Holy Spirit

It felt good to be back in the classroom last night. You could sense, and feel, and see God’s Holy Spirit in the classroom.

This is our son’s third year in Catechism. This is my second year having the privilege to be a classroom helper. However, I missed all four September classes due to my business travel schedule.

A colleague commented at the end of the business day, “I don’t know how you do it”.

I asked her, “You know I write five blogs, everyday, then run five miles, and volunteer for things our son is involved in”?

And she already knows how hard I work as a professional speaker – she is, after all, a colleague, and a parent, and Catholic, etc.

What I have learned is that being incredibly busy is part of life. Or not. Figure out what you want to contribute and then go from there. Carpe diem.

Lord’s Prayer every morning?

At the beginning of April, I decided to see if I could develop a new habit.

Habits are easy to start if you’re not trying, especially if they are something that sounds like this:

The easier it is to do, the harder it is to stop“.

So it also works this way:

The harder it is to do, the harder it is to change“.

Don’t believe it? Then try to wake up and kneel by your bed, for just a minute, to say a few prayers. “Dude, if it were easy, you’d already be doing it”, is what I say to myself.

Made 26 straight days, until this morning. I’m forgiving myself though. Know why?

I woke up in at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge – Kidani Village, in a spectacular room with a spectacular view. Disney Vacation Club’s newest offering opens May 1.

I later said the three payers in the car as I drove to downtown Orlando, to do my civic duty as a Juror.

Good luck tomorrow on whatever it is you are trying to do or stop doing. I know first hand the challenges, and rewards, for not giving up.

Get started and never stop. Carpe diem, jeff noel 🙂
