My wish for you . . .As you receive the gift of this new year, one day at a time, one breath at a time, my wish for you is for beauty. Beauty of the soul, where you relax into the shape of who you are, created in the image of God and held by nail-scarred hands.
Beauty of the eye, seeing the splendor of what is above,
What is around you, the exquisite very near,
Even your scars.
All that you have lived
and danced through
wraps up into you,
going forward today,
only this day,
for we have no other.
I wish for you beauty of the skin, soft breezes or brisk winds
gentle rains or strong waves
Beauty for your ears, listening to the music of rustling leaves, crunching snow, crackling fire, to the hearts of those God brings to you
And to your heart
And song. Always song.
Praise gives us life.
Where do you find the beauty in your life?
