For your consideration…..

When I got today’s message, I automatically thought of my kindergarteners. I love teaching kindergarten the first week of school because it gives me a baseline for each and every time I return to substitute teach them. Each and every time I go back I see enormous growth. I am awe struck  and instilled with the realm of possibilities. I tell them that and they are always surprised until I give them examples.

You see when we are living each and every day, our growth is so gradual that we are often unaware of it. We don’t get to see the sharp contrast that a gap in time highlights.

We are reminded today that even though we may be unaware, “We’ve come a long way, Baby.” We have experienced enormous change, expanded our knowledge base, discovered more about who we are and what we are here to do, learned passion and restraint. We are better at accepting Spirit and love versus ego and judgment. The list goes on and on.

We are more, much more, than we were before. We just don’t always realize it. It is all good. We are the HOPE.

That is the HOPE. And so it is.

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

-Meditate/pray…as…”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.

-Pick a past date. Reflect on who you were in thoughts, actions and beliefs. Compare it to now.

What made me smile yesterday…..

-Shannon is feeling better.

-Alex had a great “skip” day.

-My friend, Jody, has come to visit.

-Dinner with more old friends, Julie and Vicky.

Love, Blessings and Gratitude,

Rev. Chris
