For your consideration….

Today’s message makes me laugh. Even though it sounds serious, it came in light-hearted. Picture a fire nipping at your heels. All you want to do is scream and run but some smart_ _ _ is saying just stay calm an mosey on out of the building. Yeah, it seems like a parody and did make me laugh.

We are calmly being reminded not to take life too seriously. Remain calm and enjoy the moment we are in and remember that every little thing will be alright. Learning how to remain calm is one of the best ways to ensure that. Learning how to remain calm is a gift to ourselves and a gift to others. It is contagious.

How do learn to remain calm? Practice, practice, practice. Practice meditation and/or mindfulness. Remember your breath. Practice controlling it. It goes with you wherever you go. It is your reset button.

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.

-Practice calm.

What made me smile yesterday…

-Sitting in the sun.

-Organizing all of my craft paper and cleaning up my work area.

-A great easy dinner.

-My women’s circle.

Love, Blessings and Gratitude,

Rev. Chris
