a blessing
may each year be better than the one that lay before it

may you listen to your longing to be free.

may the frames of your belonging be large enough for the dreams of your soul.

may you arise each day with a voice of blessing whispering in your heart that something good is going to happen to you.

may you find harmony between your soul and your life.

may the mansion of your soul never become a haunted place.

may you know the eternal longing which lives at the heart of time.

may there be kindness in your gaze when you look within.

may you never place walls between the light and yourself.

may [God’s touch] free you from the prison of guilt, fear, disappointment, and despair.

may you allow the wild beauty of the invisible world gather you, mind you, and embrace you in belonging.

most sincerely, kathy
