For your consideration….

How about it? Do you feel like that sometimes? Are you craving some downtime or waiting for life to settle back into normalcy? Yeah, life can seem crazy at times and everyone yearns for that normalcy. Today’s message reminds us that is normal but also points out that everyone’s “crazy and normal” is different. Indeed what is crazy for some is perfectly normal for others.

That is what life is all about. We are all unique and different. Some is because we were born that way and some is because of the experiences of our life. It is the interaction we have with each other and our environment.

It is in this “mish mash” that we learn and grow. It is where we see new things, see old things differently and begin to evaluate and adjust our perceptions and values. In the mish mash we see the starkness of contrast as well as varying degrees of it. We see sorrow so that we recognize joy. We see sadness and know the sweetness of happiness. We know work so that we can value rest.

It is in the living of within the mish mash of life that we observe and envision. We get ideas and see the possibilities. We nourish HOPE. The mish mash is good. It is all good.

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.

-Wallow in the mish mash of life. Infiltrate it.

What made me smile yesterday…..

-Picking Don and Mary up and stopping for breakfast.

-Some Christmas bargains.

-Thank goodness I was delayed a few minutes. In that amount of time the weather turned and the roads became slick with ice. I turned around and went back home and snuggled in.

-Chatting with Lori and Alex.

Love, Blessings and Gratitude,
