Benediction

For Don and I 2006 has been an amazing year of discovery and unity at the core of our marriage. Not all of it has been easy, but all of it has been worth it! We look forward with anticipation at what is to come in 2007. We pray God’s blessings on you in this new year! I find these words to be a fitting end to a year of blogging (albeit sparse at times). May the following words create a spark in your mind and heart as it has me. Happy New Year!
Franciscan Benediction

May God bless you with discomfort
At easy answers, half-truths, and superficial relationships
So that you may live deep within your heart.

May God bless you with anger
At injustice, oppression, and exploitation of people,
So that you may work for justice, freedom and peace.

May God bless you with tears
To shed for those who suffer pain, rejection, hunger and war,
So that you may reach out your hand to comfort them and to turn their pain into joy.

And may God bless you with enough foolishness
To believe that you can make a difference in the world.
So that you can do what others claim cannot be done
To bring justice and kindness to all our children and the poor.
