For your consideration…..

We are asked to think about Joy today. True Joy has one direction. It flows from the inside out. Joy comes from our spirit. It is a state of being. Anything we do from our state of Joy, our authentic self, is blessed and made better.

HOPEfully many things put smiles on our faces and zings to our hearts as we experience life. Life experiences can enhance our joy. We gather those experiences and add them to our collection stored in our soul by experiencing and being grateful. Gratitude is the difference between keeping and losing those happy experiences. Happy life experiences flow inward and feed our Joy. They grow it so that we can in turn apply a heightened Joyfull spirit to all we do.

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.

-Remember to be grateful and capture those happy experiences.

What made me smile yesterday…..

-A picture perfect day. Sunny and warm.

-A fun day at Mary and Todd’s. It was great to finally meet Todd’s dad and brothers.

-A great meal.

-Our dog woke up sick and we were very worried but as the day progressed he seemed to rally. It is a real mystery but we are grateful he is better.

Love, Blessings and Gratitude,

Rev. Chris
