For your consideration…

Energy matters. That is the message. It matters and we can not escape it. Whether we are conscious of it or not, we are constantly giving and receiving energy. It is those “vibes” that don’t always make sense. It is those feelings we have that match or don’t match what a person is saying.

I was telling my friend, Jackie, just this morning about my grandson who is not always ready with a smile. People smile at him and he studies them before he decides if and when he will smile for them. But the other night was so special. His other grandparents are in town and as we all sat down for dinner, Conner could not stop smiling. In fact, he smiled the whole night even way past his bedtime. We feel energy no matter how old or young we are. He was joyous because the energy was nothing but love, happiness, and joy. Everyone old or young responds to that.

We can not control the energy that others are outputting. We can control acknowledging what it is and our response. We can control the energy we put out. What is the response we like to get from the energy we put out? Peace? Happiness? HOPE? Joy? Love? We get to decide and choose.

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.

-Choose energy that benefits the highest good of all.


What made me smile yesterday…

-A beautiful day.

-A wonderful day with my friend, Janet.

-A great cooking class.

-So happy that my girls are willing to take Louie so he isn’t home alone for long periods of time.

-School canceled.


Love, Blessings, and Gratitude,

Rev. Chris
