After I finally began to notice the blessing at the end of our church service, I quickly realized that it doesn't change weekly but more like seasonally. So today, after several weeks of the same blessing, we have a new one. And, a lovely one it is:
Life is short, and we do not have much time to gladden the hearts of those who travel the way with us. So be swift to love. Make haste to be kind. And as we go, may the blessing, the peace, the love, and the joy of the Holy One Who is in the midst of us be among us and in our hearts this day and always.
