and accountability – summed up, bluntly, as one of life’s harsh realities. You are the CEO of You, Inc. Everything in your life is your responsibility. To refute this is to live in a closed-mindset, child-adult relationship with your world.

If you aren’t leading yourself well now, you weren’t leading yourself well before Covid-19.

If you were leading yourself well before Covid-19, you are leading yourself well now.

Adversity is showing our true colors as they say.

i am presently unemployed, and probably will be for the rest of the year, so this is a perfect time to panic. But panic isn’t in my vocabulary anymore, and hasn’t been for years.

Meanwhile, i continue to offer hope and personal challenge, as i have my whole life, to anyone who cares to listen.

Well Spring?

Glacier National park
Church is every step we take. Nature, or simply being outside, is a great place for “Church”.

Well Spring?

What do you drink in each day to refresh and quench your soul?

Where is your well?

May your cup runneth over .

Time for plan b

Photo: Looking North toward Canada, from Mt Oberlin (8,200′).

Time for plan b.

Ordered a “deluxe” wrist/thumb brace on Amazon yesterday. The wrist inflammation is improving but in hindsight, it’s taking too long. This brace would have been ideal earlier. Better late than never.

Time for (and room for) a second plan b.

Easter.

Two weeks away.

Missing Church because the Covid-19 buzz is distracting our focus on Lent and the Risen Jesus.

Believe in what lights your fire and provides you unexplainable peace – believe in it all the way, as if your life depends on it.

It certainly doesn’t need to be Jesus, but it does need to be something.

If you doubt this now, there will come a time when you are faced with a harsh reality and you are confronting a fear you never imagined. At that moment, you will understand what this post is trying to say.

Beauty will rise

Cool, damp, Fall morning in Glacier National Park.

Yesterday morning’s Covid-19 update places the United States as the world’s leader in cases, surpassing China.

The two-trillion dollar bill passed.

Lots of momentum.

Growing daily.

We haven’t seen the worst of it.

The world unites.

The world triumphs.

Beauty will rise.
