May the road…

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
And rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

In a time of peril, it is very helpful to think of a creation and a world, that is essentially friendly and good. It is also very reassuring to pass a blessing to each other. I wish I had done it more often in more settled times. It is one of those holy habits that add to life’s richness.

So, my friend, may the road rise to meet you. May your life’s journey be aided by good things and good people. In times of darkness, may the sunshine of God’s beautiful presence light up your life. May the things you have planted and hope for in your life, grow and flourish against all odds. And, one day, may we be together again and appreciate all the ordinary things we used to take for granted.

God loves us and holds us. The Spring is sprung. I pray that I am blessing to others today and every day. What more is there to life?
