For your consideration…….

Today we received lyrics to another song. Isn’t it funny how life works. I am not a Madonna fan so, of course, I recognized the song immediately. In particular we were given specific lines in the song “Like a Prayer”……

Life is a mystery

Everyone must stand alone.

I hear you call my name

And it feels like home.

Life is a mystery. We share it in an often crowded world. It seems like our life is public. But really it is not…..not our true authentic life.

Most of us would like our life plan laid out in front of us. We would like step by step instruction. But in reality, very few of us could handle the enormity of our entire life laid out in front of us.

Whether we want to be or not, there is no choice. We are ultimately on our own in fulfilling this life we have birthed into. We are each responsible for our own life purpose. We share experiences but ultimately it is up to ourselves to make this life what we need it to be. We all have that in common.

We are reminded that each of us was born with a life tool box unique to our own life purpose. We have everything we need. We alone hold the key to our life tool box.

That is the HOPE. And so it is.

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

-Meditate/pray….listen for the opportunities coming your way.

-Drink lots of water.

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

-Write down or at least give thought to what you are grateful for.

What made me smile yesterday…..

-Seeing our daughter, Alex. Being able to give her a hug was awesome.

-Alex’s new house.

-Chilling out with our Babycakes.

Love, Blessings and Gratitude,

Rev. Chris
