May the Lord God bless you each step of Life’s way.
May you learn each day to open yourself to love and the blessings of love.
May you find a stick to lean on when the road is hard – and not use the stick to beat yourself.
May you be blessed with life’s abundance and blessed in poor days too,
learning again what really matters, what lasts.
May you never give in to despair or the lie that nothing can change.
May you find ways of life and walk them with courage,
knowing that every step is within the heart of Christ who holds all our days in love. Amen
