For your consideration…

Are you thinking that today’s title does not fit with its picture? Are you thinking there is a contradiction? You would be right. So which would you choose?

Deep down we know that we can not stop time. Yet surprisingly, many of us try to or would choose to if they could. Many of us resist change even though it is constant. Even if we are not actively resisting change many of us wake up with the “ho hum” just another day attitude.

But it isn’t just another day. It is a day like no other. We will never see another like it.

We are asked to remember the excitement we have had waking up on Christmas mornings, birthdays, wedding days, birth of children days, vacation days, promotion days etc.

Every day we have the opportunity to choose how we want to wake up to the day. We can choose excitement and anticipation or we can choose ho hum. The choice we make will have significant impact how the day unfolds.

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.

-Decide…ho hum…excitemnet.

What made me smile yesterday…

-A great morning with great students.

-Lunch with Pam.

-Camille and I went to a wonderful Christmas event at Concordia University.

-Dinner at Paesanos.

-A little reading and early bedtime…Great day.

Love, Blessings and Gratitude,

Rev. Chris
