For your consideration…

The bible tells us that in Jesus’ return to Jerusalem people welcomed him by waving palms and laying them on the road before him. Why palms?

In ancient times palms represented goodness, well-being and victory in many countries. They represented HOPE and good fortune. Ancient coins, statues, wall etchings and paintings frequently include palms. They were certainly plentiful and inexpensive and available to all.

And that is the crux of today’s message. We are reminded that goodness, well-being, HOPE, good fortune and victory is available to us. It is not in short supply. We simply need to seek it out.

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?”

-Seek out the good fortune that is ready for you.

-Drink lots of water.

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

What made me smile yesterday…

-A beautiful day.

-Shrubs trimmed.

-A good book.


Love, Blessings and Gratitude,
