For your consideration…..

I trust that the messages we get are what we need for the moment. But I really think today’s message is great as we have started our work week and are heading towards “hump” day.

Today we are asked the question, “What does dwelling on it get us?” We all run into problems, situations, irritants etc. We can be angry, hurt, anxious etc. Yes, we all have these situations. It is how we learn and grow. It isn’t all about how we handle the great issues. It is also about how we handle the not so great ones.

When we hit these situations or people that give us angst, we are simply not in concurrence. We are not on the same page. OK. So what page are we on? What is our position? What can we live with and what can’t we?

To answer those questions we need to step back…..actually step up…..and take a higher look. When we step up, we get freedom and clarity. We can see what we can live with, accept…our clear position.

The key to today’s message is that we get the clarity, state it and apply it, then LET IT GO.

When we dwell on things, we tend to not follow through. So our action and words become hollow to ourselves and others. Dwelling on the negative consumes all of our space and leaves no room for positive energy. It stomps out our creativity.

We are being asked today to not dwell on what we don’t want and instead focus on what we do.

That is the HOPE. And so it is.

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

-Meditate/pray. Let your creativity and excitement bubble up.

-Drink lots of water.

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

-Remember that your breath is your reset button. Pause and take a few deep breaths to relieve tension and stress.

What made me smile yesterday……

-My brother took us to the airport for our trip home.

-Alex is soooooo excited about her first takeoff and landing on an aircraft carrier. We can not wait until she gets back and we can hear about it.

-First day on Shannon’s new job and it was great too. Wahoo.

-Jordan picked us up an brought us home. Thank you, Jordan for staying here and keeping the home front warm and toasty. And keeping Dude happy.

-Ahhh, my own bed.

Love, Blessings and Gratitude,

Rev. Chris
