A BLESSING FOR THIS TIME
May you know this…
Your quiet sobs are echoing with the sobs of all who despair
in a resounding cry for justice.
Your many tears are joining with the tears of all who weep
into an overflowing river of compassion.
Your deep heartache is connecting with the heartache of all who mourn
in a tender bond of companionship.
Your individual futility is uniting with the futility of all who lament
to become a force for good.
Your anguished longing is expanding with the longing of all who yearn
to serve as a vessel of greater peace.
Your unanswered questions are universal questions
and the answer is always love.
Your trembling feet are still standing in the presence of God
and you are on holy ground.
