Blessing for a Summer Morning

May the dawning of this day
bring you grace to face every challenge,
courage to embrace each opportunity,
and the wisdom to understand
in an even-handed manner
which one lies before you.

May this evening’s passing
find you with a lasting peace
that transcends understanding,
a deep appreciation for both blessing and testing,
a genuine desire to grow in faith, hope and love,
and your heart and mind together

set on the things that are above,
the things that cannot be stolen or destroyed,
the things that last beyond the distractions
of this world’s pretended joys,
those things that will endure
beyond the burn and blaze of the nearest star.
