Sunday Blessing: For Celebration

Sunday Blessing: For Celebration

It is the first of July, it is the start of my vacation. I rode with my husband over a beautiful mountain pass that is only open for a little while each summer. I have two nights with him at the trailer, and then home to Bend for a couple of days before I take the three boys to my island. It is a time of celebration. A time to enjoy the long days and warm nights. The following blessing from To Bless the Space between us by John O’Donohue seemed perfect. Go in peace.

Now is the time to free the heart,
Let all intentions and worries stop,
Free the joy inside the self,
Awaken to the wonder of your life.

Open you eyes and see the friends
Whose hearts recognize your face as kin,
Those whose kindness watchful and near,
Encourages you to live everything here.

See the gifts the years have given,
Things you effort could never earn,
The health to enjoy who you want to be
And the mind to mirror mystery.
