blessings

You are an alleluia,
a special, unique,
unrepeatable human being.
There has never been anyone
like you and never will be.
You are the joy of God's creation.
— The Blessing Candles

I'm sharing my favorite birthday blessing as today is my daughter's 28th birthday - we will be celebrating it next week when she visits with her family.

In the meantime my heart aches for my friend Holly & the loss of her husband Roger in a tragic helicopter accident last Sunday. I believe this same blessing applies to him also:

Roger, you are an alleluia,
a special, unique,
unrepeatable human being.
There has never been anyone
like you and never will be.
You continue to be the joy of God's creation.

Life is a circle and a cycle. Happy birthday to Roshane and my prayers go out to Roger's family.
