For your consideration….

Many of us go right for the coffee first thing in the morning, others tea, others juice, others water. We crave and satisfy that craving.

So too it is with our spiritual thirst. Fear, confusion, unrest etc. are all cravings telling us that our spiritual cup needs to be replenished. Some of us know exactly how to do that. Some of us have not learned how or what will satisfy it. We don’t know what we want or need.

Our spirituality is a journey. We don’t fill our cup just once. We don’t always fill it with the same thing. As we journey, we learn what fills our spiritual cup and what drains it. It is a process and it is all good. It is all ok. The belief systems, the people, the churches, the organizations, the questions, the answers, the life experiences we encounter along our journey speak to our soul and determine what fills up our spiritual cup. We learn what satisfies our spiritual cravings.

Filling our spiritual cup should never be an after thought, something we do only when we are in trouble or whenever we have spare time. No, it is like vitamins. It is the first thing we need to do to stay healthy.

We are asked today to consider giving time each morning to filling your spiritual cup.

That is the HOPE.

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.

-Fill your spiritual cup.

What made me smile yesterday….

-A relaxing morning at Stillwater.

-Delicious lunch at the Fish Market with a little shopping afterwards with my brother.

-A great ride home and time left over to get some things done ie; confer with landscapers, Gordie starting the porch painting, a potential owner for the couch came by.

-My brother, Gordie, and I went to AJ’s lacrosse game. Wow, that’s a wild sport.

-We had to stop at Gabriel’s and pick up cheese steak hoagies. It was on the way home.

Love, Blessings and Gratitude,
