For your consideration…

Yesterday during a walk on the beach I was drawn to this unusual pairing. How craze is it that a feather, a couple of shells and a piece of sea grass would join together? I took this picture an promptly forgot about it until it was brought forward today in meditation.

Our message reminds us that we can plan and work towards relationships. Sometimes they work out. Sometimes they do not. Sometimes they are perfect but only meant to last a forever. Sometimes they do last forever.

Sometimes we are completely surprised and taken off guard on who shows up to impact our lives. That is the point of today’s message. We never know. But we do know that what and who we need will show up when we need them. It may not be who we thought but it is exactly the right person. So it is important that we do not close ourselves off in our ego’s expectation. Instead we are asked to stay open, ready, HOPEful, excited and trusting. That is the way we create the space needed for new relationships.

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.

-Stay open.


What made me smile yesterday…

-Our sweetest Mackenzie turned 18. What a beautiful young woman she is.

-A great walk on the beach with Dianne and Gary.

-Lounging by the pool.

-We went out to lunch.

-Great texts from my girls made me laugh out loud.


Love, Blessings and Gratitude,

Rev. Chris
