A Blessing for the New Year

O Holy One,

May this day be blessed by the breath of life flowing in us and through us.
We give thanks for the past year, for all the ups and downs, and through it all that You were with us.

May you bless our hearts with openness and courage to embrace each moment
as a precious gift.

May we continue to grow, change, and receive each day with renewed hope and trust in Your infinite love.

May we share this gift of love freely given to us with those who feel apart and alone.

In Your Name We pray,

Amen.

Gratitude List 2017 + Poem

Grateful for getting through first year of post divorce; walking through litigation over custody; retaining my sanity through it all…relatively; being a dad to my little girl and putting her first; spiritual principles that guide my life; laughter, tears and all the things in between; for family and friends that trudged with me through the lows and highs of this year.

I am grateful for the breath of life coursing through me, and grateful I can wake up and be grateful. There was a time where I woke up hating life, and glad those dark days are behind me.
