Blessing (three)

May God’s grace carry us
as we go forth into our summers.
I hope we all have time to breathe and laugh.
May you always have food on your table
and family in your home.

Wishing you a great summer.
The world is your Oyster.
You’ve got it!
You can, if you think you can.
Everything is going to be okay.
May everyone be free
of the anxiety of test-taking.

May your days be sunny
and your refrigerator full of food.
May your summer be the best one yet.
May the sun shine brighter
and the lemonade taste tastier
and you sit back and enjoy
the summer nights’ fresh air.

May you remember to smile.
May you laugh deeply and from the belly
with so much joy that it hurts.

I hope you don’t fall into darkness.
May you find happiness and success
in all your endeavors.
May the rain wash away all your fears
and may the sun replace them with adventure.

May life bring you morning flowers
that make you smile away, but
don’t forget about the rainy days
that make those flowers.

May you make a huge difference
in somebody’s life.
Make that difference a positive one.

May you live in good spirits
and have peace in your heart.
May you find joy deep in your heart.

“May the Lord show his mercy upon you.
May the light of his presence be your guide.
May he love you and uphold you.
May his spirit be ever at your side.”  –John Rutter

May the Lord bless you and keep you.
May he make his face shine upon you,
now and forevermore.  Amen.
