Appreciating the Ups and Downs of Life | Reaching for The Sky

For your consideration…

“Life Series” is what our message came in as. We are told that life is a series…patterns. There are ups and downs, light and darkness, happiness and sadness, hectic and calm etc.

It is important to know that we can not fully know one without the other. If we think about this it makes sense. Today’s message wants to emphasize something else. When we are on the downside of a life pattern, we have to remember that there Will Be an upside. We need to always hold that HOPE in our hearts. Without HOPE we can not see that there will ever be an upside. We don’t remember that life is a series of patterns. We blind ourselves. We always need to hold onto our HOPE….grow it, fan it,

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 the 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.

-Protect and grow your HOPE.


What made me smile yesterday…

-Open houses on a cloudy day.

-A good book.

-Catching up with my sister.

-A beutiful series of thunderstorms during the night.


Love, Blessings, and Gratitude,

Rev. Chris
