For your consideration…….

If we had a quarter for every time our parents, teachers, clergy, extended family etc. said, “When I was young……” or “We used to….”

The point is that what was standard is no longer. Technology, science, beliefs, traditions, culture etc. changes. Things we never thought would or could change do.

It is pointed out to us today that nothing stays the same.. Change is certain and constant. We are asked to consider that and take charge of our own paradigm. What no longer serves us we can change. It does not matter if it is still working for other people. If it is no longer working for us for our highest good, we can change it.

That is the HOPE. And so it is.

Bit by bit, piece by piece, HOPE by HOPE actions 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.

-Go off automatic and be conscious of your thoughts and actions. Don’t be afraid of change.

What made me smile yesterday……

-A late snooze.

-Going out to breakfast is one of my favorite things to do. I always go with a friend or neighbor because Bruce sleeps so late and doesn’t like to eat when he wakes up. What a great surprise yesterday when he asked if I wanted to go to the Bomber for breakfast.

-Every time I thought of an incident that happened leaving the Jimmy Buffet concert, I laugh. We were walking to our car along with several other people. The Detroit police were directing traffic. An officer halted traffic and waved for us pedestrians to cross the street. As we stepped off the curb, a yellow cab came barreling up to the intersection. Seeing that the other lanes were stopped and now people we crossing the street, he slammed on the brakes. The crowd and the police officer all panicked for a moment. As we continued we jokingly told the officer, “Revoke his license.” The officer replied, “He probably doesn’t have one.” Ahhhh comic relief.

Love, Blessings and Gratitude,

Rev. Chris
