For your consideration…….

Why the hesitation? We often find ourselves in the chicken or the egg scenario. Who makes the first move? Should we smile first? Should we make the initial contact? Should we extend our hand? Should we give that hug? Should we offer to help?

If we have the question, we pretty much have the answer. If our open heart sees the need or is inclined, than we are being called.

Our ego may try to tell us otherwise. Our ego may demand someone else make the first move or require an invitation. Our ego is afraid that our gesture may not be welcome or turned down. Our ego is worried about how we look.

However, our open and loving heart does not care about any of those things. Our open and loving heart is ready to be of service. Our open and loving heart remembers that we are part of the One. Our brother or sister, Mother Earth, pets….all living things are also part of that same One and therefore part of us.

We are being asked to do as our open heart asks without hesitation.

That is the HOPE. And so it is.

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

-Meditate/pray…..feel your loving open heart.

-Drink lots of water.

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

-Be ready with a smile and helping hand.

What made me smile yesterday……

-A beautiful day for a road trip with Bruce and Ginger.

-We got the family cemetery planted in time for Aunt Betty’s service.

-Ginger treated us to lunch at Win Schuler’s

Love, Blessings and Gratitude,

Rev. Chris
