Cassandra Clare Quote: “You cannot hide your true self forever.”

For your consideration…

It is tempting for sure. All of us want to or do put our head in the sand. Daily life can sometimes be too stressful. No judgement. Sometimes we just need a breather.

But today’s message reminds us that no matter how good it feels…or not…we can not hide for long. Our Authentic Self knows that we have to come out of hiding and face the music head on.

As my husband, Bruce, likes to say, “Buck up, little buck-a-roo.” We have this.

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.



What made me smile yesterday…

-My brother visited Bruce.

-Meeting up with family for Tristin’s graduation.

-A beautiful day.

-Catching up with Shannon.

-Fun dinner and game night.


Love, Blessings, and Gratitude,

Rev. Chris
