For your consideration…

Tis the season of believing. We practice since we were children, first in Santa and finally the true meaning of Christmas with the birth of baby Jesus to the Virgin Mary.

Our message today is about taking that practice of believing and step farther. It asks us to ground ourselves in that belief. We are asked to ground ourselves in love for ourselves and other. We are asked to let that rooted love sustain and nourish us for the rest of our lives.

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.”

-Ground yourself in that love.

-Remember…You are the keeper of the light. Wherever you go, there can be no darkness.

-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…

-A relaxing day.

-A short visit with Mary, Don, and AJ.

-A visit with my neighbor, Joan.

-Catching up with both of my girls.

-A good book.


Love, Blessings, and Gratitude,

Rev. Chris
