For your consideration…

Today’s message is another task. For some, it may be easier than yesterday’s but for some of us, it may be harder.

Today is Sunday. It should be a day of rest but rarely is anymore. Our message acknowledges this but asks us to do this. “Set the intention that today is a day of joy.” No matter what we decide to do, we are asked to do it with joy. If we find ourselves slipping, no judgment. Simply return to the intention of joy.

This is a practice. If we can do this today and on other Sundays, perhaps it will be easier to do it every day. That is the goal.

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.”

-Set the intention…“I will everything today in a state of joy.”

-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. Try to get your bare feet on Mother Earth at least for a minute.


What made me smile yesterday…

-Catching up with my sister.

-Viber calling with Alex.

-Some crafting.

-A good book.

-It’s a new day alright. We had a notary come to the house and everything had to be signed on the front porch.


Love, Blessings and Gratitude,

Rev. Chris
