Winter Invocation

May the beauty of a rising sun
reflected in the thin edges
of a long low cloud just above the ridge
brighten your smile this morning.

May the peaceful quiet of frosted grass
give rest to the passing worries,
a gentle soothing that settles your fears.

May the nearness of a loving voice
refresh the rejoicing of your heart,
remind you of the good that is yours.

May the stillness of the dawn
bring calming and quiet
in the midst of all that stirs around you.

May you have grace for every testing,
appreciation for every blessing,
mercy for every moment

and may the Light
be reflected in all that you do
on this good day.
