Good morning Col Burroughs. It's definitely a bit cooler; we had our long promised t-storms last night.
We all face some disappointments in our lives. For some of us, they are small, for others they are large but what matters is what do you do when faced with them? Do you find a workaround? Barrel through? Do you give up? What's your style and your reaction? I tend to be an analyzer and responder but sometimes I stay in that place of "rehash" a bit too long although I've gotten better as I realize time grows shorter and I don't want to waste it on what I cannot change.

Good Tuesday morning "Posse Leader" from the Greater Boston Area where it is a cool 68° with a humidity of 71% and winds, WNW @4 mph... It's only expected to hit 89-90° today... I work my IT shift from 8-1, so I won't be on RP to frequently this morning... Have a great last day at Steamboat Springs before heading home! Safe travels back... Heading to the shower, back later to finish my response...


1) "You will never fail until you stop trying. Disappointment is only for those who expect to much." - unknown

2) "The size of your success is measured by the strength of your desire; the size of your dream; and how you handle disappointment along the way." - Robert Kiyosaki

3) "If we will be quiet and ready enough, we shall find compensation in every disappointment." - Henry David Thoreau

4) "God makes the life fertile by disappointments, as he makes the ground fertile by frosts.
Henry Ward Beecher

5) "You must make a decision that you are going to move on. It won't happen automatically. You will have to rise up and say, ‘I don’t care how hard this is, I don’t care how disappointed I am, I’m not going to let this get the best of me. I’m moving on with my life." - Joel Osteen

There are many ways to handle disappointments and know that...

“Leaders will take disappointments and find constructive ways to turn them into opportunities to win. They have to deal with and resolve personal disappointment and the team’s disappointment.”— COL (Ret) Mikel Burroughs

I expect that the disappointments you have experience have strengthened your patience. Hopefully, disappointment has built compassion in you. I expect that you have done much to please those who love you and learned what pleases and displeases them. “Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy’ [Matthew 5:7 ESV] Mark.
I pray you that I seize each opportunity to live our lives wisely, not foolishly [Ephesians 5:15 CEB]. I pray that we are each discerning and generous with our time, talent, and treasure. ‘Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy.’ [Matthew 5:7 ESV] , my brother-in-Christ SP5 Mark Kuzinski.

When you or your loved ones encounter disappointing circumstances, I pray that you take to heart ‘we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose’ [Romans 8:28] and encourage those facing disappointment. I pray that we do our best not to disappoint anybody with reasonable expectations.
I pray that parents, siblings, aunts, uncles, cousins, and grandparents do our best to develop and encourage reasonable expectations for gifts of time, talent, and treasure. I pray that we do our best to fulfil obligations.
When we disappoint others accidentally, I pray that seek forgiveness from the offended party and work to use the opportunity to please the injured party and restore fellowship.
I pray LORD that each one of YOUR adopted sons and daughters who reads this prayer understands and heeds the admonition of the LORD 'So be careful to live your life wisely, not foolishly. Take advantage of every opportunity because these are evil times. [ Ephesians 5:15-15 CEB]
I pray that each of the elected leaders, legislators, appointed officials, and judges throughout the USA, ]as well as Australia, Canada, Mexico, India, Europe, Africa, Philippines, Japan, Korea, Central and South America] take the opportunity to turn their disappointments into a blessing for those they are responsible for. I pray that most of these officials are increasingly become servant leaders focused on serving.
I pray that each one of YOUR adopted children and your loved ones sleep well Tuesday night and will awake healthy on Wednesday morning.
By the power and authority of the Name above all names, Jesus the Christ.
