For your consideration…

I really had to sit with today’s message and figure out how to clarify it. The actual message was exactly this, “Winning is the gift. What we do with it is the prize…the real reward.”

Without judgment, a gift is the same as a challenge. Of course, we all would say, “I rather have the gift, thank you very much.” However, if we really think about it, more often than not a gift does not spur us into action. Certainly, it does propel us as a challenge does.

We are reminded that it is up to us to turn the gifts….all gifts…into a reward. What we do with our gifts make all of the difference to ourselves, our life purpose, to others, to Mother Earth.

That is the HOPE. And so it is.

Bit by bit, piece by piece, HOPE by HOPE action steps everyone can take…

-Affirm…“I am loved.”

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

-Turn gifts into rewards.

-Drink lots of water.

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

What made me smile yesterday…

-A great morning with Alex, James and Moose.

-They were so worried about how the puppy would do on the plane and, of course, he was perfect.

-Sitting out in our yard enjoying the afternoon of another beautiful day and watching our grand-daughter play in a high school golf match.

-My friend, Julie….one of the bravest people I have ever met.

Love, Blessings and Gratitude,

Rev. Chris
