Image result for photos of when less is more

For your consideration…

I’ll let you decide why this picture is perfect for today’s message. I love it. Is this lady wearing everything to draw attention away from who she is? Or is she wearing all of the stuff to make a bold statement declaring that this is exactly who she is?

We probably have all heard the saying, “Less is more.” Our message today is about just that but it wants it to be made clear that it is not always the case. It all comes down to truth and sincerity. Of course, there are some things where it is always true. It is always better to have less anxiety, fear etc. But for most things truth and sincerity are the qualifiers.

Most of us would say that we can never have too much love, goodness or help. But if the love, goodness or help comes from ego versus the heart, they can cause more harm then good. We might think that we can never have too much money. But if the money comes from ill begotten means or is used to bribe etc., less is definitely more. Think about technology. For some the more the better but for others it causes frustration. Think about time. More time used wisely is great. More time used poorly causes more harm than good.

You get the point. More…or less….is can be awesome or horrendous and anything in between. It is all about where it is coming from and how it is applied.

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.

-Think about “when less is more” and visa versa.


What made me smile yesterday….

-Dianne and Gary had a safe and a little less stressful trip home.

-A good book.

-Lots of time by the pool on an absolutely picture perfect day.

-Catching up with Alex and Jackie.


Love, Blessings and Gratitude,
