For your consideration….
“Just” is such a little word 4-letter word to have so many meanings and usages. No wonder we use the word so much. We can see that for the most part “just” is a positive add to our conversation.
However, today our message talks about using “just” in place of “only or merely.” When we use “just” to judge and/or belittle a person, place or thing, then it is not such a nice 4-letter word. We are reminded today to use “just” positively.
That is the HOPE. And so it is.
Bit by bit, piece by piece, HOPE by HOPE action steps anyone can take….
-Meditate/pray…ask…”What is my next step for my highest good and the highest good of all?
-Drink lots of water.
-Get outdoors and enjoy the end of days of summer. Take in at least 10 deep breaths.
-Think about your words.
What made me smile yesterday…..
-A beautiful day.
-A magnificent evening rainstorm.
-A great dinner with friends.
Love, Blessings and Gratitude,
Rev. Chris
