For your consideration……

I am a little surprised this message did not come through on Wednesday when the day carried so much energy for new growth and beginnings for a new era. But it didn’t and instead it showed up today.

Today’s message is very simple. It was exactly this, “You never know when you will be the spark to someone’s new beginnings.” And I would add someone will provide the spark for a new beginning in us.

Perhaps it is a kind word of encouragement. Perhaps it is lending an ear and being a sounding board. Perhaps it is just within the context of a conversation. Perhaps it is just being a there for support. Perhaps it is in the exchange of ideas. Perhaps it is in something we write. Perhaps it is in something we do.

We are put in each other’s paths for a reason. There are no coincidences. Today’s message wants us to realize the importance of that….the importance of us….the power of being us.

That is the HOPE. And so it is.


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

-Meditate/pray. Get centered.

-Drink lots of water.

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

-When you are saying or journaling what you are grateful for, notice those who provided the spark.


What made me smile yesterday…….

-Ahhhh first graders. Talk about sparks.

-The sun. We have seen the beautiful sun for 2 days in a row. There can never be too much sun for me.

-An early early bed time for a busy busy day today.

-My baby is coming home TOMORROW.


Love, Blessings and Gratitude,

Rev. Chris
