It reminds us to live and lead with the attitude of a child. Children are dreamers with big imaginations. Our grandkids remind us of that. They act like super-heroes who do feats but don’t settle for defeat.
No one who achieves success does so without the help of others. I’d like to think I’ve had some success as a pastor. There are many people on whom I have depended, none more so than Jocelyn.
There is no quit in this woman.
She is my super hero.
Far too often I’ve been oblivious to the obvious – especially when it comes to Jocelyn.
An Attitude of Gratitude
Saying thank you and expressing genuine gratitude is one the most overlooked, yet powerful tools of successful leadership.
The attitude of gratitude will give your life altitude. (Jocelyn calls that phrase a “bobism”)
So grateful to all who gathered for the REVs celebration at North Pointe on March 17th. #blessed
Jocelyn collects what she calls “Bobisms” – things she’s heard over the decades.
I am a turtle on a fence post. When you see a turtle on a fence post you know he didn’t get there on his own.
For every setback God will give you a greater comeback.
Discipleship is a marathon not a sprint. Stamina, not speed is required.
Tenacity, grit and perseverance are the friends of faith.
The power to change is the power of choice.
Delays are not God’s denials.
What happens after you use faith is when the fun starts.
Revealing your feeling is the beginning of healing.
Bob’s favorite snack…
Never, ever, ever, ever, quit.
Attitude is supernal.
Character is eternal.
Kneel to rise.
To live dangerously is not to live recklessly but to live righteously.
Don’t keep the faith. Share it.
People are doing the best they can.
It’s always too soon to quit.
Grateful for friends like Nadine Burden and their timely words and photos.
“Sometimes it feels like the path ahead isn’t easy to see but at some point the sun will light it up.”
When you are at the end of your rope, take five and remember…
Focus on what you have not what you lack.
Include others in your journey.
Venture forth in faith.
Expect to stall, not to fall.
