Christmas blessing

Dearly Beloved, Grace and Peace to you.                     In your deepest darkness         may the eyes of God                 twinkle like stars.

May the sounds of the world         become song,                 become angelic.

May you always hear,         like voices in the next room,                 glory.

May God come,         whole,                 into your life.

May you receive         the most holy gift                 of wonder.

May God give you the courage         of the young mother                 in the darkness.

May you hear the song         of the presence of God                 within you.

May your ordinary life         be a sign of God's nearness                 to the lowly.

May all the refugee families         in your world                 find shelter.

May you always ponder         the mystery of your dear,                 umbilical life.

May the cries         of the Christ child                 keep you awake.

            Deep Blessings, Pastor Steve
