For your consideration….

Today’s message can be about anything in life and be for everyone. I’m sure of the reason it is appearing for me today because the message came in about “giving and receiving gifts.

Obviously both the giver and receiver of gifts have a role. We have had messages before about them. Today it is stressed once again that whether we are the giver or the receiver, we do it from our heart.

But today’s message takes gifting one step further. It reminds us to detach from the outcome. This means that if someone is giving us something, we should receive it graciously from our heart even if that is not how it was given. Meaning even if it was begrudgingly given, we should graciously accept from a loving and sincere heart.

On the flip side. If we are the giver, we should gift with a fully loving heart. Then detach from the outcome. How the gift was received is not important. The only thing that is important is that we have acted from a loving heart. Whether our gift was received or rejected, how it was received, how it was used etc, is of no consequence. For the giver, it is only their own action of love that is important.

We are reminded today act with love and detach from the outcome.

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.

-Act with love and detach from how it is received.

What made me smile yesterday…

-Another beautiful day.

-Getting things straightened out with Bruce’s doctor appointment.

-Catching up with Jackie and Jodie and both of my girls, Shannon and Alex.

-Beautiful graduation pictures of Mackenzie.

Love, Blessings and Gratitude,
