For your consideration……

No, today’s message is not about fishing….exactly. Although, doesn’t the about picture look like a perfect moment. Who are these people? Are they related? Can you feel the comfort and peace?

This photo captured a moment. It captured a moment in lives filled with millions. There were moments before that had to happen for this moment to occur just as this moment set up life moments to come.

We are told today that life is simply a series of moments we catch and release. How we look at that inevitability makes all the difference. We can be afraid, excited, worried, confident, sad, happy, unrelenting, forgiving, regretful, HOPEful, despaired, optimistic, hateful, loving….or all of it and more in a myriad of combinations.

Each moment we catch impacts the next when it is released. It is inevitable. We can choose to try to hold onto the moment…hold onto the feelings of it…. but that is an illusion. Each moment must be released. What is not an illusion is the power of our intention and how it effects the next…..the next…..the next etc. when we release it.

What we do to the moment we catch is up to us. We can release it for the better or for the worse. We have a choice. We always have a choice.

That is the HOPE. And so it is.

Bit by bit, piece by piece, HOPE by HOPE action steps anyone can take……

-Meditate/pray…..set yourself up for success and happiness.

-Drink lots of water.

-Get outdoors and take in at least 10 deep breaths.

-Be fully conscious in the moment. Put your intention on it.

Love, Blessings and Gratitude,

Rev. Chris
