For your consideration…….

Often we are told it is all good. When we keep that in mind, today’s message is easier to understand.

We learn….we gain wisdom….in the contrasts……

We appreciate light because we know darkness and visa versa.

We know joy because we know sadness.

We appreciate summer because we experience winter…and spring and fall.

We appreciate abundance because we know lack.

We know love because we have seen or experienced lack of love.

We know tolerance because we know intolerance.

We know justice because we know injustice.

We know HOPE because we have experienced desperation.

It is the contrast that enables us to recognize, relate to and grow from the experience. It is all good.

That is the HOPE. And so it is.

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

-Meditate/pray… and renew.

-Drink lots of water.

-Get outdoors and take in at least 10 deep breaths…no matter the weather.

-Be grateful.

What made me smile yesterday……

-A lazy morning at Stillwater.

-A decision made.

-A good book.

-Chinese takeout for dinner.

Love, Blessings and Gratitude,

Rev. Chris
