For your consideration…

I don’t know about you but when I hear shiny and bright, I immediately think about the Christmas season. Today’s message is not about Christmas but it is a good place to start when considering our message. Think about how we feel when we expect, get, or see things shiny and bright. It makes us happy and joyous.

Today we were gifted with a bright and shiny new day. We can not begin to imagine all that is can and will be. But we can expect that if we treat it with the same excitement and gratitude we would any other gift, our rewards will be bigger, shinier, brighter.

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….at least half your body weight.

-Get outdoors and take in at least 10 deep breaths.

-Set the intention to receive a bright and shiny day tomorrow.


What made me smile yesterday…


-Don and Mary came for dinner.

-The patio is somewhat fixed.

-Mary and I video called James and Alex.

A good book and an early bedtime.


Love, Blessings, and Gratitude,

Rev. Chris
