Friends. Here we are. A new dawn. A new day. Feeling good?
Whatever your thoughts about the year ahead, may grace and peace and love and joy and hope surround you and overflow from you.
May you find joy in loosening your sail to the wild wind of the Sprit.
May your good hair days far outnumber the bad ones.
May your roots grow down ever deeper into the soil of God’s love for you - may you know how wide, how long, how high and how deeply you are loved.
May you abide well.
May your eyes and heart be open to wonder and awe.
May your trains never be cancelled or delayed.
May you choose joy, even on the days that grief is the weight you carry.
May your queues for brunch always be short.
May you be forever changed by all the good gifts around you.
May you know you have the shoes you need for your journey and the strength and grace to match your day ahead.
May you be bold enough to tell the Rogers at work to stop mansplaining your actual job to you.
May you be brave enough to say yes.
May you be brave enough to say no.
May you be hopeful enough to keep asking.
May your community be wide and deep and rich in all the good things.
May your joys abound.
May your children sleep through the night.
May your children return safe from the night.
May sabbath guide your days and lead you to better rhythms of life.
May you never carry your sorrows alone.
May you know life in all its fullness.
Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.
Grace, peace, love and hugs x x
