For your consideration…

It is funny. The definition of “surprise” is “unexpected.” Yet often, we expect surprises on special days like birthdays, Christmas, vacations etc. It is kind of a contradiction.

Today’s message tells us that we receive surprises each and every day. Even with the best laid plans, the unexpected happens. On days where we expect surprises we are excited. Think about how that feels. Think about the enthusiasm and excitement.

We are asked to great today and each day with the same enthusiasm and excitement. We are lucky to be here. Surprises await us. Opportunities await us. Put on a smile filled wth HOPE and prepare to be surprised.

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.

-Expect to be surprised at the beginning of the day and reflect on the them at the end of the day.

What made me smile yesterday…

-A day off.

-Lots of tasks done.

-A good book.

-Catching up with Jackie, Shannon and Alex.

Love, Blessings and Gratitude,

Rev. Chris
