Thanksgiving Blessings to you Wellspring Family and Friends:

Irish poet, author, priest and philosopher John O’Donohue wrote, “In the parched deserts of postmodernity, a blessing can be like the discovery of a fresh well. It would be lovely if we could rediscover our power to bless one another. I believe each one of us can bless. When a blessing is invoked, it changes the atmosphere”.

Today, as we sit together and share in devotion, reflection, communion, and partake in a meal with one another, let us share words of blessing with one another as we remember God’s blessing in our lives through this poet’s prayer of blessing:

“May the light of your soul guide you,

May the light of your soul bless the work you do,

with the secret love and warmth of God’s heart.

May you see in what you do the beauty of your own soul.

May the sacredness of your work bring healing, light

and renewal to those who work with you,

and to those who see and receive your work.

May your work never weary you,

May it release within you wellsprings of life

refreshment, inspiration and excitement.

May you be present in what you do

May you never become lost in the bland absences.

May the day never burden.

May dawn find you awake and alert, approaching your new day

with dreams, possibilities and promises.

May evening find you gracious and fulfilled,

May you go into the night blessed, sheltered and protected.

May your soul calm, console and renew you”.

Blessed by you, and Grateful for you,

Pastor Cheryl
