Journeying Prayer



The Maker’s blessing be yours, on your road, on your journey,

guiding you, cherishing you.


The Son’s blessing be yours, wine and water, bread and stories,

feeding you, challenging you.


The Spirit’s blessing be yours, the still, small voice,

wind and fire, joy and wisdom,

comforting you, disturbing you.


The angels’ blessing be yours, on your house, on your living,

guarding you, encouraging you.


God’s blessing be ours,

the blessing of pilgrims all the nights and days of our journey home.

Amen.

    1. Nancy - I long ago gave up on trying to get six grandkids to look at the camera and 'say cheese.' Talk about an exercise in frustration!

Welcome to the table, friend!

This is where we gather and hang out. I'd love for you to pull up a chair and jump right into the conversation. Or simply say 'hello.'

l'll be dropping in to visit you sometime soon ...

Linda
