For your consideration…..

When I got today’s message, I knew just the picture I needed for it. I have just always loved this picture because it is sharing from the heart. It is pure love and pure innocence.

Sharing by its very definition is giving or receiving a piece of something. We do both all of the time. It is no big deal. However, “caring sharing” is a big deal. That is the kind of sharing that we are asked to consider. It requires a connection between our ego and heart. It is a collaboration and consensus between the two. It can literally change the world.

Sharing that changes the world needs one more thing. It requires ownership. Sure we can share what does not belong to us but there will be no effective benefits gained for either party. Caring sharing requires that we have clear ownership. It is ours or theirs to give.

Finally, we are reminded that we often tend to think of sharing as involving things when most of our sharing is not about things or money. Our best sharing is when we impart knowledge, wisdom or experience, lend a helping hand, offer a smile, give encouragement, give a shoulder to cry on or hug of comfort……all from the heart.

That is the HOPE. And so it is.

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

-Meditate/pray….ask “What is my next step for my highest good and the highest good of all?”

-Drink lots of water.

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

-Walk or sit outside barefoot.

-Caring sharing.

What made me smile yesterday…….

-A blue sky and sunshine.

-Waking up at Stillwater and meditating outside.



Love, Blessings and Gratitude,

Rev. Chris
