Bless This Day

2014-07-16 06.40.13-1

Bless this day,
All plants and creatures,
All peoples near and far.

Bless the flowers
That sing praise with their beauty,
The grass
That cushions my step.

Bless those who stand
With loved ones who are sick,
With friends or family who are lost.
Bring healing, bring wholeness.

Bless the world,
Its war torn places,
Its broken villages,
Its frightened children.

Bless our bodies,
Our hearts,
Our hands,
That we may be blessings
To all that we meet.

  1. Beautiful words and beautiful photograph. Is that a Colorado lake? Still delighting in meeting you at annual conference.
