For your consideration…

Almost all of the time we are ad-libbing as we go. We are not operating from a script. Every one of us is living a very different life from every other person. We have different values, opinions, responsibilities, life purpose, families, languages etc. On top of that, no two days are the same. Time is ever-changing. If we think about that, it is a wonder that we have successful communication at all.

Our message today tells us to stop beating ourselves up. It reminds us to just do the best we can and give others the benefit of the doubt. HOPEfully they will do the same for us.

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.

-Do the best we can and not be too harsh or judgmental on ourselves.


What made me smile yesterday…

-The rain held off so we got at least 1 recess in. It is tough on little ones to be cooped inside all day.

-Ugh. I ordered the wrong dryer BUT we got great delivery people who helped us out and I have successfully ordered the right one.

-Alex is almost ready to start her trip home. We are so excited to have her here for an extended visit.

-A good book.

-Dianne and I have a plan.


Love, Blessings and Gratitude,

Rev. Chris
