Like the joy of the sea coming home to shore,
May the relief of laughter rinse through your soul.
As the wind loves to call all things to dance,
May your gravity by lightened by God’s grace.
Like the dignity of moonlight restoring the earth,
May your thoughts incline with reverence and respect.
As water takes whatever shape it is in,
May you be so free about who you become.
Like moonlight and water
Find that deep holiness that lives within you.
As time remains free of all that it frames,
May your mind stay clear of worry and stress.
May your prayer of listening
Be deep enough
to hear in the depths God’s stillness, laughter and prayer
May God’s song be vibrant
In your heart and your soul.
