For your consideration……

This is a first for me. A movie scene was played for me as today’s message was delivered. The movie scene is from “The Holiday.” Kate Winslet is in Los Angeles bemoaning a romantic relationship gone bad. While out to dinner with her new neighbor (Eli Wallach) this conversation takes place.

Arthur Abbot: “You, I can tell, are a leading lady, but for some reason you are behaving like the best friend.” 

Iris: “You’re so right. You’re supposed to be the leading lady of your own life, for god’s sake. Arthur, I’ve been going to a therapist for three years, and she’s never explained anything to me that well.”

We have all been called to assume our position in this new dimension. This week we have been given some strong messages. Today we are given a step towards that……assume leadership of our own life.

As women we tend to think it selfish if we think of ourselves first. But that is wrong thinking. We must assume leadership and project it if we want to affect real world change. Let’s be honest. How many times do you just want to jump through the TV and slap a couple of Congressmen and say “straighten up and get to work doing what we asked you to do”, or Putin and Obama? It would be funny if it weren’t so serious.

The world has gone on like this long enough. Time for change. Time for the other half to give it a try. Start today. Assume leadership of your own life.

That is the HOPE. And so it is.

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

-Meditate/pray……feel your own power.

-Drink lots of water.

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

-Be joyous, it is Friday.

What made me smile yesterday……

-Internet and printer both finally up and running again. Yeah.

-I am grateful for my new computer. Each time it had to be restarted it just took moments. Wahoo.

-I finally got to talk to my Alex. Our work schedules collided this week.

-Bob stopped by. We are always glad to see him.

Love, Blessings and Gratitude,

Rev. Chris
