For your consideration……

…….and fly some kites.

I had such difficulty getting a computer to work this morning I had to check back in and make sure this was really the message. Indeed it is. It is a fun message of encouragement.

I know, I know everyone says Ben Franklin was too smart to have done this but we are going with the symbolism of the message today. We are reminded of the spirit of Ben Franklin. He was undeterred. He flew his ideas. He sent them up for trial and waited to see what happened. No matter what he did, no matter what inventions he was working on, he was excited to see what happens. Any bit of new information and/or knowledge was good.

That is what we are being asked to do. Before our ego can shut them down and convince us they are stupid, we are asked to send our ideas up….fly them….and see what they attract. We are asked to discover the possibilities. We are asked to go for them unashamed, undeterred with HOPE, courage and fun in our heart. Play. Experiment. Dream. Believe. Fly your kites with wild abandon. There is no failure, just new information to add to our life tool kit.

That is the HOPE. And so it is.

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

-Meditate/pray…..let your ideas and dreams bubble up.

-Drink lots of water.

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

-Go play. Dream.

What made me smile yesterday……

-A good nights sleep.

-AJ’s soccer tournament. They were the champs showing mad skills.

-Some of my students seeing me and coming up to say hi. I just love that.

-Lunch with my family at Grizzley Peak. Ymmmm.

-Some successful shopping.

-A visit with Dianne, Gary, Vicki and Klaus.

-A 2:00 run into Ann Arbor to pick up Alex and friends.

Love, Blessings and Gratitude,

Rev. Chris
