For your consideration….

We have had many messages about listening before. Today’s is specific to listening to the lonely.

We can ask ourselves are we really paying attention to those who are often silent? Do we see the lonely? Do we listen to them?

People can be lonely in a crowd of people. Perhaps they are elderly. Perhaps they are children. Perhaps we just think they are shy or don’t want to talk. How do we know until we try to engage them? Why do we shy away and not make the first move?  Is it not worth the effort just to make sure that those who are silent are invited to be heard?

We are asked today to watch for those who are lonely, invite them to speak and listen to them on a soul to soul level.

That is the HOPE. And so it is.

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

-Affirm…I am loved.

-Meditate/pray…ask…”What is my next step for my highest good and the highest good of all?” Listen for the soul’s answer.

-Drink lots of water.

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

-Engage the lonely.

What made me smile yesterday…

-A good book.

-Dinner with the family.

-An easy trip to the hotel for our early flight.

-Talking to Cathy.

Love, Blessings and Gratitude,

Rev. Chris
