Something from Sunday's service. Not sure if it will be a prayer, a blessing and sending, but it will be there somewhere...
As this day is long
may you know the shepherds love;
as dark as the night might be
may you know the shepherds presence;
as green as the shepherds pastures are
may you know the abundance of life;
as deep as the valley of death goes down
may you know the place resurrection is met;
as still as the pools are of quiet water
may you know the depth of the shepherd’s peace;
as overflowing as the table is of the heavenly banquet
may your enemies share the fullness of God’s promises;
and as sure as the mercy that follows you every day of your life
may you dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
