A Christmas Blessing

By: Joyce Rupp

May there be harmony in all your
relationships. May sharp words,
envious thoughts, and hostile feelings
be dissolved.

May you give and receive Love
generously. May this love echo in
your heart like the joy of church bells.

May the hope of this sacred season
settle in your soul. May it be a
foundation of courage for you when
times of distress occupy your inner

May the wonder and awe that fills the
eyes of children be awakened within

May the coming year be one of good
health for you. May you have energy
and vitality. May you care well for your
body, mind, and spirit.

May you go often to the Bethlehem
of your heart and visit the One who
offers you peace. May you bring
Peace into our world.
