For your consideration…..

In this PC world there is an emphasis on eliminating contrasts. It is about covering up the differences. Celebrating wins is often discouraged in children’s games rather than teaching valuable lessons and graciousness to both the winners and the losers.

We are reminded today that it is the contrast that allows us to see. It is the contrast that points us to consequences and our lessons…..good and bad. Without contrast we would simply not be able to differentiate the differences between good and bad or evil, right and wrong, joy and misery, HOPE and despair, love and hate etc.

Without contrast our power would be diminished to nothingness. We would have no need for it. We need to remember that when are eliminating differences. Eliminating contrasts robs us of our ability to make choices good and bad. It robs us of our ability to learn our lessons and grow into our life purpose.

We are reminded today to celebrate contrasts. Be grateful for contrasts.

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.

-Honor you power. Look at the contrasts and make your decisions.

What made me smile yesterday…..

-Good news about Gary…answered prayers.

-A chill day at Stillwater.

-A good book.

-A glass of wine visiting with my Stillwater neighbor, Holly.

Love, Blessings and Gratitude,

Rev. Chris
