For your consideration….

When I travel, I make it a habit to pick up a stone. The stone is not necessarily special. It is just something that has caught my eye. I keep it in my pocket to remind myself why I am on vacation, to let go of worries and troubles, have fun, seek clarity, give and receive love etc.

Our message today asks us to do exactly this. Grab a stone and keep it with you. When you feel stressed, reach for it and rub it. Remind yourself why it is there. Perhaps we have a more specific reason or wish. Write an affirmation and repeat it whenever we reach for the stone.

A stone like us is a creation of God. We are asked to let it be a tool to remind, nurture and comfort us.

That is the HOPE. And so it is.

Bit by bit, piece by piece, HOPE by HOPE action steps anyone can take…

-Affirm…“I am loved.”

-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.

-Find a stone.

What made me smile yesterday…

-Catching up with Jackie and Alex.

-Hearing from Jul.

-A reading with Sandra.

-Laundry and shopping done.

-Bruce quit smoking. Fingers crossed.

-A good book.

Love, Blessings and Gratitude,

Rev. Chris
