For your consideration…..

Who doesn’t love receiving flowers? Flowers are given for many reasons including the very special, “just because.” No matter the purpose, we just feel good when someone presents us with flowers. Rarely are they unwelcome. Today’s message acknowledges the gift of flowers but also wants us to consider the “seeds” from which they grow.

Our message today uses the images of flowers and seeds as an analogy of our actions. Random acts of kindness go a long way to brightening someone’s day. They are almost always welcome and the have a reverberating effect. Now consider going the next step and planting seeds by being an example and a teacher. Can we see how much bigger the possibilities are? Can we see how much bigger and more lasting the effect? Not only are we being asked to be the example and teacher, we are thanked for all of the times that we are.

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 take in at least 10 deep breaths.

-Plant seeds.
