Lent isn’t always about giving something up…sometimes it’s about walking through the desert, and surviving without giving into hate, or the voices in your head that tell you that you aren’t worth living.
Here’s a blessing for you.
Because you are still here,
And it’s been a year, of ::gestures inarticulately:: everything.
And we need all the blessings we can get.
So here’s a bless this mess.
A blessing on your head,
one that grants you good dreams,
and moments of respite,
and times to let go,
and moments to connect with your beloveds,
and reminders that your worth is not defined by your productivity
and that its ok not to be ok
and that this is not the new normal, nor should it be.
So all the blessings–
for being here,
and doing the things
and being you.
Keep at it! Take breaks,
Drink water, take care of yourself,
and be blessed,
For you are a beloved child of God.
No matter what.
God bless you, Child of God.
Today, Tomorrow, and Always.
