I am sharing with you the contents of Willa’s birthday greeting for me. The birthday is on the seventeenth but Willa’s card reached me today:
May your inner life be transformed so that you can see more clearly your own journey with all humankind as a journey of peace, hope and bondedness.
May your God be someone you can lean on in your weak and painful moments.
May you know your God as your rock, your shelter, your strength, your wing of comfort and your support.
May you be aware of the places your feet carry you in the years to come. May you know “How beautiful are the feet of the messenger of good news.”
May you not be afraid of the questions that press upon the mind and heart. May you welcome the questions and wait patiently for the day when they will have their answers.
May you be the one with welcome in your smile and hello etched upon your hand, the hand you extend to everyone who blesses you with presence.
May yours be the gift of reverence for all created things. May you face bravely and enthusiastically the responsibility to preserve and care for the beauty of the earth.
May the wellsprings of compassion flow deep within you.
May you awake each morning with thank you on your lips and in your heart recognizing that all is gift, that all is blessing.
May your friendship with God be strong and healthy. May that love be both a comfort and a challenge as you struggle to find your way in the coming years.
May your spirit be open and perceptive in discovering the will of God for you.
May your prayer be that of wisdom, guidance and a deeper understanding of God’s way for you.
May you be a living legacy to your God.
Thank you for the card and the blessings, Willa!
