For your consideration….

We have often heard “words matter.” We are reminded that they can be uplifting or they can wound others. It is an important message but today the same message is a little different.

“Words matter, choose wisely.” Today that message is about us. The words we choose affect us weather we realize it or not. The words we choose reflect our attitude. Our attitude affects the energy we are outputting and in turn will be returned to us. Our words attract energy.

We are asked to think about “stretch goals” when choosing our words. We are often reminded on the impact of reflecting on gratitude at the end of our day. Today we’re told that verbalizing our excitement, HOPEs and dreams at the beginning of each day can have an enormous impact. So we want to choose positive words. We want to choose words that expect good….no exceptional…. things like success, joy, laughter, wisdom, HOPE etc. We want to choose uplifting words.

Think about that word “exceptional.” Think about how different our day will be when we begin it expecting exceptional. In essence we are putting our order into the Universe and we are setting our minds up to look for it to be delivered.

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.

-Choose our words wisely.

What made me smile yesterday…..

-Hearing our little Japanese students speak not only their own language but the many new English words they pick up every day.

-“Why?” Yes, the question can be annoying when it is used automatically and to buy time to avoid doing a task. But it is magical when little eyes look up at you and sincerely ask, “Why?”

-Oh yeah, a new reality for our dog, Dude. Our electronic dog fence has not worked for about 3 years and he has never left the yard. Suddenly, he started wandering to our neighbors so we had to get it fixed. Looking out the kitchen window we watched him start to walk to the neighbors. We saw the moment he heard the beep and laughed as he high-tailed it back towards the house.

-I love my Alex’s “can do” attitude and the fruits of it.

Love, Blessings and Gratitude,

Rev. Chris
