Blessing 1: Moments of Grace

I feel compelled, during this week where I am Cultivating Sacred Space on the theme of “Blessings” that I write some.  This is not my usual writing style, even though I love the rich imagery and stylistic writing of blessings that others have written.  So, I am going out on a limb and trying to put the daily blessings that I encounter (my small points of light) into words of blessing to share.  

Today, I was struck by moments of unexpected beauty and grace.  This is my wish for each of you today (and Happy St. Patrick’s Day!)

Blessing: Grace in Unexpected Moments

May the unexpected moments of life

catch you blissfully unattached to your own expectations,

and allow you to seize moments of joy.

May you find yourself hearing words

that you didn’t expect to be spoken,

and in hearing them, may your heart be moved.

May you catch a glimpse of beauty

in a place where you least expected to see it,

and in that glance, may you see the hand of God.

May others see the Light in you

in the quiet and luminous ways that spirit shines,

and may you share that connection as a Holy moment.

May the grace of the unexpected moment

fill you with the blessing of Divine Presence

and bring you continued growth for the journey you travel.
