You Can #Quote Me On That! @NonnieJules @RRBC_Org @RRBC_RWISA @Tweets4RWISA #RRBC

SEPTEMBER/OCTOBER QUOTABLE:

QUOTE I know who I am and whose I am...

Sometimes it’s safer to stay locked up by fear, than to take a chance and step out on the faith that you can do whatever is daring you to move.  Many of us are walking around the world, leaning into our own understanding instead of standing on God’s word.  

I felt compelled to share this article with you:  WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO STEP OUT ON FAITH?  It sums up the sentiment behind my quote so much better than I ever could.

  1. Good Morning Nonnie,
    My heart started singing when I saw this quote and Clip from Denzel Washington. I have his testimony saved on my YouTube channel and it is always an encouragement for me.
    Thanks.

  2. I love this quote! Be fearlessly yourself, and you’ll free those who are attracted to you to be equally bold and fearless. Critics will always find things to be critical of, but their opinions are theirs and should never squelch your enthusiasm.

  3. Hi,
    I am smiling because I am Amen-ing this quote. The world would be more peaceful when we start minding our own business and stop trying to judge others and tell them what they are not doing right.

  4. Great quote, John. I’d venture to say that both honest and dishonest reviews are telling of the reviewer; however, only one sheds a positive light. If only it were so easy to tell who is being honest. Lol! Each person’s experience with a story is based on their own personal journey in life – their likes/dislikes, background, reading ability, etc. That’s why I choose to take reviews lightly. 🙂

  5. Nonnie, this quote says it all. We so often forget to be grateful for all the amazing and wonderful things life has afforded us. Thank you for the reminder! Gratitude is the best attitude!

  6. Dear RRBC Members, I would have loved to put out the call to everyone to participate, but I had to keep it a secret from Nonnie so she would be surprised, so I couldn’t put a shout out about the blog. Another way to support Nonnie is to support and follow her blog at BooksByNonnie.wordpress.com. Cheers, Wendy

  8. This quote is a great statement! We support our friends best by standing by their side and supporting their cause. Speak up against injustices. Vote for people who are wiling to fight for change for ALL of our citizens. Support small businesses that are owned by minorities. Even a small change can make a huge difference! 🙂

  10. Thought-provoking quotes, Nonnie! I had to pause and let each one really sink in. Dr. Martin Luther King was a true visionary and such a wonderful example of what it takes to change the world!

  11. Every morning I start with the prayer of thanks for this day and a promise to live my life as God would have me live it. I do not always succeed, but I try. As we give out, so shall we receive.

  13. My commitment has been tested to it’s very core this afternoon! I still haven’t decided whether I’m being kind or leaving the problem for the next unsuspecting appointment.

    It’s been about six weeks since I’ve been to get my hair cut so I’m in dire need of a major overhaul! My stylist recently retired so I’m going out on a limb with someone new today. I printed pictures of what my hair is to look like from every angle. But what did I get? A 2″ high and tight pixie cut!

    Imagine my surprise, and utter horror, when I put my glasses on and was handed the mirror for a look. My darling husband looked like a deer in the headlights as I was turning toward the mirror (he knows me).

    My first instinct is to rip this poor, young, very pregnant stylist up one side and down the other, sending her crying from the store. I stopped myself and breathed very deeply. I ran my hands through this cute little cut, looked at my round, double chinned face and declared it just darling! After all, it will grow out enough to be styled again by summer!

    I even remembered to tip this sweet young thing. I’ve removed her number from my phone already!

  14. I am absolutely in! For the past couple of years, I have committed myself to improving one area within my life. Last year, I committed myself to embracing change. This year, I’ve committed to embracing the happiness within me (not relying on outside sources for happiness). Now, I am adding this to my journey this year. 🙂

  15. I admit to having a short fuse…at times it’s shorter than at others, depending on what rude person I might encounter. Today, while shopping, my patience was tested, but instead of directly teaching the rude clerk a lesson, I spoke with her manager privately and then, she taught me a lesson. If you all can remember, I wrote a blog a while ago about “meeting people where they are.” Well, I will admit that I didn’t try very hard back then, but now, I am determined to do just that. My expectations of myself and others are very high. I expect decency from everyone, but I must understand that no matter how high my expectations are, some may be content to remain just the way they are…and, in the place they are in, no matter how low it might be. I have come to the realization, that if they won’t change, then I must change my reactions to them.

    This is me sharing my experience of how I am working to meet this month’s challenge of being kinder to everyone I encounter.

    What’s your story?

    • Staci, my daughter saw your comment here with your photo and said: “Mommy, she looks like she’s already nice to everyone all the time.” I responded: “Well, that was sweet! What about me?” She looked at me and said, “Mommy, I’m going to need you to write your commitment down 49 more times.” I am still laughing so hard I have tears in my eyes!
