wisdom guides our lives
and what humanity discovers
you have designed.
The Lord will bless your towns and your fields.
The Lord will bless you with many children, with abundant crops, and with many cattle and sheep.
The Lord will bless your grain crops and the food you prepare from them.
The Lord will bless everything you do.
Deuteronomy 28: 1-6, Good News Bible
I cringe at good-byes. I fear them,
and sometimes refuse to deal with them.
Help me see how I tie Your hands
when I bind myself to the past.
Gather all the good in every good-bye
and teach me how to use it
to welcome tomorrow.

Just as the branch cannot
bear fruit by itself
unless it abides in the vine,
neither can you
unless you abide in me.
Lord Jesus come live in
my heart and fill my mind
with your words of truth.
May my life represent you.
