For your consideration…….

Today’s message was introduced through example’s in Mother Nature. Whether we want to notice or not, we are seeing signs of the end of summer. Summer crops are waning and fall ones are kicking into high gear. We notice the birds and animals are getting busier starting to store their food for the winter. Plants are changing. Everything is starting to have a more golden than yellow hue to it. We find ourselves questioning whether or not we should take a jacket with us. We even notice a difference in the air we breathe. There is a hint of crispness to it.

Mother Nature gives us and all the birds, animals, insects and plants little nudges that let us know that even though we may be very content where we are, we need to move on. We need to prepare for the next season.

And so it is with us in all of our life. We receive nudges that let us know we need to move on. We need to prepare for the next season, event, stage etc. of life. We get nudges, sometimes big and sometimes little, that move us off dead center. We get nudges that tell us….sometimes force us… take that step.

Prepare to move on. It is a necessity of life. We are well equipped to do so. Pay attention to the nudges.

That is the HOPE. And so it is.

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

-Meditate/pray… yourself up to see, hear and feel the nudges.

-Drink lots of water.

-Get outdoors and take in at least 10 deep breaths. Notice the difference in the air.

-Make a list of what you feel urged to do.

What made me smile yesterday…….

-A chill day in the Pacific North West. It was supposed to rain but was beautiful all day.

-Pedicures for Alex and I.

-Chilling in with Bruce and Alex.

-My phone is working again. Wahoo.

Love, Blessings and Gratitude,

Rev. Chris
