For your consideration…..

Put it down. Take a step back. Put it away. Give it some distance. These are all valid strategies for plans, problems or concerns.

In our strife to make things happen or get things done we can hyper-focus on the task. If this is going well, we are probably going with the flow. The timing is right. But if we are struggling, if we are making decisions we are not happy with or can’t seem to come to a decision, we are going against the natural flow. The timing is not right.

When this happens, we need to take a step back and give it some distance. When the time is right, what we need will be put in our path and we will have the clarity and experience to recognize it.

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.” Listen and pay attention to the answer. The Universe is not holding you back it is preparing you for a bigger future.

-Drink lots of water.

-Get outdoors and take in at least 10 deep breaths. Mine were from my porch this morning, a gentle rain providing perfect music.

-Do you feel joy? Bring joy to whatever you do.

What made me smile yesterday…..

-A beautiful day at Stillwater.

-Kerri and Jeff’s video announcing their daughters.

-Pictures of the Gordon’s new puppy. Oh my, I can’t wait to get my hands on him Monday.

-Visiting on the back deck with my neighbors is a perfect way to wind down the day.

Love, Blessings and Gratitude,

Rev. Chris
