“The world reflects what you need to see, not only what you want to see.” Stephen C. Paul

For your consideration….

We have had many messages about judgment. We have been asked to suspend judgment. But we are human and much goes on in our life that we love and hate and everything in between.

Today differentiates between our likes and dislikes versus judgment. It is ok to like and dislike. We cross the line when we judge it. Judgment is when we decide or judge that something is was destined to happen or not happen. When we believe in coincidences or believe that something shouldn’t have happened, then we are judging.

It all comes down to this. We believe in a God or we don’t. If we believe, then we know that God is in charge and there are no coincidences and what happens was intended…his intention. So unless we believe God is screwing up, there is no place for our judgment. We may or may not like what we see or experience. We may not understand it but it is not our place to judge.

I, for one, am happy to release the burden of judgment to he who knows all.

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.

-Suspend judgment.


What made me smile yesterday….

-My favorite kindergarteners.

-A beautiful day.

-We made wind socks. I asked the students to put them in their mailbox until it was time to pack up. I was busy when I suddenly saw most of the students jump up and like a flock of birds, run to the mailboxes. I see that the “tails” are all flying and then the wind socks themselves start flying out. The classroom door was open and when the back door was opened it had created a wind tunnel. When the students saw their wind socks start coming to life, it was a real scene.

-Dinner at our club with Bruce and Bob.
