Good to You

Whether in the midst of drought’s stern form
or in the aftermath of pounding storm,
whether deeply held in aching grief
or in celebration of true release,

whether in the midst of life’s hardest working
or enjoying the rest of a few days’ shirking,
whether enjoying the peace of solitude
or surrounded by a boisterous brood,

whether in the midst of a long journey’s roam
or in the warm grace of your own home,
whether pursuing the dream of some great goal
or content in the wellness of your own soul:

I hope that on this good day,
   the truest of peace will come your way.
I hope that God’s own grace
   will help you through whatever you face.

I pray that you will clearly see
   the goodness that has found you
and feel the soothing presence
   of the love that surrounds you.
