For your consideration……

It feels like this is a message we have been given before but needs shoring up. The truth is the truth…. period. It does not need to be dressed or prettied up. It does not need to be embellished or adored. It is best left naked. The truth simply is what it is. We can say it and even defend it but we need not argue about it. It is perfectly capable of standing on its own. It must stand on its own.

We need only listen to the news to see the truth biased, politicized or minimized. We recognize when this is happening because we feel it in our soul. We feel the unrest. No matter how it is justified we feel the hidden agenda that covers theĀ  truth. Somehow we have come to accept that coloring the truth is not exactly lying. But it is. Children often cover or expand the truth when they want something or have done something a little on the shady side of the boundaries. We correct them. But somehow over the years adults fall back into the same habit and often there is no correction.

We are reminded again today that we are in a new dimension. Only the truth will do. Say and act only on the NAKED truth and accept nothing less in return. The truth is good enough. It is exactly perfect.

That is the HOPE. And so it is.

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

-Meditate/pray……focus on your own truth. Live your naked truth.

-Drink lots of water.

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

-Feel the pressure relieved when you let go and simply live your own truth. What do you know for sure? Journal it.

What made me smile yesterday……..

-Being able to help and make a difference.

-So grateful for my own daughters.

-Counting the days until my Alex will be home.

-A haircut.

-An early bedtime.

Love, Blessings and Gratitude,

Rev. Chris
