Christmas Blessings

Here’s a Christmas benediction from Roddy Hamilton’s Mucky Paws website. It is inspired by Simeon’s song (Luke 2:25-27).

Christmas Benediction

May all wonder find a place in your soul
and dance with you unexpected steps;

May all joy be at home within your heart
and weave a sacred rhythm throughout this life and all to come;

May unsolved mysteries make your life an adventure
and pull you towards unknown places waiting for you since the very beginning;

May blessing be your forever-companion
and cradle you, strengthen you and love you always;

May all stillness coorie (snuggle) into your soul
forging a peace that gives to all things a place;

May the ebb and flow of life be a daily gift
offering times of pain and celebration and healing;

and may God let you see what others miss:
promise cradled in every wonder,
the flow of life shaping a sacred story
where love, and you, dance together daily.

And when eyes that have seen all living
draw into focus salvation’s intent,
may they recognise at days end
a promise, a deed, a gift
fresh born in the world.
