For your consideration…..

I had a friend call me last night and just vent. “What is wrong with the world? Where is the common sense?” I know it feels like that sometimes. But here is the deal, we all have personal responsibility. We don’t always step up to the plate with it. Some people always abdicate.

Our message today is fun because it gives us license to “break some rules” by reminding us to use our common sense. You know right from wrong. All those “do’s and don’ts” are unnecessary and you are not required to follow them.

For example, when asked to babysit or teach, all I need to know is contact info, health info and a list of places they to be or what needs to be taught. I do not need a list of other do’s and don’ts.

What about other rules? For instance, who made the rule you can’t have dessert first?

Think about it. If everyone always followed all of the “do’s and don’ts” there would be no process improvement. We are reminded that we have to untie ourselves, step out of the box, follow our instincts and let our creativity flow. It sounds like fun to me!

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.

-Ask “why.” Does it make sense? Is there a better way? Is it necessary? Chart your own course.

What made me smile yesterday…..

-A beautiful sunny day.

-Visiting with neighbors.

-Talking to Alex and my Sis.

-A surprise and great call from my friend Sue from Texas.

Love, Blessings and Gratitude,

Rev. Chris
