January 2018

Another new beginning. I would like to share with you a blessing from one of my favorite authors, John O'Donohue, from "To Bless the Space Between Us". A Blessing for a New Year:

"On the day when the weight deadens on your shoulders

And you stumble, may the clay dance to balance you.

And when your eyes freeze behind the gray window, and the ghost of loss gets into you,

May a flock of colors, indigo, red, green and azure blue,come to awaken in you, a meadow of delight.

When the canvas frays in the Curragh of thought, and a stain of ocean blackens beneath you,

May there come across the waters a path of yellow moonlight to bring you safely home.

May the nourishment of the earth be yours,

May the clarity of the light be yours,

May the fluency of the ocean be yours, May the protection of the ancestors be yours.

And so may a slow wind work these words of love around you

An invisible cloak to mind your life."

May this new year bring to you and all your loved ones the awareness of the beauty, contentment and joy that is yours for the asking. May the Divine Presence bless you greatly with health, love and every good thing. May you discover much happiness on your journey through life.

In the words of St. Teresa of Avila: "Let nothing disturb you, let nothing frighten you; all things are passing; God never changes; patient endurance obtains all things; who God possess in nothing is wanting; God alone suffices."

Many Blessings!
