For your consideration….

I can not adequately express how strong this message is. It came in like booming, resounding, landing square in front of my entire being.

“And so it is.”

These are words you see everyday in this blog. I was given the format for the blog and I was given the ending line for each of them. “That is the HOPE. And so it is.” I never questioned it. And I have to say that the HOPE drew my focus. Today I have been asked to turn our focus on “And so it is.”  

And so it is are not just words. They are a declaration that our message is true and we hear it. We are reminded today that each of us can declare our wishes, dreams, words, love, HOPE, blessings as true. When we do so, they become a commitment.

We have been given a second message today on “And so it is. These words can be a mantra that we march through each day with. This mantra can be the period that finalizes a thought, action or commitment. It is another handy tool we have in our life tool box.

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?”

-Commit to it. And so it is.

-Drink lots of water.

-Get outdoors and take in at least 10 deep breaths.

What made me smile yesterday….

-I woke up early to use the restroom and thought, “I should check on Alex and Jame’s flight.” I did and wow, it was 35 minutes ahead of schedule. I got up and did my morning routine (The blog was very early for a Saturday morning) and headed early to the airport. I was about 4 minutes out when Alex called to tell me they had landed 45 minutes early. Wahoo.

-The extra time meant we had time to stop for breakfast.

-My Mac, my Peanut, my heart made her Confirmation yesterday. It was great. We followed with lunch before she, James and Alex headed to the Michigan game.

-We all met back up at AJ’s soccer game at 8:30 pm.

-It was definitely a full day but sooo much fun and it feels so good to hug those I love.

Love, Blessings and Gratitude,

Rev. Chris
