For your consideration…..

Well you know I love this message. HOPE….how sweet the sound of that word is.

Today’s actual message tells us to “stoke HOPE. Why? Because HOPE is the game changer. It changes everything. HOPE is the light in the dark. It is the link between no and maybe and finally yes. HOPE is what changes the “I can’t” to “I can.” HOPE is what makes all things possible.

So today we are asked to “stoke” HOPE. How? First and foremost with gratitude. Gratitude is a magnet drawing more and more of what we are grateful for. Love stokes HOPE. Love is the sanctuary that protects HOPE. Smiles, helping hands, giving and graciously receiving, kindness, respect etc. all stoke HOPE.

We have the tools in our life tool box. We have the skill. We have the choice to “stoke HOPE” or not. Today we are asked to choose yes.

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.

-Stoke HOPE each and every day.

What made me smile yesterday….

-Nails and toes done.

-Lots of book editing done.

-Reading a good book.

-Yeah, finally decision made. Whistler here we come.

Love, Blessings and Gratitude,

Rev. Chris
