For your consideration…

The message is exactly this, “God helps those who help themselves.” Yikes. That sounds harsh. But it did not come in that way and it is not meant to be harsh. The message came in via my mom and this was a frequent phrase of hers. It was meant to motivate us into action.

And that is what today’s message is. It is a reminder that we can always do something. We must be willing to at least take a step towards what we want. We may not know all the steps that will follow and the exact outcome but we do not need to. We just need to be willing to help ourselves by showing our willingness to start by helping ourselves.

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.

-Be willing to help ourselves. Be willing to do the work.


What made me smile yesterday…

Love, Blessings, and Gratitude,
