In today’s PoP (Place of Pause), let’s take a moment to BE STILL, to tend to where you, those near and dear to you, and strangers in our mighty human family who are in need of hope.

BE Still. Surrender.
In the pain, pause.
In the heartbreak, pause.
Whether you feel a flicker of hope or feel nothin’, pause.
Breathe deep, full, big breaths.
Breathing in hope.
Breathing in love. Breathing in peace.
Stay here for a few more minutes.

Ponder: Take whatever feels hopeless in or around you. Really think about it. Imagine it. What does it look, sound, feel like? Imagine a glow of some goodness entering into the hopelessness … a light, a seed planted and growing, a song of beauty, a shout of truth, a small act with great love. Invite Spirit to be there and to plant in you a seed of hope today. In your way with your voice, write about and ask for a glimpse or a sense of hope’s glow. Even if you feel nothing exceptional right now, be expectant. Be watchful.

A Nudge: Reach out to one person today who needs a bit of hope’s glow. A stranger or a friend. Someone near or far.

Let’s together commit
not to give up or label any place or person as hopeless,
to bring hope’s rays to bear in places that many would say
are beyond its reach, to look for, find, and kindle hope’s glow,
even when it is just a tiny flicker.

The darker the places and the greater the heartbreak, the more we need hope and each other.
There are endless flickers of hope,
no matter how dark the day,
for you and for our entire common human family.

Given the state of our world – the Corona virus pandemic, school and work closures, challenges to global markets and personal paychecks – we must take a few moments to BE still and to pause. These days, more than ever, there has been much clamoring for our attention 24-7 with LOUD, FEAR-based, PANIC-inducing messages – but let’s practice peace, together, amidst these stormy days. I share these PoPs so you can FILL UP with peace and navigate this wild and crazy season with strength and courage.

You are loved.
You belong.
We belong to each other.
Let’s standTALL together and light up the world!

My love is with and for you, my friend. Have a most blessed and beautyFULL day!
