Artist, Bahman Farzad

For your consideration…

Today’s picture actually came in via examples of sports. Sports can teach us many valuable skills. The art of graceful winning and losing, being a valuable member of a team, hard work, fun etc. Today’s message used swimming and track as an example. It was this message;

“The only person you are out to beat is yourself. Do your personal best.”

We are reminded that our life is not about being like someone else or competition with them. It is not about being the favorite son or daughter or being the favorite friend etc. It is about doing our personal best and being the best we can be. That is our job. That is our life purpose.

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.

-Commit to your personal best.

What made me smile yesterday…

-A trip to the nail salon.

-A good book.

-A chill afternoon.


Love, Blessings and Gratitude,

Rev. Chris
