For your consideration…

Our Guidance has a great sense of humor and choose to deliver our message through humor. We were given the theme song of the Folger’s commercial. You know this jingle…”The best part of waking up is Folger’s in your cup.”

We are asked the question. What is the best part of your waking today, each day? I’ve heard some say, “That I woke up at all.” Some might say, “having their partner next to them.” Some might say, “That first cup of coffee.” My grandmother used to stack her dinner dishes up and save them for the morning. She loved doing the dishes when no one was up. She listened to the silence of the farm as she looked out over the fields from the window over the sink.

The best part of the morning is unique to each of us. Reflecting on it…no matter how big or small that part is….brings our focus to gratitude. Starting our day in gratitude brings us into a state of joy. It acts as a beacon for more great opportunities to come to us.

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?”

-Drink lots of water.

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

-Celebrate, be grateful.

What made me smile yesterday…

-Another beautiful day. The flowering trees are in full bloom.

-Special children.

-A great night out with Kathy. We not only had fun, we got a lot accomplished.

-A full night of sleep.

Love, Blessings and Gratitude,

Rev. Chris
