You got to know when to hold ’em,
Know when to fold ’em,
Know when to walk away,
And know when to run.
You never count your money
When you’re sittin’ at the table.
There’ll be time enough for countin’
When the dealing’s done.

For your consideration….

If we are living a well lived life, we are investing ourselves. We put our heart and soul into what is important to us; family, friends, work, hobbies, spirit etc.

Most often we put in unconditional love when we invest of ourselves. As we have heard before, love is eternal. The blessings love gives us never dies. But it can become bittersweet like when a loved one dies, a divorce or breakup or when circumstances just change.

People change with circumstances and sometimes that makes all the difference. Sometimes people grow together and/or bridge the changes. Sometimes they do not.

What is important to remember is that we have been blessed to have the love in the first place. Then sometimes we have to respect and honor that love and let it go.

That is the HOPE. And so it is.

Bit by bit, piece by piece, HOPE by HOPE action steps anyone can take….

-Say it out loud. Affirm it…I am loved.

-Meditate/pray…ask…”What is my next step for my highest good and the highest good of all?”

-Drink lots of life affirming water.

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

What made me smile yesterday….

-A beautiful ride back from Whistler.

-Leftovers. You got to love the convenience of them.

-A good book.

-The Gordons.

Love, Blessings and Gratitude,

Rev. Chris
