For your consideration…….

I love today’s message for a couple of reasons. It is light-hearted. It feels joyous  and fun yet carries a gentle reminder.

For many Black Friday is a fun day or even a tradition. The holiday season is officially off and running and us along with it. While I personally don’t do Black Friday, I have to admit it is fun listening to the strategy, planning and excitement of others.

That is how the holiday season should be. It should be full of fun and excitement. It should be full of joy. It should be full of blessings and love.

Today’s message acknowledges that as a reminder to us to hold that energy throughout the season. Any gift we give, physical and nonphysical, should be given because we want to give it. It should be given with our joy, love and best wishes or not given at all. We don’t want to give anything begrudgingly or because we “have to”.

Everything carries energy. It is important that we give our gifts with our best energy infused in it. Not only will we be happier, we will be making the world a happier place.

Go shop….or not…..and be joyous and happy today.

That is the HOPE. And so it is.


Bit by bit, piece by piece, HOPE by HOPE action steps anyone can take…..

-Meditate returning at least once a day to the calm and peace of your authentic self.

-Drink lots of water. Even though it is colder the furnace dries us out.

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

-Do what makes you happy today.


What made me smile yesterday…….

-An early productive meet up with Shannon.

-A great family dinner at Jeff and Kerri’s. Ymmm.

-Jeff has someone who can fix one of my computers. Yeah.

-A chill evening. Ahhhh.


Love, Blessings and Gratitude,

Rev. Chris
