A Blessing for you....

[*** I think I posted this a while back. But I came across it again, and each time I read it I pray it for my children and family and friends! My advice, say it out loud with your childrens names. It is powerful!]

May God bless you with discomfort at easy answers, half truths, and superficial relationships; so that you may live deep within your heart.

May God bless you with anger at injustice, oppression, and exploitation of people; so that you may work for justice, freedom, and peace.

May God bless you with tears to shed for those who suffer from pain, rejection, starvation, and war; so that you may reach out your hand to comfort them and to turn their pain into joy.

And may God bless you with enough foolishness to believe that you can make a difference in this world; so that you can do what others claim cannot be done.

This I pray upon all my family and friends! In the name of Jesus,
